When entering the library yesterday morning, I was pleasantly surprised to see Cari with her niece Amanda.
I had met Cari with Amanda at the playground the previous week and had told her about library mondays.
We all had a wonderful time singing and listening to story time as usual and before leaving Cari asked for my number.
Cari: “Claudia, can I get your number? You seem to be the mom in the know”.
A quick flashback went through me.
Not too long (but yet what seems to be lifetime ago) when I worked retail, I was the one my co-workers would refer customers and hotel guests to.
Back then, I was in the know of the hottest clubs, restaurants, lounges, anything that had to do with going out on this beach on any day of the week.
How my life has changed, I quickly thought to myself.
Me: “When did that happen?”
Now I’m in the know of library mondays, afternoon pool tuesdays at Sebastian’s, meet-up beach thursdays, music classes, free museum days, diapers, cereal, strollers, bottles, blankets….anything that has to do with babies.
A big smile came across my face….thank you Lily! 🙂

Despite all the rain over the weekend (it’s officially rainy season), we had a wonderful weekend.
On friday, a big rainstorm and loss of electricity inspired us to take out the RummiKub game board and play a couple of games. When I was pregnant with Lily, Will and I used to play all the time! It was wonderful to have her out of the belly and join us. 😉 At night I took some pictures of some of my favorite decorative objects in our apartment. The lighting was perfect!
Before Lily came along, Will and I hardly ever used the pool in our building.
We are definitely bigger fans of the ocean however, having the pool right downstairs has been a wonderful thing. It is much easier to just grab a few things and go downstairs instead of grabbing a whole bunch of stuff and walk 30 minutes to the beach.
Lily loves the pool! She splashes around, kicks her legs , floats in her floaty, she just has the best time!
The pool area is not a large area. There is barely enough room to walk around the pool and there is not much room for chairs and some tables however, there are wonderful flowers and vines all around it. Some even end up in the pool, floating delicately in the water.
Spending time at the pool with Lily has given me the opportunity to explore all the wonderful nature treasures in our “backyard”.
Here are some shots our sunday afternoon at the pool.
