As a parent, you know that when things get too quiet, it's time to go investigating. Well, usually in our house, it just means that Thad has gone into his room or curled up on the couch with a few books.

Our friends invited us over for an evening bonfire in their yard last weekend. It was a little bit chilly, so I thought it was a great opportunity for Thea to wear her supper warm pink bear suit...she looked so cozy in it, and stayed nice and warm at her first bonfire! Thad also got to wear his Green Bay Packers fleece.

Thad is discovering how much fun it is to be a little helper. He loves to get the broom out and help me sweep. Last week I put some water and dish soap in the basin that we use for washing the dishes and he had some great fun "wash dishes" and putting them in the drying rack while I was working on supper.

Thea is getting really stable at sitting, so we’re on to the next thing ~ jumping! I’ve put her in the johnny-jump-up a few times and she really seems to enjoy it. I have to make sure I do it when Thad is involved in other things, though, as he thinks it is a swing and that he ought to push her in it—which she doesn’t appreciate very much.

Well, we’ve finally gotten into it and pureed some vegetables for Thea to eat. She enjoys eating while we are eating and sometimes really goes after the spoon! She always eyes the cookies when we break them out for dessert—how does she know already that that’s the good stuff??

A few weeks ago, as we were eating our hamburgers, Thad told us that he would like some “grass on” his hamburger. We then noticed that he was pointing to the lettuce that we had put on the edge of his plate rather than on his burger, thinking that he’d be more likely to eat it that way. Guess we were wrong—grass is better ON the burger!

There is a community playground about a 7 minute walk from out house. We have gone there a few times, partly for the walk, and partly because Thad loves the swing that is there. Thea is learning to enjoy it too! We’ll have to move Thad up to the big-boy swing soon so that we don’t have to take turns!
