What morning looks like

It has been terribly hot this whole summer but the last few days have been the worst. On Wednesday, factoring the heat index, the "feels like" temperature was 116 degrees. Miserable. Not surprisingly, we've been chilling in the air conditioning most of the time. Lily and I have been spending time outside early in the morning to beat the heat as much as possible. Yesterday I brought along the camera for documentation purposes.

Still wearing jammies, ready to head out the door...


Making her way through the yard...


Giving the chickens a passing glance.


She's got other things on her mind...


Like raspberries...




Still covered in dew, she's picking and smashing them in her mouth as fast as her little hands can work.


After she's had her fill, she's on to another adventure...


Not much going on in the driveway, so she turns to her playhouse. Sometimes when the door open's she is not so happy to see you...


Other times she is very glad to see you.


Next, it's time to swing. She loves her swing and never wants to get out once she's in it. This is the look of "one more push, please mommy?"


Love this girl and summer mornings together.

(um, we gave her those pants....and um, they're not pajama's) ;) BUT! She can wear them as pajama's! :)

Why did that sound like an elmo's world segment?

Thank you for my daily Lily fix! She's sooooo darn cute!

p.s. they do have a matching tank top with the word LOVE on it.....

Brook this is one of the cutest posts I have seen. It is crazy how much that girl is growing and changing. I can envision what Lily is going to look like as a teeny-bopper.

Isn't great being a SAHM!!!!

Poor Lily - for reasons out of her control she suffers the same "my bum looks big in this, doesn't it?" indignity that George does :)

Cloth nappy wearers of the world unite!

Being a stay at home Mom has really made a difference for you and Lily.
Thanks for sharing the moment by moment morning.
