four months.

This baby right here?


As in you feed her, burp her, change her, snuggle her, lay her down in her bed, walk away AND SHE FALLS ASLEEP ON HER OWN.


Officially the highlight of the week.

I would say rolling over was a pretty big highlight but she needs to knock it off with this developmental stuff. STAY LITTLE BABY!

reading to vivi.

Somebody asked me if this photo was staged.


This photo is what happens almost every day when Addie gets home from school. Vivi scoots as close to Addie as she can and stays there until Addie is done reading to her.

My heart is very full of very happy stuff.

My brain is behaving very well.

Which in turn makes my eyes a little misty with some wet stuff.




  1. How adorable! I love that picture and Vivi’ s chunky little legs!

  2. I’m so glad to hear it! The baby and the brain, I mean.

  3. Napping and beautiful sister time? Definitely a win for this Monday morning!!

  4. Love love love it!

  5. Woohoo! The best news I’ve heard in quite some time! (The napping and the brain thing – both equally important.)

  6. this makes my soul sing.

  7. Victory! And literacy! It’s a double win.

  8. I concur with Ami.

    Also, I love you all.

  9. Aww..I love watching memories made like that. And baby naps kick butt too!

  10. Yay for beautiful napping babies and brains that behave!

  11. Yay for everything in this post. Vivi and Addie are two very lucky girls to have eachother. Baby naps ROCK!!!! Im so happy to hear about your brain behaving. Mine has been for a little while too! It feels good.

  12. This post gives me watery eyes. 🙂

  13. I love it!!

  14. Awwww I miss your faces! And it’s true – Addie really does go straight to her sister when she gets home – even if Canadian guests are holding a bag of Kit Kats and Kinder Eggs! There’s some serious love in the moosh house! 🙂

  15. There is is nothing – NOTHING – like watching one of your kids read to the other one. My son will actually pull out a book and seek out his sister if he knows my wife and I cannot read to him for some reason.

  16. Man, I wish I napped twice a day. That sounds lovely.

  17. that is a beautiful thing.

    and I am so happy for you.

  18. I love napping, my children napping that is. I somehow cannot nap. I wish my preschooler still did it. It’s a glorious time. =)

  19. That picture is so awesome it made me get something in my eye…

  20. oh so very lovely….dang, the eye stuff must be contagious…

  21. Very happy stuff!

  22. that is just full of awesomeness! so happy to read you are feeling good & that picture of the gals reading is priceless!

  23. Yea! Love to you and your sweet babes
