A Day in Our World

My how time is flying by. It's hard to believe that our little bundle is already 1/2 a month old. It doesn't seem possible. She's changing so much everyday.

Life is great, we're still adjusting to baby time & a slightly jealous toddler, but overall we couldn't ask for anything better.

And although she's acting out a bit more, Anna really does love her little sister and trys very hard to be so helpful. Anna thinks the baby needs a diaper change every 10 minutes, attempts to calm her when she's crying by telling her to "listen, shhhh", always wants to hold her or her hands, gives lots of kisses, and even thinks she can nurse the little one.

Anna's had an ear infection and cold this week, so along with being cooped up in the house because of the weather, we're trying to stay away from other people so we don't swap germs. But a mom can only take so much of being tied into the house, so yesterday we spent a little while out on the back patio in the sunshine with some sidewalk chalk.

It was miss Grace's first time out in the sunshine and she just slept. It was such hard work laying in her little chair after about 5 minutes she decided she was starving & had to come in the house and have a snack. ;)

It wouldn't be a day in the sun, if Anna wasn't playing with trucks and tractors. And of course that means running over the chalk with the trucks.

I'm really looking forward to this weekend and hoping that the weather isn't as stormy as they are predicting, although we could really use the rain. I could really use a little time to get out and shoot things, I've got the creative/artsy juices running through my veins again (oh, so glad for that!). So until the next post...
