joy = sweet smile

My daughter, four months old, is becoming more and more interactive. I love it.

I especially love it when she’s nursing and I look down at her, then she looks up at me, pauses and smiles up at me while still latched on. A couple seconds go by and then the nursing resumes.   That is the sweetest smile and truly a gift for nursing moms.

joy = hiking to a waterfall

Today we went for a hike to Wallace Falls and it was perfect. Absolutely perfect.  Not too hot (although hubs and baby got pretty hot in the pack), not too shady, not too hard, not too easy, not too long, not too short, etc.  Best of all, there was a waterfall at the end and I love waterfalls.

joy = summer in seattle

We are in the midst of a four day stay-cation; today we spent our day visiting Pike Place Market and Alki Beach.  It was an absolutely wonderful day – both with the weather and with my family.  I didn’t want it to end, except for the fact that I knew we were going to end our time at Alki with milkshakes at the Luna Park Cafe – yum!

Looking through a painter’s stall into the flower stalls.  We really liked this painter’s work and might end up getting one  for our home.

I still am not used to seeing cruise ships on the Seattle waterfront. This lady doing tai-chi by herself was cracking me up…how funny.

Loved this street band. Notice the guy on the right. He’s playing a rope and bucket. Not sure how that works, but they sounded great.

Old market, new buildings.

All the fresh produce is so pretty, and I love the free samples.   =)

The fish throwing stall was a bit slow, so one of the guys got out a package of smoked salmon and started handing out samples.

The famous sign, from behind.

On to Alki beach.  I’ve always loved how when you are at Alki, you are in Seattle, but looking at Seattle. Figure that one out.

So beatiful.  So fun.  Lovely day.

joy = little feet

I just love these little toes.  Our dog does too: she has discovered how kissable they are.  And baby has discovered that it’s funny to have a dog kiss your toes.

joy = laughter

My heart is filled with joy when my almost-four-month-old and I spend several minutes just laughing at each other for no reason at all. She will smile, I will laugh, she will laugh, I laugh harder, she laughs harder. I love it.  Nothing is sweeter.
