A Dizzy Afternoon


Yesterday I had some time to just play around with this adorable little one.  This is Bella, my niece, and she is finally here in Texas to stay!  For her first and second birthday I went to go visit her while she was living in D.C.  You can read about my D.C. travels here.  I put on this skirt and wore it as a dress just because I found it stashed away in the back of my closet and thought it would be fun to play a little bit of dress up.  Oh do you notice that the scarf I had braided in my hair is now being used as a double to wrap around my waist?  Yesterday we had a nice breeze so we were actually outside having a good time.  After the first time that I picked up Bella and spun around in circles, that's pretty much what the rest of the afternoon consisted of.  I was a bit dizzy but how could I resist that cute face when she kept saying, "Again Erica, again!" Aside from getting dizzy together, we also like reading and counting.  We count in English, Spanish, and French, although in French we only get to number 14.  She happens to find it the funniest word or something and just laughs at me every time I say it.





Hope you all have a great weekend with your loved ones :)
