Good Morning, Maine Winter....

Thanks, mama.

 If sweet girl could talk, she'd say "Thank you, mama" for all these thrifted finds.

 What did I get? All of this:
 (Three pairs of warm socks, knitted baby slippers, these stacking wooden bowls).
Plus this: 
(It's a hand embroidered 4 ft. duck for big brother's room).

All for $9.00

And a closer look at those darling slippers. 

 And a closer look at an upside down sweet girl.
 She has claimed these wooden bowls.
  I thought they'd be a play kitchen type toy, but she has other ideas.
 Well, they're most exciting until a certain dog becomes more entertaining.
 I guess it's good to take a break from important work when your best pal comes over to play.
All in all, I'm sure she's saying "Thanks, mama".

Winter Wildlife Expo

Learning about wildlife in the winter?  Sign us up.  Laudholm Farm. Historical farm set aside for preservation, trails galore going right to the beach. Love that place. Big puffy heart love that place.

 Started with an animal presentation.
Gasping in surprise...a real live turtle. You think he was interested?
 And then a snake.

He's not even 2 1/2 yet, but I swear he listened to every word.
 He spent ages picking out his favorite species.
 Baby girl?  She was just chill, along for the ride, as usual.
 I helped him make binoculars.

 We learned about animal tracks.  He said "BOG know much bout animals?"  Incidentally, yes.  The BOG is a veterinarian.  You could learn about tracks and then borrow a pair of the oodles of snowshoes they had available there to find the tracks for yourself on the trails.
 Lots to see with those binoculars. You see, the view is completely different with them.

 He got his face painted with moose tracks, per his request.

 Some puddle stomping and outdoor play made it a day.

 Someday baby girl will be bouncing around too.  Until then, I'll keep her strapped to mama's chest...right where I like her best.
 Love tiring a kid out from being outside.

And I love spending time with my top notch family. A wonderful day, indeed.

Spotlight on my Dad-Baby Rattle

How about a baby rattle for our sweet girl.  Made by the BOG, of course. 

It joins these other homemade toys from the BOG:
bunny pull toy

She was excited to receive it.
And it's become a favorite.
She has to watch carefully, though.
In an instant, it could be GONE.
Oh, that big brother.  He has so many rules.
