conversation with lily this morning:

l: can mommy get the cheese off my toast?
(pointing at a few yellowy white remnants of butter that didnt melt)
m: lil, that's butter not cheese
l: i no like cheese
m: its butter, you like butter
l: can mommy get it off?
m: no, its butter. its all spread on the whole toast, i promise you like it.
(lily stares at the toast)
m: just try it lil
(lily gently licks the little yellow white pat in the corner of her toast, realizing how wonderfully delicious melted butter can be)
l: can i have more butter please?

that's my girl. :)


i respected the turkey, so today it was go time for christmas celebrations! we planned to head out first thing in the morning to get a tree, but i was sidelined for a bit with the happy surprise that a client of mine was in labor. i headed out and BARELY made it in time to photograph her birth as planned (she was about to push when i walked in the door!)

we headed out after that to find a tree and lily was PUMPED. she enjoyed every single moment. here are a few pics


she's a maniac, maaaaniac on the floor....


i'm in mexico, hearing the waves crashing right next to me. glorious weather, beautiful sun. a gecko just ran across my table and i have a cold corona in my hand.

what else could a girl want, right?

well as wonderful (truly truly wonderful) as this is, i miss my babies and my husband. i wish they were here with me.

a quick pic i took on the beach. missing one big set of feet and two tinies...

girl needs to work a bit on her enunciation...

want to help out an amazing organization without lifting a finger? well, technically you'll have to lift your pointer finger...but only high enough to click your mouse.

go to facebook today and vote for teen living programs! my lovely friend nia is rallying the votes and if they win the moohlah from chase bank i know they will do GREAT things!



well its been a week with no update and five minutes to midnight here i sit wanting to be a good blogger but also wanting to be in bed.

this month promises to be nothing short of absolutely insane. work is off the charts nuts right now and on top of that i hold my breath a little every time my phone rings and its my sister on the other end of the line. those baby girls are sure to make their debut at any moment.

i am off to mexico (ole!) on friday and truly hope they stay put in their mommy's fishbowl until sunday at the soonest. here's hoping!! :)


she's a girl on a mission, she'll be crawling in no time!


eve is just a babblin' fool these days!
