Although Christina is a little young to be overly concerned about her online habits, I don't think it is anything to be relaxed about. As the internet becomes more common place it is a beast to contend with.

An example is the iPad Christina has begun using as a communication device. Christina has only started using it and has a long way to go, but the possibilities seem endless with the various accessibility features.

It is better to be prepared as Christina gets older. I would say the best precaution and to make the most enjoyable experience for Christina is to be sure to educate Christina about the world wide web.

Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day Weekend was filled with lots of outside play. We went for several walks, wagon rides, playing in the grass.

Christina's flowers were too big for the little starter box so she put them in a big pot with lots of room to grow. Christina's favorite part was digging in the dirt.

Christina did lots of swinging outside over the weekend. For something different I lowered the swing so Christina could reach the grass. It was fun to watch her stretch her toes to touch the grass as she went back and forth. At first she didn't know what to think, but it didn't take long for her to figure out she can make the swing turn and twist with her feet.

We also made cookies and they turned out delicious. Christina made sure to taste to be sure.

The princess did a great job holding her head up for wagon rides. We tried taking a bumpy ride over the lawn and Christina is a big fan of bumps and going down the little hills. Dylan offered his services to pull the wagon. He was sure to find all the puddles to pull Christina through.

On Memorial Day Spring came to visit with her family. Christina enjoyed more grilled food and was happy to show everyone her smile.

Catching Up

As the housework gets whittled away I managed to get caught up reading some emails. I found some good information and will post each item individually.

Last weekend was busy with Christina. We had the UCP Short Walk on Saturday morning. The weather had a little chill and was very damp. We did not run into any rain while we were outdoors.

The Doll and Pet Parade was Saturday afternoon. Christina had fun and it was nice to watch her wave to the onlookers.

Sunday was nice and sunny so most of the day was spent outside.

It won't be long and school will be out for Christina.

UCP Short Walk

Saturday was a busy day. Christina and I participated in the UCP Short Walk. Christina raised a little money for a good cause and of course she enjoyed the walk in the park despite the weather. Afterwards we enjoyed breakfast in the tent.

Christina and I would like to thank those who sponsored/donated to the cause. Thank you Grandma, Bob, Tom, Dan, JJ, Steve, Pam and the others. It is very appreciated.

After a break at home we headed to the Doll & Pet Parade. Christina was cute as ever and turned heads as we walked to get in line. Christina is turning into quite the social butterfly waving to the crowd as we went by.

Getting ready with Aushleana. In line

Hurry with the picture.

Sunday was a sunny day so more outside time. Christina enjoyed walking in the gait trainer and swinging.

Christina has been doing well staying well since she got sick. The sickness is still in the air. There was a letter from the health department stating of the round of chicken pox going around school.

Again Christina has enjoyed the sunny weather.

Way too warm

As I sit here sweating I am debating on whether or not I should turn on the air. It is only May. I seem to have missed spring.

To add to the confusing weather, there is a tornado watch until tomorrow.

Not good weather for car/truck batteries. Kept busy at work today.

Lots of sun

The past few days gave Christina lots of time to catch some sunshine. Christina loves playing outside and when the weather cooperates outside it is. Christina enjoyed the park and had a few good laughs as I tried to fit down the slide.

The gait trainer gave Christina a good workout also. I am always amazed how well she can go in her gait trainer. It is nice to have her choose to walk in the gait trainer.

Thursday was the last day of speech therapy for this round. Christina will start again soon for the summer session.

The swing has continued to be a favorite. I have made a few more adjustments and I think we have the swing perfected. We also tried a homemade kick board. Christina did not mind laying on it, but she did fuss when I wanted her to scoot along the floor. As typical Christina behavior she fussed and whined a little as she pushed and pulled herself around the floor. With a smile between cries, Christina made me very proud.

Christina has also continued to be talkative as ever. She loves talking on the phone. We take time each day to make at least one phone call.

Christina is such an outdoor lover that with the rain and wind today she was ecstatic to be outside. The brief time we were outdoors the wind picked up and blew rain on Christina's face, she squealed and squirmed trying to lick the rain drops.
