Oh Baby - 7 months old and lots of fun

I already can check off one item on my Summer Bucket List because we just came home after 3 days with our 7 month old granddaughter, younger son and DIL. What fun we had and it was a good reminder that we really enjoy doing things with children.

Not only were we happy witnesses to her newly learned skill of clapping, pounding 2 toys together and untying Pooh-bah's shoelaces, but we got a kick our of riding the Merry-go-round and steam train at the park. Baby swim time was a blast as she splashed water all over her face and kicked like crazy while one of us doting adults floated her around the pool.

Fortunately our dog coped well and even let everyone pet her. And the visit was so worth the 7 hour drive each way. Can't wait until we do it again.

  1. They are SO fun to spend time with. Everything is new to them. Just love to watch them figure things out. :) Great that the dog did well; makes future trips easier.

    1. Yes, babies are delightful when they are happy and she is a lot. We even let her pet the dog (they have a dog too) but had to supervise so she didn't pull that poodle hair. Both were ok with that LOL.

  2. Head of the class with you...crossing off a bucket list item that fast! And what a delightful one, at that. Baby girl is an armful! And obviously gifted with all her new skills. Aren't babies just amazing?

    Glad the trip is doable for you and hope more trips are in the plans soon.

    1. She is an armful. Started out life underweight and now is very much in the normal range for her age and working hard at building muscle to be able to crawl. She is our one and only grandchild so of course we think she is amazing LOL.
