We call her "Crazyhair"

(Though this picture was taken outside, that's not the wind doing that to her hair. That's just her hair.)
We had a great weekend. Matt and I went to N. Myrtle Beach for two nights with some of the coolest church friends ever, while my parents hung out with Cadie. I love our sweet girl, but it was so nice to sleep and have adult conversation at meals. We came back Sunday and these pictures were taken Memorial Day.
So serious sometimes.

What else is there to say?

She's cute, she's funny, and she's on the moveShe makes me smile, even when I'm tired.
She likes to stand. She likes bouncy rhymes. I wish we had a good picture of the three of us. She looks like her daddy.

Our go-go-go girl

Cadie is always on the move. Even when she was just a few months old, she was - as my Nana would say - "just so busy!" One of her teachers said today that she wouldn't stop crawling even though her eyes were closing. That's our girl - pressing on even though she can't stay awake.

Anyway, she's really fun these days. I took these pictures last weekend.

She's playing with empty cardboard boxes and a plastic sour cream tub. She loved the noises they made on the tile kitchen floor.

A quote to think about...

I saw this on a blog I read occasionally -

Tell me, what is it you plan to do
With your one wild and precious life?

~ Mary Oliver, The Summer Day

I'm so often frustrated because what I'm doing is NOT what I had planned. I don't want these days to slip by me as fast as they are...
