Rainy day activities

It's not raining yet, but it's sure threatening. The babies are down for their morning naps, so I'm having some one on one time with Charlie. I so enjoy this little girl. She's smart, funny, silly, and just so sweet (usually). She has her moments like any kid, but really, she's a LOT of fun.
We have a deck of cards called "52 Activities for You and Your Toddler," that I pull out on days like today when I know we're probably not going to make it outside. It's a pretty nifty and very handy little assortment of boredom-killers for any toddler. Today Charlie picked the card "Water Play," and here are some pics of her spilling water from bowls and measuring cups and pouring into bigger bowls and a pitcher. She really loves this one, and it's a great way to teach her a little bit about measurements and things. Just put a big towel down on the floor and let her go!

Here is a photo of the latest dress that I made for Charlie. I think my workmanship is improving, and I'm so excited to be able to dress my little one in my creations. :) I've even moved into the land of sewing zippers!

  1. That dress turned out really cute! You did a great job! I love the water play. We've tried that a few times with Finn but he just dumps the whole thing on the floor. Maybe another 6 months. ;)
