Lily’s passport arrived today.
She can finally go visit her family who so anxiously awaits to meet her in Portugal in September. (now all we need are tickets)
Go Lily, Go!
And on that note, HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYONE! I will be meeting up with one of my best friends who I have not seen in more than 3 years.

It was so hot yesterday afternoon I didn’t know what to do with Lily.
She was tired of being in the house but I didn’t want to take her downstairs to the pool because at that time of the day, the sun is on that side and even the pool is hot.
I decided to put her little bath tub on the balcony and with a watering can, fill it with water.
She had sooooo much fun!
So what if we don’t have a yard with a kiddie pool?
We have a balcony and a tub. And that is a “Must”!

Auntie K and Lily are having quite the fun and loving relationship lately. (and I’m so happy because not only is auntie K one of my closest friends but she was also there minutes after Lily was born)
It was a little rocky for a while there (Lily would cry every time she would see auntie K) but, now that they know how silly each other really is and how much fun they can have with that, their relationship has blossomed! 🙂
An auntie K who comes over, brings snacks, invites us to lunch and most importantly…let’s Lily pick her nose? It’s a “Must”!

Oh my, she kills me right here with this face.
Getting this face blown up and put on the fridge?
It’s a “Must”!

In honor of ARTsy wednesday, I went searching for some more baby art books.
Being a big fan of the arts myself, it is important to me to introduce Lily to that world.
ART….it’s a “Must”!
I have the adult version of this and I love it

For most of you who know Lily, you know she is quite serious for the most part. However, when we are at home and it is just Will and I, she is a big goofball!!
Tough and serious exterior but a big goofball interior? It’s a “Must”!

Lazy sunday afternoons on the balcony so we can watch the birds fly by.
Will, Lily and I had a wonderful late afternoon on our balcony yesterday.
The sky was a beautiful blue, there was a slight breeze and there were many birds flying and chirping around.
Lily was very entertained. 🙂 (photos by WRE)

Well, today is the day. My friend and hairstylist Massimo is coming over and I am finally getting my hair cut.
Not sure if I’m ready to go as short as that great Nina Clemente hair style I posted a while back but, I’m ready for a bit of a change.
I just hope that Lily doesn’t miss my hair…. 🙁
Wish me luck.
change to come…

Lily is really starting to want to play more with shovels and rakes lately while at the beach.
The plastic ones are fun but these wooden rakes at
Made by Joel are a great!!
He calls them “
sand combs“. I think they are a “Must”!

Wanting to introduce Lily to art, I went onto Amazon.com to look for some ART books for babies.
To my surprise, there were lots!!
ART for babies? It’s a “Must”!
Here are a few that really got my attention.
