Baby Time Link Up: Outdoors!

Harry loves going outside.  Even better, he loves going outside with his favorite people.  (Two great reasons he loved going for a walk on Sunday morning!) 

It wasn't too long ago that I could put him in his swing and he would be happy watching everyone else play in the backyard.  Now he still enjoys the swing, but only for a few minutes.  He also wants to get his play time in!  What does he do in the backyard?  Push bikes around the yard, follow Kaia, dig in the dirt (watch Mom pull the dirty digging tools out of his mouth), try to sneak leaves in his mouth when he thinks Mom isn't looking (and still act happy when Mom takes them away), push buttons on the "kitchen," play on the slide, climb around the "car," squish mud in his hands, and play with any other toys he might find (including the football, Frisbee, buckets, etc.).  He likes to both walk and crawl outside.  I think one of his secret goals is to squash any germ-phobic tendencies he can out of his mom!

He usually wants to stay outside when it is time to come in.  One of his saddest cries is when he thinks we are going outside, but we are really only walking past the door!  

What do your little ones like to do outside?  I'd love to read all about it!  This linky should be up all week...I'll check your blogs until next Wednesday!  On Thursday I'll post a new Baby Time: Food!

How to link up:
1-Make a post on your blog about your baby (or toddler..."baby" is relative!) and outdoors.

2-Fill out the linky form at the bottom of my post. "Name" can be anything you like, like the title of your post or blog or baby. "URL" should be the URL of your post. After you submit, your "Name" should show up hyperlinked to your "URL."

3-Throughout the week, you can stop by anyone else's blogs who linked up too. I'm hoping it will be a fun way to get to know each other and the kiddos better. I know it seems like Harry's personality is growing SO much each day!

4-Feel free to post the button on your post or, but no obligations!

This is a great time of year to be outdoors. We just got back from the park! He is a cutie!

Jill, You'd think they were candy! He is a really happy baby!

Thanks Esther, I agree...the weather is perfect!

We've been out a few more times this week for walks, but my post is from a few weeks ago. Cute meme idea :)

Saw your post on MBC. Following now.
