About Me

My photo
I'm a hand-holding, swing-pushing, story-telling Mama with a creative streak and a nurturing spirit. I like growing food and flowers (and people, hehe), sewing clothes and quilts, cooking and eating and running, a long, tight hug and the color yellow. I love date nights at home, spontaneous trips to the bookstore and hearing my babies laugh. I am indecisive, exaggerrative and I overuse parentheses. I am reflective and sentimental and quick to laugh. I think I still picture myself as a 22-year old, yet every year my life gets more fulfilling. I am still figuring out exactly who I am. :)

A Gift

Besides Lucy Girl herself, the second best gift her presence in our family has given us is the friendship of Claire and Alex.

Sure, sometimes they argue, don't share their toys and (overheard for the very first time a few days ago), excalim "Alex, stop LOOKING at me!!" But more and more they are becoming best friends.

When I'm busy with Lucy, either changing diapers or feeding her or trying to get rid of her pesky hiccups (that bother her at least once a day), they play. They laugh. They sing. They squeal. They read. They color. They pretend. They make up beds in the kitchen that I step over as I cook dinner. They talk on their cell phones.

And most importantly...they do these things together.

And when I catch glimpses of these happy times, I'm hopeful that they will be as good friends as my siblings and I are.

I wonder what memories they will have of their childhoods (which movie will they be able to quote nearly word-for-word...Mighty Ducks, anyone?) :)

And I am so happy. :)

She's All Smiles

Lucy Girl, just grinning at her crazy camera-wielding Mama at just the right moment. :)

One month

One month since Lucy Girl joined our family

One month since I became Mama to three

One month since my heart has been overflowing with joy. :)

making mama's heart happy

blink and he's two :)

My little teeny baby boy has grown, so fast, into a big, chunky, lovable, huggable, sweet, two-year-old, whose two favorite words (or at least most spoken) happen to be "beebee" (baby) and "NO!" (always exclaimed and usually accompanied with the throwing of some object). :)

How I love him so. :)
Gotta have balloons!
