Who Wears Short Shorts?

Yesterday we spent the day at the pool and did a little Memorial Day shopping.  I have lots of little stories to type out about Rilo, but I am STILL feeling sick (it's been 2 weeks!) so I will have to write them down tomorrow.

Don't know what's up with the finger in her mouth on most of these...

iPhone Friday

Sorry, tornado watches on Wednesday meant no pictures were taken!  Here are some iPhone pics:

She's really into wearing my shoes these days...

Saw this desk at a thrift store and grabbed it.  It is a blessing and a curse.  She LOVES it and played with it ALL day yesterday, however she also discovered she can pull that little chair all over the house and climb up onto things she can't normally climb onto.

Squirrel + B/W

Maybe Rilo is some sort of animal whisperer.  Yesterday this squirrel came right up to the branch that is in front of our porch and had a conversation with Rilo for at least 5 minutes.  It just kept making noises at her forever.  She just stared with fascination.

And unrelated, but here are some black and whites of LoLo.

Rilo is pretty much in love with anything that has a buckle.  Car seats, strollers, grocery carts...if it has a buckle, she loves it.  Which is why she is obsessed with baby Hadlee's bouncer.  Every day when we go to play with Josie and Hadlee, Rilo spends much of her time with the bouncer.

She's also discovered she can climb into it.  It reminds me of this hilarious site, Too Big for Stroller.  Anyway, here she is.

As I was taking these photos, Josie saw the camera, stopped, posed and said "cheese". Ha, what a ham.

Video: Rilo Says "Rilo"

Last week, Rilo figured out how to say her own name.  We also taught her to say Rilo Jane, but I couldn't get it on camera.

You can get a better glimpse of Rilo's jeans.  Seriously, I must find some for myself!

The Lake

Across from our complex is a cute little lake.  It has a great walking trail that we decided to explore today.  I took a ton of pictures of her, but they were mostly film and I obviously won't have those back for a little bit.  I did manage to take a few digital as well.  I wish you could see her jeans.  They are so so cute.  In fact, I'm kind of jealous of them.  I want them for myself.

The Porch

I think you should expect many more pictures of Rilo on this porch this summer.  This apartment is sooo dark, except for Rilo's room and this porch.  Even the porch is still shaded by the trees.  And if you're wondering why half of these are not in focus, please note that to get her to pay attention I have to run around the porch (which is the size of a box), turn around, squat down, meter, focus and snap, all before she gets too close to me.  Hopefully I'll perfect this style of shooting this summer. :)

Rilo is blowing you kisses!

I think we were singing the Itsy Bitsy Spider here.

New Parks

We've been finding a few new parks around here.  This particular park has the craziest slides I've ever seen.  They're almost as tall as a 2 story house.  Don't go down them as an adult...your legs aren't made for them.

Anyway, Josie and Rilo like the little kid section.  I have come to find out that Rilo has no fear.  She will walk to the end of the jungle gym where there is a big drop off and just stand.  Or she'll try to reach out to grab the fire pole or something.  She just freely walks out onto the rope chain section at this park after I've just watched several older kids stand there and refuse to go on that part.  Basically, she has to be watched like a hawk at the park.  Haha.

This is the point where Rilo discovered the flock of geese, starting running after them and yelling "ducks".
