Playing and Playing and Pants!

We have been having a good time around the Beckstead home...well mostly Mary. We have fun too, but there isn't much of our fun to tell. Mary's more fun to write about.

She has learned that she really likes playing in her room. She creates some awesome messes in there (we just shut the door and pretend it's clean). I thought it would be fun to get a picture of her in front of her amazing crib. She even smiled for the camera.

 Mary loves to play Peak-a-Boo. But she doesn't really know what "Peak-a-boo" means. We always say "Where's Mary?" and that's when she plays with us. It's really funny to see her try and cover her face with her tiny little hands. In case you were wondering I was about to change her, that's why her clothes are half off. But then she started playing and so I grabbed the camera instead!

Mary has learned that it's fun playing with Dad's toys - that he doesn't put away. This is his yoke for the flight simulator. She loves pushing the buttons. I don't know how much Jake loves it, but Mary does!

In this picture Mary has combined two of her chairs and sunglasses. She loves learning how to get on chairs and then just lounging there. This is the rocking chair in her room. She carry books and toys over to it, climb up, throw the items off and do it again. She's so silly!

Mary LOVES the park - if you couldn't tell from other posts. And has learned to LOVE slides! I thought this was so sweet of Jake and Mary. 

Here she is taking care of the rocks so the toys stay clean. She thought it was really fun to let the rocks fall down the holes. 
So, the other day I took Mary to the park and took her to the swings. She shook her head and pretty much ran away! She wanted NOTHING to do with them. So we played on the slides and other toys for a while. Then she say the big kid swings and wondered over to them. At about that time a kid came over and started to swing, oh was she mesmerized! She just watched and watched and then begged me to put her on a big kid swing, so I did. After about 5 minutes of that I took her back to the baby swings and put her in it. And for, literally, the next 20 minutes I couldn't get her out of them. She LOVED them!!! As you can tell by her smile. After that she would go play somewhere for about 3 minutes and then go back to the swing. It was so funny! She loves them!!!

She's so darn cute! I'm not sure where she came from!!!

We went over to my sister's house for swimming and a bbq. It was lots of fun! Mary didn't like swimming so much...ok, at ALL!!! But she did have fun on the trampoline and playing with her cousins. She and Isaac had fun eating together. I love Isaac's face. 

She doesn't like swimming, but she loves the goggles. She's such a goof!

I really wish this one was in focus :(

Oh my mess maker! I'm already dreading the terrible twos!!! Yesterday she kept getting into EVERYTHING! It was driving me nuts! I turned to Jake and said "I can't imagine her terrible twos!" and Jake said "Well maybe she'll grow out of it by then." Yeah, I just laughed, as I'm sure you just did.

Mary has discovered a new toy! We've had this sit-n-spin for quite a few months now. It just sits there never played with. Well the other day Mary found it, hauled it out in the middle of the floor and asked for help (she signs help). So I put her on it, turned it and couldn't get her off it. I took pity on her and put batteries in it so it plays music now. She LOVES it! This picture was taken right after she woke up. She didn't want breakfast, she wanted to play with it. It only took her one night to figure out how to turn herself all the way around it. She's so stinkin smart!!!

Mary has a new habit (as if nail biting wasn't bad enough). She has started sticking her right hand down her pants and then she'll just walk around like that. I don't think she's trying to take off her pants or anything, she just likes it. She's such a goof!!!

Thought I'd end with her new way to wear sunglasses. I think this style will catch on pretty quick!

We hope you all have a wonderful week!!!
