blue eyes, bellies & bicycles...

Today the sun was shining... so Azriel and I got all dressed up to strut the sidewalks.
Here's her classic 'maniacal cuteness' face. 

She opted for one of my hats (you'll see why)... my plastic blue 'pearls'... and a freshly discovered handbag gifted to her from Christmas.  And yes, like last week's small style post, I still adore this gal in navy.white polka dots!

My blooming two year old is starting to look like a mini-me...  I lived in ball caps as a kid.

Sometimes I still do... hence, Azi sees - Azi wears one too.  I think her face here is hysterical, as if she's expecting to be crushed any moment from mama's 9month baby belly.

Then it was time to hit the sidewalks... on a push-bike... which inevitably ends two seconds later and Azriel - or I - have to push an empty bicycle the rest of the walk.

These mama-daughter days are extra-special lately on the eve of our new addition.
With baker Ben working full days again... we're getting a lot of time together just Azi and I.
I love discovering the world afresh through her blue eyes!
