Loving summer in Chicago

The Great Sosini has been taking full advantage of summer even though rain was been overly plentiful in 2010. We play outside every chance we get! Sonia has always seemed to really love nature; I could tell as early as last July that she perked up when I would take her outside to explore the world beyond the 4 walls of our house. On Friday, Sosi and Sara had a great time at the pool:

Future dancer?


Belly hanging out of a swimsuit: cute on a baby, unacceptable for an adult.


There's something "Charlie's Angels" about this picture....


On Saturday, Andrew's law firm had their summer outing at the Brookfield Zoo. I failed to take any pictures because I was too busy having fun! Sonia really loved the butterfly garden, and she seemed to be so inspired by the little flutterers that took a few steps on her own. Even though the heat and humidity did their best to make the day uncomfortable, we still had a great time. I'd like to give a shout out to Andrew's co-worker and reader of this blog, Katie. Holla! Katie, if by some chance you get your hands on the picture that bossman's wife took of Andrew, Sosi, and me, please pass it along and I'll be eternally grateful. Thanks for planning such a fantastic summer outing-- you and the rest of the social committee always do a terrific job.

Today (on Sunday), Sonia was pretty sleepy (she took a 2 hour nap this morning, which is practically unheard of for our little goofball!) and it rained for a few hours, so we stayed in for a lot of the day. But after dinner (Andrew smoked a corned beef brisket-- Sonia loved it), the outdoors was calling, so Andrew and I took Sosinini on a wagon ride around the neighborhood. She loves her wagon!

We have a fun & busy week ahead (which includes the start of swimming lessons!!).... Hopefully, Sonia will love swimming lessons as much as I suspect she will!

I love the dancer pic. It looks like she is doing her beginning stretches. :) Yay for walking! Well, yay for her 'watch out' for you. ;)

Love the Charlie's Angels! Now they just need a third...

Ha! They totally do have a third Charlie's Angel (little Samantha), but she couldn't make it that day, unfortunately. They're the 3 S's!

That suit is ridiculous! Only Sonia could pull it off. I think I'm going to start calling Sonia "Farrah".
