Happy Mothers Day

We are celebrating Mothers Day with a beautiful, lazy, sunny morning and plans for an afternoon adventure. While I’ve got the chance I thought I’d share some recent images of mama and bubba.

As new parents we have discovered that Verti loves to mimic and she loves to help. As such, we design experiences where she can do both. For example, one of the first things we noticed was Verti’s fascination with clothes pegs. So naturally we engaged her to help hang the nappies.

Next we observed she wanted to help cooking. Carrot cake, yum!

More recently she has been totally into shelling dry beans.

Just this week she has joined us at the table for the first time sitting in a booster chair instead of a high chair.

However, a bit on the annoying side, whenever we tried to play a board game she just wanted to push the pieces all over the place…until we gave her a playing board of her own.

All that said, we still believe in the importance of play, although a lot of play is just imitation. Like mother like daughter like dolly like dolly’s baby.

Everyone likes outdoor play, although some need more sun protection than others.
