Just enjoying life and all the new thrills through the eyes of a two year old.

Making me smile...

My baby sister is now a newlywed. My house was the backdrop for this beautiful couple to say I do...

my nephew was the "best little dude" and played dual roles for my sister and new brother in law.

My dad and my sister rocked out!

My older sister and I at the rehearsal...
And last but certainly not least, my Avery Grace with her "long hair", she left this towel on for a good hour...

life is good...with long hair~

Beach babe

The beach. We bought a place at the beach. I am nervous and excited and ready for summer. I cannot wait to make memories that Avery Grace will remember forever. That will seer her soul and allow her to pass the fun to her children and theirs, the "remember when's" that only the beach can allow. I think back on all of our family treks to Florida to soak up the salt and the sun, and think of long car rides and learning to swim in the condo pool, fishing on the levy with my dad, smelling the salty air our night walks on the beach.
I am ready for a sandy summer. I am ready to start making memories, the ones that last, the ones that love.

I am feeling a bit discombobulated. The walls around me are closing in, I can't find socks that match, the key to the car...a reason to write on this here blog, with the exception of a reason
not to post as a post to post.?.
Anyway I am searching, probably more wandering than searching, looking for structure, organization, order. Hopefully the presence of mind to get my sugar together, or at the very least, give my sock drawer a much needed makeover.

I took these pictures in Florence this past summer, the seem to have their sugar all together.

Have I mentioned before that my girl has 2 different colored eyes? She does. One is blue and one is a caramel brown. Upon our pediatrician's request I took her at a young age to see an eye doctor. She is fine, perfect indeed, just a pigmentation abnormality. So I know that vision has nothing to do with color, but a part of me hopes that the different hues allow her to have different views. Maybe. But for now she will be my little 18 month old blue eye brown eye beauty.

Rockin' Out.

We have been crazy. Rockin' out to our own music, singing, travelling, trying to stay upright. My girl is 18 months old. She is a pistol. Her very own person. When we are snuggling up and she is almost asleep I think back about the tiny person I brought home and how much I wondered about who she would become, who I would become. And although her temper can rival an irish man not minding his pints, she is an entire life I have been waiting for, and as each day passes I am thankful for every single moment.

I have been busy. Not in a rushed I have so much going on sort of way, but I have been busy. Nibbling on theses toes and holding these hands as these chubby legs try to hold up an almost one year old girl.
I can hardly believe that my sweet baby will be one in two weeks. My God time does fly, life does pass quickly, I have been holding on tightly to each day. She is the smile in my mind when I need to remember why I am doing everything I am doing to make our life great. So while busy is relative, it is my life right now. Big things are coming and I cannot wait to share, but right now, little legs are ramming a Jeep walker into my shin, off to play and get some slobbery kisses!
