A Day in the Life...

Reading in the morning after a mid-morning snack while I catch up on email.

Waking up from an afternoon nap - - yes, she prefers not to wear pants.

All bundled up for our after-work walk through the park. Thanks to Greg and Judy for the very warm, fleece-lined white Nautica Kids hoodie (12 mo) and to (grandma) Cathy for the brown and pink flower boots from Carter's (6 mo).

Pink Pigs and Leg Warmers

Carter's white, brown and pink sweater dress (3 mo), Carter's long sleeve pink onesie (6 mo), Circo white legwarmers, and Carter's pink and brown (look like shoes!) socks. Truth told, I was skeptical about the leg warmers - - but they seemed to keep her toasty and made diaper changing a lot easier!

Lila has really started to love playing with the the super-soft pink pig from her (great) Gram and (great) Grandpa Weisse!

And many thanks to those who donated to Lila's Very Hungry Caterpillar Book Drive! Although it's not too late to donate, the raffle is now closed. Congrats to the winner!! (Who wished to remain anonymous!) :0)
