Toddler Friendly Yard

Well, Captain has left for his 2 week National Guard training. We knew it was coming up though, so we prepared accordingly. We put in a 5 foot fence so that Harvey could play in the back yard more. (More accurately, so Harvey wouldn't run into the street and force his mam to chase after him with a 3 week old in her hands) And of course as soon as the fence went up, Harvey wanted on the other side. To give him more things to do while we are outside, yesterday I went to our Walmart and picked up one of these.

Harvey's first words upon seeing the new swing set were, "Oh! What's that?"

He then had to wait nearly 10 whole minutes while Captain finished the last few bolts. It was pure agony for this 2 year old.

The neat thing about this swing set is one of the swings is meant to be stood upon. Harvey doesn't understand that yet, but he uses the foot holes to help maintain his balance while swinging. He is almost able to swing himself because of the way it is designed. Of course, he is too short to get on the swing without help, but I'll take what I can get.

In other news, Lia is awake more and more every day, usually right when I am trying to get something done, like now. It is very hard to accomplish anything with this face in your lap though, but we manage. Lia is unimpressed by the swing and the fence.
