sunbaby

Mondays are hard for me. I miss my little Baby Precious. I look back on the weekend of hugs and slobbery kisses and getting my baby hairs on my neck pulled by tiny hands. Poop explosions that lead to 2 o'clock baths. Fussy times that beg for us to rock, rock, rock my sweet girl to sleep and tiptoe around for the next hour. A real, good cry when hurting herself that only Mama can console. Andy bringing home fresh spring flowers and me sighing because all I wanted was diet strawberry limeade. Weekend, please come again soon- I promise I will be more thankful for the flowers AND the poop explosions.


Pea went in her pool for the first time this weekend. It was the first and last time she wears this cute little swim suit. I had to squeeze it onto her little body. It says it's a 12 month size. Psh. Yeah right.
Oh, dear.

Once she saw her daddy set it up, she wanted to get in so bad!

"Mama, can I get in now?"

Squish, squish. Mama wants to eat you up!
Of course daddy wanted to put the kiddie pool on the highest power the water pressure could go. Which resulted in this. He also made a comment about 'how silly it is to have a MAX line'. Um, Honey- that's so you don't explode the pool/drown your kid/collapse the pool/drown your kid/ruin your kid's brand new pool or drown your kid. K?
She always made her way to the edge to get some grass when the water got boring.

I forgot to take pictures of my sun baby at the fundraiser we went to. She rode around in her stroller (in the big girl part!) and was SO good. The stroller always lulls her into this trance. She just remains perfectly silent and looks around. Of course everyone commented on how good she was!
I'm so glad I caught the below photos. She loves mirrors. And she has realized that if she gets in real close, she can see herself in her carseat mirror. So, everytime I put her in the car to go somewhere, we have to look in the mirror for a few seconds, even when the car is 42,861 degrees and I just want to buckle her in and get the air going. New routine: start car, pump ac, mirror time, buckle baby.

Overall, a great weekend of baby loving, husband grilling, and sunny weather.
marinated and grilled flank steak with lime and corn beans and a roasted tomatillo. totally blogworthy, baby.

Wendy, she is just so cute! We had the same problem with bathing suits. My Mom bought my 5 month old a size 6-12 Month suit and it is way too small. Who knew?
