this and that

I was backing up our photos and noticed lots that I haven't shared so I thought I would do a quick post letting you know some of the things we have been up to for the last few weeks.

Tatum tried out a merry-go-round for the first time. I think she thought it was pretty neat, hard to tell though.
Tatum steals my water bottle nearly every day. She seems to think water tastes better out of it. And her constant thieving could explain why it seems that one of us is always sick.
Tatum's new mobility paired with the falling temperatures has made the mall playground a new favorite place for us. She loves all the tunnels she can crawl through as well as the slides and just watching all the other kids. A couple of weeks ago we met a few friends there.

Here are Tatum and Oakley about to go down a slide.
(Side note-While I was in Target that day, Tatum dropped the headband she is wearing in this picture. I retraced my steps but couldn't find it. Even checked with customer service to see if anyone turned it in. Personally, I can't imagine finding a headband and just picking it up and keeping it. Who knows where it has been or what lice-infested head it could have been on?! Grrrr!)

We also went swimming at the indoor pool here in North Liberty. Three days a week they let you bring your kids swimming for only a dollar a kid! It was a lot of fun and I imagine we will be doing it several more times this winter.

Tatum and her friend Kalia.
We still manage to make it to the park just about every day.  We usually don't stay for long but it's because I'm freezing, not because Tatum complains. It's amazing how the temperature really doesn't seem to bother them one way or the other.
And when we aren't busy doing any of the above or countless other things, Tatum's favorite thing to do is play with my hair/attack me.  Sometimes it is funny, other times not so much. :)

Things have been pretty low key, but good. Tatum has officially mastered walking and always wants to go-go-go, so life around here is a little different these days that is for sure.

  1. So much fun! I love your face in the last picture, you look thrilled. Reminds me of the time Mom and I skyped you and Tatum wrestled you to the ground. Still makes me laugh thinking about it.
