Up Close With Magic

Last summer mommy introduced me to the magic of bubbles. I was amazed by the strange orbs which seemed to float in the air as if guided by invisible strings. That was one of my favourite days with mommy and I have been eager to recreate that experience. It’s been a long wait.

All winter long I have been waiting for the bubble orbs to reappear but they did not. Mommy insists that magic bubble time is an outdoor activity. In the winter the only outdoor activities we’ve had involved the snow. Those were fun days too, but there were no magic bubbles.

As the days have been warming up, mommy and I have been spending a lot more time outside. We go on outings, to the park, and we even have days in the backyard where the magic bubbles were sighted last year. This year in our backyard I’ve seen lots of birds, a couple of squirrels, and a few bugs, but no bubbles.

A couple of months ago mommy, daddy, and I went out to the park and we sat on the grass. I noticed a few bubbles that day but it was a bit windy. The bubbles were swept away before I could get a good look at them, let alone catch any. It just wasn’t a good day for bubble watching.

I was starting to think that I would never get to play with those magic bubbles again. Maybe bubbles are usually too shy to play and that one time last summer was a once in a lifetime sort of encounter. I was almost ready to give up hope, and then last weekend it happened.

On weekends the park is very busy and it’s hard for a small person like me to play when there is so much going on. If the weather is nice on weekends, we either have a family outing to a new place, or we spend time playing in our backyard. Last weekend the weather was perfect. Not too hot and not too cold with only a slight breeze.

Mommy set out a blanket on the patio and brought out some of my toys. Usually when we go out in our yard I don’t just sit and play with my toys. I either play in my pool, we do an activity together, or we explore the yard to see what unusual things we can find. It was not a typical way to spend time in the backyard but it was nice to play in the fresh air and I could tell mommy was enjoying herself too.

For a while nothing strange happened. I sat on the blanket and played with my doll and my car for a while. Then I got up and brought all my blocks over to the chair where I organized them. Next I moved my blocks from the chair to the table. There are many blocks and I can only carry two at a time, so it took several trips to get all the blocks to their new location.

I think I was on my second trip when it happened. First mommy got up and tinkered with the new contraption that had been sitting in our living room for a couple of days. Then the contraption began to make a strange humming noise. I looked in that direction just in time to see small bubbles being blown out of the now humming contraption.

Are you seeing this?

Mommy went back to her chair and appeared unconcerned that the contraption continued to hum and spit out bubbles. It took no time at all for the entire patio area to be filled with small bubbles which swirled and danced around me. I was so surprised that I couldn’t even move. I just stood there frozen as I was, and watched the bubbles float by.

I turned on the spot to follow the trail of bubbles with my eyes. Some went up and over the fence disappearing from my view. Some swirled around or hovered almost motionless in the air around me. Some sank to the ground where they seemed to disappear upon contact with the ground. It was all very hypnotizing.

While I watched the bubbles I realized that although the ones that landed on the patio vanished immediately, the ones that landed on my blanket were more inclined to stick around for a bit. They settled on the fibres of the fabric and wobbled there for a while. Sometimes they vanished after a moment, but other times they appeared to be quite comfortable.

It took a little while but I managed to shake off the trance and I sprang into action. First, I ditched the two blocks that I was still holding. I would need my hands for this. Next, I rushed over to the blanket and threw myself down upon it. Then I crawled over to where several bubbles were wobbling there in the sun.

With no hesitation I reached out my hand and grabbed at a bubble. With the bubble firmly in my fist, I made myself comfortable on the blanket and prepared to examine my treasure. I opened my hand and was very disappointed to find it empty. Where did the bubble go?

Quickly I reached for another bubble but it vanished before I could get a good grip. A third bubble produced the same results. Next I lunged with both hands at a group of bubbles but they were gone as soon as I got there. My hands were starting to feel strangely slippery but I didn’t have time to give it much thought. There were bubbles to be captured all around me!

On my next attempt at a group of bubbles, something strange happened. One of the bubbles attached itself to the back of my finger. I was amazed. Not wanting to frighten it away, I slowly brought it up to my face to take a closer look.

The bubble was beautiful. Perfectly round and wobbly with just a thin membrane separating it from the air. The sun shimmered off its surface where brilliant rainbows danced. It weighed nothing at all and I aside from a slight dampness, I couldn’t really feel it at all.

I was ecstatic to have my first close encounter with a magic bubble. It was worth the wait. A few moments later the bubble disappearing off my finger leaving nothing more than a droplet on the back of my finger. If it wasn’t for that droplet, I wouldn’t even have been sure if the experience was real.

Fun in the Sun

This year the warm weather has been rather slow to assert itself. We’ve had unseasonably cool temperatures with grey skies and rain. The summer solstice is a week away but it has barely felt like summer at all. More like a slow spring after a long winter.

It has been such a cold summer that the heat wave which dropped down upon us late last week was a welcome surprise. We finally had several days of truly hot weather and nobody complained about it. Over the weekend it seemed that everyone was out enjoying the unbearable heat and humid air.

My family was no exception. We left the comfort of our air-conditioned home and set out in search of some fun in the sun. What we found were crowds of people. The park was too busy for me to play safely and there wasn’t even an empty bench in sight.

Much to my dismay, we retreated back to the safety of our house. I was looking forward to adventures! I was even perfectly willing to battle crowds if it meant having some fun. Sadly, mommy didn’t think it was safe for me to do so. Mommy thinks I’m too small to run around in a crowd.

I was feeling disappointed as mommy carried me upstairs to my room and got me ready for a diaper change. Then something strange happened. Mommy put a weird diaper on me. It didn’t feel like my usual diapers and it didn’t go on the same way either. Instead of being fastened at the front like every diaper I have ever worn, I had to put my feet into it like pants.

Next mommy brought out an outfit for me that I had never seen before. It was one piece like a bodysuit but the fabric felt strange and it had funny straps at the top. Unlike all my other bodysuits, this one didn’t go on over my head. I had to put my feet into it first and then mommy pulled it up, got my arms through the straps, and pulled the straps up onto my shoulders.

I was somewhat confused by this process but once I was in there, the outfit felt quite comfortable. Next mommy put me in the crib while she searched for something in my closet, and then my dresser. I’m not sure what was going on. I was too busy investigating the strange outfit I was wearing.

When mommy and I went back downstairs, I realized daddy was missing. Mommy didn’t even slow down. She simply carried me to the patio door and before I knew it we were outside on our deck. Mommy carried me down the stairs to the backyard and set me down on the patio.

Moments later daddy popped out from the shed carrying two patio chairs and the large umbrella with its stand. That’s when I noticed the blue circular thing behind me. I’ve been on the patio before and I am sure that wasn’t there before. Mommy called it a kiddie pool, but nobody explained where it came from.

I didn’t have much time to investigate. Mommy scooped me up and put me inside it! I was very surprised to find that it was full of water. Having suddenly found myself waist deep in water, I did the only sensible thing I could think of. I began frantically slapping my hands down on the surface of the water.

It’s like having a bath outside

Splashing is fun! After a good ten minutes of furious splashing, I began to calm down. Mommy brought out a few of my waterproof toys and deployed them around me. Daddy set up the umbrella above me and a chair on either side. The three of us spent a fair bit of time relaxing and playing in this configuration.

After a while I decided I wanted to get out of the pool and do some exploring around the yard. Mommy helped me out and dried me off with a towel. Shoes were put on my feet and I was set free. While I was busy running around mommy placed a blanket on the grass underneath our tree and she sat down on it.

Once I was done stretching my legs, I came over to see what mommy was up to. She was just sitting there. I got onto the blanket with mommy to keep her company. We played with leaves and pieces of grass for a while. It was very interesting. I had never really looked at grass that way before.

I started feeling a bit warm and I though I nice dip in the pool would refresh me. Mommy helped me get back in the water and it was indeed very refreshing. Daddy adjusted the umbrella to keep me in the shade and we spent a while longer on the patio together. It felt so good to be splashing around in the water on such a hot day.

When I got bored with the pool for a second time, we decided to pack things up and go back inside. I was starting to get a bit hungry and mommy promised me a snack, so I didn’t fuss about it. After my snack I had a great nap. It was such an amazing day.

The best part was that the following day was another hot and humid one and we did the same thing all over again. It was just as much fun as the first time. Maybe it was even more fun because I knew what to expect and I wasted no time jumping into my pool.

The three of us ended up spending a good portion of our weekend in our own backyard and every one of us felt great about that. It turns out, you don’t have to go very far for a good time. Sometimes the best place to go is just outside the door.

Hearts and Flowers

For the last couple of days I have been cooped up indoors. We have been experiencing daily torrential downpours of rain which have put our daily outings to the park on hold. I have grown to love our playtime at the park and I miss my outdoor play.

After many months of winter, being able to venture out into the warming rays of spring sunshine was initially a bit bewildering to me. After all, last year I was too little to do much and spent most of my outdoor time strapped into my stroller. I still ride in my stroller each time we go out, but when we get to where we’re going mommy lets me out.

This has opened up a world of possibilities for me. It has allowed me to explore, see things I have never seen before, play in brand new way, and even socialize with other kids a little. It’s really not surprising that I’m hooked on our outdoor adventures. It’s even less surprising that all this rain is making me miss the outside world.

On the last nice day before the rain came, mommy and I had a great time at the playground. It was a little cooler than the previous day and the playground was almost deserted. This rarely happens. Most of the time the place is crowded with kids, parents, strollers, and the occasional dog.

It’s difficult for me to play when there are so many people around because most of them are much bigger than I am. They are fast and busy with their games. Mommy keeps me close and insists that I hold her hand so that I don’t wander into their boisterous play. She worries that I’ll get trampled because I’m so small.

It’s hard to explore when mommy doesn’t give me much freedom so when the playground isn’t busy, we take full advantage. Mommy lets me loose and I run around all by myself! I can go wherever I want, touch anything that strikes my fancy, and make use of all the interesting playground equipment. It’s amazing!

The last time we went was the best. I was in an exploring mood and mommy thought it would be good to take some pictures with our cell phone. Although it was a bit cool, it was a bright day and there weren’t many people around to get in the way. It was a great day for park photography and we got some great shots.

Mommy and I have been starting to work on our Instagram presence. It’s been slow going as most of our photos are in the camera and not on our mobile devices. I hope mommy got some good shots to share. There was one that I know mommy was excited about. I hope people like it.

We posted that photo on Instagram as soon as we got home. Mommy said she hopes it will get us a lot of hearts. When people like an image on Instagram they have to press the heart icon. When mommy and I get a like we say we got a heart from someone. It’s a bit of an inside joke.

Peachy's Instagram feed

I’m on Instagram!

That day at the park I found something very pretty on the ground. It was yellow and fluffy and I couldn’t help but pick it up. I can’t believe such treasure was just sitting there on the floor. I just knew it was a very special find.

After giving it a good look and petting it’s fluff a little, I turned to mommy and offered it to her in an outstretched hand. Mommy always accepts my gifts graciously but she was particularly pleased with the pretty, yellow, fluffy thing. She called it a flower and thanked me profusely. I think I’ve heard that word before but I’m not sure when or where.

After posting our latest photo on Instagram, mommy put the flower between two pieces of paper and placed a heavy book on it. She said she would save it to put in the book that mommy is making for me. The book is all about me, my firsts, special moments, and fun memories. Mommy has been working on since before I was born.

When daddy came home mommy showed him the flower and she told him that she is saving it because it’s the first flower I ever gave her. Daddy said the flower’s name is dandelion and he said it might not count as a true flower. Mommy disagreed and carefully put the flower back under the heavy book. I suspect daddy is jealous of mommy’s flower. I’ll have to find him one of his own just as soon as this rain lets up.

Babies Have Feelings Too

I don’t have many friends. I’m good friends with mommy and daddy. I have a relationship of sorts with our two cats. I like to think that you, my readers, are my friends. I have a long list of acquaintances that come to visit me from time to time. That’s pretty much everyone I know.

None of my friends and acquaintances are playmates of my own age. I want to have friends to play with and I am very friendly. I generally like to meet new people and I enjoy socializing. Sometimes I’m overwhelmed by large, boisterous groups, but once I overcome my initial fears I’m a very social.

Mommy knows that I’m a social baby and that I often seek out the company of other babies. This is one of the reasons why we have been going to the part almost every day since the weather has improved. It’s a very busy place with a lot of activity and it is exactly the kind of thing that I find a bit intimidating. I enjoy going to the park and exploring, but I have been too shy to do much socializing.

The park is full of kids of various ages, although most are older than I am. They are fast and move around a lot which makes it impossible for me to get anyone’s attention. Occasionally I spot another baby but they seem just as bewildered and overwhelmed as I felt the first time I found myself in the midst of all that action. There hasn’t been any opportunity for me to introduce myself to any of the other babies.

Yesterday I was walking around the park looking for treasure as I often do, when I found myself next to a little girl who happened to be standing calmly next to her daddy. She was a bit older than me but she wasn’t running around with the other kids and she noticed that I was there. I decided to step out of my comfort zone and see if she would be my friend.

As she was already observing me, it wasn’t difficult to take the first step and make eye contact. Next I introduced myself and attempted to initiate a conversation. She didn’t seem to understand me but she did smile and speak to me with the kind of words that mommy and daddy use. I felt like it was going well and I was encouraged to continue.

Crawling baby girl

Will you be my friend?

I reached out my hand to the little girl and offered her the rock that I was holding. She did not react and I figured she didn’t see my gesture of friendship. I took a step towards her and held out my hand where it was clearly visible. She took a step back which I assumed meant that she didn’t understand. I would have to be more direct.

I took another step towards her and nudged her hand with the rock, indicating that she should take it. She let me deposit the rock into her palm and I beamed with pride. That’s when her daddy said something in a low tone. The little girl opened her hand, allowing my rock to fall discarded, landing on the ground with a small thud.

I was confused and dismayed. I looked at the rock laying on the ground and I wondered where I went wrong. I thought our interaction was going well. I had never been rejected this way before. I didn’t know what to do so I stood there staring at the rock that had been so carelessly thrown away.

Within moments mommy was leading me away from the little girl and her daddy. Mommy said that I was a very sweet peach and that I did nothing wrong. She told me that it wasn’t my fault and not to feel bad. Mommy claims that some people don’t appreciate rocks like we do and that some little girls are not allowed to touch them.

I don’t understand why anyone wouldn’t like a rock, but even if that’s the case surely there are more tactful ways to refuse a gift. I’m just learning how to make friends and trying to find my place in the playground. I fail to see why any daddy would encourage their daughter to hurt a younger girl’s feelings and shatter her confidence. It seems unnecessarily cruel.

I’m trying to not let the experience get me down but I would be lying if I said that I’ve managed to shake it off. Today at the park I didn’t have the confidence to approach anyone even though we spent more time there than ever before. I found a lot of treasure and I had a good time but I felt more comfortable avoiding the other kids.

Maybe I’ll feel better about it at the park tomorrow. Perhaps I’ll regain my self-esteem and make a friend. Or maybe I’m too little and just not ready for friends at the playground yet. I’m going to have to be patient and take this one day at a time.

Sticks and Stones

I am a treasure hunter and I’m really good at it too. All I need is the freedom to explore my surroundings and I’m sure to find something amazing. My collection of treasures has been growing steadily and I plan on continuing to build my stash.

My new-found hobby began with the arrival of the warmer weather. Now that it’s not as cold, mommy and I get out of the house almost every day. Since I’m a big girl now, I get released from the confines of my stroller whenever we arrive at a destination that mommy considers baby friendly. As soon as my feet touch the ground, I set off in search of treasure.

I didn’t always have this freedom. It all began at the park only a short while ago. While taking my first steps outside, I discovered that the ground is littered with all sorts of fascinating things. On my first outing, I was surprised to find some pretty rocks right at my feet. Sadly I was an inexperienced treasure hunter then. I didn’t take the time to secure my find and so I lost my beautiful rocks before I could get them home safely.

Baby bundled up and ready to to outside

I’m ready to hunt treasure

The second time around I was better prepared. That’s the day that I discovered the beauty of sticks. It didn’t take long before I had both hands full of treasure and there was plenty more just lying around. I knew I needed to free up some space in my hands and I began searching for a solution. The answer wasn’t far away.

Every time I get to explore the outdoors, mommy follows me like a shadow. Sometimes mommy insists that I hold her hand and I’m alright with that as long as I have a hand available. I figured that if mommy was going to insist on sticking to me like glue, she might as well make herself useful. I reached up my overstuffed fists towards her and deposited my treasure into her outstretched hands.

Now we have a system. I search for treasure, pick it up, and give it a look. Then I turn to mommy and pass her my finds. Mommy then proceeds to put the treasure safely into her coat pockets while I resume my search. When daddy comes home I get mommy to show him all of the neat stuff I found.

My pile of treasures has been accumulating on the table behind the couch. It’s beginning to look like an impressive collection. There are rocks of various shapes, sizes, and colours. Some are sparkly, others are smooth, and a few are rather plain. There are sticks of varied lengths and dimensions. Some are straight, others are oddly shaped, and some may not be sticks at all.

For now my treasure trove is limited to sticks and stones but I’m hoping to build on this. I know there are other forms of treasure to find. I have noticed some other interesting objects scattered around the park. They may not be as common as sticks and stones, but they are still rather plentiful. I just need to expand my search beyond my immediate surroundings.

The other day, I spotted an unusual object on the ground before me and began to stoop in its direction with my pincer aimed towards it. Mommy sprang into action with an unusual sense of urgency and snatched it up before me. She tossed it beyond the playground area where I am not allowed to go. Mommy called it a cigarette butt and said it wasn’t for babies. I haven’t been able to find another one like it yet.

The life of a treasure hunter is an exciting one. The world is covered in riches just waiting to be discovered. I’m going to rescue every bit of treasure out there and give it a home. I think we’re going to need a much bigger table to house my collection.

Becoming One of Them

Last summer I told you about my outings with mommy to the park down the street. That’s where the big kids play and I’ve always enjoyed watching them run around. I was always too little to join in. I was always in the stroller or on mommy’s lap, quietly observing and waiting to grow.

In the fall mommy said that I would be big enough this summer. We’ve had a bit of a cool spring but we have ventured to the park a few of times already. It’s still quite cool and as a result, the park hasn’t been as busy as it is during the summer months. It gets a lot more visitors once the water park is open.

Each time we’ve gone there have been only a couple of families sitting on a few benches. I don’t mind that it’s quiet. It makes it easier for me to keep track of things and we get a great bench every time. I have also noticed that when it’s not so busy is when the smaller kids tend to be there.

I can’t help but notice that even the smallest kids are still a bit bigger than me. They are not that much taller but they are stronger and much more stable on their feet. I can walk on my own now but I still go plunkers sometimes. These kids rarely fall down at all.

Most of them seem to be further along with their words too. I only know how to say a couple of words but these kids know how to make their needs and feelings known with words alone. I like watching them play but I have been hesitant to join in. It’s a bit intimidating.

Baby in a stroller enjoying the outdoors

Me at the park last summer

This week has been a particularly good week and we went out every day except for yesterday because it rained. I was disappointed by the rain because the day before was an extra good day at the park. Mommy took me out of the stroller and carried me around! I actually got to explore the play sets, swings, and slides!

Mommy let me touch stuff and look into things. I really enjoyed myself. At one point mommy set me down on the ground, but I got nervous and I quickly sat down. Mommy let me sit in one of the play sets and together we discovered the activities on the walls. There were letters, numbers, and shapes etched on one panel and a maze game on the other. They were fun to explore.

The last part was the best. Mommy brought me over to the slides and after letting me have a good look, mommy sat me down on it and I slid down. I would have been scared but mommy held me the entire time and I realized it was really fun. It made me giggle.

After a couple more trips down the slide, mommy said it was time to go. I wasn’t ready to leave. I wanted to do the slide some more. I cried when mommy stuffed me back into the stroller. A handful of Cheerios helped me calm down and we went home.

That’s why the rain yesterday was a big disappointment. I wanted to explore the park some more. Today I got my chance. After watching from the stroller for a while mommy let me sit on her lap. This was nice for a bit but I soon began to feel restless.

Mommy set me down on the ground and I stood there a while holding mommy’s hand. I took a cautious step but I didn’t want to go alone. Mommy came with me and she let me hold her hand while I walked around the play sets. There were some bigger kids playing there and I didn’t want to intrude so I stayed on the outside and watched.

Adorable baby girl

I felt a little shy.

Mommy stayed with me as I walked around exploring at my own pace. Then something caught my eye as it moved past me. I let go of mommy’s hand to chase it and I managed to successfully catch it. I suddenly realized I wasn’t holding mommy’s had anymore so I sat down in a hurry.

The object I captured was secure in my hand. I took a good look at it and after a thorough investigation I discovered that it was a dry leaf. I let the wind snatch it out of my hand and carry it away. Mommy gave me her hand again and I stood up for more exploring.

Mommy walked me over to the smaller play set where there were fewer people. I was just about to head for the slide when I spotted something sitting on the ground. I walked over to it and picked it up for further analysis. It turned out to be a rock.

I walked over to where the benches are and I sat down on the ground with my treasure. It was an extraordinary rock and I was fascinated by it. After a while mommy tried to put me back on my feet again but I was perfectly content sitting on the ground with my rock.

Shortly afterwards mommy picked me up and put me back in my stroller. I was very unhappy about that and I cried loudly. Mommy said it was time to go home and have a nap, but I wasn’t done having fun yet. Mommy told me we would come back another day and she offered me some Cheerios. That helped as I had worked up quite an appetite.

On the way home I realized that I had lost my rock somewhere. I think that in the thick of crying, I had forgotten it at the park. I hope we go back tomorrow so that I can go get my rock. Maybe I’ll even work up the courage to interact with one of the other kids. Perhaps they would like to see my rock.

Sunshine and Snowflakes

Last week the weather has been amazing! We have been experiencing some unseasonably warm days and even though there has been a lot of rain in the forecast, most of it appears to have passed us by. Instead of rain, we have been enjoying warm and sunny days.

It has been so warm that mommy and I have been spending some enjoyable time outdoors. We’re back to our routine of picking up the mail and going to the park. Mommy and I sort the mail together and then we watch the big kids play. Last year I was looking forward to being able to play with the big kids this year, but I’m not quite ready yet. Maybe another month or two.

Now that I’m a big girl, I’m enjoying big girl snacks and mommy has been packing my morning snack in my diaper bag and I’ve been enjoying it at the park. Somehow food tastes better in the fresh air. So far I have not felt the need to give mommy a hard time about eating on a single one of our on the go meals.

The warm weather has melted all the snow. It’s incredible how quickly the landscape can change. One day everything was covered in the white stuff and the next day it was all gone. It makes it hard to believe that just one week earlier I discovered my favourite winter activity.

Baby in a sled

Ready for takeoff

I waited all winter to try out the sled that I got for my birthday but fate kept getting in the way. First I had the flu, then mommy and daddy got sick in turn. Next it got unbearably cold and windy. Then mommy was sick again. We had one setback after another which made for a difficult winter.

Then the stars aligned and it was finally time to try out my brand new sled. Mommy bundled me up so much that I could barely move. I had my shirt and pants on with a hooded sweater. Over that I wore my snowsuit which really added to the bulk. Of course mommy wouldn’t let me leave the house without my mittens, hat, and winter boots.

Daddy brought my sled outside and I got placed in it. With all of the clothes I was wearing I found myself wedged in there rather snugly. This turned out to be a good thing because suddenly, the sled lunged forward and we were off.

Once I regained my composure, I realized that daddy was pulling on the red rope at the front of my sled and I was gliding along the snow. Mommy was just behind me to make sure I was safe at all times. We had a few close calls in the deeper snow, but no actual mishaps due to mommy’s watchful eye.

I was having a really great time which was apparent by my big smile. Sometimes daddy went fast and that made me giggle. I love to go fast. I think we were going even faster than that time at the park when the mosquitoes attacked us.

Baby going sledding in the winter

Faster daddy!

I was having such a good time that at first I didn’t notice it had started to snow. Big fluffy snowflakes were falling slowly all around me. When I became aware of them, I found them hypnotic. I got quiet and watched the winter scene. It was beautiful.

I was feeling so warm in my snowsuit, and it was so quiet and still with only the steady sound of my sled plowing through the fresh snow, that I didn’t even notice how tired I was. The next moment I felt something touching my face. When I opened my eyes I found myself leaned back in the sled with my head back and I was looking straight up at the sky.

I hadn’t even noticed that the snow was landing on my cheeks and nose, but mommy did and she was gently brushing it off my face. I was so sleepy that I couldn’t even keep my eyes open and I couldn’t sit up in the sled anymore. Daddy picked me up, sled and all, and carried me home.

Once we got home, mommy took of my snowsuit and outdoor accessories and she took me upstairs for my nap. I slept very well that day. The excitement of sledding and the fresh air did me some good. It was an exceptionally satisfying nap.
