walking & talking…

photos from a couple of our recent walks…

Alice in Wonderland.

I love these pictures. I love even more that when we walk, Sophia talks. she is definitely a late talker & I have been worried but just in the past 2 weeks I have seen her trying to say more words instead of just relying on screaming & pointing… a big sigh of relief from me.

my favorite pic from this walk. I see contemplation, big dreams, imagination & possibilities…

there she goes…


when we go to lake zorinsky for our walks we always have to stop by this dock that she loves so much & this time we saw ducks so she was pretty darn excited…

I have figured out how to take walks where both of us get exercise… I walk with her for about a half mile then pick her up & carry her for the next half mile, this way she can run & play & get exercise instead of just sitting in her stroller but then I still get a bit more of a “workout” from our walks. “fast-ish” walking while carrying her really is quite the work-out!!

there is another trail we have been to not too far from our house that is beautiful & it doesn’t feel too secluded. the only thing about this trail is that it is full of bikers & walking with a 2 year old is not a “single file” kind of walk. she is scared of the bikes that go blazing past so yesterday was all about learning bike etiquette. they would yell “to the left” & Sophia would grab my hand & we would step off the trail & wait for them to pass…

by the end of this walk she protested, she was done & she just sat down…


I carried her for awhile, worked up a sweat & then she was ready to get back at it…

that field of yellow flowers (wild yarrow??) is absolutely gorgeous…

Sophia, I love walking & talking with you sweet girl. I love that our days are spent together & that I get to see you discover this world around you.
