mama bee


life is flying around here...i can hardly believe the month is almost through. 
phoebe is 3 weeks old today and i'm happy to say we're starting to develop a bit of a routine...a tiny tiny one which consists of nursing, nursing, cat nap sleeps, more nursing. it's been trying and exhausting and wonderful but doesn't make for very interesting blogging content (sorry for the long lapses in posts around here!)

it's a balancing act of soaking up this stage of her life, trying to not let is pass too quickly, (because it most certainly does) and day dreaming of more stable days...days of feeling 100%...of clothes fitting properly again, days with more rest and confidence and picking out wee baby halloween costumes.

it's a funny thing how babies have a way of making you ache and long for time to stand still and hurry up all at the same time. 

anyway, max is back home from another week with his dad...matt is back to work (ugh)...and i'm hoping to start up our summer again. swimming and ice cream cones and rainy afternoons painting barefoot by the window...all with a side of sweet baby smooching and a little more nursing.

  1. I totally feel you on the baby front. We welcomed our 2nd on May 1st and the summer has flown! And I so want to soak her up as much as possible because I do know how fleeting these baby days are, but at the same time, long for the the days when she can interact w/ her brother more and also her cousin who is the same age. Ah, motherhood, so many mixed emotions! But that first month is SO the hardest and at 4 weeks a routine just starts to magically happen, which I'm happy for you that it already is happening! You're almost through w/ that trying trying newborn phase!

  3. I know exactly what you mean by "making you ache and long for time to stand still and hurry up all at the same time." You want to savour all the newness/coos/fresh smiles but you also want to sleep a little longer. lol really it's all about the sleep.

  7. So sweet. Take it easy if you can... with a new baby sometimes even ice cream can be exhausting :) You are both beautiful.

  8. She is precious! Those first few weeks were so rough for me - at least since you've been through it before you know that things will eventually settle! :) I felt like time froze and I couldn't wait for my baby to get older and to start having FUN!! We're definitely having fun now, and I wish I could have been more patient and relaxed when she was a newborn. It sounds like you're handling it very well. Hope your sweet little family is having a great summer!

  10. She is the most sweetest baby I think I've ever seen. I love all that hair she has! Looks like she has potential to be a redhead :) If you get a sec, I'd love to hear your thoughts on my latest. xo

    Congratulations again!

  12. I've always heard that new moms need to sleep when the baby sleeps so it makes sense that in between nursing and sleeping regular life does not leave much time. I hope you'll share some of your art here.

  27. She is absolutely beautiful. My little one is now six weeks old, and I know exactly what you mean about wanting time to stand still and hurry up all at once.

  28. I remember those days well - the wanting it to get easier, but not wanting it to go too fast - it's a strange kind of feeling isn't it. I reckon we all must feel it. She is just adorable and must make it all worth while.
