the farm

at Farm Tots with Harper, Hiram and Reuben. The kids got to play in a bean maze, dig potatoes, pet goats and take a hay ride! The kids are starting to play with each other including a little game of monkey see monkey do on the picnic tables!

oh toddlers, redux!

So, after persistent efforts at redecorating her room, it was decided to put the tall rails back on Unity's crib this weekend. We figured that she might object to this impediment to her interior decorating binges, but much to our bemusement, Unity didn't seem to care too much. In any case, the redecorating stopped.

However, apparently the lack of objection was due to the fact that the 'impediment' wasn't all that impeding. During her so-called-nap today, Unity figured out how to scale the tall rails, climb out of her crib and resume her renovation. And she was more than willing to demonstrate her technique for us when she was asked "How the heck did you get out of your crib?"

So we have put back the toddler rails to keep any accidents from occurring, and we are back to square one.

oh toddlers!

Everyone knows, toddlers like to be busy. They also don't always want to do what they're told. Lately Unity has enjoyed sneaking out of her bed at naptime or bedtime and pulling all her clothes and diapers out of their drawers. We will come in to find her wearing a swim diaper and three pairs of pants with everything else strewn about the floor. One afternoon she and I were both napping, or so I thought. I went in to check on her and found this little scene: apparently she had worn herself out with her redecorating and fell asleep with a bag of diapers as a pillow. Also- sometimes toddlers like to color at the Art Museum.
