Here are some things that have been making me smile these days...
Unexpected Pleasures...Look at these adorable booties! Lovingly handmade by my wonderful friend Nicole, Luca Bean now has the proper footwear to show off his crazy dancing feet! Thank you, dear friend!
Crazy Outing Days... One day a week, I take the three boys on a "big" outing that involves loading the kids and assorted paraphernalia into the minivan and driving somewhere kid related- the train museum in Old Sacramento, Bay Area Discovery Museum, Academy of Sciences, Oakland Zoo. The big boys have broken their addiction to riding in a stroller everywhere so it's been kind of nice to wear Luca in the Ergo and have Matteo and Nico walk along holding my hands. They've been great at not running in separate directions (mostly) and I've been better at just going with the flow. It's crazy packing up everything for a day out. Honestly, I feel like I do these trips just to prove that I can.
Playing with the camera... I have been loving the camera that Ivan got for the family for Christmas! I am looking forward to having more time to learn about the settings and how to do different things with it. Since Luca is a constant companion on me, the poor little guy has found himself hanging in odd positions as I try to manuever myself into funny angles just trying to get that "perfect" shot. In the picture above, he wanted to play too :).
The lilies from Mother's Day... Ivan brought me lilies on our very first date, so they've always been such a special flower to me.
Thank you for making me smile every day.
I love you all.
I love you all.
