creativity & seasons

[dropcap style="font-size: 60px; color: #9b9b9b;"] I [/dropcap] have been awake since 4:45 due to needing to feed a 9 week old, and I'm feeling very wintery. Cold, tired, and a bit blah with a sore throat thrown in . . . ugh. Born and raised in Colorado and I still dread our winters. However, as…

processing

[dropcap style="font-size: 60px; color: #9b9b9b;"] I [/dropcap]have about 2 months of stuff to process, and I still have not found the time or space to do so. I will say the hardest part about having 3 kids is the noise, mess, and lack of time. 2 boys are noisy and messy enough by themselves, but…

the joy of cooking . . . ?

[dropcap style="font-size: 60px; color: #9b9b9b;"] S[/dropcap]o a few weeks after having Babes #3, I decided to attend a health/nutrition class at our church. I missed the first class due to being so disorganized at my life as a mom of 3, but made it to the second class, which covered all the things we should…

babies

[dropcap style="font-size: 60px; color: #9b9b9b;"] I [/dropcap] love babies. I love the newborn days . . . well, minus the sleep deprivation, which is feeling fully miserable right now. I love the sweetness of newborns; love watching them make smiles, sighs, grunts, and frowns while they sleep. I love the cuddles and the staring up…

brain? what brain?!

[dropcap style="font-size: 60px; color: #9b9b9b;"] C[/dropcap]an we say "overwhelmed"? OVERWHELMED. I returned to work this week, and I would love to say that it has gone smoothly. It hasn't. My desk at work is piled high with paperwork. I don't know where to even start; there's just too much to sort through. The chair at…

adapting

[dropcap style="font-size: 60px; color: #9b9b9b;"] S[/dropcap]o my husband wasn't impressed with my self photo skills . . . I apologize for the lack of quality photography on this site; it's just not in my skill set. And someday, I'll have to explain to Baby why we have very few pictures of her in Mommy's tummy…

oh my goodness . . .

[dropcap style="font-size: 60px; color: #9b9b9b;"] A[/dropcap]pparently, I say "oh my goodness" way too much as my firstborn now says it. We've had an infestation of spiders, ants, and earwigs in our house, and every night after the boys are put to bed, I hear a "OH MY GOODNESS! Ok, ok, ok, this is bad. Ezzy,…

transition

[dropcap style="font-size: 60px; color: #9b9b9b;"] I[/dropcap]t's so nice to have a voice back and not be coughing a lung every night. Besides multiple trips to the loo, I've actually had some sleep over the past few nights and am starting to feel somewhat rested. Plus, daily naps are helping as well. I'm always thankful for…
