M Bedtime

April 20, 2019 | We drove home from H-Easter late, as you fell asleep in your car seat. While youโ€™d had a decent afternoon nap, the day had been full of activity and you were EXHAUSTED.

We pulled in the garage, and I gently lifted you from the car. You watched as I made a 7 Oz bottle at the kitchen sink, and we went upstairs to your room. I decided you were so tired Iโ€™d leave you in the onesie and zip your sleep sack for the night. 

As soon as the owl nightlight/sound machine was on, a star pattern glowed on the ceiling; a clear sign E had touched the settings… 

We rocked as your chubby finger pointed at the stars, quietly drinking the bottle. In the light I could see your heavy eyelids, but curiosity always wins.  The bottle ran empty, and I gave you the lamb-pacey, your favorite for bedtime. Usually I can lay you right in the crib wide awake, but this night I rocked you mostly to sleep. I donโ€™t know how many more times this will happen, so I reveled in each detail. Your sweet sleeping face and tiny hands holding that lambs tag…love you my girl M.

M <3 Rug

January 19, 2019 | When you finally replace a 10+ year old rug in your house, and it really brings out the blue in baby’s eyes… ๐Ÿ™‚ Plus E pushing M around in the walker is just something I never want to forget!

Mommy Monday

December 10, 2018 | Paw Patrol advent calendar continues, M gets more expressive, and we continue enjoying the open-gym with both of these crazy sisters… ๐Ÿ™‚ It may be a lot of work, but those moments they look at one another with such adoration make my heart burst!

Plus some iphone images from the day…

Snow Day!

November 25, 2018 | It’s hard to believe the day before we were enjoying the outdoors at the lake, and then Sunday arrives with TONS OF SNOW. First, images of M in E’s old jammies…just because. Again, E is a big fan and tried to “help” Dad shovel a bit. It was so deep she had a hard time getting up when she fell, while I laughed watching at the front door. Someone had to stay indoors with the baby, right? ha!
