picnic in the yard…

so when jon works out in the yard, he likes to talk me into coming out there with jasper to hang out…we lay a big blanket out close to where ever jon is working and she plays with sticks and grass while jon and i chit chat…i go in when jasper gets bored and tries to crawl her way to china or the mosquitoes attempt to eat us alive – whichever comes first…so this sunday, we are out on our blanket while jon trims trees and weeds some of our flower beds and, well, jasper decides to join him…she crouches down like jon was and starts to very carefully pull leaves from the rain lilies…she was very diligent and only tried to eat a leaf ONCE!!  i actually took video of her doing this and chit chatting to herself the whole time but i think you would have to be one of her actual parents to think anything other than “why am i watching jasper play with leaves?” for several minutes!

and here is where she gets serious and joins her papa in a bit of weeding…until she gets distracted by another tasty leaf…

happy father’s day, jon!!

our father’s day went by so quickly!!  we had a lazy morning of sleeping late (and by late, i mean until 7 am), tickle fights and then going to a friends birthday party where cake was eating, dog slobber was rampant, a nap was skipped and the baby was passed around like a party favor…which she enjoyed thoroughly!!  she is so friendly with other people – she likes to keep me in sight but other than that, she is very engaged…it is fascinating to watch her interact with people other than jon and i…another baby (a boy) about her age was there and jasper was very focused on him at first…wanting to touch him and talking to him and waving at him…although when he continued to try and take her sippy cup (to be fair, his was the exact same cup jasper had), she became less pleased and saw the need for some distance 🙂 but it was very interesting to see how curious she was about him…

all in all, a good day…happy papa day, love!!

here are some father and daughter shots:

it wasn’t too long ago that jasper’s feet couldn’t touch the ground when she sat on the little ledge…and now look, sitting and swinging her feet ever so nonchalantly!

one saturday…

here is jasper waving hi…when it is raining, she likes to sit at the door and stare outside…

and here is what happens when jasper decides to redecorate…she was in the computer room with me and then she booked it out to jon – or so i thought – turned out, she took a turn in the bedroom first and THEN went out to her papa…

which reminds me – the last time she and i went to the library, i parked her stroller by some paperback books while i perused the shelves and i turned around at a noise and she had pulled about 4 or 5 books out of the carousel and had them strewn all around her!!  she looked quite happy with herself – cheeky monkey 🙂

before bath and after bath…

we always let jasper lilith run around naked for a while before her bath – she can really move once you take that diaper off and (cross your fingers) but we have yet to have an accident 🙂
and i can’t begin to tell you how cute she is when she is roaming around in the nude…

and this is jasper after her bath…dressed and patiently waiting for her mama to hurry up and put her to bed…tired little one resting on the tile…

cheerios…

here is a picture of the little one stuffing her face with her beloved cheerios…and she is still as cute as a button!!

walking…well, with a walker…

say that sentence five times as fast as you can! 

so here is the push toy that jon was talking about in the comments below – she was getting frustrated at being stuck on the carpet so i duct taped the outer surface of the wheels to give the toy a bit of traction on the tile – now she has the whole house to explore with the push toy her nana got her!  ah, duct tape – you gotta love that stuff!
