So have any of you fallen in love with skype like I have? I used to find it to be such pain with our last computer because we were never set up with a camera on our laptop (it didn't have a camera in the laptop) so if someone called or wanted to skype it was this big production to track down our cheapo camera, mount it on the laptop and then try to get a half way decent picture. I avoided skype at all costs then but, now with our newer laptop and with the camera as a fixed feature I find skype to be so enjoyable and a huge blessing! Daisy and I call Daddy ever so often on his breaks so Daisy can see him on the screen and she LOVES it!! She gives him lots of kisses and acts extra silly. Now that my mom is gone we have also been skyping a lot and it is so much better than a phone call in the sense that it feels like she is right here still. I have even skyped some of my friends that live in other states or countries. The best part is that it is free...YEAH! Okay, enough of that.
I am still playing catch up from my pictures while my mom was here. We spent a few hours in downtown and Daisy got to sit on an antique horse ride and she loved walking everywhere. Forget the stroller...that doesn't last long at all anymore! If I could think of one word that describes Daisy to a tee these days it would be: INDEPENDENT She does not like to cuddle much or be confined. She likes to be constantly moving, exploring and talking. She is always go go going!!
I love these pictures of Daisy with her great Grandma Bailey. Daisy loves visiting her Greats and showing them all of her latest skills and talents. They are some of her biggest cheerleaders! They happen to live on a beautiful, private lake. The lake is never crowded and has such a great kiddie shallow area. I love hanging out at the water and so did Daisy! This was only her second time ever going in the water like this and the previous time was over a year ago. My gal is quite a water bug!
I'm telling yah...Daisy is such a happy kid. This is not to say she is a peace of cake as she has a really strong will and let's me know if she doesn't want to do something but other than that, she is always smiling, laughing and entertaining those around her. While me and Daisy played in the water my hubs took my mom and his Grandma out for a spin on his bass boat for a little while. Grandma hadn't been on a boat in years and she had a great time!
Daisy loves to help with any and every chore but, especially with the dishes, laundry and vacuuming. Love this pic of my mom and her having a conversation about the vacuum. Below: We ran into the Panda Express mascot bear while we were shopping for new shoes for Daisy at Payless. She handled the large stuffed bear surprisingly well...could be that she is fascinated with bears...I dunno but, I think this bear needed a shower...just sayin.
