Happy 1st father day :)

Was browsing my phone photos the other day when I came across a photo from these days last year. My hubby walking and hugging our baby. Kissing him with eyes closed, just a moment. So sweet!

A friend is a gift to yourself.

I recently came across the following passage on Facebook, and it immediately blew me away. The words stuck a chord and I immediately started to think about how we all waste time to this… 
It took me sometimes to understand that is less important to have lots of friends and more important to have real ones.

Keep your face to the sunshine and you'll never see a shadow.

I have to say I am really enjoying creating this little inspirational wooden blocks :)

Here it comes :) lets jump on the Good night train!

Pad 5 and 6 from my Bed time book :)

These two pages have evolved a lot from the very first rough sketch, where Alex nad me we were just walking up the stairs. I am very happy I did the train instead. He smiles every time he looks at this drawing! And he laughs at Mona driving it :)

Pag 5-6

Upstairs we toot!
Splashy splash!
Brushy brush!
Pijama and story time with mama.

Us on the train at the zoo few months back.

Let me show you this whole new world.

 original mixed media painting on wooden block
3.5x1.5x6 inches


I so cant believe my baby will be two years old this summer. The time is going way too fast. Everyday I try to show him something new. Sometimes a place, or a game,  a new word,  or a sound,  or a new food. Today for example I took him for a scooter walk by the Lake Merced, not too far from where we leave. It was out first time there. He loved chasing and feeding the ducks :) . Yesterday he tried (and did not like!) eggplant and for tomorrow we are planning a new playground.
Thanks to my baby I am seeing my old new world with new eyes. And I am loving every moment of this.

Here are some photo of us, from today back in time.
Feels like yesterday he was a tiny tiny baby who did not know how to sit down and today he rides his scooter so fast that I had to get my self one too to keep up with him.
