As the silent snow falls.


I love the snow.
But as soon as it arrives, I am just as quickly over it.
I start to long for my sunshine and flowers
trees with leaves
and smells of fresh cut grass.

But every once in a while
when stuck in the dreary dead of winter
when spring seems so far away and all hope feels lost...

...it still manages to take my breath away.

Off to bed.

Little boys should never be sent to bed...

Oh, happy day.

After being down in the dumps for the last few weeks about all the crap life decides to dish out all at once, I woke up today and was determined to make today better.
It started with a good hair day. Then feeling awesome in my clothes with my rockin baby belly.


I then left the house and went to meet my midwife for the first time who, by the way, completely ROCKS. We were totally speaking the same language compared to my previous doctor, and I just left sighing in relief! Now I'm excited about the upcoming birth rather than nervous/anxious about getting "tricked" into a C-section again. Them docs can be sneaky if they really want to be!

Can you believe I'm measuring 4 WEEKS ahead?!!
Don't answer that

And as tradition stands, I went straight to Babies R Us afterwards and got some cute for Baby A's growing wardrobe! FYI, the baby swimsuits are out! Be still my heart.. and wallet!

I have been going back and forth on bedding for Little A ever since I found out she was a she. Since she'll be sharing a room with her brother, it was only fair that he not be overloaded with PINK GALOREEEEE, and so I've been in search for something cute, modern, and that would fit his room as is. I debated for hours it seemed but nothing really stood out. I ended up at a different store and by luck/chance/fate, THERE IT WAS. And with the price tag on the thing, it was pratically BEGGING to be brought home. I can't wait to get everything set up so I can show it all off!


 
I love the little things that remind you that life will be okay, no matter what. Today has blessed me with a fistful of little things to get me by.

A constant reminder of what's in store.

Best Face Photo of 2010

They're doing a contest over at I Heart Faces and they are calling for the best faces of 2010.

There are SO many faces that I can think of, but one particular face stands out in my mind.


My sweet little Elliott last summer after enjoying his first fudgesicle of the season!

This photo of his sticky face ALWAYS brings a smile to mine!
