Right Now....

Outside my window: the leaves are wet from an sudden evening downpour.

I am thinking: that even with my third babe I am still learning new things about what it means to be a Mama with a newborn baby. 

I am thankful for: the special time the older kids going to have with Grampa and Gigi for the next couple of days. 

From the kitchen: enjoying the food made with love from my circle of Mama's. 

I am wearing: my new babe in our Heart 2 Heart sling. Babywearing is a lifesaver.  

I am creating: many new ideas in my head for the fall show season, oh the new things that are coming are going to be great.  

I am going: to enjoy the next few days just me and this sweet babe, while missing my bigger ones at the same time. 

I am reading: nothing.... I am looking for a good read.  Any suggestions? 

I am hoping: my Mom is enjoying herself overseas. 

I am hearing: my inner voice guiding me towards to right choices and decisions. 

Around the house: the signs of summer 

One of my favorite things: the chai lattes that friends bring when they visit. 

A few plans for the rest of the week: rest, relaxation, friends, snuggles, and knitted stitches. 

Here is picture for thought I am sharing..

Strawberry Fields Forever

Today we left the house for a short and quick trip to the strawberry field.  I have been snuggled up in bed with this new bundle of amazement and have been dreaming of strawberries since my first taste of the season at last weeks market.  
So before the rain hit we quickly went over to the strawberry patch.  This year was Lily's first year picking and she was so excited.  After filling her little basket she moved on to daisy picking and of course we all got one stuck in our hair. For a brief moment I saw the years ahead of us of picking strawberries each spring and how next year Ben will be sitting between the rows. We picked a small amount to satisfy the senses but I am sure I will be back before the season is over.  I just want to eat berries until I am drunk with their sweet taste!

{this moment}

As I swim in the waiting game of the final days of my pregnancy I look for a few quiet moments, even if it is not me taking them.

New Baby Ducks

Less than 24 hours old and these baby ducklings have found a new home at Nana's farm.  The kids get so excited when the baby animals start arriving. Lily was so much gentler and more at ease than when the baby chicks came a month ago.  She already getting into the rhythm of things. Sam is an old pro showing Lily how to hold them as well as the gentle way to pet them with only two fingers.
Super cute! Both the ducklings and the kids.
