Lotus was feeling frisky while Forrest was either hiding or trying to push the lawn chair around. They both thought it was hilarious for maybe 30 seconds, which is about as long as anything lasts around here.

I haven't had as much to post on the blog lately because it's getting harder to take pictures of Forrest. He's either running around and climbing things so there isn't time to get my phone out, or the rest of the time he's doing this, and we don't really need more than one whiny shot.

We borrowed a good baby hiking backpack for our trip to New Hampshire, and this was us trying it out before we left. Forrest had fun in there, but no matter how well it might distribute the weight, it still feels like you're carrying around a 25+ pound sack of potatoes. So, going up hills was a bit of a workout. Especially for dad when we started handing Forrest some shiny rocks to keep him entertained.
Forrest has been exploring Lotus's crate recently. Most of the time he just drops things in through the bars, and opens and closes the door. But sometimes when he's feeling brave, he ventures inside. This time I decided to join him. Suffice it to say it was cozy in there! Lotus was a very polite hostess, making us feel quite welcome even though we may not have been her first choice of houseguests.

It's hard to see in the picture but here we are all swimming in the lake at Playfield. This was the most swimming Lotus has ever done though she certainly did not enjoy it. Since she can't tread water she had to be held once she got out to us but she refused to go back to shore where she would be so far from us. So we just had to stick together.
In addition to having become an expert walker, Forrest is now also an expert squatter. For a while he could walk but he couldn't stand up spontaneously so he had to crawl to the nearest hand hold and pull himself up. Once he figured out squatting though, he could conquer the world!
