Wee Sophie

Several times over the past couple of weeks it has really been brought home to me exactly how small my Sophie is. I know at her one year appointment the doctor told me Sophie was in the 25th percentile for height. But that’s just a number and doesn’t really mean anything to me. I know […]

The World According to Bella

We found lobsters at the farmer’s market today for cheap, cheap, cheap. So of course my lobster-loving husband had to buy some. We were curious about what Bella’s reaction would be when we got them home. Would she be all lovey-dovey like she was last year? Or would she run screaming. I rather thought it […]

7 Quick Takes:

We didn’t walk far. Small children and pregnant women do not make for heroic expeditions. I’m still getting used to […]

Rainbows, Smiles, Sisters

Woke this morning at quarter to five with a loud clap of thunder. The birds were already singing but I rolled over and went back to sleep. Glad the girls didn’t wake. The rain was over by the time we got up and we had a lovely sunny morning. Dom and I began cleaning out […]
