Geneva has been a really good sport about all of this yardwork. Even in the stifling heat she will sit in her bouncy seat and watch the cat, or lay in her playpen and wave her arms around at the sky while we work on one project or another. I'm looking forward to cooler days when she can really enjoy, not just tolerate, the outdoors. Things are starting to ripen in the garden, and one of my favorite fantasies while I was pregnant was imagining myself picking vegetables with Geneva. Some dreams do come true, I guess! It's nice to know life works like that sometimes.
Anyway, here's a look at our rapidly transforming yard-- and daughter!

Our growing girl
I had to include this one, not because it's the cutest picture ever but because this face is so HER. She makes this serious expression when she's deciding whether to laugh or cry.
