So...walking anywhere in the stroller and going to the beach with Connor are pretty much out. At 4 months he's still too young to go to other indoor activity places like the children's museum so instead our days have been spent inside at home playing on the play mat, in his jumparoo, singing, reading, playing with Red and taking quick trips to run errands just to get out of the house. After a few days, though, it's all gets kind of repetitive - even for Connor. Plus, how many quick trips can we make to Target? I drove all the way out there the other day just to pick up dishwashing detergent because we needed a change of scenery.
Getting creative is really the only option. Literally. A friend gave us a package of art canvases at our baby shower and I've been wanting to use them for months now. So, yesterday seemed like the perfect time. We used our hand prints - and in one case paw prints - and made a print for each of us, Mommy, Daddy, Connor and Red. Connor and Red's were a little difficult and smudged but I like that they are a little messy and random.
Ok, one project down, now we need another one for today....and tomorrow. An artic blast would be welcome, too.
