• feeling so much wonder as my baby begins to be interested in so many new things (no, this photo isn’t staged!)
  • looking at her face and seeing the face of a “big” baby rather than a newborn
  • still not really believing that I am the mother of three children!


  • loving the (continued, ever-present) sisterly love
  • having ups and downs – as a mama, as a wife, as a person of my own
  • feeling already tired of the brief amount of summer that we’ve had, looking forward to autumn
