Adventurer Daisy

The weather here has been beautiful and I have been struggling with keeping her inside, especially now that we've been given the green light to introduce her to the world. So today I put her in a FABULOUS short outfit (her first time in shorts), a pair of sandals (first time in sandals) and we headed to the park!

When we got there NO one was around, so it was perfect. I whipped out my handy dandy disinfectant wipes and scrubbed the baby swing down inside and out. In fact when we first arrived I thought the swing was grey, turns out it was a light blue, it was just really funky dirty.

As I was cleaning the swing other mommies and kiddos started to show up, but by now I was determined that she would get a chance to swing. Luckily these kiddos were older and wanted to climb on the jungle gym instead of swing, so I didn't have too much to worry about. Daisy of course couldn't get enough of them, she kept watching and looking at me like "look mama, big ones!"

After going through several wipes I figured the swing was as clean as it was going to get and I put Miss Doodle in. At first she wasn't too hip on it, but then I started to push her just a little. I held on to the swing because although it was little, she was littler. She smiled and started to dig it, which was definitely worth the 5 minutes I spent scrubbing the swing.

We were able to stay about 20 minutes before the other kids came too close for my comfort and of course even though she had sunblock on I worried about her fair skin. Overall it was a great first visit to the park.

When we got home she had a bottle and then we changed her out of the fabulous short outfit into her home/play clothes. She played with her sandals for a while and just now passed out on the couch for her afternoon nap.

What a special day with my special girl. Life is good. :)
