an afternoon in the life of Bea...


For those near and far, interested or not I thought it might be cute to give you some insight on a typical afternoon/ after mommy & daddy get home from work/ life of Bea...

Baby Bea, or should I say, toddler - 13 days shy of 17 months Bea, is one busy burdie.

After mommy has picked Bea up from "school" and fed both her and Ellie some nutritious crunchies, Daddy gets home! Its then a rush to get out of work clothes and into something comfy to enjoy the last few hours of the day with our little family. We get Ellie leashed and take Bea (snuggled up with her Giraffe baby, of course) outside and into her jogging stoller.  Babbling the entire way - Bea says "hiiii" to every doggie we pass, pointing and making sure daddy & I both notice every airplane and the moon when in view. We, as a little family, love our late afternoon walks. We stroll by lots of squirels, bunnies and through some great nearby neighborhoods. This is where we plan out how we will achieve all our future dreams - future owned home (or not)... more doggies... and of course sibling (s?) for Bea.
Birdie's Big-Girl Shoes [Book]

When we are all walked out we come back home to our happy rented 1st floor 2 bed 2 bath apartment, which we love. Our home going on 4 years now, is on top of a little hill in the sweetest little town in Northern VA, we are proud to start our little family here.
After we have folded up the stroller and made sure Ellie is hydrated, we get Bea all naked and ready for a bath. She LOVES the bath! This is mommy and Bea time, I have and will continue (until there is no room of course) to take a bath with Bea. We play with all her little bath animals and point at all the fishies & sea stars that I have stuck to the tiles. We read book after book after book. Bea's current favorite is "Birdies Big Girls Shoes" (as seen on right)
When Bea is all cleaned, teeth brushed, and prunie then daddy comes in and takes Bea to her room to get ready for "night night land". We are such blessed parents in every way possible of course but one being that it only takes a little while for Bea to drift off to sleep where she remains for up to 11 hours!!!
Then around 6:45 - 7:15 Bea wakes us up with her sweet babbling and we start our day again....

Bea enjoyed an awesome adventure with her Auntie Riah on the Tuesday after Memorial Day. We went to the Air & Space Museum!!! We strolled around looking at all the giant & tiny planes, gawked at the amazing inventions that people actually used to fly and of course with Bea's insistance - we sat in mostly every chair along the way!
