Things we LOVE!

We purchased this Old Navy hat for Lily last year when she was still in my belly.

She’s been wearing it for a while now and we LOVE it!

It’s beautiful colors and pattern are perfect for a little girl to keep well shaded.

She’s almost outgrowing it. πŸ™

Here is Lily at the park yesterday keeping well shaded in her Old Navy hat.

YAY! Will is back!!

Will arrived yesterday early afternoon and oh boy, were Lily and I happy to see him!

It was Lily’s nap time when he arrived and he was exhausted as well so, they both took a little nap together.

Later in the afternoon we decided to go to the park instead of the beach (we were both too tired) and had a wonderful time playing on the swings, slide and Clifford.

It’s wonderful having Will back and we look forward to a weekend full of fun with all of us together again.

We wish you all a wonderful weekend!! πŸ™‚

Here are some Will and Lily moments captured at the playground yesterday. Lily wears dress and hat both by Old Navy.


Lily’s and Sofia’s first beach trip together

Yesterday afternoon instead of going to the park to meet up with Claudia and Sofia like we always do, Claudia suggested the beach since Sofia had never been yet.

What a great idea! Lily loves the beach and hadn’t been in a couple of days.

We met at 4:30p.m. and walked to the beach together.

Once we arrived at the beach, we pulled the strollers close to the water and let the girls out.

How exciting!!! Sofia’s first time.

She loved it right away. She had the biggest smile on her cute little face when first looking at the ocean.

The water was a big success also. Both Lily and Sofia dipped their feet in. It was at a great temperature. Not too cold, not too hot. The tide was almost all the way out and there were little waves rolling in.

They played in the water, they played on the blanket with the Winkel, it was a lovely afternoon.

YAY for Sofia’s first time at the beach and we hope we can have many more beach times together. πŸ™‚

Here are a few pictures of Lily’s and Sofia’s first beach trip together. Lily wears bodysuit by Old Navy, romper by The Children’s Place and hat by Zutano.

Things we LOVE!

We LOVE the Matthew Williamson for H&M tapestry we bought at H&M in Lisbon last year when we went to Portugal.

I was almost 5 months pregnant with Lily then but when I saw it, I fell in love with its colors and print. I thought about how perfect it would be for a baby to have at the beach.

Well, little did I know that it has become just that. Perfect!

It’s light enough that it folds into almost nothing so it has become a permanent item in the diaper bag. We open it up and enjoy it just about anywhere. At the park, beach, backyards…LOVE it!

Here are some of the wonderful moments we have had on our Matthew Williamson for H&M tapestry.


Feeling much better these days

Postpartum who?

Despite the fact that my hair is still falling out like crazy, that my body is still not quite  like it once was and that I only got up to go for my morning walk twice, I am feeling much more like myself and much better these days.

We went to the beach the past 2 weekends and let me tell you, it really helped. The sun, the beach air and the salt water do wonders.

It also helps that Lily has really taken to solid food so she sleeps longer during the day and during the night. I don’t feel as tired as I used to.

Last thursday night I got to go to dinner with my old co-workers and it felt  wonderful to be and feel like Claudia again. I left after giving Lily her dinner and a bit of breast feeding and it was all good!

I knew that what I was going through wasn’t going to last forever but, I’m sure glad that I acknowledged it, felt it, dealt with it and now it has vanished.

Oh, life is good again.
