Elin at the Window



Elin loves playing in the sun room and she especially loves looking out the big picture window. As soon as she could pull herself to a stand, she was standing on her tiptoes and gazing out the window. She is always talking and pointing at the birds in the trees out the window and she also likes to look out at the golfers on the course behind our house.


Everyday after work, I pick her up from my mom’s house and when we get home, the first thing we do is let the dogs out of their crate and take them outside. In the warmer weather, Elin loves to come outside with me, but during the winter months she has to stay inside and she stands at the back window the whole time. She smiles and waves and most recently, she stands there and blows kisses the whole time I am outside. I think it’s the sweetest thing and I don’t want to forget the memory of her standing there. She is always so happy and all smiles the whole time. I can hear her in the there chanting “hi, hi, hi” over and over.


Not only do I love the fact that I know where she is and she not getting into mischief, but I think it’s just so very sweet. Pretty soon it will be warm enough for her to come out with me and she will just love that.


It may just be a little moment of our day, but it’s something that brings a smile to my face every time. I know that someday probably all too soon she will no longer find it exciting to watch me take the dogs out and I won’t see her cheerful face in the window.

  16. Ahh! Look at how much taller she is in the picture progression too. Loves seeing things like that. I bet Aria would love some lower windows. She just learned how to climb into the gliding chair and loves to look out the window to the front yard. She usually starts shouting dada too, like okay dad you can come home now! Love this post =)

  17. LOVE how you have these pictures of her as she gets older! the first one is so precious- her little tip toes trying to reach to look out
