a couple of weeks ago, eleanor and i had a little mommy daughter date together. we got our nails painted at the nail salon and shared a few rice krispy treats at treat house on the upper west side. that place is pretty cool inside. it’s like a tree house! ;)
it’s not often that it happens, but i’m trying to find more opportunities to spend one on one time with just eleanor or just samson, rather than always with both. at 16 months apart, they do so well together throughout the day and i really do enjoy our time as the three of us around new york city. but our conversations are as just eleanor and mama alone can be so special and important, and our play time as just samson and mama alone is also just as special and important. so i’m trying to carve out more opportunities for these sorts of interactions. i am a broken record through and through, but goodness do i love being their mama.
these photos were taken with the Canon EOS 6D Digital SLR, which we use for both full HD video and stills. eleanor’s pompom hat is actually my pompom hat (haha) an oldie from anthropologie a few years ago. her sweater (under layer) and polka dot jeans are both from polarn o. pyret.
^^^eleanor’s fancy blue manicure. she chose her favorite color, “dark blue” for her nails. the woman at the nail salon painted a cute little flower on her ring finger, too. i can’t quite get into all the nail art stuff trending these days but that little flower is kind of the cutest thing i ever did see. also, those rice krispy treats are pretty awesome. usually pretty treats don’t taste too yummy, but these are different. these are good.^^^
^^^decisions, decisions! (also, dressing herself these days and we are loving it! the socks with the rain clogs and mama’s oversized pompom hat especially. ;)^^^
^^^i wanna try the m&m one next time. cause look at it!^^^
^^^eleanor, this was so much fun. thanks for a great mommy daughter date. i love you! I LOVE YOU!^^^
