Around Here ...


We have a 2-month-old who has discovered her hands.


My days are filled with morning-naptime coffee-drinking and blog checking ...


... followed closely by frantic naptime house-cleaning.


There is lots of smiley play time.


For me, playtime is late in the day in the kitchen.


Or outside, watching Spring's welcome approach.

Life with a newborn seems crazy but in a way I miss the simplicity of quiet naptimes and hunkering down at home. Enjoy it. Mine are 13, 10 and 4 and now we are on the run all the time. Your little one is adorable.

I agree.....naptime is a great time to frantically clean the house. Just this morning when my 3 1/2 mo. old Cole was napping I managed to Swiffer some floors, do some dusting, declutter, make the bed and clean the fan blades in the Master. Yay! Now I'm nursing and catching up on reading blogs. ;)

I love how simple life is at this age, don't you? (not to be confused with not busy...ha!)

Take care,
Gail

She is too cute and I love her name! Frantic house cleaning cracked me up...when I had a newborn I pretty much slept when he did. (partly because he partied like a rock star all night!)4 kids later and I just started trying to clean the house again! ha! Enjoy your beautiful babe! -Ann

Elliot is lovely! I know what you mean about 'frantic' house cleaning! I have half finished projects scattered all over the house! BUT, life is very sweet and simple. Have a happy weekend:)

this is such a beautiful time. I didn't really realize it when they were this little (because you're so tired), but it's a special, sacred time. What gorgeous pictures! And Elliott is a doll (Elliot?)
