We bought her a little Mexican-style dress in the Playa del Carment market, and from the minute it was bagged, she clutched it in her little hand and didn't let it go, not even in her sleep! Does she know it's for her?

While Mommy, Daddy, GB, Tia Anna & Uncle Colin scuba-dived, she enjoyed Paradise Beach with her Nina, Tia Nicole & the rest of the clan. She was well cared-for; I saw it myself when I popped in to give her some lunch half-way through the day!

E & Mommy walked a few blocks downtown to our Main Library (my favorite of all the branches I've visited). It was a HOT day upper-90s, but our new jogging stroller has an awesome swiveling shade so Eowyn stayed covered, and we both had hats & water bottles, and didn't mind the heat at all! Must be that Guatemalan blood comin' out... Anyway we cooled off for a while in the Children's Section, and E really liked this soft tower/block set. She learned about knocking towers down for the first time, and had so much fun!! Now I can barely get one block atop another before I have to say "boom!," as she's smashed it gleefully to the floor. Ahh, the marvels of gravity...

We went to Toddler Story Time with Jenny, Jane & Ryan. Eowyn did really well and seemed to like all the clapping and moving best! She also started gnawing on the carrot they were supposed to use as a paintbrush, which was great because she is a TEETHING TERROR today!

In an effort to entertain the Wee One during dinner prep, I gave her some frozen green peas. Genius. They entertained her for a solid half-hour, and I think she even ate some of them! (I did find a ton in her seat, though)

Her first-ever prize from a Summer Reading Program; a little green stachel filled with coupons for all sorts of goodies and places! She immediately began chewing the strap, in total bliss, just as I'd predicted to the librarians. :)

We've been sewing for the past 3 days, mending, making bows, and yesterday, making a new stash of taggy blankets to give as gifts. Eowyn couldn't be happier, playing with my fabrics, tape measure, ribbons, and empty spools. Such very large colorful messes to be made!
She's also quite taken with the mirror on our closet door. You can see the smudges where she had just kissed herself. Oh yes, and note the new bow (probably the biggest she'll ever wear)
We've been listening to Harry Potter & the Half-Blood Prince on audiobook as we work... can I count that in her "Summer Reading Program" for the library? =D

"This sun is bright, Mom!"
Mommy's newest kick is recycling and redeeming clothing. For example, this onesie was a stained and ratty long-sleeved onesie. (the sleeves were used as pirate leggings) I added lace "sleeves," and a bow over the stained area. I made a matching hairbow out of ribbon scraps and my favorite headband material, pantyhose. Ta-da! I got several compliments on her outfit!
