Can I just say how much I'm looking forward to our trip down South? We're heading out at the end of the Month for a week and I cannot (CANNOT) wait for a little sun in my face and sea water in my hair. You know I need the sun when Mike is looking at a picture of me and exclaims "Gosh you are white!" - I'm not offended. And I probably should consider the fact that I'll be wearing shorts and you know, maybe shave my legs! I'm horrible at that during the winter :| Either way, it's all part of the process of welcoming the season ;)
I love this time of year for feeling creative. I think it's the Spring weather that's starting to uncover the ground - and I love the smells of wetness and just the feeling that we've got the WHOLE spring and summer to look forward to. I get so giddy thinking about it! I bought a splash suit for Juney and I can't wait to see her toddle around in puddles while she's wearing it! Speaking of which - guess who took two steps on the weekend?! It's true. I am so so proud. Also so so scared. Life is about to get that much more hazardous I'm thinking. Right now we get a few minutes of reprieve after she wakes up in the morning because she'll sit and play happily in her play pen beside our bed. I'm wondering how much longer we'll be able to keep that up :) How many million times in life will I say "I want her to grow, but why does it have to happen so fast?!"
I'm sitting here typing this and I can actually hear birds chirping outside. I'm probably going to have to stop myself from running out the front door and running around in circles a la Maria Von Trap. We don't have beautiful rolling hills - just a muddy school yard so I'm pretty sure the effect wouldn't be as powerful anyway ;)
