Oh sweet Hensley! How can you almost be 2? You are not a baby anymore, you are such a big girl! Some of her favorite things to do are to paint, color, and draw with chalk. She loves playing outside, especially in her water table. She knows all her colors and loves picking out her diapers, spoon, plate, etc. by the color of them. She is learning to count and is currently saying "1, 2, 5, 6" and does this when she is counting things. We are working on that :) She is wearing some 2T still, but 3T fits her good. She has lost a lot of her baby chub and has slimmed down quite a bit. Her absolute favorite thing to eat is chocolate, but she also loves smoothies, cheese, eggs, and anything with a dip. She talks so well and in complete sentences it still amazes me. She is consistently saying "I lost....I can't find it" whenever she can't find or see something she wants and then says "Oh I find it" or another favorite is "Stop it Sissy". Her favorite things to watch is Peppa Pig and the nursery rhyme shows on YouTube. She is such a sweet little girl and always says "phorry" (sorry), "pease" (please), and "tank you" (thank you). She looks up to her sissy and her cousin Bella and looks forward to when all the cousins get together.
We had Bella and Jack over for a play date and we ate lunch outside. I thought it was funny that they sat in a circle and Hensley was outside the circle. Ha!
When we had cousin Mavy over to play we drew a huge train track and they all had fun driving the trains and trucks on the track.
For daddy's birthday we took the girls down to the Myriad gardens to watch the high flying disc dogs perform. Their flowers are so beautiful!
These sweet little souls have stolen my heart. My life is so full and complete with them.
We made daddy chocolate chip brownies for his birthday. He turned 35, but we had to improvise on the candles :) The girls got to hang out with Gramma and Papa while Aaron and I went out to dinner. We had a great time!
The other day they found this pig nose from the fair in Tae's room and they had a blast pretending they were both Peppa Pig :)
We have been loving our weekly trips to the zoo and our picnic lunches. It seems we see the animals do different things every time we go.
They opened up their water feature in the Children's zoo area and the girls love splashing around.
Hensley got to feed the giraffe! She fed him 2 lettuce leaves and then decided she wanted mommy to do it. I think she was scared of the long black tongue! Tae took this picture. She did not want to feed them!
We got to see the new baby gorilla! She was so cute and the momma was being so sweet.
There use to be this huge wooden fence around where the turtles and flamingos were and they recently took it down and replaced it with this short black fence. I love being able to see in there and get up close to the flamingos!
