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

Easter Weekend

Hello! Happy mid-week to you. This is the roll of photos we shot over our Easter weekend, and oh what a wonderful weekend it was. It was so nice to have family here to visit - even if the weather was cooler than we anticipated! We visited the redwoods in Felton, ate vegetarian burritos, went to the epic shoreside in Montara, and the brewing company in Half Moon Bay. Our hearts are full and our home is feeling quite empty now ;)

As a side note, I've found a renewed love with film. This is a post for another time, but it bears mentioning here! There has been much on my mind re: photography, and hopefully this will be the space I can share that.

For the curious, all the above were shot on a Nikon FM10 with Fuji Superia 400 speed film.

The Long And Short Of It

Hi, friends. How was your weekend? After having non-stop rain for nearly a month, we finally received a short break in the El Niño weather to head to the coast. Even though it's not in our backyard, I still feel like twenty miles to the beach is a good compromise. It really is lovely here and it makes me happy to see the girls so at home in the sea.

This week we are gearing up for Easter and some very special visitors -- my Mama and my sister! It will be the first time Mom has seen our new home or visited the Bay Area, so to say we are excited would be an understatement. We cannot wait. I've even kept it as a surprise from the girls, so I'm sure the look on their faces alone when they see Grammie and their Auntie will be the highlight of the whole trip.

What about you? Any special Easter plans or crafting?

We made some hot crossed buns for the first time last year, and I'm hoping I can bake a little something special this year too. We're going to try this recipe a…

Made It To Another Weekend : The Table

Oh, weekend. We are so happy you're here. It's been a doozy lately. I won't put you through the pitiful details, don't worry-- but I'm just happy to exhale a little bit and am welcoming these days of togetherness with open arms. PS- look at me using unfiltered iPhone photos in a blog post. Who am I? Sometimes I don't even recognize myself. Truly a measure of just how exhausted I really am both mentally and physically ;)


And while I've been seriously down and out in every other area of my life, we've actually been doing some pretty cool things at home. I'm so proud of Sofia and her desire to soak up new information, to learn, and to think of me as a pretty cool "teacher". I'm so in awe of everything she does. But this is all part of the inevitable fact that these kiddos of ours are growing up. 
Most days we'll do some kind of worksheet, practicing our letters and cutting skills and getting to color.... other days we'll just spe…
