I find that the longer I go without blogging, the harder it is. A week and a few days feels too long to me–I start to feel uninspired to post. The days start to roll together and the things I think about writing become more trivial. They probably are trivial in the grand scheme of things, but seeing as I enjoy blogging, I would like to remain somewhat consistent about posting here–even with a new babe, less time, and pretty average days at best.
Three weeks old on Monday. How quickly the time does fly. The adjustment to this addition to our family has been much easier and much quicker than the first time around. I don’t know if she is an easy baby or just an easier one than the first, but her seemingly calm presence really is the perfect addition to our household (and probably why this second transition feels so much easier than the first time!).
We are so fortunate to belong to a really fantastic mama group. The past two weeks we have been showered in the most incredible home cooked meals from the other mamas in the group. I do enjoy cooking (most of the time), so while I am itching to get back in the kitchen, it has been nice to focus the extra time that it would have taken to make dinner on my sweet girls and our family.
1. Leftover enchiladas with an egg for breakfast, ahhhmazing–try it!
2. More kisses.
3. A little bit of knitting and looking up bread recipes (still haven’t found time for that one though!)
4. First pomegranate of the season.
5. Getting the hang of the wrap, when Lucy was this age we used the sling exclusively, but I am enjoying learning a new way of babywearing. Also, a hat I knitted up in the hospital while I was in labor (and finished the day after she was born. Info on the baby bonnet, here.
6-9. Picnics. My favorite way to spend the weekend!
