Maggie made a train!


Maggie put on her new tie dye shirt, had me put her hair up, looked in the mirror and said, “I like me”.


I caught them crafting together!  It lasted about a minute 🙂

We’ve been taking full advantage of our little porch lately.

a bit of magic

Motherhood, I have found, is a rather constant swing from highs to lows and back again.  In the middle of messes, frustrations, exhaustion, etc., there are moments of pure joy.  Today was no exception.  I wasn’t feeling very well this afternoon, and was trying to lay down to rest after helping Maggie with finger-painting (!).


Maggie very sweetly was taking care of her baby next to me on the couch and then the magic happened….

She snuggled up next to me, and fell asleep.  The only sounds were our “sleep music” on my phone and the fan.  While laying with my big  baby girl, I could feel my new baby girl wiggle and dance inside.  Such a surreal, and well, magical moment.
