As earlier reported, KL and I left our hearts in Santa Fe, leaving HML in the trusting hands of Nana and Zadie. Thankfully she was spoiled rotten and giggled her way through the entire weekend, but while we were gone, I couldn't help but ask myself, would our daughter remember us when we returned home?
I knew she was capable. She remembers her Nanny, and nearly jumps out of her skin every morning when she arrives. She remembers Uncle AZ, and always reaches to him and happily accepts his kisses. But at the end of the day they always leave, it's a part of their relationship to her. For us it's different, she expects us to stay - we are her parents after all - and what kind of parents would leave their seventh month old.
The moment I first laid eyes on HML she looked different. Could she have really changed in three short days? The feeling felt foreign, but then I realized it - she was looking at ME differently. She slowly smiled, kinda, but mostly with her eyes, she spoke volumes. I'm on to you, and even though I am glad you're back, don't think I didn't notice!
And so it begins at seven months old, our first official meeting of the minds :)

Tuesday's can be hard, so unexciting, and SO still at the beginning of the week. Find a little inspiration below and jump start that attitude!
Already feeling motivated, why not try to create your own font, like the hard way!

These DIY art supply pouches are SO cute, totally gonna bookmark these for future craft making sessions.
KL and I went to a wedding over the weekend and left HML at home with Nana and Zadie. It was the first time we were away from her, and also the first time in a long time that we slept the night through (sigh). It's beyond nice to have our little family back together, and we are ever so thankful for HML's extra loving grandparents. Here are a few pics (more to come) from our fantastic trip to Santa Fe :). Ps. The sopapillas are from Tia Sophia's (we went there for breakfast) which I highly recommend.
I am not accusing anyone of anything, but over the last few days three of my friends have had babies (YAY) but seriously, there might be something in the water. Nothing is better than welcoming life, so in honor of all things new and small, below is a collection (inspired by Kid Independent) of things new and small :)
