I decided this was going to be an ongoing series of reflections.   As our new life evolves and changes, so does my outlook on it. Here are my thoughts lately:

Trying to keep two little beings satisfied for twelve hours is so hard it is overwhelming at times.  How does one be all things to all people?

It is a rare day for me to leave the house before 11am….
even though I am often awake by 6 or 7.  Feeding everyone breakfast (Bea twice), taking care of everyone’s potty habits, walk/run/snack/shower, dressing the three of us—whew!  Most days it’s easier just to embrace it and stay home.

 

A few weekends before Bea came, I pulled out all of the baby clothes, washed and sorted them, and hung up the NB, 0-3, and 3-6 months clothes.  I thought surely that would buy me until November or at least the fall.  WRONG.  Last night I pulled out 6-9 month clothes which are on the horizon shortly due to a long, chunky baby.  I mean, look at her:

 

Speaking of that baby, she is quite the roller these days.  You put her down on her back and she instantly flips to her stomach and starts scooting around.  This is baffling to me as MG didn’t roll from back to stomach until the day after she turned 6 months old.  Over-achiever?

 

And finally, here are the things I’ve been obsessing over lately: shopping for fall clothes for the girls, Peter Pan collars, ruffle pants (going to try my hand at those soon), coordinating outfits for the girls,

peacock blue, the new John Mayer cd (I love how his new CDs always drop in the fall.  Great for finding a new fall anthem), bento lunches (preschool is just around the corner), century old farm houses, and finally tribal print.  Can you tell most of these have to do with clothes?  I just love new clothes for the fall…

More to come…

    I agree the hour of 11 is hard to get out before. I’ve had to embrace it. I too am lately obsessed with farm houses but still NOT John Mayer. Ok 3×5 is still the best song I will give that to you 🙂

      THE best. Farm houses + 3×5 together at the same time would be too much for me to even handle.
