Exploring the garden

This blog entry was intended for yesterday, however had other ideas and wouldn't let me add photos.  Therefore there will be two entries today.  The second will be posted a little later tonight.

The recent good weather made me realise how much there was to be done in our garden to get it Bean friendly.  Luckily we have had help with my mother in law mowing the grass and my dad helping get the weeds out of the patio.  The veggie patch still needs to be sorted but o the whole the garden was safe for Bean to explore.

So today we explored the garden, the weather could have been warmer but Bean seemed to enjoy exploring her surroundings.

 We practiced take steps as well as exploring the grass.  We currently have clumps of dried grass from when it was cut which Bean enjoyed pulling apart and throwing.

 We played on the slide and practiced climbing up safely and coming down the slide.  This is a new addition to our garden and Bean has taken to it very quickly although does need to be encouraged to sit on her bottom when going down the slide rather than going head first!

We had lots of fun on the swing, exploring the overgrown weeds in the veggie patch and playing with the grass.  Bean found playing chase great fun, Bean would chase me and I would chase her.

During tea we practiced using a big girl cup.  The cup in the photo is a Doidy cup and allows the child to see the contents of the cup without tipping it too much and helps teach them to drink from the rim.  Overall we had less spillage from this cup that other cups without lids.
