pieces of march




We have shared so much quality time together the past few days, me and you.  Trips to the midwife where you demonstrate with grunting noises of how mama is going to "push baby out", quick stops in for donuts at our favorite place in the city, climbing up on my lap as I try to finish up the last of my photo editing, and falling asleep together in the big bed. Papa has been putting in long hours at work, so we've both been happily keeping each other company. The last weeks are hard knowing my time to love only you is dwindling.  I'm not quite sure how the heart doubles in size after multiple children, but I trust that it does.

  1. Ah, I feel the same way... about the last weeks spending loving my one and only child.

  2. It is when you start believing that love could conquer everything - you find that you just have so very much of it. Enjoy this precious time though. X

  3. It does, oh, it does. You never have that again, the intensity of the first. And it looks like you've sucked up as much beauty out of it as possible before number two comes along. Good luck x

  4. As I sit here reading, number 2 is nibbling her chubby feet and giggling. It is just us. It is magical. Wait til you sit and hold them both... there is nothing better than a lap full of warm, cuddly babies.

  6. i think about how you love more when you add number two. it has to just work, right? everyone says you don't really know until it happens.

    glad you and sofia are getting good time together.

    midwife - homebirth? birthing center?

  7. trust that it does, indeed :) once baby arrives, it will soon be difficult to remember your days as a duo.. I am positive this is purely intentional by whoever was smart enough to make it this way. I love how present you are with sofia, so aware of how yours and her lives are about to change. I can only speak for myself but having ours close together was a real blessing - there was never any jealousy or misunderstanding by the older sibling(s) about baby's arrival, taking my attention away from them, and what new place they had in the family because they weren't old enough to assert their authority in that way. you are so in touch with what sofia needs, I can only imagine the transition to a trio will be seamless (obviously I mean trio when erick isn't around!) xx

  8. these are such lovely stills. you are so clearly a good mama. just know that because you love the first it makes all the more room in your heart to love the next. when I had my second, and i looked into his eyes, the love was just there. boom! love i didn't even know i had... and it was all because i had already had my first. somehow they magnified each other and the love just kept blooming & trumpeting.xo
