Garden

I was holding Annika on Sunday while weeding for a while. When I got tired, I sat her down on the sidewalk and she started pawing at the weeds & trying to get them out too.

Annika loves having plants in her mouth. She just sucks on the them and I only give her herbs.

She is particularly taken with my Fred Boutin lavender. I can't blame her, it is my favorite one too.

Dirty little baby hands. ahhhh.... I love watching my kids dig in the dirt, especially for the first few times when they are just discovering it. And maybe not so much when they are intent on moving my garden bed into their play area, one toy dumptruck at a time, like Saben last summer.

Sweet girl! Don't you have a gazillion pounds of lamb's ear too? I just planted some baby heirloom foxgloves... also good for slowing your kids down. :)

You are such a good mom. I was (er, am) such a clean freak. That adorable white sweater, that would drive me crazy. I wish I was laid back. (I know that sounds like a backwords compliment, but it isn't, I swear)
