Abbie- (backlogged post to the day of the picture) We've reached a co-sleeping stage, so most of her naps happen on my bed with me while I'm working, reading, or sometimes getting in a nap as well. Still haven't quite kicked the bink habit yet.

Abbie- Was the flower girl for the wedding of two of my closest friends, her adoptive aunt and uncle as well. She made me so proud this day by how well behaved she was during the ceremony and watching her dance at the reception with everyone. More on this wedding soon!

Mother's Day


"I'm so lucky."

"Why?"

"Because, silly, I have you!"


Today marks my third Mother's Day with my wonderful daughter. She let me sleep in, went with her grandpa to get me flowers, and was sweet all day. I couldn't be more blessed and I know it. Stayed in today with my family for mimosas, home cooked meals, and movies all day. I may not have a great relationship with most of my family, including my own mother, but I'm forever grateful to them. I love my mom, I love my daughter, and I love my life. Cheesy, so sue. We're happy!

Abbie- Dirty nap time feet. How to know it's almost summer time in our house.

Farmer's Market Saturdays

Yesterday, my dad took Owlfish and I with him to the Alpharetta Farmer's Market. My parents will quite often on payday weekends go shopping there for a good chunk of our produce and bread. As far as I know, Abbie had never been to one and while very grumpy through some of the walk, she enjoyed going table to table for the free samples (even if she didn't eat them.) She got to pet dogs and get her own cup of fresh squeezed lemonade as well. She was a pretty happy kid when she wasn't fussing.

She'll hate me one day for sharing this, but while at the main produce table (pictured below), Abbie snatched a cherry tomato from a basket of them on the table. I tried to stop her, but the sweet man selling the vegetables let her have it for free. So she smiled, took a huge bite of of it...only to then looked horrified, spit it out, and start crying. We assume that she thought it was a cherry or strawberry, which she loves. It was to adorable, even if she now looks at red fruit with caution now.

Abbie- She really does not like that I do all I can to keep her bink away from her. Major sass diva in this picture.

This picture was shot with a Nikon D3000 with Af-S Nikkor 18-55 mm lens (the kit lens). I have NO idea why Blogger made this picture so sepia looking, it's black and white in my folder, which is how I edited it to be. What's up with that?

Maypole, Maypole, round'n'round


The May-pole is up,
Now give me the cup;
I'll drink to the garlands around it;
But first unto those
Whose hands did compose
The glory of flowers that crown'd it.

A health to my girls,
Whose husbands may earls
Or lords be, granting my wishes,
And when that ye wed
To the bridal bed,
Then multiply all, like to fishes.


-Robert Herrick -1591


Merry Beltane! Blessed Be from Owlfish & Family!

Today also means that my spring semester is finally over and Owlfish's last day of her first semester of daycare is tomorrow. So grateful to be done with this hellish semester and I'll be glad to finally have more time with Owlfish, even though she dearly loves her school, her friends, and her teacher. She's probably gonna take some time adjusting to being home during the week. But if things work out with school, she'll be going back during my summer semester, so I think she will be ok. She decided tonight to be mean and not eat her dinner, not entirely sure why. But she went to bed early, so I'm going to assume she's just worn out from playing outside finally today after all this crappy weather lately in the South. Hopefully you all have had great weather and a great Beltane wherever you are.
