...4 months of lovin'.

Today was a PD day for Meg so we got to spend the day, sleeping in, baking muffins, drawing pictures and playing with Lola. I miss those days. Grade one has robbed us of a few of life's great pleasures. This morning I was reminded of one of them. My six year old is charming and lovable when she wakes on her own. 6 days a week now she is awoken with her curtains being drawn and her mother's voice singing sweetly (or so I think anyway) in her ear. She is still delightful but we are always in a hurry and there is no time for the love we would like to give each other in the morning. Dave is sick and last night he slept in Meg's bed so we could keep the sick out of ours. So this morning the three of us girls were in bed together when we all surfaced for the day. It was all smiles and giggles! And do my girls ever love each other. Meg played with Lola while I had a bath and this is what I found when I came out of the bath...

I love my iPhone but it doesn't like low light or movement. However this moment was captured because it is always handy! They are in LOVE, no?

The tone was set by this and our day was slow and sweet. Lola spent quite a bit of time in her "Rock and Bounce" and has started to push herself all over the floor in it. Every time Meg would leave the room Lola would push herself along and strain her neck to try and see where Meg had gone. And today she even started the old drop and retrieve game with a toy and Meg was happy to oblige...

...but who could resist this face.

4 months. And it feels like she has been a part of us forever. She probably has...


  1. She truly is a beauty. I find my self looking forward to Wednesday not only for our talks but for my baby fix.
    Note To Self:
    Must remember to NOT wear lipstick next week, one sniff of that head and I can't help myself!

  2. Thanks for your comment on my blog! I think it may have been longer than my actual blog! And I thought I had blogeria!
