What's 12 Kilograms?

Skip the hand weights and carry a toddler around. 

That's my advice for crazy good arm muscles. Said muscles I noticed last night and went, "huh!'" I don't mind carrying her (sans stroller of course), though she is quite capable of walking on her own for quite a ways, but more often then not she moves to stand in front of me and make me stop, throws her hands up in the hair and grins at me.

How can I say no to that grin? Especially when that grin is followed by snuggling into me with her head on my shoulder. I just soak up her smell and hold her tight, knowing all is well.

Small things.

On a final note… this is my 500th post!

Yep, 500 is pretty darn amazing - congratulations! And I love your daughter's little Peruvian sweater.

The only problem is...they keep getting heavier and they still want to be carried! I guess that means do it while you can!

500! What a milestone! Looking forward to the next 500...
