Tomorrow Charlie is one month old. I can't stand it. I can't believe how fast this is going. I'm doing a terrible job of taking pictures, especially of his first visitors. Adding this third kid has been different. We're definitely staying IN more. My house is torn up most of the time. The older kids have figured out they can get away with more lately. I'm so not on top of my game. I have to remind myself that it won't always be like this. I won't be stuck breastfeeding, I won't be changing diapers constantly, I'll have more time to shower and get dressed... someday. I will say, however, that I am loving each day. Living simple, staying in, saying "no" to events, really looking at each of the kids. Studying their faces, asking questions, snuggling, staying in pj's, trying to savor each moment. With Charlie changing so fast, I'm reminded of how quickly this season will pass. I am SO thankful for Southern California's beautiful weather. If we didn't have our front yard to escape to for running, drawing hopscotch and train tracks, playing catch... I think I'd go crazy. I am also thankful for so many friends that have been bringing us meals. Delicious meals. Fancy and creative and beautiful. We have felt so loved. Here are some pics from the last few weeks.
Wallace & Skyler walking out to perform the end of year show at Nurture. I've never heard Wally belt out a song like he did for "Farmer and the Dell."
