Must have of the day

Inspired by Lily’s successful visit to her pediatrician, today’s “Must have of the day” are lots of organic fruits and vegetables to continue on making yummy, organic and healthy food for Lily.

We get ours from Annie’s Organic Produce Buying Club.

Will picks up the organic and sometimes locally grown vegetables and fruits every monday. Everything is seasonal, so fresh and natural!

If you live in Miami, you should  really look into it.

Lily had another visit with Dr. Salinas (her pediatrician) today.

The office moved into a new building and it is sooo much nicer than the one before! Everything is light and bright with lots of new design.

Like always the visit starts with Lily getting weighed and measured.

As of today, Lily weighs 17lbs and 02oz and measures 27″!

While we waited for Dr. Salinas to come do a quick check up on Lily, we played with the fun new mirror and plastic blue dog in the new room.

Dr. Salinas checked over a healthy Lily 🙂 and let us know that there were only 3 shots left for her to have in this second round of shots. What to do?????

Lily has only giggled 3 times so far but when she does, it is the sweetest sound and she is the cutest thing! She even gets the hiccups from doing it. 🙂

The second  time she giggled, she and I were at an ATM machine. The buttons made such a loud and funny noise that she started giggling! I couldn’t believe it. I quickly grabbed the camera, set it on video and tried to mimic the sound of the buttons so she would do it again.

Giggles after giggles kept on coming.

So glad I got it on video so Will could see her. And now you as well!

Here is a giggling Lily wearing her Zutano hat and babyGap romper. Turn your volume up and enjoy some Lily giggles.

Busy Lily

Yesterday ended up being quite the busy day!

I decided at 9:20a.m. (Lily’s usual morning nap time) to grab Lily and take her over to the Miami Beach Library for story telling time.

There we met up with our friends Sara and Sam and sat in a circle amongst lots of other boys, girls and mommies.

We heard stories and sang songs like Itsy Bitsy Spider and Lily was SO good! She is so happy around other kids. We will definitely have to do it again.

After story time at the Library we came home and Lily had lunch on the balcony. It was such a lovely day!

At 1p.m. we were back out to meet uncle Michael for lunch on Lincoln Rd.. Even though Lily had just had lunch, she ate some yummy sweet potato off my plate.

It was definitely nap time once lunch was over. Lily was getting quite cranky from not having her morning nap. She fell asleep as soon as we got home.

After a much needed nap and some more yummy food, we went to the park where we met up with Claudia and Sofia (Lily’s bff).

The park is one of Lily’s favorite places nowadays and with a buddy like Sofia to play with, it’s even more fun.  She has gotten quite used to the whole routine and she just loves it. She has even cried a few times as we were getting ready to leave.  (Yes, already!)

It was a busy and fun tuesday!

Here is Lily yesterday at The Miami Beach Library on the mat and with our friend Sara. And later at the park with Sofia on the swings. Lily wears pants by babyGap that were a gift from avo Hayes and aunt Sarah and top by Old Navy.

This past sunday, the three of us had lunch out on our balcony. Once lunch was over, Will put Lily on his lap and started to “mush” her face.

We laughed so hard! It was such a cute little mush face that I had to get it on camera.

The result? MUSH FACE! A face we LOVE.

Even less hair than before

My hair continues to fall out at a rapid speed! I have almost no hair left. (I’m not being dramatic ;))

Some of it is growing back however, it just looks funny right now.

I never wear it down anymore. Not only because it has no life but also because hairs just fall off all day long if I don’t pull it back.

There is nothing worst than hair falling on Lily when I’m changing her diaper,  putting lotion on her or dressing her. It drives me crazy!

SO, I’m thinking about getting my hair cut off. YUP, ALL of it.

It’s been years, decades maybe since I have had very short hair but I think it’s time.

I’ve been needing a change. Feeling like I somehow outgrew the pre-pregnant Claudia, in the back of my mind I’ve been thinking about a self rebirth.

When I saw a picture of Nina Clemente in the new Vanity Fair, I thought “WOW”! That’s it. That is the woman I see. Sharp, sophisticated, artsy, edgy but yet still effortless and simple.

I don’t want to rush into anything so I have to think a bit more on this. Short hair is a big commitment. There are more frequent trips to the hair dresser in order to keep it short without looking sloppy and if I change my mind,  it will take a looooooong time to grow back with many bad hair styles in between (trust me I’ve been there before).

In the meanwhile here is a picture of Nina Clemente.  Doesn’t she look sharp? And me in the early 90’s with some  of my short hair dos. (where were my eyebrows!!????)
