Claire loves to go on walks. Every day, several times a day, she asks to go on a walk. (and to take a "baff" for some weird reason.) On our typical Monday at Nana's, we went for a walk in the late afternoon - mostly so I could get my much needed exercise. It was sunny out so Claire sported her lovely sunglasses she got from Miss Kris at church. She wears them on all our walks. She also got some new flip flops that day at Target. They were only $2.50. Every year, I try to get some from Old Navy but they sell out before April and I just don't think about flip flops when it's barely 72 degrees out. (that's still very cold to me)We stopped along the way to look at the baby ducks. This mother had 22 ducklings with her! I have never seen so many with one mom. Claire thought they were cute and it was her first time seeing real live ducklings.
We usually let her get out halfway through the walk and play on the playground. She is not much of a player and mostly stands around looking at the other kids. She gets scared when the big kids come up the same time as her and threaten her plan of action.
She recently started jumping off of things and this surprised me when she jumped off a chair the other day. She gets pretty good air. (for an almost 2 year old)
Swinging still takes 1st on Claire's list of things to do. She says "High! High! High!" until you get her high enough. She doesn't understand how to pump her legs yet.
Probably the most exciting thing for her though was when we went potty and afterward we discovered the park bathroom had a Claire-sized sink. What joy! She LOVES to wash her hands and she washed them for a very long time. She was delighted.
She has a fascination with bubbles - any kind, and most of her bath time is spent creating and destroying them.
