.:P52 - Week 17:.

Week 17 - Green fair weather has returned... this meaning time spent outdoors, and the little pea has finally met her younger cousin... for this week's theme I had thought of recycling bins, but trees are much sweeter to the eyes.. ;)
and a gratuitous photo of sweet little pea enjoying the sun... ^^

.:P52 - week 16:.

Week 16 - Things that grow

At first thought I wanted to get a photo of my fresh herbs, but then instead of things that grow I would have to change the assignment to "things that die"... well, this is life... so, as I believe this topic would be mostly of greenery and stuff because of blooming spring, I got this flowers shot as a symbolic picture... they're in our living room at the moment, a welcome home gift to the in-laws which they didn't want to take home...

and the real things that grow photo, our family road..

the first one is the model we've put on our wedding cake... We found it during a day out in asiago, we thought it would be meaningful and sweet on top of our wedding cake, and we could have it later at our home... sold!

the second one a little gift in between our birthdays last year, just looked right to get on with a family tradition with sweet little pea on the way... behind it is a gift from my very own sister of choice... ^^

and the last one an early wedding anniversary gift... we just figured once more little ones come our way we can always get the growing children separated models (ideally one with a cat;)

just looking at our living room display makes smile in the am hours when I'm getting up to prepare the one nighttime bottle...
we hope the family can keep on growing in years to come...

.:P52 - Week 15:.

week 15 - sacrifice

when I arrived in Italy, during the first easter time my father-in-law wanted to prepare a tree for the occasion that would last and that be practical... He went out in the garden and got some branches from his olive tree, my mother-in-law got to decorating it with my help... now every year during lent my in-laws bring upstairs this easter tree, with that much of butterflies and chicks to remember the season...

I believed this would be fitting for the theme this week... sacrifice of a father who allows a part of him to die so that life can begin all over again anew...

coming from a place where it is difficult to tell the change in the seasons, where life is always thriving, it is a joy to rediscover all this mystery of death and rebirth, this beautiful cycle which we are all a part of...

.:P52 -Week 14:.

Week 14 – Foolin’ Around

For this week's theme each of us in the family has a very specific idea of what to do to have a great time...
starting with the youngest of our house members:
loves playing with her music mobile, dancing with mamma (aka ME =), and last but not least, this young lady is crazy about her bath time... ^^

next up is our crazy cat... she fools around with all the household objects we forget on the table... she's good damn stealthy, can get a candy wrap or those plasticy things to close bags faster than you can think NO...

Finally there's me and the mr... lately our favorite free-time activity is talking to this little clown of ours and seeing which funny sounds she comes up with... her repertoire is always growing... and she is the best at pulling faces at people, oh the joy of being 2 months old...

.:Sleeping Beauty:.

this week here the weather's been a mess, the only thing that can keep the baby calm are hot baths and bottles, guess she feels the change...

we have tried to make her change to her room, but no success yet, we've only discovered that she sleeps to the corrs' "toss the feathers" and afro celtic, and laughs with madonna's "la isla bonita"... guess she is a little weird, but then again, I'm her mamma... ^^
