Keeping up

Posted on May 31, 2006

Discovering that two is an everchanging game. Sometimes the timing is perfect, note the simultaneous napping and eating.A thing of beauty I tell ya.Also notice the devilish look on Briar’s jammy face. Also beautiful, but what an imp. And a fast one.

Quickie Picture Post

Posted on May 22, 2006

Life with two is definitely different. Times I would have been taking pictures are now spent changing a second diaper or trying to squeeze in time one on one with Briar or Avery. Here are some pictures to bridge the gap until I figure out where blogging fits into the mix. Playing in the water at the park with Dad. Speaking her mind. Taking a break from the slide.

Still pregnant. The wattage of my “glow” is significantly diminished.Sean keeps telling me I look beautiful. He just recognizes the warning signs of a pregnant woman at the end of her swollen, achy, harassed rope. High probability of head biting off, venomous barbs being spat, or hysterical tears. I think I am actually holding together pretty well, but must say that it is pretty remarkable how quickly one runs out of civil responses for the following scenario: ~~brring, brring, brri~~ “Hello?” “Oh hi. I didn’t think you’d be there. How are you? Any baby yet?” Yesterday as we walked the streets of downtown Glens Falls trying to coax the baby out women would look at me and say, “Oh, congratulations. I remember those days.…
