• so excited to see my favorite baby clothes in use again
  • thinking, as I always do when I have a little baby, a lot about my own mortality and how I want to live this one life (and trying not to dwell on morbid thoughts!)
  • struggling to find harmony between the sometimes contradictory ideas of creating a home that is developmentally appropriate for all of my children, and, at the same time, not becoming too child-centered


  • thinking about what a good mama my sister will make someday
  • enjoying the reconnection to old family friends
  • one of those perfect sister moments: bee and bunny laughing so hard at one another that bunny had tears running down her face
