'Round Here

We're getting ready for a big trip on tomorrow.  We're very excited, but I admit I'm a little nervous about a 7 hour flight, 3 hour layover and another 1.5 hour flight with an 11.5 month old.  Should be interesting, to say the least.  Your prayers are appreciated!

As a result, our week has been quite low-key as I try to start packing and get through the mountains of laundry that seem to keep appearing out of nowhere.  Of course when I need to get stuff done arond the house, C seems to be more active than ever and at the end of the day sometimes find myself wondering what the heck I got done.  Please, other Mums, tell me you feel that way too at times?!  Despite the indoor chores, we've managed to escape to the great outdoors between rain showers (and gail-force winds) to enjoy the last of the golden leaves as winter seems to be right around the corner - at least it's starting to feel that way...brrrr!  And through it all C still manages to to get more and more adorable and hilarious and keep us well entertained.

We tried on her L.L. Bean Bear Suit that her Aunty R bought her before she was even born! (I highly recommend this for your little one - it's super warm but lightweight and not at all bulky.  It runs HUGE so be aware of that.  The suit C has on below is size 3-6months, and she's now 11.5 months and a tall baby,too). When we first tried it on her last December it was absolutely enormous but that didn't stop me from putting her in it for cold winter walks!  This year I thought, well - let's give it a go and what do you know - it still (kinda) fits!

We love bath time in our house.  It's never a relaxing time before bed.  I think it might actually hype her up even more.  But she has a blast.  Normally we all get soaked, but it's worth it, she's hilarious!  When the camera comes out, however, she does get a little bashful

Have a lovely day!


  1. Grace, I just love reading your blog! I mean you have fashion, pop culture, and best of all, pictures of Carys! This post completely made my morning and that last picture is possibly the sweetest thing I've ever seen. It's so fun to hear about everything going on in your life!

  2. I agree with Sarah! I'm loving reading your blog. And that last picture is just gorgeous! I am hoping that she will have a hug for her Aunty Ruth soon :)

  3. I LOVE that little bear! C is getting so big and is absolutely adorable! Good luck traveling. I will definitely be thinking about you!
