It was another scorcher yesterday. Our dryer still isn’t working so we have the lines out back. Although – I think even once the dryer is working we’ll still use the line most often. I forgot how relaxing it is. The girls love to help me hang clothes. At almost 100 degrees Kiah said it was too hot and went back in the house after about 5 minutes.
Samuel went off exploring the yard. he loves anything that spins or rolls. I often find him playing with the wheels on the girls doll strollers. Sometimes he’ll flip his cars and trucks over just to play with the wheels. It was no surprise that he found the pedals of a bike a great toy to play with.
We should probably get rid of that bike, I don’t if another chain would fix it or not.
Samuel was so cute picking up the pins and holding them up in the air – he wanted to help too. It amazes me how he imitates us at this age. He’ll be 14 months on the 21st. I don’t read the developmental articles and books like I did when we only had Kiah. I don’t really remember what’s normal and when they are supposed to hit certain milestones. It’s actually nice not worrying about any of that.
Ava is wearing my Miami Hoppediz wrap. She and Kiah were running around the house looking like they were from the middle east. One of my friends let me borrow a simple piece of cloth to use as a shorty wrap or rebozo for Samuel. Kiah was wrapped in that one.
Back inside throughout the day there was….
