She's like a rainbow...

Ooh la la.

 It's rainbow at Poppytalk's Summer Colours Week. Only one day left. Looking forward to a splash of red tomorrow. Perfect timing for Canada Day!

Squeaky Clean

This boy. My heart melts for him.
Oh, how I love a squeaky clean baby. Soft skin and sweet smell. It has to be one of my favorite things. Linus and I always have fun drying off. I tickle and cuddle him. Then we head to his room. He likes to help choose what he's going to wear. If it's right before bed it will be fire truck jammies and if we're starting our day he always looks for his Elmo shirt. I love that he's able to choose for himself. He often grabs one of his stuffed guys to kiss and talk to while I dress him. He's just always so sweet. I can't get enough of him. He's my guy.

Periwinkle Sky Baby Navy Cyan Indigo Azure

Yep, it's blue today at Poppytalk's Summer Colours Week and I'm actually going to take a few new (and blue) photos to add to the pool this time. I've been slacking with my photo taking lately and it's time to stop! Wish me luck! I think I'll start with Linus' big blue eyes. Oh, how I love them.
Below are a few photos I already had. What a beautiful colour...


Tickled Pink

 I've been rushing around trying to snap a few more pink photos to add to the Colour Week Flickr pool today. We spent most of the day at my moms, while potential buyers looked through our house... I can still smell the perfume of whoever was in here last. Kinda gives me the heebie jeebies. We also took a little trip to IKEA. Linus and Jedi love the place and go totally bonkers running around the store, playing with the toys and eating ice cream. Linus decided to have a melt down about half way through the store today though. It was nap time, so I should have seen it coming. He flopped down onto the ground and flipped out for a while simply because things were not going his way. We eventually told him that we were leaving to get ice cream and proceeded to walk away. It worked. He followed us, all teary eyed,  saying "ice cream! Where are you!?". Ahh, two year olds. 
Little guy is napping now while I take in the stillness and a cup of tea. It's nice.


Strawberry Mint Lemonade

Well, I just could not find the time today to take my yellow photos for Colour Week. It was a beautiful day so Linus and I spent a lot of time out and about. I picked up a few groceries from Planet Organic and when we arrived back home I decided to make some fresh lemonade. I added mint leaves and strawberries for some refreshing flavor and oh me oh my, it was nummy! My mom surprised us with a little visit. She walked over with Sadie and Jedi, so they were all very happy to have an ice cold glass too. I say 'all' because Sadie managed to pull herself up to the coffee table and take a few sips from Jedi's cup before we caught her. Little sneaker...
I was able to post a couple of these lemon yellow photos on the Colour Week Flickr group, so I wasn't a total failure.

Summer 2011 Colours Week!

Oh mah goodness, it's Colours Week with Poppytalk! Today was yellow and unfortunately, I didn't realize it was happening this week so I have no new photos to share... But,  I'm really looking forward to filling the flickr group with pretty colours all through the rest of this week. I'll be back in this space later to share Monday's yellow with you. It's better late than never, right!


Impromptu jam session

We love unexpected visits from our beautiful friend Sarah. She always ends up filling our day with love, impersonations/ hilarious accents, pretty paintings, music, good conversation and a lot of cheese... in everything! Linus is completely in love with the girl. He's always so excited to see her and asks about her when she's away. It's because she's such a goof and she's comfortable around him which makes all of us comfortable around her. We ♡ Sarah.


This Moment

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A photo or two...or three - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. (inspired by SouleMama)
