In search of one morning adventure for mother/baby. Close by, not crowded, parking not an issue. Charm and outdoors required. Stroller friendly a plus. Suburban monstrosities need not apply.
Downtown Annapolis answered our ad. Not super stroller friendly if you want to whip in and out of shops. In a few months I think a monthly lunch with Luke would be agreeable.

The best part of weekend media was the resumption of Masterpiece Theater’s The Complete Jane Austen. Next Sunday is Sense and Sensibility so cement it in your schedule if it isn’t already.

Our Easter was wonderful! We hope yours was too!

Luke is six months old today.
My (read: me me!) mental checklist went something like this:
Still standing. Check.
Still wear lipstick or fancy Bobbie Brown gloss, regularly. Check.
Shower, do hair and make-up every day. Check.
Can carry on conversation re: Presidential race. Check
Ok, Camille. You are hanging in there with grace and aplomb.
Keep it up.
Remember: Slippery slope to sweat pants and a mini-van.
Especially where you live, honey child.

The parade was actually us,
We enjoyed walking behind this festive guy.
Signs of Spring along the parade route.
Lots of Easter activities at the beach.
There was an egg hunt somewhere.
Best part of the parade?
Yum yum YUM.
Finally the Easter Bunny!

He really really really does.
How do I know?
Me: At home with sleeping baby…
in the middle of nowhere, USA.
Him: Fancy shmancy restaurant…
in the city.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Mousse
From said fancy shmancy restaurant.

F asked me if I’d noticed how long Luke’s front hair had grown and noted that it now was regularly getting in his eyes. F decided we needed to cut it. I politely (or maybe hardily, I’ll never tell!) chuckled and said we cannot cut the hair of a six month old. Who ever heard of such a thing?! F hashed out which one of us should have the honor of making the first cut. He decided he should do the honors, proudly declaring he wanted to give the innocent lamb a bowl cut (In my mind I saw myself leaping -- bionic woman/Charlie angel style-- to prevent such an atrocity).
I jokingly suggested we use some mousse, after all a little hair product never hurt anything. My dearest husband’s response? “Well then we should use a silicone based mousse, we don’t want to clog his pores.”

I’ve always wanted to be a super hero.
Or at least one of Charlie’s Angels.
(If that wasn’t going to work out then an ESPN Sports Center anchor.)
I made a cake from scratch this afternoon. Yep, SCRATCH! A ginger chocolate pound cake. Shazam! I’ll report back on its tastiness tomorrow.
should never be without
a daily elixir.
we trekked to Annapolis
to run a few errands
i go to the only
without a starbucks.
who knew that was possible?!
pit stop on the way home.
whole foods for the elixir, er,
i mean coffee.
yes, even organic coffee.
somehow i managed to
get the other items on my list too.
today i began to procure certain items
for a certain easter basket.
i think the bunny will
drop off toothsome chocolates
for a certain caretaker.
for the child
not the caretaker.
many things to do

Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God. Titus 2:4-5

Faris did a great job and looked dashing in the Cat in the Hat hat. His reading of Oh, the Places You’ll Go was outstanding, the room was captivated for sure.

We visited Tata and Cedo’s house for lunch on Saturday. Uncle Nader cuddled with Luke during the precious post-nap moments.
We had New York friends for dinner!! EJ, Tracy, and Emma were in Baltimore for the weekend and were kind enough to swing by for dinner. It was a wonderful time of fellowship and conversation.
A few new and exciting things for Lukealicious:
1. He is now old enough to face the world in the Baby Bjorn. No more facing mommy and daddy and chest nuzzling.
2. The Pod Chair. A new love for the little guy.
There is still more weekend fun to be had, lunch and Lindy and Papa Joe’s house. I hope you all are having as much fun as we are having this weekend.
Love from the Chesapeake Bay to our family and friends near and far!
