Yesterday, June, Robyn, and Ivory were gone. The younger two were sleeping and I was just chillin. (And by chillin, I mean I was hunkered down with my tissues cursing my allergies.)

Daisy woke up shortly thereafter and it was such a nice day outside, I thought I should put her in her swimsuit and turn the sprinkler on. I got her all dressed, but she was still only half awake. I plunked her down in front of the sprinkler and she stood there for ten minutes, not doing anything.

Eventually, she took a step or two forward and tested the water with her fingers.

Next came a foot.

It was so fun to watch her slowly explore. It is not often that I have time with just one of my children and I enjoy every minute I get. (Okay, most of the minutes, because I would be lying if I said I love the 4 am feedings.)

Daisy just gazed and watched, pointing out birds when she saw them.

She played in the house for a bit

and we ended with a popsicle. What a perfect moment.

I love one on one time...I love falling in love with their personalities each and every time. What a sweet girl.

Looking at these cute pictures of Daisy makes me realize that you really need to update her picture for the right-hand side of your blog. She is so much older now! I'm glad you have fun with your kids.

I am always amazed at how calm they act when they are by themselves. It is such a sweet moment to have one alone. Gorgeous pics too.

I love her little knobby pigtails. And I so hear you on the one-on-one time. Just today I gazed at my little Kennedy and wondered where the time had gone. "I love you," I told her, and she gave me this huge hug. I very nearly choked up.

That is a darling swimsuit. If it would stop raining up here we might be able to break out the sprinklers too. I know my girls would be jealous of these pictures.

Fun! I miss the days of running through the sprinklers. I think if I did that now, I'd just get funny looks from the neighbors. That Popsicle picture is adorable.
