there but for the grace of you go i

my tiny boy.  inky, midnight eyes.  downy ginger (red? how did he come out red?) hair.  ten tiny fingers, ten tiny toes.  perfectly kissable lips.

the transition from mama-of-one to mama-of-two has been easier than i anticipated.  throughout my pregnancy i wondered if i would love baby number two as much as i love baby number one.  how can anyone love two creatures with such ferocity?  can one heart possibly contain that much emotion?  yes, it is indeed possible.  in an instant i felt that my heart not only expanded to contain the enormous love for my newborn boy, but immediately felt completed and made whole by his arrival.

he is a joy.

the laundry can wait

the mountain of laundry will continue to grow.  we’ve got more important things to do…

baby wearing

chalk drawing


piggy nibbling

tomato growing

playground climbing

maybe i’ll tackle the chores when we’re done with our popsicle eating, flower growing, sun soaking, sprinkler running, adventure going, treasure hunting, and hammock swinging.
