Tinkerbells Stroll

How cute is Stella's Tinkerbell outfit?  She insisted on putting wings on top of the wings the outfit already has. After everyone left on her Birthday Mario and I were taking a few remaining things down from the tents.  She did laps around the yard for almost an hour. After we were done, we sat down in 2 chairs and just watched her for a bit. She would stop every once in a while and rub her eyes then keep going. She was pooped. She pushes her baby stroller all over the house. The next day she even wanted to bring it in the car with us and sit it next to her like a car seat. Every night she's been tucking the "baby" in on a pillow bed next to her crib. She kisses it, gives it drinks from her sippy and rocks it. She is such a little sweetheart, I love it.

This last picture pretty much sums up our last few days.  Totally happy about it too.  I was really needing some down time.  One on one time with the girl Some time to just putter around the house and let Stella play with all of her new birthday toys. Luckily that's what the last few days has consisted of. Those mundane things that sometimes bore you to death. I was craving mundane. No parties, dr appts, funerals, etc. No matter how excited I was about the party and how happy I am that it was amazing, I'm glad it is now a wonderful memory. I was feeling really off and fragmented and desperately needed a recharge not just of energy, of spirit.

"The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, not to worry about the future, or not to anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly."
