Filling my heart with my little golden babies and all their goodness.
My dearest Adler. Just when I think I couldn't love you any more than I do, you flash those wrist rolls and squeeze those soft bunny ears to sooth your teething rage. You melt my mama heart at least 10 times a day. I can't really remember life before you, and I don't really want to. You are the sweetest little guy with your toothy grin and scrunched up nose, and I am so glad you are ours.
^ As my workload gradually decreases the closer we get to summer, so do my hours. Enjoying a little bit of 'me time' when the baby naps usually includes: hot brew, cozy blankets with the fan on + windows open, and New Girl on Netflix.
^ This boy and his Bunny are inseparable. We typically leave it in his crib, but sometimes he'll bring him out after his afternoon nap. As soon as we put him in bed he grabs Bunny and snuggles him to his face. It is seriously the cutest thing. Logan named the bunny (which she picked him out when I was pregnant for her baby brother) "Abraham Bunny." But for now, we just call him Bunny.
Pennsylvania is so pretty this time of year. Little clusters of color among the fresh bright green that each year, seem to appear over night, always catch my eye. Spring often feels like an eternity waiting for it's arrival, and then once it's here; it's passes by at rapid speed. I myself have been working towards being more mindful this spring, and in doing so, to instill in Logan an appreciation of the beauty found in each season. We live in a region where we get to live through all four seasons and each season is marked by different beauty. Through the longest and darkest of winters; my wish if for her to forever feel an appreciation. Each year as my girl grows I seek out ways to preserve her beauty, strength, and confidence. And each time, I am lead by nature. From a single snowflake that lands on the tip of her nose as she walks to her car after a night class, to the hot summer sun beating down on her legs as she lays out with a new book-- to always know that much like people, nature comes in many ways for us to enjoy.
