Sometimes a Girl Just Needs her Mommy

Ever had one of those days where your kids just CLING to you? You know, the kind of day where they drink their morning milk in the middle of the kitchen floor just to be in the same room as you?

The other night Miss Aubrey didn't sleep very well. No particular reason, she just woke up complaining a couple of times. Consequently, the next day she was a bit grumpy and the only thing she wanted was Mommy. It's kind of hard to do the dishes, clean the house, or do laundry with a 19-month-old attached to your hip, you know?

So I gave up on housework and we went on a walk instead. Even though it is November, we still have leaves that are just changing color. It is beautiful!

Miss Aubrey loves to go for rides in the stroller! Actually, she loves to do anything outside. Sometimes I just want to stay inside and get stuff done, you know? But it is actually a blessing that Miss Aubrey loves to be outside. She helps me take a moment to see the beauty around me.

So I guess sometimes a girl just needs her mommy, and sometimes a Mommy really needs her baby too.

  1. Awe, how cute. We seem to be having a cling on week, I just keep reminding myself to enjoy it while I can cause the laundry will be there tomorrow but one day she will out grow these moments!


  2. Gorgeous fall shots. And, I don't need much convincing to give up on housework!

  3. So sweet - love how you see her love of the outside as such a great way for you too to get outside!

  4. These are beautiful pictures! I love all those shades of orange. Hope your little girl is feeling ok.

  5. OK, those leaf shots are just plain amazing. Really stunning!
