out of the mouths of babes . . .


recently, lily had this r a n d o m thing to say to me about that day’s upcoming events . . . 

lily:  i can’t go to school today because it’s too scary for me.  but i can’t go to school and eat lunch and play because it’s too wet outside.  but i can eat cheese now and i can hold it!

funny, the whole “it’s too scary for me” phrase has been popping up a lot lately.  (and i swear, we are very very careful about what she watches, hears, etc.  i’m not introducing her to scary     movies . . . yet!)  however, she seems to be saying it about everything these days . . .

mama:  lily, do you think we’re having a baby brother or baby sister?

lily:  a brother

mama:  should we name him, gus?  (that’s our boy’s name, by the way)

lily:  no, that name is too scary for me, mom!

h i l a r i o u s !  i can’t wait to hear what this girl comes up with next.

a little candy bribe goes a long way!

yesterday, our friend* was nice enough to meet us down by the lake and take a few family pictures of us for this year’s christmas card. it was a gorgeous florida day. just cool enough and not a cloud in the sky. we had never been to the main lake here in downtown clermont, and loved it so much that we can’t wait to go back!

we kept the photography session super short, so that we could capitalize on lily’s short attention span! she really cooperated and was totally hamming it up for the camera. (sounds just like her dad, right?) anyway, we ended up with some incredible shots, that only a good nap and bribery with candy could produce.

below are a our favorites that didn’t make the cut for the christmas card.

e n j o y!

(* a special shout out to cesar, for sharing his talents, giving of his time, and for being such an awesome friend. thank you!)
