On the Move.

I'm in a bit of a blogging rut or perhaps it's just life has gotten so busy all of the sudden.  I can hardly keep up!  Chloe is on the move.  Crawling, cruising, pulling up on everything (stable or not), climbing the couch and tumbling off, ascending stairs...her curiosities change daily.  I find myself walking a fine line between encouragement of the little explorer and keeping her safe.  We (actually, Kevin gets all the credit) did some baby-proofing to protect her (and my favorite casserole dishes from being innocently broken).  It's pretty hysterical to hear her giggling and squealing as she finds new things to play with.  The joy of simple things.

With this surge of excitement has come an increasing number of quick recharge naps.  I tell you, this baby girl does not nap like most babies.  I have friends whose babies nap for 1.5-3.5 hours in one stretch and sometimes a couple 1 hour naps.  I am sad to admit, I am jealous of this reprieve.  Our little bloom generally naps about 30 minutes at a time and hour if I'm holding her or we are in the car.

Yesterday's nap was less than eco-friendly as I drove around the neighborhood for a much needed air conditioned nap.  Well, she did the napping, I did the driving.  A girls gotta do, what a girls gotta do.  Here we were yesterday, cruising around Huntington Beach.
Iced Passion Tea.  Try it, unsweetened is no calories.  Yum!

Enjoying a slice of quiet.

Nap-time success!
