Half Birthday

When fellow parents say don't blink, because you're baby will grow up too quick, I understand now. Here we are, six months old, halfway through our first year together. So rather than dwell on how time is flying, let's celebrate every milestone Lucy is slamdunking.
Six months has brought us
Sitting up on our own.
Mastered the phrases "maamaaa" & "baaabaa"
Is now able to eat soilds.
Teething like a drooling maniac.
Scoots around on the floor.
Picks out what toy she wants to play with.
Dives into my lap with open arms.
Loves playing in the grass.
Gets insulted if I attempt to give her a pacifer.
Gives out smiles, hugs & open mouth kisses like it's her job.
Is up 6am & is a chatter box.
Is a shutterbug.
Anything you are doing or holding is the most sought after thing.
Likes to check her toes immediatly after waking up.
Goes to bed at 7pm, or else there is serious hell to pay.
Her bouncy seat has clocked in a lot of hours in the past week.
She loves her puppies with reckless abandon.
She is our beautiful, hilarious, wild, smart, happy, affectionate, talkative, little Lucy &
we can't wait to see what the next six months brings us.



Weekend mornings are sacred around here; it's the only time during the week that we get to be lazy and hang out as a family. I try to drag them out as long as possible before we must answer the outside world calling our names.


Summer whites & Strawberries

My cousin Zoe, my daughter Lucy & I headed to Maxwells Farm in Cape Elizabeth this morning in search of strawberries, and we certainly did not leave empty handed! 

I have not gone to a pick your own farm since I was a little girl with my mom, so hopefully this will be a nice little tradition. 

Happy Fourth of July weekend, ladies & gents!


Saturday Mornings


                                                              Are for..

- Catching up on the newest magazines while the house is still quiet.
- Daydreaming about Spring days to come with our little lady in tow & the adventures she will accompany us on. (Farmers markets! Greenhouses! Coffee dates! My heart.) 
- Rewritting your to-do lists because the first draft looked sloppy.
- Savoring that first cup of coffee, because the second one requires upsetting the apple cart (I.E the snoozing puppy in your lap.)
- Hoping there will be blueberry pancakes in your immediate future.
- Maping out your vegetable garden layout.

Happy weekend, friends.
