“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.”

02 / keeping it real simple with a $2 easter egg dying kit…

03 / different pregnancy, same cravings…

04 / this girl was SO excited to see the easter bunny had visited our yard!

05 / family tradition… charcuterie & easter *pepper* bread.

06 / as a kid, the easter bunny always placed eggs in little nests for jason.

07 / easy collection when you’re only hunting against yourself.

A photo & something she’s said, once a week, every week in 2015.

When we’re having a good, fun day (or she gets ice cream) she’ll turn to me and say “Mama, I’m so happy.”

(those happen to be homemade greek yogurt pops with blueberries that she helped make, they don’t evoke QUITE the same reaction as the real deal but pretty dang close!)

A photo & something she’s said, once a week, every week in 2015.

There’s this tree in the backyard that she loves to pretend is a car and drive away to Mexico in. She uses a piece of chalk as her car keys. Jason came into the kitchen trying to hide chuckles, his conversation with Lucy:

“Oh. I lost my key, dammit.”

Jason: What?

“I lost my key. Dammit.”
