we are leaving for a week long road trip tomorrow! so excited to try this with our baby; my mind keeps racing with possible scenarios as i try to envision what it will be like for us. we will be doing a mix of camping, couch-surfing, and motelling, from mountain to desert to beach very much like this unforgettable trip when the tiny sprout had just started inside me, when she was just a twinkle in my eye.
speaking of the tiny sprout, she is not so tiny these days! she is nine months old, on the prowl, and proud of it. she pulls up on everything, including her little wooden chair upon which she promptly fell and hurt her lip, first little ouchie :( she is busy busy busy, always alert to anything new and interesting.
the days are warm and full and i fall into bed exhausted. it is fun work but it sure keeps me busy; lucy loves it when i come up with new stuff for her to enjoy, like bubbles:
though they freaked this guy out a little...
or letting her pull everything out of this storage drawer under her crib:
or an afternoon at the brewery:
she waves at everything and everyone these days, the trees, the moon, new friends, her cats.
she also gets super excited and pants with enthusiasm when she sees something that delights her, which is often.
ever since she was a newborn she would stick her arms and legs out straight and quiver with excitement.
a visit with cousin utah, counting his little toesies.
being mommy's modeling assistant for our etsy shop:
(for this one we made it a game, timer on two seconds, a mad dash!)
and last but not least...looks like it's bathing suit season :)
sunshine, water, a stripey crab skirt suit, well...life is sweet.
i hope you all have a marvelous week full of adventures and i'm sure i'll be back with stories to tell ;)
