A Swinging Good Time

This weekend was the first really nice weekend we've had here in Philly. No snow, no ice, no threat of 'weather', just two lovely fifty-degree or so days in a row.

Sharon and I decided that it was time to flip Hallie's excellent stroller from its pram position to its stroller position and take Hallie out to the park down the block and for a nice spin around the neighborhood.

Of course, this involved bathing our lovely girl, who got to experience the tub without the infant sling for the first time. She enjoyed it immensely and was not nearly as prone to slipping down into the soapy water as she had been with the sling. Hallie had a great time splashing away with us.

Then we got her dressed up in one of her (okay...our) favorite little kid outfits and had her model the lovely strawberry hat knitted for her by cousin Jennifer:

Then we bundled her all up and headed down to the park. At first, Hallie wasn't sure what to make of the new apparatus in which we placed her:

But it didn't take her long to get into some fast and high swinging:

Of course, all of this activity tuckered her out and she couldn't keep herself from yawning:

And, in spite of the fact that our little girl hates, hates, hates to sleep, in a matter of fifteen minutes or so, she was out like a light:

But this didn't keep her from returning to the park today for some more excellent swinging adventures:

After all, not only was today the first-year birthday party of Hallie's best friend Karina, but also Hallie's actual nine month (actual) birthday. And we can assure you that Hallie Rose had a swinging good time!

Soooo cute! I wanted to take the twins out so badly this weekend, but it was a little too chilly and they are still a bit too young yet, especially with them both on O2 and all. Hallie looks adorable (as usual) and she looks like such a big girl swinging away! Glad you all had fun!
