Wonderfully different Mays

Yesterday while we were at the beach enjoying a lovely sunday afternoon, I looked at Lily and couldn’t believe how big she is already and that she will be 6 months old in a few days.

I started thinking about May 2009. What were Will and I doing then?

We were pregnant then. We were just about 3 months along and loving every minute of it!

At this time in May 2009, we didn’t yet know that it was a Lily in the belly but we sure wished for one! Will and I would spend hours and hours daydreaming out loud about what this baby would be like.

We were set on Lily for a girl name but, we would spend hours coming up with boy names. It’s a good thing it ended up being a Lily since we came up with some scary boy names. lol

Then as I sat there on the sand, I started thinking about May 2008. What were we up to then?

In May 2008, it hadn’t even been a year since we had been together and we were in Barcelona on the way to Portugal so my family could meet Will.

A smile came over my face at how totally different the last 3 Mays have been in our lives but how wonderful also.

Can’t wait to see where we are next May! 🙂

Here we are in Barcelona in May 2008. And here in Miami in May 2009 and May 2010. Lily wears hat by Zutano.

Things we LOVE!

We finally got some family pictures printed and inside the Sassy Photo Album we got for Lily and we all LOVE it!!!

Inside the album we have pictures of family that Lily has met but hasn’t seen in a long time and of family that Lily has not yet met.

There is a picture of avo Carmo, avo Hayes, avo Joao, avo Ricardo, uncle Jud, aunt Sarah, tio Ricky, Anabela, cousin Adelaide, aunt Desiree and prima Ana!

We know there is lots more family on both sides but, there were only 8 slots. 😉

Love you all!!!

Here is Lily with her family album. Lily wears shirt and shorts by Old Navy.

Must have of the day

I am a huge fan of decorative pillows but have never seen anything like these.

I was looking through Inhabitots (like I often do) and found these Eco-friendly Family Pillows by Handmade by Studio K. They are the best!!

You choose the most similar characters to resemble your family from over 38 different options, select the pillow size and designate the placements of the family members.

How great is that? Family Pillows are a “Must”!!
