April, as is usual, has been a combination of brilliantly sunny days (see above) and rain. The girls have started to play in the backyard a little more but we’ve also had our share of indoor days, struggling through until dinner time.
With Pearl’s recent birthday and Rose hitting the 18-month milestone in March, April quickly filled up with check-ups and appointments. Both girls visited the doctor, the dentist, and the eye doctor. I was so proud of each of them and so thankful that they are both healthy.
Pearl is also doing swimming lessons again this spring and it’s amazing to witness her growth and independence since her session last summer. Poor Rose tries to take off her clothes as soon as we get to the pool – she wants to join in so bad!
Rose’s language is growing every day. She’s not quite putting words together but she seems to understand just about everything and has no problem making her desires known. My favourite is when she repeats “happy, happy, happy” when she’s enjoying something.
One of Pearl’s favourite activities right now is to take pictures with my phone. She’s particularly a fan of filters. I’ll be honest, not every picture is a photographic masterpiece. She did an extended series on ceiling light fixtures that was, frankly, boring. But I do love the glimpse it gives into how she sees the world and her little sister is a frequent subject. So please enjoy some of my favourite Photos by Pearl:
