on playground pensiveness

Lucille loves the playground – she really does. But for whatever reason, sitting in the driver’s seat the other day put her in this unusually pensive mood. I’m assuming she was carefully considering the difficulties of teething or inconsequentialness of napping according to a schedule – since she knows her mom has also been committing a lot of thought to these things lately. ;)

Lucille’s first selfie

I am beginning to detest this word, but when I first showed Nate the photo, it’s what he called it and it made me laugh – so there ya go. It’s a selfie and hopefully her one and only for a very long time. ;)

Have a wonderful weekend! And if you haven’t already, you can read more about my family over on The Daily May blog! (older sister, myself, younger sister, mom and dad)

on adventures with little sister

…we had brunch at The Market and talked leisurely with Al (not pictured). ^^

We drank coffee in cool coffee shops ^^

…where Nate contemplated his basketball win (and injury). ^^

We took a photo in front of a fan (as most normal sisters do). ^^

Then Lucille got cheeky… ^^

while rocking a sweet hand-me-down bomber jacket (thanks, Aunt Lisa!). ^^

And lastly, we did a little exploring. ^^

We’ve reached the point with Lucille where she loves exploring so much- forget about trying to get her back in the stroller or heaven forbid, go inside. It turns into a full on soul-crushing, world-ending experience in which recovery needs a full 5 minutes. Her face looks something like this for that 5 minutes though and it is a little heart breaking. :)

I love visits with Hillary. They’re easy and fun, and as it is with my sisters, I can never say goodbye without knowing the exact date of when our paths will cross again.

In reflecting on the week with Hillary, I suppose I should start with a post about flowers. :)  After a trip to the flower district downtown, she filled our apartment with the most beautiful arrangements (like 7 of them), and they continue to brighten our space 4 days after her departure. She really is a natural and I look forward to seeing the beautiful things she will create in the future. :)
