Spring Time

Well the new year has arrived, and the cold winter weather is already leaving, or at least, it is on hiatus. It was back to shorts and t-shirt weather. It was so warm that Heather let Sara Beth play with some of the neighborhood girls splashing in the puddles.

The other girls are 6 and 7 years old, but Sara Beth tries her hardest to keep up with them, and actually does a pretty good job of it. The other girls will slow down so that Sara Beth can catch up as well. If the kids are playing in the middle of the road and a car turns onto the street, Sara Beth will call out to them from the sidewalk, "Watch Out! Car!"

After Christmas, it can be a chore to make sure all the sweets get eaten before they go bad. Fortunately, we have Sara Beth to help. I gave her a cherry cordial as desert one night. She picked it up and popped the whole thing into her mouth, and then she tried to figure out a good way to bite down on it without having to take it back out of her mouth. I had enough time to grab the camera to take a picture before she figured out her plan of attack.

Sara Beth got all sorts of sticker packs for Christmas. On Sunday, she decided she wanted to put all the snowman stickers onto her cloths. They actually stuck on pretty well didn't come off until I ripped them off at bed time.
