Graham had a business trip this week I had completely forgotten about until the evening before he left. Since life at this point is pretty flexible for Cambell and I, we decided to just head to Plano on Wednesday afternoon. I am SO glad we went! Along with the insanely gorgeous weather, we shared some sweet moments as a family making the evening absolutely perfect. After our arrival and my Corner Bakery fix, we went to the playground at my old elementary school. Talk about nostalgia. We played on the swings and let Cambell walk all over the place. She is incredibly close to walking on her own. On her way to freedom, she walks beside me holding on to one hand.
Upon leaving the park, we went back to Lolli and Pop's to assemble Cambell's new push toy to keep at Lolli's house. Clearly, Cambell was a big help in the process.
Outside, we let Cambell push her toy back and forth in front of the house. The girl went FAST! A little ouchie can be seen on her knee from getting a little ahead of herself. She pushed through the pain like a champ and kept on going.
Last night was simply wonderful. Although I was missing my hubby, I loved getting to be with my family mid-week. Cambell was in the BEST mood. At dinner she entertained us with her coy looks. Pop would repeatedly raise his eyebrows at Cambell, only to invoke a slight head turn with cut eyes and a sheepish smile. It was hilarious. Cambell is a crowd pleaser already.
After a good nights sleep, a little breakfast, and some wiggles, Cambell and I hit the road this morning in time for her first nap. When we hit Hillsboro, Mommy got an urge for some cheap shopping. We did a little damage at the outlets and ate lunch at Black Eyed Pea together. There was something so sweet about eating out with Cambell by myself. Everyone stopped to talk to us and Cambell was introduced to banana pudding! Good day. It sure is nice to be reunited with Daddy!
I have been meaning to post about Cambell's musical abilities for a while now. Our MusikGarten classes are every Tuesday at Baylor. Sadly, Tuesday will be our last week of class for the Spring. I will do this program again in a heartbeat. Cambell loves all of the songs, but ESPECIALLY the instruments. While the title of the post is a little misleading, Cambell does seem to have a little rhythm for a one year old. Here are some pictures from class on Tuesday and a video at the bottom from the previous week.
