WW: goofball

My mom came over late Saturday to visit and spend the night. I was actually giving Lovie a bath when she got there. When Lovie, sopping wet in the tub, turned and saw Grandma standing there smiling at her, she instantly buried her chin into her chest and darted her big browns up at me and away from Grandma. It kills me when she does this shy act and it's really hard not to laugh out loud. A few minutes later and they're BFF's, of course.

Such was the case with Lovie and Grandma on Sunday morning after Lovie woke (she went to bed shortly after Grandma arrived on Saturday). They were inseparable. I was able to make an entire breakfast, clean the kitchen, serve breakfast all without Lovie hanging on me or even popping into the kitchen or calling out for me one time. Not once. (And because I've got a couple screws loose, I missed her hanging on me, whining for me, calling out for me and ended up checking on them several times. I'm a freak of nature, I know!)

After breakfast we were all just hanging out and it dawned on me that it had been a good couple weeks since I took any substantial pictures. I love having thousands of pictures to look through, but I also really enjoy living in the moment these days, you know? I don't want to be behind the camera snapping pictures of my Lovie as she plays and does her thing when I can be down there with her. You know what I mean? Argh. But still, I felt I needed some pictures so I snapped a bunch for about an hour as Lovie goofed around with us.

My lord does she make my heart swell.


  1. Freak of nature? No, no, I've had days when I thought I really needed a break from the kids, but then when grandma helped out, I kept checking on them several times too! Your Lovie is adorable!

  2. Oh I could eat her up she is so sweet!

  3. She's adorable - I have the same feeling when mine are at school sometimes - I miss them, but once they get home I'm ready for them to go back to school

  4. Loose screws my ass! That's normal. Either it's normal or we both have loose screws. Proud to keep the company :)

    Can I just tell you that baby thighs are the cutest things ever? Well, second only to their toes. Ada still has a little baby roll that I love to squeeze.

  5. thanks. :)
    sometimes i wonder how she doesn't have any bruises from all the kissing and squeezing i do to her whenever we're together. ;D


speak your mind.
