Eric left on a last minute business trip last Sunday, leaving just Luca and myself for 5 days and nights. The lengths I go to to entertain that girl are nothing short of hilarious, but 5 days straight of just mom trying to keep a teething 9 month old happy gets to be a bit...old. Needless to say, we spent a lot of time outside! I find I get some of the most beautiful pictures of Luca when I'm not trying too hard. So here are a few gems I took one afternoon, whilst trying to keep my daughter from losing it.
