it's the little things
some weeks seem to be longer than others.
this week falling under the long category.
Big daddy was working late all week and I was flying solo for the majority of the evenings.
when today rolled around and my parents came in to give me a mini break I couldn't be more in need.
Lulu has been ultra sweet all week, and my heart feels like it could literally burst out of my chest I love her that much.
I actually find that when it's just the two of us, things tend to go pretty smoothly.
She follows me around like a little puppy, and whatever I'm doing, she wants to do it too.
I'm amazed at how well she is talking now, and am constantly being surprised by some new phrase she has picked up.
some of the things she said to me this week were
"I make you proud of me mommy?" when she coloured a picture for me.
"I strong & and have big muscles like you mommy"
"you do yoga and excersise mommy, so you back not hurt"
(my own personal in-home trainer)
"I appreciate you mommy"
"ooohh pretty earings, when I big like you I have earings?"
(yikes already she's asking...)
"I miss daddy, when he come home?"
"me get big girl bed soon mommy, I paint my room?""I like orange."
(oh lord..how do I work that into my all white monochromatic non colour scheme?)
"me have sip your wine mummy?" "pleeeeeeease?"
"me have sip your beer daddy?" "pleeeeeeeeease?"
there's plenty more gems, but those are a few that stand out.
I can't believe my little baby is turning (turned) into a little girl. sigh.
I swear, she just lights up my life, and I sometimes feel like I just can't get enough of her....
But then again....we all need a breather from time to time... and as I was saying, my parents were in town for the day and had a few free hours to watch Lulu for me.
Perfect, as it happens to be my good friend JB's birthday today, and I really wanted to take her out for lunch.
happy b-day jb!
So we ended up going to Cava for lunch, which turned out much better than I thought it would.
I've been for dinner, and was pleased, but didn't know if it lunch would measure up.
You can find out more here.
I also managed to get a bunch of errands done, baby free which was sooooo much more enjoyable.
who ever thought that having 30 minutes at summer-hill LCBO would be considered a luxury?
but it was.
going to the liquor store is considered an official errand, right?
Big daddy also hit the liquor store on his way home and stocked up (great minds think alike) so looks like we might be pretty drunk for the next month or so..
but we did pick up a bunch of fantastic wines, which I am really looking forward to enjoying over some good summer grilling.
like the Brunelli-2001 Brunello-Di Montalcino we had tonight with a grilled marinated cumbrea's flank steak, organic baby arugula, crumbled alex chevre cheese and aged 4 year vincotto balsamic vinegar.
a really great start to the weekend.
Some times it's the little things that make all the difference.
Oh and incase I don't post tomorrow- Happy Father's day big daddy!
Lulu's a lucky lady to have a pops like you.
