Happy Mother's Day!

What a special day if you're a mom or not! We had a fabulous breakfast this morning for Mother's Day! Ms. Anne and Ms. Shayla made sausage, bacon, fresh cut fruit, scrambled eggs, gravy, and also biscuits from Loveless Cafe. Wow, it was delicious! Congratulations to Mona (Ariana's mom) she won the Loveless basket full of goodies to cook! Congratulations to Heather Honeycutt (Hailey and Ainsley's mom) she won the coffee cup, spatula, and dish towel. Mother's Day is a special time of year when we get to celebrate the wonderful women in our lives. Have a Happy Mother's Day!

April showers bring... picnics?! The rain held off so we could have our family picnic! We had so much fun enjoying classic picnic food while taking in all the sights and sounds of nature! We loved having our parents join us for this springtime treat!

Baby Development Outside!

Think about how calming it is for you when you take time to go outside and smell the fresh air, bask in the sunshine and listen to the birds singing.  It is the same for your baby but even better.  Your little one has probably never seen, heard or experienced bird songs, the smell of lilacs, the bursting bubbles, or the texture of a cottonwood pod.  By exposing him to these new experiences, you help him build neural pathways as he processes what is going on around him. A side benefit of taking your baby outside is that she will begin to associate being outdoors with happy fun times and will want to be outside more and more.  Outside.  Away from the tv and video and electronic gaming systems. We make sure our babies here at AoHV have a full hour everyday outside for this time to play, experiment, have fun, and enjoy the weather!!
