4 months!

Man, this little lady just gets cuter & cuter. Sleep is settling, barf is waning, big sister Violet doesn’t want to send her back… I can’t ask for anything more than that. I took this picture with my phone today because it was all I could reach while she was on this blanket. She was so happy, just cooing away and shoving her hands in her mouth. Babies are so so awesome. Just looking at my two makes me feel like the luckiest lady alive.

As I have mentioned before, Clementine is in the beginning stages of teething, which, totally blows. I’ve been having such a hard time getting her to sleep, and the only way I’ve been able to do it is by rocking her in her car seat. This little trick started about a month ago when she was so congested we had to keep her upright. Now she doesn’t want to sleep any other way.

For the last week, even that has been trying. I usually sit at my computer and catch up on email & reading while I’m rocking her and one night she just would. not. stop. screaming. In a move of desperation I opened up my iTunes and scanned quickly for the first thing that could be deemed soothing. I popped on Vespertine by Björk and I swear, within minutes, Clementine was totally passed out. I thought maybe it was a fluke but it has worked every time since I first did it.

So Björk, if you’re out there, I totally owe you. Thanks for doing me a solid when you recorded Vespertine, I had no idea!

3 Months!

Or just shy of. This picture was so cute I couldn’t resist posting it early. I also wanted to take a photograph of my new & very beautiful INKE cushion cover (They have set up a new blog here in case any of you are interested). I know it’s a bit fuzzy but right after I took this picture, V whispered in Clemmie’s ear “Best Friends Forever” so slow & sweet, I nearly died. I feel so incredibly thankful for my babies & my family right now. I’m going to try & burn that moment into my brain so I can think about it years from now when they are fighting over the car keys.

So Far, So Good.


Life is still very hectic here but we seem to be on the verge of settling in. Clementine is a total sweetie, just like her big sister. There are times when I definitely feel like a waitress again (what can I get for you? Sneakers? Okay. I just have to run over & feed your sister……), but wow. When I see Violet in all her glory of being a big sister, it makes everything so worth it. I mean, I’ll be happy when the extra shut-eye comes back but man, they are so so cute together.

Clementine is here!



I am so elated to announce the birth of our newest little sweetie, Anna Clementine. She arrived Wednesday afternoon weighing in at 8lbs 11.5oz & is 20″ long! She is a super sweet baby & we love her dearly (obviously). Big sister Violet has already even given her a Spongebob sticker.
