October 30, 2019

I'm sure I've talked about "What's saving your life right now?" before, but it was on my mind this morning, one of those CRAZY mornings that found me nearly three hours into constant motion and commotion before I could as much as run a brush through my hair or brush my teeth.

I've been craving a bit of peace and quiet lately in these last 6-ish (hopefully, or less would be great too!) weeks of pregnancy, and it is just nowhere...

Life lately is...

*Enjoying fall! The best season of them all. We've been savoring Eloise's days off and I don't think twice about keeping Mimi home on those days (since their days off never seem to coincide...) so we can have family time. It's been a treat to have Nick take a couple hours off on the mornings the girls are off from school and we've been able to do our favorite fall activities. We are soaking in these years, whi...

We're a week into school and I haven't yet caught my breath, but George is taking a longer nap and I have a few minutes before getting Eloise from the bus stop (which I'm still getting used to!) so let's see if I can do a quick summer recap.

First: Cutchogue!

This was our first time taking the kids to Greenport since Mimi was a baby, and the girls LOVED the old-fashioned carousel. And Lucharito's was a hit with all parties invol...

In pregnancy I find that things affect me more. I've always been a sensitive person (HSP, INFJ, I have all the acronyms working for/against me), but when pregnant, I have a different level of thin skin. 

Maybe it's some kind of survival mechanism that alerted our ancient ancestors to impending danger? And maybe this is why pregnant women can be more emotional—because we're taking in more things. Our senses are heightened.

(Our first car voyage with three! Before we took out the 8th seat and converted to captain's chairs in the second row with Eloise in the third row.)

A family member reached out recently to ask for car entertainment suggestions for a long car ride she's taking with her two young children this summer, which got me thinking about what our plan will be for our own upcoming summer trip. For some trips I've gone whole hog, and others...

(Last day of school photo! I can't believe Eloise is done with preschool forever!)

We are three weeks into summer and so far everyone's having a great time. The girls just finished up three weeks of camp at their school, which they loved and I am feeling smart for signing them up for because this will be the first year we're cruising into July without me feeling like I've already exhausted all my ideas (and energy) for the summ...

With just over a week of school left, summer is just around the corner for us, and I have been accumulating some thoughts and a loose plan.

Some summers have been not my favorite, and some have been great. The key, I'm slowly learning, is to recognize where we are, and honor the stage we're in.

This summer I'll have a 1, 3, and 5 year old, and will be in my second trimester with baby #4. I am convinced that summer is always a bu...

A little announcement for you today!

Another baby is on the way for our family, and I'm due mid-December. We are getting excited to meet him or her, and it's a dream realized to be entrusted with four little souls. We told the girls last night, after my 12-week ultrasound, and it finally feels real. It was THE MOST PRECIOUS conversation I've ever had. They're so excited!

I am also so thankful to be done with my last first trime...

Monday! Oh, I love a Monday. (Not much has changed.) 

1. To keep myself accountable for my only New Year's resolution, I've been keeping a list of the books I read as I finish them, starring the ones I liked. Up until recently, it's mainly served to remind me how much of a book rut I've been in—out of the twelve books I've finished since January, I've only liked two! 

I have a feeling that's going to change. After I had my first...

How's that for a combination of topics?

I spent a few minutes this week researching spring fever. Is this a real phenomenon? My children (girls) have been OUT OF CONTROL lately. They have boundless energy, are waking at the crack of dawn, and don't listen to a blessed thing I say. I've been feeling like all I do is yell.

We've also had some of the wettest weather I remember, so we're more cooped up than usual. Come on spring! I...
