Have A Lovely Day

We are busy packing and moving to our new place.

Nine Months

This is where she likes to be these days.
I feel a tug on my legs
and I look down to her sweet little face.

Eyes always sparkling.


It is too fast
this thing called life.

See What I Mean?

She loves water!

I took this shot after I got her clothes off. 
She went in fully clothed to take a shower with her sis!

Water Baby

Emily is my little water baby. 
She loves to climb into the shower 
or onto the dishwasher...
anywhere she can find water to play in!

Helping Hands

Grace: "Mama, can I pleeeeease use your broom to sweep the floor?"
Mama: "Of course you can! I would love it."
sweep, sweep, sweep

Grace: "I need to pause."
run, run, run
Grace: "Emily can use my broom to help."

We miss you!

Delicious? Yep, and the food is good too!

I am using my beloved Microplane to make quick, yummy baby food.

Some of Em's favorites are:
broccoli and apple
carrot and apple
carrot and banana

What foods are/were your baby's favs?
Is prepping baby food different for you now?

There is nothing worth sharing like the love that let us share our name. 
   -The Avett Brothers

I love you sugar.

Nine years ago I took your name.
Today I take your hand.
Tomorrow the best is yet to come.

From My Window...

I see fuschia fairies twirling and dancing in the fog...

I feel the nervousness of baby Phoebes entering the world
while I contemplate my own little fledgling....

and then I hear her angelic hymns while she creates
and I know that everything is going to be alright.

First Tooth!

Emily got her first tooth today! Bottom, right.

I know Em looks a bit shocked in the photo above. 
She must have been surprised to receive such a prestigious honor. 

Grace: "Here Emily. These are your Nobel Prizes (aka Pup Pup and Captain Blue Bear.) 
Wilbur is my Nobel Prize."

I have no doubt that these girls are going to do amazing things!
