the other afternoon,
as i was unloading groceries from the car in the driveway...
livy crawled out onto the porch and made herself comfortable.

it's as if that cement step was made just for her.
*she sat there for nearly five minutes.

i quickly grabbed my camera
'cause i just wanted to bottle up that moment
and save it for all time.

both livy,
and my 17 surviving zinnias
are growing at a crazy-fast pace.

liv is taking steps, sometimes a dozen at a time.
there's been cheers and lots of excitement.

we also shout for joy
each time a new shade of pink pops up in the zinnia bed.

....lots of blooming going on, and it makes me really happy.

She looks like a little mini myron! So cute. I remember when Chloe was taking her first steps and was a big hit at the office. Crazy how time flies.

It was fun catching up on all of your posts! You're pretty much awesome.
