Like a Summer Thursday (what i wore, week 24)
"her eyes were laughter, her touch divine,
her face was crystal and she was mine."
(good old Townes)
me and my girl do some serious hanging out these long indian summer days. favorite activities: reading, going to thrift stores, dancing, singing, eating peaches and strawberries and making smoothies, looking through photo albums, pulling everything out from my purse, coloring and trying really hard not to eat the crayons.
since dolly asked, i figured i'd show what my lil pregnant self is looking like this week.
24 weeks pregnant. lucy just turned 14 months old.
we like popsicles. lime, raspberry, strawberry, coconut, pineapple. we are liking them and licking them well into september because as i've said so many times before. it . is. still. HOT. here.
thus our outfits still revolve around sundresses, both of ours recently thrifted.
i really like that mine has tiny planets and rockets printed on the trim. also pockets.
on another note, my hair turned straight this pregnancy. it is very thick but doesn't grow fast like hair supposedly does when you're pregnant. and it also seems darker, besides the grays!
right after this we retired lucy's gold sparkly jellies. to wait on a shelf for her baby sister. they are size 6-12 month and her feet finally seem to be growing a bit! all that walking is giving her strong little bear paws.
an unrelated note: i am letting my lawn die this time around, these long dry months just wreak havoc on my water bill, and it is kinda breaking my heart. i like a big fresh green lawn to roam and play upon, in my nice-girl-from-suburbia heart. but this bleached yellow scratchiness fits the season better anyway, so here it is. until the rains come.
"so like a summer thursday
i cry for rain
to come and turn the ground
to green again."
one more outfit shot, just for fun. i wore this crazy 80's jumpsuit the other day, when the temp got down to the (gasp!) low-80's! crazy to think if i were transparent, you'd see a happy, temperature regulated, upside down, or sideways, or roly poly, rollicking frolicking teensy tiniest infant inside that round belly.
approximately 106 days to go.
