This post is FULL of pictures! I liked all of these and decided I didn't want to leave any out.
SPRAY PARK FUN!!
We love Missoula's Spray Parks! They have about 5 parks here that have these really FUN water play areas, and what's best about it is they are FREE! There is one really close to our apartment so we go there almost daily to let Kade play. The first couple of times that we went Kade was really intimidated by all the kids running around and the water shooting everywhere, but one day we decided we would just go and sit to see what he did. We sat down and I told him to go play and he walked away and ran through the sprayer that gets you the most wet! We were dumb-struck! Ever since then, He has gone by himself through the sprayers. He loves going and is always saying "Park! Park! Water! Water!"
Kade coming back to us after running through. He always comes back after every run to spit the water out of his mouth.
Bret trying to get Kade to go through the water.
I actually like playing in the water too-it feels good on a hot day.
Kade is doing really good with Maggie. I can tell that he does love her and that she is someone important in his life. It is really sweet to see him give her kisses over and over. He IS still learning to be gentle with her though!
This is another favorite dress and I wanted to get a picture of it becuase it is getting too small already! She is just a big baby! She is starting to smile and coo at me lately. She loves it when I tickle and kiss her neck, she tilts her head back and enjoys the attention.
Maggie is STILL suprising me by sleeping well! I am SO glad she is doing so good. She usually goes down around 9 or 10 and sleeps from 4 or 5 or 8 hours! The next stretch is a little tougher for her and she wakes randomly sometimes or just stays awake for a while, but by then I let Bret take over (if its 6 or later). Sometimes she will wake earlier and I will hear her squirm and let out an occasional wail and then she will fall back asleep-amazing! I always tell myself that it could change any minute because that is the way babies work. Actually SHE is a great sleeper, I on the other hand have always struggled with falling asleep. I have been doing pretty good, but when she wakes around 4 or 5 in the morning it is pretty hard for me to get back to sleep. There is just something about those early morning hours that my body just won't settle back down! It annoys me pretty bad. Anybody have any good relaxation tips? But hey, at least I get some good sleep at the beginning!
