"mama, why flowers?"

A funny little happening this past week...

It was suppertime, Phebe was sitting munching away on her spinach leaves, when she picked a particularly big one from her plate, held it up and asked me: "Mama, why flowers?"

Haha! I think she's confused why 'flowers', all of a sudden, became a food group! And it all lines up, because a couple of weeks ago our neighbours gave us a beautiful bunch of flowers... see below. I think she thought she was eating them! Ha!

Might I add, EVERYTHING is "Why?" at the moment: "Why raining, Mama?" - "Why clothes off, Mama?" - "Why people running, Mama?" - "Why hair wet, Mama?" - "Why Lilah school, Mama?" - "Why dirty, Mama?" - "Why bubbles, Mama?" - "Why no cookies, Mama?" - "Why hot, Mama?" - etc, etc, etc.

the arboretum

It's finally Spring again!

I love the change in seasons... imagine there was just one season, how boring would that be? There is just something wonderful about the Spring season and the new life it produces. It makes me so glad and thankful.

This morning we took a little stroll through the Arboretum. Ahh, we didn't even need our coats and the girls had so much fun - climbing trees, hanging from trees, sitting on branches of trees, making camp fires... there is something so wonderful about a child's imagination. It made us all smile with glee.

all dressed up...

My girls, dressed in their Sunday best, all ready to head out to Church this morning!

I've been meaning to take a few pictures of the girls in their Apron Dresses - by Handmaiden Canada for quite a while now. And also their Pixie Hats, that were handknit by my Mum, to match the dresses. I found the knitting pattern for the hats on Etsy and my Mum, who loves all things crafty, bought the pattern and did an amazing job on not only knitting them, but also choosing the yarn colour to match the dresses, especially considering she'd only seen the dresses in a photo.

These hats were part of the girls Christmas gift and I'm only getting around to taking pictures now. Yikes!

Seriously though - these two little pixies are so sweet!

'ove you too, baby girl!

My littlest girl has recently started to tell me: "Ove you Mama".
The best part is that it's not in return to me saying it to her, it's just whenever she feels like it during the day.
And usually it's followed up with her asking: "Hug Mama? Kiss?"

I adore her.

We've been together 7 months now. The bonding and attachment has been quicker than I initially expected,
especially considering those first few weeks and how her feelings towards me started out.
I admit, I did worry how long it might take for her to open her heart to me.

It's amazing what love can do.

'ove you Mama! 'ove you Mama!
