random bits of everydayness


i am so moved after reading SoulMama's The Creative Family.  i guess it just reaffirmed the many new thoughts i have against consumerism and  and how imagination and creativity are essential in life.  i read all 199 paged tonight, it was awesome.  

i have so many thoughts the past couple of days that i am struggling writing fast enough.

thanks to adam i had a great relaxing sunday and i went to yoga, the farmers market and just unwound. that's when i felt transformed.

yesterday i took bayley to the beach, we made cookies, we're planning a trip to reno for my great aunts birthday, i'm sewing, i'm trying to be better to myself and those around me, i feel inspired, i'm finally feeling okay about having to move (5 months after we moved ), i'm simplifying EVERYTHING, my daffodills are blooming.

getting over this bad cold has left me feeling grateful and energetic. 

bayley is forming sentences, like "hi dada" at 4am  and listing names of all her favorite family and friends
she really really loves the moon and the other day we were at this little cafe and she met a girl named luna, the next day we went to a mexican place in camarillo named "luna's" hmmmmm......what is the universe trying to tell us??

today bayley's friend riley came over and we had lot's of fun.  we painted, wore silly hats, danced, took a wagon ride. bayley was in heaven.  she calls him wiley woo.  at night i tell her a story and it starts off:  bayley boo and riley roo went and sailed the ocean blue.....she asks for it if i don't tell it. 




seriously, i could stay up all night writing all i am grateful for and how blessed we are, but i'll go to bed cause i'm tired.  xoxo

love and colds

we've been sick.  coughs, fevers, runny noses just to name a few
and before that our house was fumigated and we went to disneyland
and i'm tired....really tired

but i keep thinking of all these little moments that make up "our story" and i want to write before i forget, because i have already forgotten and it's only been two weeks.

like how bayley loves this song and when it comes on the radio she yells out "love you!love you!" and boogies in the back seat.

maybe since she went to the doctor monday and screamed bloody murder at everything, even being weighed!!  poor thing, she didn't feel good.  maybe she's retaliating...
oh and she weighs 22lbs and is 32 inches and is healthy and well

bayley likes watching dinosaur train because she heard a little dino say "lala luuuuu" and thought it was funny.  now she says it all the time and it's so cute how she says it with such feeling.

and since my mom was here and helped me do 9 loads of laundry, i'm even keeping it up-yay me!!!

tonight bayley and i took a steamy shower/bath with candles and she thought that was really cool, she played with her baby and train while i relaxed until i realized i was sitting on the vapo rub dollop.... 
then we had a little dance party where she totally rocked out to the song "in the colors" by ben harper-awesome song!!!  and said "moa-moa"  (more)  mama.

bayley likes to point to things (objects) and say the word  i.e.  "candle"  and then wave and say "hi candle"  she even pointed and said hi to my boobs yesterday morning as i was getting dressed, whilst counting them.  "one, two boobs.  hi (waving)"  she said proudly.  Oh this is a fun stage!!

she talks more than anyone i know, and most of the stuff we understand.  she says "mickey balloon" very well after all day at disneyland trying to find her a freakin balloon, my mom finally got her one and it lights up and is really fancy.  it's still afloat too.  maybe i'll put up pics of disneyland....maybe not.  she didn't like the rides, but she liked toontown and the parade and her balloon and her bubble gun.

let us be well soon
