“A portrait of my children once a week, every week, in 2015.”

Mother’s Day weekend. I am a lucky one. I’m working on writing my annual Mother’s Day letter to my girls. But for now, sleepppp (emotions and all the feelings and words to express must wait! This Mama is pooped).

Lucy’s latest favorite phrase: “I’M MAD OF YOU!” (with a joking smile and pointed finger).

Georgie celebrated her 4-week milestone and is opening up those eyes more and more. Her cries is still loud & piercing, but she’s using it less and less. She’s content to lay under her play gym mobile on her own now, but is happiest wrapped close to Mama’s chest. Oh, we love her so.

“A portrait of my children once a week, every week, in 2015.”

GS… 3 weeks old this week. Afternoons had been very rough and unpredictable. Lots of unconsolable fussing from 3pm or so into the evening. I’m a proud Mama to say I recognized what might be causing it (fast milk flow and gulping) and changed a few things that really seem to be helping. Pumping a little before I feed so it doesn’t overwhelm, upright nursing positions and lots of burps. You’re so much happier for it!

Lu… she holds her hands out to us at the dinner table to “say the Amen.” Her version goes something like… “Dear… Mama. Thank you for God. Thank you for breakfast. Ohhh – Dinner. Thank you for Jason. We love you so much. AMENNNNN. I-LOVE-YOU!”

Georgia: tho she be little, she be LOUD. We’re getting to know each other. Day by day. Staying close to home and embracing our slow days.

Lucy: we took a walk by the beach and she saw a man roller blading: “Ohhh! He’s riding skate boots!”

Georgia: toots and burps like an old man, it’s hilarious.

Lucy: we went to a neighbors house for a BBQ and she said to her fellow 2-year-old hostess: “Oh hi Gracie. Thank you for having me over.”

“Portraits of my children once a week, every week, in 2015.”

Georgia Scout, 4/10/15 @ 3:20AM. 8 lbs, 3 oz and 20 in.

I’m behind on 52 posts, for very good reason. This week we welcomed Georgia Scout into our family, home, hearts. To say we’re in awe is the largest understatement. Just as everyone with a second child has said, there is so much more love to open up and give. Our house is filled with love, joy, newborn shrills (the lungs on this girl!) and diapers, so many diapers.

Lucy is smitten in her new role as Big Sister and while we’re dealing with lots of toddler “tanti’s” the moments with her sister are gentle and heart melting in the best kind of way. The second time she visited us in the hospital she told me “Mama, you have to share your baby sister.”
