Ninja Surfer

It's been a busy week, but it's been a good week. 
Have to make time for this girl to play outside. She still loves the swing, but really wants to play on the big toy & slide this week (which she can't do alone, so that means mom &/or dad have to play, too.) FYI, chubby baby thighs slide down easier while wearing leggings.  
Happy baby, squinting from the sunshine. 
Toes in the grass 💜
Playing with Kendra while Momma's hair color processes. 
Drew had a boss from Toronto in town one day and I made dinner for us that evening. That's sometimes hard to do when home alone with a baby, but we made it work thanks to the Moby wrap... and made time for plenty of selfies. 
So you can see how well this wrap thing works, even on a 20lb 13 month old. 
Front porch sitting. 
Sometimes a good, long, snuggly, Friday afternoon nap on Momma is the only answer. 
New baby doll from Grandma LaGayle & Ken. 
Beautiful night at the ballpark watching the Arkansas Naturals play. 
We tried a new church this morning and loved it. Drew & I loved the worship service and Eleanor LOVED her classroom. The classrooms for little ones are decided by development instead of age, so she was with other littles that are sitting, crawling, and pulling up, but not quite walking. There were 8 other kiddos in her class and three women caring for them. Eleanor went straight in without the slightest hesitation and had a blast. After worship we went to pick her up and she was standing up with a huge smile on her face. She saw us in the doorway and gave us a big wave and "HI"!! She was happy to be there and happy to see us again. One of the teachers said, "She talks so much!" Yes, yes, she has a lot to say. I don't think she has a shyness problem. Lol 
Did I mention how cute she is today? 
So this new church felt like a really good fit for all three of us and we are planning to give it another go next week. I've had a couple of special people give me some much needed encouragement in the past week and that means a lot. We are super excited for what God has ahead for us. 
Also, guess who is standing up on her own now? I mean... middle of the room, nothing to hold on to, watch me balance like a ninja surfer - standing up. 
She really loves her dogs. Poor Mac, he has no space that is all his own, but he loves her back.
