ruffles and rolls dining 'out' morning traffic first dip new tricks old and new monkeys hair meets humidity porch herbs stormy skies sweet baby sleep
Every year right about this time, I look around and realize that suddenly it's summer. Cherry blossoms are fallen, giant green and copper leaves give our humble street a bit of charm, the days are long but full of activity. I generally don't think of myself as a 'water' person, but I have been pulled to gather the kids up and head to the pond as often as we can. Baby Roo is still moving at a snail's pace, and I am trying to make the most of this stage before keeping up becomes overwhelming. I love that we can stay out of the house all day (garden, park, beach) and not spend a dime, such a welcome break after a long winter full of pricey museums and gratuitous grocery trips to combat that cabin fever.
I am already feeling that this season is moving too quickly, although it's only just begun. I know our ten month old little lady probably has a lot to do with the anxiousness. You hit ten months and everyone starts saying she's about a year... and I am so not ready for that massive milestone. She is still just a sweet rolly-polly drooling doll, how can she possibly turn one?! It's safe to say that I will be soaking in every moment of these long summer days and chubby baby thighs, while they last. It doesn't get much sweeter.
