I never got to finish all my posts on Saturday...It was such a beautiful morning; a bit brisk but very lovely. It had rained a lot during the week so the puddles in Central Park were fantastic. This was Isabella's first experience in puddle playing. As I watched her running through the puddles I tried to remember what it felt like to have water slushing around in my shoes. She seemed more contemplative than ecstatic over the experience.

I'm realizing it is quite impossible to do anything with a toddler around. But I've also been learning that she really likes to help me do things. So with a lot of patience, creativity and redirection we have been working together to make our home wonderful. Here Isabella is helping me make Brian's favorite cookies, oatmeal chocolate chip. Even though we are done with all the measuring and mixing she is signing "more". We'll have to do it again soon, because I really had a great time too.
