Who else? Lyla…

// March 1st, 2010 // family

I’m traveling this week to Salt Lake City for work, and then back again next week, and one of the most painful parts about it is leaving behind my two girls. And Lyla especially because she doesn’t know yet why I’m gone (nor do I know if she even realizes it, but I think she does) and that’s hard sometimes for me.

Yesterday I was running out on an errand and she was waving to me from the kitchen window, and then when she realized I was leaving, I saw her face curl up into a cry. Oh man…that was tough.

But I had a great last few days with her…we hung out on Friday afternoon, spent some time together this weekend with friends and then this afternoon we went to the mall, played on the kiddie play area, saw the puppies at the store, drank some Diet Coke through a straw and chased birdies around.

She loves birds…she sees them and says “biiirdeeee!” Today she was like a little golden retriever chasing them around.

Here are some recent photos…this first one was taken just today while we were out playing. She just loved being able to sit in a chair.


Love those eyes

    I love all the pictures (as I usually do!), but was especially taken with the Hudson duo. It’s fun imagining she is developing a social calendar! I like the chair one, too, but she is getting too big too fast for gramma who is so far away!

    I love how my boy seems to be flirting with your Lyla, too funny. I don’t know what Lyla thought of him, so cute together.
