Time to play

I try to come up with activites to do with Mady throughout the week. Some weeks are good and we have a lot of stuff planned and other weeks we end up watching too much TV/Movies. This week, however, I am proud to say we had a good week.

As I mentioned in a previous post Mady has really been into her babies lately. As I was cleaning her toys out the other day and putting the baby toys away, I realized Mady really didn't have much in the way of toys. I don't go out and buy her toys on a regular basis. Honestly, the last time I bought her toys was probably Christmas. Books, on the other hand, I buy her all the time. I love children's books and I love reading to her. we went to, where else but Target. I got her a baby stroller, another baby, and play fruit that has a pretend knife and cutting board so you can "cut" the fruit. She was so thrilled and I have seen her play a lot more this past week than in a long time. I was so happy to see that. We played babies, "cut" fruit, and "cooked" with our fruit. The TV was not on near as much as usual.

Giving her babies a bottle
 Another day, we went to the park and played for a while there. It is getting much easier to take her to the park now. She has a little bit more independence and can manage more things. I really enjoy it now actually. Before I would go because it gave us something to do and I know she loved it but now I love it too.

This is typical Mady at the park. So excited!
She probably went down this slide 15 times. She loved it
Then yesterday I decided to try finger painting with her. We headed to Michaels to grab a few supplies and then we were ready. She was unsure at first and of course put it in her mouth then I showed her what to do and she had a blast!

Little unsure

I brought this water out for when we were finished to clean her up but of course she wanted to play it in

Her masterpiece

It was fun. She had a great time doing something different and fun. I love seeing her trying new things and how excited she gets.

Off to pinterest to find some more ideas...this girl has too much energy for me! =)

Happy Saturday!
