Today was the first sunny, warm day in ages, so Bryn and I decided to celebrate by setting up a blanket outside and playing. This was a mildy successful endeavor. Bryn loved being outside, which is new and exciting, since she's usually pretty dubious about the outdoors. Maybe an appreication of nature has come with her other newfound maturity, including her now 4 teeth and speed-crawling skills. This afternoon she stayed on the blanket for long enough to reach over the edge and collect a few handfuls of leaves and grass, and then she was off to explore--although not too far beyond the edge of the blanket! It was really cute--she kept crawling off into the grass, playing for a minute or two, and then doing a hasty retreat back onto the very edge of the blanket before venturing into the wild again. Below are some of my favorite pictures of the whole experiment.
