Nico spent most of the weekend at my parents' house, her first overnight without us. I love my parents' place in Spring, everything is so lush and green. I was feeling sort of sad that Nico does not have a big grassy yard to roam around in, but we do have a park right up the hill, and we do have the beach not too far away, so I guess I can't complain too much. She climbs, dances, spins, hops, and is saying all sorts of new things.

I sewed some new pillows and got that apple one from one of my favorite consignment shops. Nico is thrilled to still be taking these monthly pictures.

She loves to squeeze behind the sofa and look out the window. Sometimes she goes back there and rests her chin on the windowsill.

The weather has been amazing the past few days, so warm and wonderful, the kind of weather that you hate to be indoors for. I discovered along with the calla lilies growing in the back yard we also have freesia. We took a walk with Tracy up to Huntington park and over to the cable car museum. Here's to wonderful spring weather and blossoms all around.
