makeshift scarves, aprons and superhero capes…

mom, here is the picture that i was talking about…

now this is on the minimal side!  usually, she adds a couple of pairs of tights and ace bandages to the mix!  all worn like scarves around her neck and shoulders while she runs around the house or just sits and plays…whatever she does, these items are de rigueur according to jasper lilith!  it is the oddest little sight…

on some days, she likes to add a pillowcase or blanket around her like a little cape as well…if i had a sewing machine, i think i would make her a proper cape but she is resourceful enough to be able to fashion one herself 🙂

yard day…

jon has spent most of today outside putting new mulch in our flower beds and raking leaves and it was such a gorgeous day that jasper and i soon joined him…we have a little girl sized wheelbarrow that she got to push around and fill right alongside her papa who was doing the same thing…the cute part (well, one of the cute parts) was that she kept taking stuff out of her wheelbarrow and going over to put it into the big wheelbarrow…she was “helping” out, i think 🙂

soon she moved on from dirt clods and old mulch to her rock pot by the door – she would go over to her rocks and pull one or two out, bring them over to her wheelbarrow and then go back for more rocks…then she would come back to her wheelbarrow and take a couple of rocks from there and go put them back in to her rock pot…i didn’t understand what she was doing but she was doing it very industriously!

here is a Dirt Clod that jasper found and pretty much insisted on carrying around with her…she has gotten much better about putting things in her mouth, thank goodness, although she will still try to sneak a taste of something every once in a while…
