It's been about 2 months in my new place, and its starting to feel like a home. My new house backs up to a nature preserve, and I take walks with Lola there many mornings. Its beautiful and doesn't feel like I'm in the city at all. This morning we came upon a group of deer grazing and watched for what seemed like forever, it was so beautiful.
I haven't decorated for the holidays yet, but I thought I'd share a little peek around the house. It's starting to come together. I even have had time during some naps to do a little artwork as well.
Lola is now almost a year and a half and is growing so much. We had our first conversation today. She jumped off the bed and I asked her if she was okay. She turned around and said, "yeah mama." Small things, but it made me realize what a little person she is becoming. She says things like "mine" and "nope" in conversation and it makes me so proud to see her grow.
Her favorite food is now spaghetti, she loves to read Goodnight Moon, and her favorite thing is SHOES. Mine, hers, random people on the street. "SHOES!" she cries. A girl after my own heart.
I always get superstitious when I say things are going well, but I guess they are. Hope all is well for you all out there.
