Pie and Tired.


Look at the nymph that graces my couch! Ohhhh am I ever lucky! She's better than blueberry pie, with the light that falls into the folds of her skin in the evening. I can't stop looking, waiting for her to suddenly vanish as if she's too beautiful to hold her place in the world. But she doesn't vanish. In fact, I wake up with her next to me in the night and it's so cozy I forget that I'm a mother of more than just her squishiness. She's all there is right now. And I am not motivated for that to change very quickly.

That's it for tonight. 'Cause Mama is tiiiired.

p.s. swaddling blanket found here: adenandanais

She is so precious! My grammy taught me that we are never lucky but BLESSED! So there you are! Blessed as ever! And so is Matilda to have you for her mommy!

Ummmm....I didn't know perfection could keep getting MORE perfect...but sweet Tildy has obviously proven me wrong with each picture of her that I see!!!! I could look at her pictures ALL day!!!!! Get some rest when you can in between catching your breath over your beautiful new babe!!!! xoxo

I'm not sure how I started following your blog... I love it - your writing, your photography, your love for your kids. Your Matilda is a beautiful baby. I am expecting my fourth in 2 weeks - a little girl (I'll have two and two). I've got a funny question for you - where did you find the swaddling blanket pictured here? I'm dying to find something big enough and thin enough to swaddle my newborn. Thanks.

Ditto Jana's question about the swaddling blanket. I wondered the exact same thing! Baby #5 is coming to our house sometime in late August or early Sept.

She sure is yummy! I love her squishiness :)

Oh- she is so beautiful :) She looks like Grace! We have been a bit sick here lately, but doing way better. I would love to have your girls over to play & give you some one on one time with Tildy. I want to meet her sometime too & bring you guys dinner :)
