The Sweet Spot

We've hit that sweet spot, my favorite time of year. After dinner we often head out for a long walk through our neighborhood, talking and taking in the scene. Perhaps we will stop at a park so Cordelia can blow off a little excess energy before bed. Well, that's the theory, but she never really tires herself out, she's two.


We will head home as the sun is setting, the twilight seems to linger forever this time of year. We spend the rest of our evenings outside in the backyard, not really doing anything at all. Cordelia eats fruit popsicles. I wander around and do random yard work until Eric reminds me that I am pregnant and I should just sit around so I try to.

We talk. We play. Cordelia explores. Bumblebee lounges in between running through the yard like a freak.

Sometimes the cats come to the back door to watch with disdain.

When the light begins to fade it is time for this two year old to settle into her bedtime routine. A great way to finish the day. How I love this time of year. I can't wait to add another little lady into the mix! For the record I can now say that I am due next month!
