Sporty (9/14-20)

We played around outside, with balls and bats this week.  Liam is so naturally sporty.  He seems to know how to swing a bat without help.  And loves to play basketball and catch and soccer.  Lots of fun time outside in San Francisco's summer - otherwise known as fall.


We met up with some preschool friends at Off the Grid, a food truck gathering in the Presidio.  The kids had lots of fun playing with our friends' tball set.


Our sporty boy was a natural.


Even Ravioli got to come along!


September 15:  Brenna "waking" Liam up from his nap.  She loves to go into his room, slam open the door, and say, "Boo!" when she gets to his bed.  Very subtle.


Brenna helped me make dinner.


I made her a carrier for her penguin, out of a cloth tool belt, of course.


Jumping around Brenna's bed at bedtime.


Dadda is so funny.  And, of course, Ravioli is keeping guard.


September 16:  Playing around on the deck.


I think turquoise is his color.


Post nap hair.  And our sporty girl.



Brenna is really good at putting together these little puzzles.


She wanted to line up all the ones she did, too.


Liam has been asking a lot of questions about how bodies work.  And lots of other questions.  So, I got him a couple new Magic Schoolbus books.


September 17:  Playing trucks in the backyard pebble pit.


That pacifier is becoming a problem.  It is becoming like a security blanket for her, after many months of only using it to sleep.  Good thing she's cute.


The ever watchful Ravioli.


September 18:  Reading after naptime.  Liam is actually really interested in sounding out words, so we're helping him with the beginnings of learning words.


It was a day where we had to rely on Carnation Instant Breakfast to get a little food in their bellies.


Tickles with Dadda.


Fun in the bubble bath.


Building blocks and bubbles.



Some nights they never want the bath time to end.


September 19:  Liam wanted skis.  So, I took apart a cardboard box and made two sets of skis.


We decided it was easier to ski with shoes on.  But pants were optional.


September 20:  We spent the morning at the market.  And got balloon animals!


Liam really enjoyed his pizza.  And raspberries.  And chocolate croissant.  It's an eating adventure at the farmer's market.
