Here she displays her cat-like ability to squat in very small, confined places without hollering "Oh! My knees!!!" Amazing.
She's a big climber. Did I mention that? It's true. Not content with being safely grounded. Nope. Determined to get a concussion before the age of two, that one. I had to put that sweet dollhouse away for a later date because she kept trying to get inside and then would get madder than a hornet when she'd get stuck. It was kind of funny, actually. Anyhoo...
These were taken on our staycation day at Powell Gardens. It was gorgeous! Here Hubby Nugget and Babygirl are posing by the water garden.
Taking a break in the shade with Hubby Nugget, Monkey , G.G., Papa, Mamaw and Dapaw! That was a beautiful arbor covered in Chinese wisteria, situated next to a lake full of giant snails and snakes. Some of us were more stressed about that fact than others.
So of course we let the Little Nugget out of her stroller to run around the dock!
Once the Genie was out of the bottle, there was no getting her contained. Note the "No Entrance Beyond This Point" sign. Yes, our child is a heathen. Sigh. We prefer to think of her as "spirited". We will be putting her in tumbling classes soon. Mark my words. We have to do something to channel all that "energy".
I finally got my lame ass to get that pool out for her (on Labor Day weekend, I know, at least I got it out!). She was a little unsure about it at first.
So she disguised herself as a starfish and snuck up on it. Very stealthy. Note the limestone boulders at the upper left corner. They are falling out of our trailer, broken earlier that day by said boulders. But we made it home with our rocks!!! Good times!
Once Daddy started splashing her, the Monkey thought the pool was awesome!
The water was a little chilly, but she didn't mind too much.
The Bug appreciated the convenience of having a water fountain in the middle of the yard. Said Hubby Nugget: "This goes against every environmental bone in my body." Yep.
After a couple of minutes, the Little Nugget decided that rocks were missing from this playtime scenario. She went to fetch some from the site of the future Nuggetworld yard feature.
The girl likes her rocks!
Her love of rocks is seconded only by her love of flowers. She attempted to "pick" some for the festivities.
In a picking mood, she continued on to the tomato patch where she procured some "appos" for our dinner. Note: all tomatoes are apples in her eyes, and she will tell you about it if you try to convince her otherwise.
I missed out on an awesome photo op of the Babygirl snuggling with a tomato later that evening, so when she snuggled with a pickle a few days later, I couldn't pass that up. She literally asked for a pickle, then climbed up on my lap to snuggle before bedtime. She took that pickle to bed, too. It was promptly retrieved once she was out. I really have nothing to say about that. Other than it strikes me as odd. Pretty funny, though. What a sweet Babygirl!!!
All for now,
