Labor Day Weekend

I forgot to do an update on our holiday weekend.

Saturday we met friends at a local Pow Wow. It wasn't quite what I was expecting, but it was still fun.

That afternoon we headed down to visit with R's side of the family. Unfortunately, Sweet Pea is in the throes of separation anxiety (sometimes she won't even let Daddy hold her if I'm around), and she wouldn't let anyone (even her grandparents!) hold her. Mamaw was pretty bummed, but she was a good sport about it.

The family reunion was Sunday. It went really well, and we were able to visit a bit with extended family we don't see often. There were three other girls born within two months of Sweet Pea (so they are all 10-12 months now), and we of course tried to corral them into a single picture.

Sweet Pea had a great time getting down on the ground and getting dirty! She seems to have a penchant for chewing on sticks. My favorite comment of the day was from a cousin-in-law, who asked if this was our first baby, or our third! :)

We had a small birthday celebration at the tail end of the reunion, and R's sister and parents were so generous! Sweet Pea scored a couple toys she can push around the room, as well as a couple dolls and a board book. She loves her new toys! She has spent most of the last few days pushing the walker back and forth, and even cuddling with (and smacking) the baby doll.

Monday, we took thorough advantage of the day off by hooking up Sweet Pea's new bike trailer (a gift from my parents) and taking a short ride to a local park for a picnic lunch. The weather was PERFECT, and we enjoyed our relaxing family time.

And today, Sweet Pea has made me proud by practicing walking! She has gotten up to NINE in a row before plopping down, and what's more, she keeps getting back up and trying again! What a big girl! Will she be walking by her birthday? Hmmm..
