Baby and I.
My friend Kate snapped these of me and my baby. Thanks Kate!
It's a different feel now... being done with the baby thing and moving onto raising the ones I have. It's beautiful to see them all as a whole. As four girls, bouncing around together. Creating relationships, building trust, laughing together, getting in trouble together. It's art, it's mayhem... it's everything I ever wanted.
Evidence of my girls is everywhere. On the walls, rugs, beds, counters, bookshelves. They have their own special spots around our house where they store their precious little toys and notebooks and pieces of string. They are starting to create something that resembles individuality. As much as they can have in a little house with all these bodies.
They fight for independence. Especially Lillie and Tada. They want to do everything themselves. They fight and play together now. Tadi watches Lillie intently and tries so hard to communicate with her. Lillie doesn't mind and completely understands her and what she needs and wants. It's nice to see.
I am starting to turn into that annoying person in the supermarket that asks how old your newborn is, what her name is, and makes a few ridiculous sounds in a high-pitched voice. My youngest is a toddler and having my own bundle is only a memory now. So looking forward to the future with my girls.
