Here are a few favorite moments over the past couple of weeks.
It was my birthday, and L took the morning off from work. We took K to a doctor’s appointment, and enjoyed a wonderful lunch at a restaurant we used to frequent over ten years ago! This was my priceless birthday view.
Mother’s Day 2015.
Brunch with K + L. We celebrated with both of our moms (a.k.a. the grandmas!) the day before, so we had Sunday to ourselves.
I was given an assignment by my former Mommy & Me group leader to do one selfish thing on Mother’s Day. I decided to pop into Anthro and check out their 20% off everything Mom’s Day sale. Apparently, everyone else had the same idea. It was a zoo! I managed to snag a cute blouse, so I’ll call it a win.
Having a little snack at the park with K. There’s a sweet park within walking distance of our new digs which makes us pretty damn happy.
K just turned 14 months. She is a happy, friendly, hilarious ray of light. Her personality has really blossomed over the past couple of months. She went through a very sensitive period where she couldn’t stand unfamiliar people looking at her or engaging with her. She didn’t care for other babies, either. Thankfully, she has moved on from that stage. Now we can’t get her to stop waving and smiling at every single person she sees. It’s adorable, but also somewhat awkward when strangers just want to eat their lunch, and they have a new little friend waving at them from the next table.
Looking at photos of her, I can’t help but feel like, for so many years, I had a hole in my heart that could only be filled by this amazing little girl. To know her is to love her, and I have fallen deeply, hopelessly in love.
