Baby Girl Time

I've been spending so much time lately on my jewelry business that poor Marie has gotten a little neglected. Yesterday I decided to drop everything and have some baby girl time. She never complains for it, but it melts my heart to see how much she enjoys it!

First we worked on tossing a ball into a box. The other day my mom and Marie were playing with a bouncy ball... Marie kept putting it on the floor and kicking it. While I'm so proud of her soccer skills, I thought it was time she learned that balls can be used for other things too!

Just as we stepped outside, Daddy came home! So I got to take pics.

I love this one because Derek was trying to teach her to underhand toss the ball but she wasn't even getting close to the box. So she decided to throw it as hard as she could. Miss Independent.

Then she came up with her own game - throw the ball down the sidewalk then bear crawl to get it...
I have no idea how her little mind comes up with these things.

Of course I had to get a pic of Jack...

Later, Marie got her grocery cart out and began using it the only way she ever has - to chase down the dogs. Time to teach her what it's really for. I lined up some chairs in the kitchen and put all her "groceries" on them. She walked down the "aisle" and put her "groceries" in her cart...
Yes, this is what we did instead of mommy doing dishes.

Then we headed off to pay the cashier...

Who, of course, was Daddy...

"Uh oh!" All out of money.

She tried to take the money right out of Daddy's pocket, but he made her clean up her toys to earn it back. She was such a good girl!

I love Baby Girl time. Looking forward to more of it today!
