7 pounds 3 oz
19 1/2 inches of pure sweetness

so many thoughts and feelings experienced over the last few weeks- everything is such a blur right now.  
but we are so happy, and we are so in love and there are four of us.

40 weeks 6 days

mildly shocked to report that two year olds have little to no respect for women who are tremendously pregnant.

"up mama, up" is demanded approximately 1,000% more with each passing hour.

"and i'd choose you; 
in a hundred lifetimes, 
in a hundred worlds, 
in any version of reality, 
i'd find you and i'd choose you." 
- the chaos of stars

happy three years of marriage, MWM.
you are the very best and i will always be left wondering how i got you.

lucky to have had these girls as roommates in australia-- who became my best of friends.
lucky that when you tell them, "i'm pregnant again" they say "ok, we will come to you!".
lucky to have spent four blissful days laughing, laying, and loving on each others babies.
lucky to have had them clean my house from top to bottom, with wide smiles saying, "now you are all ready for your new baby!" (as i dropped one off at the airport)

luckiest by far- when we are all together.

sometimes i feel like giving birth is no big deal.  just a normal thing that every mother has done.  it doesn't need to be thought about too much because our bodies were made for it.  they will just take over.

other times it feels like a looming, life-changing event that my bags aren't even packed for.  it could happen at any time in the next two weeks.  and in the meantime, i'm over here just trying to figure out what to make for dinner.

probably a quesadilla.

how two works

to be able to say, "he's two" is jarring when it falls upon my own ears.  but he is so very, very two.

true to the rumor, two year olds bring madness and delight wherever they go.  they are enchanting angels sprinkling fairy dust and filling your heart to the brim one moment and quickly they morph into gremlins who, without question, need to eat all 10 popsicles at one time before their entire world implodes.

goodness, how we love ours.
