One of the items that I registered for as a shower gift was a play mat/activity gym. I really loved this particular one, Skip Hop Treetop Friends Activity Gym, since it included birds and trees… it was kind of my theme for Julia’s nursery. It was one of the best things that I could have registered for. Julia just loves it! She has been using it since she was a few weeks old. She loves the birds, especially this particular one that includes noisy wings and a clear ball with small beads inside it.

Julia’s favorite birdie…

I used to, and still do, show it to her and tell her about the real birds that you can see and hear in nature. Since one of my favorite birds are the chickadees and their call is easy, I decided to tell her that it was a chickadee. She loves it every time I sing the call to her… chickadee-dee-dee, chickadee-dee-dee. So fun! She usually has the biggest smile on her face. :)

Hiking with Daddy.

The weather two weekends ago was really nice, so we decided to take Julia for a hike. We decided to hike in Mendon Ponds Park on the South Meadow Trail, which connects to the Quaker Pond Trail. Both of these trails are a favorite. They are great for running as well as cross country skiing. They are also great since you can make your hike/run/cross country ski trip as long or as short as you want it. Another great thing about them is that you can feed the chickadees. So that is what we did… we fed the chickadees. Julia was very intrigued by the birds. It was so fun to watch her expressions.

I cannot wait until she will be big and brave enough to hold her hand out to feed the chickadees. :)
