Baby Gnome

I have gotten a lot more comfortable with going out with the baby. I've always taken her out but now I am starting to take her out for extended trips. She's fallen into a bit of a routine where she wakes up between 7am and 8am, eats close to 9am, then takes a 20-30 min nap, and is up and ready to party. After her nap she's in a great mood so I take advantage and head out of the house. We mostly run errands but we also do some fun things. Two of them being going to Miami Children's Museum and Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. Because Alex can't come with us (someone has to work, right?) I try to document the trip as best as possible. I take pictures of Cati in her stroller in front of things and this reminds me of people who take pictures of garden gnomes in random places around the world.

The Museum was so cool. I wish I was a kid again so I could go play there. My favorite part of the trip was seeing The Wonderful Wizard of Oz Exhibit. I have been reading Cati the books, which are a great set of American fairytale literature. Cati with a cast in honor or her orthopedic papa :)
The Garden was stunning. It was so lush and beautiful and it had cool art exhibited throughout.
Don't the pictures remind you of the garden gnomes?! And because the photographer is always behind the camera, here is a rare picture of the two of us together:

You look amazing, and naturally Cati is so adorable!!
