Moments captured like these are ones I'm going to ache to go back to. I know I'll reminisce of these days when life seems so simple. A content baby playing with an empty water bottle, babbling away and only knows one word that she loves to say over, and over - "dada."
Hazel is 7 1/2 months old now. She's been crawling for well over a month, she can pull herself up onto almost anything, but mostly only does onto my knees when I'm sitting on the floor, or our tv cabinet where the dvd player is, she loves that thing. She has a forehead covered in bruises right now because she had a few good bumps and tumbles these last couple of days. She just sat in the stroller like a big girl today, and absolutely loved it. I think walks are going to be more fun for her. She's more content playing on her own, so I'm starting to cook more and feel a bit more on top of things around the house. December was crazy, as always, and Dan worked a lot, so we're spending more time feeling like we have a bit of routine going on which is nice.
Lindsay and I spent a few days in Victoria earlier this week which was such a treat. We wanted a little escape to get some fresh ideas and inspiration for T&T. We spent a lot of time just relaxing in our cozy hotel room, ordered room service and Hazel played in the bath for quite a while! I love that she loves the bath now, it's becoming one of my favourite parts of the day.
Oh my little babushka, I love you so.
