Summer Fun

When you live in Arizona in the summer you are very limited on what you can do. You can pretty much stay indoors or you can go in the pool. All other activities will likely wind up in you melting like you are on the face of the sun. It is particularly challenging with a little baby because even if you feel you could possibly brave the heat and hit a few stores, the constant in and out of the car and going from store to store is SO hot for poor little Bella so we generally only one run errand if I am going with her or we stay inside for a while (the mall is good for this, much to Rowdy's dismay). So we do a lot of playing at our house or sometimes we go up to my parent's to use the pool. We have only done this once or twice so far with Bella but now that the water is nice and warm she seems to love it! If we go late in the day the pool is shaded so that is extra nice for sweet little Bella's delicate skin. Here are some pictures of some summer fun so far.
She loves playing with her little "steering wheel" toy, it has buttons that play songs and change the lights fro, yellow to red to green and if you spin the steering wheel it plays the abc song (that is her favorite)

I put this in because it makes me laugh. It looks like she is saying, "hey mom, put that camera down and come play with this thing, it's so cool!"

This is the strange little position she likes to work herself into when playing on the playmat. I put her on her back and this is generally how she ends up, she just won't turn all the way onto her belly, I can't understand how this could be comfortable!

Hey mom! Look at me go!

Oh no! Baby wedgie!

Loving the water! She loved being pulled around the pool while "swimming" She just wanted to swim around and kick her little feet! She kept doing these excited little squeals!

Laughing with Dad at all the fun you can have in the pool!

I had to put this in! Bella and her bestie were playing all day and loving each other. Then Bella was tired and was so cute they were holding hands and looking at each other. I could see we were teetering on the edge with Bella, Maya was smiling away at Bella and then Bella decided she wasn't having it anymore. Her little sad/cry face is so cute (that sounds terrible...I know) Poor little munchkin!

So we calmed her down and after she was happy we put her in her Bumbo, she loves her Bumbo!
