toes

My dearest Lily,

Yesterday you took a 3 hour nap next to me on our bed.

While you slept, I couldn’t help but to stare at you still in disbelief that you are here and that you are ours.

In the same room that we sleep in now and in the same bed, I took many naps with you in my belly.

I would day dream of whatร‚ย  you would be like.

Well, all the day dreaming in the world, would never come close to how wonderful you REALLY are.

I love your hair.

I love your eyelashes.

I love your cheeks.

I love your nose.

I love your mouth.

I love your hands.

I love your fingers.

I love your feet.

I love your toes.

I love ALL of you.

You are the best thing in the world!

Love you,

mama

Self photo challenge

Joining Juliana at Shakti Mama with her photo challenge on the elements of self series.

This week’s challenge: favorite body part self portrait.

For me, my favorite body part (and not just on me but on women in general) is the neck, collar bone and shoulders. (I know, those are 3 body parts but they all go together ;))

It’s a part of the body that can show strength as well as vulnerability.

It’s one of the reasons I often prefer short hair to long hair.

Dirty little piggies

Last week Lily and I played in front of our apartment entry.

Not the cleanest place to play but, it was the only place with shade at that hour.

I got out the bubbles and even though it was the first time Lily was seeing them, she wasn’t too excited. She was more excited about the wand. (she wants everything I’m holding)

She also got to play with Morgan, our neighbor’s cute (cute, cute!) little poodle. Lily and Morgan get along so well. ๐Ÿ™‚

After an hour of crawling around on the cement floor, Lily was the dirtiest I have ever seen her.

Her legs and toes were BLACK!

It was straight to the shower when play time was over.

Lily loves plants

no attention to the bubbles

Little toe sock fuzz

Let’s admit it, there is nothing cute about sock fuzz. On big toes that is. However, little toes with sock fuzz are about the cutest things ever!

The first time I saw sock fuzz in Lily’s toes, I just about cried with happiness. I couldn’t believe little toes could get sock fuzz and how cute they were.

Just wanted to share some little toe sock fuzz with you…. ๐Ÿ˜‰
