|The sleepy-pout. I die.|
|Love when she's completely and overwhelmingly relaxed.|
|Post-Sunday school. She's the female version of the collective Joshua and Caleb, spying out the promised land.|
|She loves her tubby time!|
|We've finally starting making it to the 9am church service on time, and color coordinated at that!|
Oh, and did I mention I just had a baby six weeks ago? I keep forgetting that. Keep forgetting that if this was an "outside the home" job, I'd still be on maternity leave. Keep forgetting that I'm supposed to take it easy. Keep forgetting that the reason my infant likes to be held all the time is because she's just that - an infant. Keep forgetting that my body isn't entirely back to normal and that I'm awash in a strange mixture of hormones. That the world really isn't that terrible and if I just tread water through this fresh burst of tears a happiness wave will soon follow.
|So thankful that our friends Nick and Lindsey were in town while Jon was gone. They brought me coffees, made me dinner, watched my boys, and made the kids super-cool super capes!|
|When we get together, that's 7 Coastie kids under the age of 5. It's REALLY, REALLY fun. Just kidding.|
|Super Jude and his super smile... and Super Jack getting his white socks super dirty.|
|We've said goodbye to newborn diapers and clothes earlier this month. Mommy's having a hard time packing everything up. :(|
|Notice Jude purposely trying to NOT be photographed.|
It was a wonderful summer, a summer full of changes. And this new season is looking to be quite full of promise as well. I'm sure there will be some tough days, some days where it's all I can do to tread water. And likewise we'll have days of smooth sailing where we all ride the happiness wave. Like any good book, we can race through the bad parts and take in the good chapters over and over again. We'll read on, keep turning pages, and of course, never, ever sneak a peek at the last page.
