My Babies ans Me...

Embrace the Camera again!
Our days seem to be flying by lately...
I suppose having a newborn in the house
and being that I am trying to savor every moment
of those newborn days
has something to do with the days flying by!
Angelina is three weeks old already...
how can that even be possible?
 Yesterday I got out the trusty
tripod and attempted to take some nice pictures...
 Angelina is such a calm baby...
now that she has longer periods of being awake,
she loves to just look around.
 We used to use the tripod all the time and
the kids loved it...
it got shoved to the back of the closet while
I was on bedrest...
So the kids were super excited to see that I
pulled it out again!
 Girl time!
James is in the picture too...
but all you can see is his feet!
He randomly decided to lay down for the picture,
so Elsie and I squeezed together in front of him!
I Love my kids.
I truly feel blessed.
Even when we are having a bad day...
{like a "terrible two'' kind of day}
I still have a deep down kind of joy and happiness.
Being a mother is what I am meant
to be doing.
I am in my happy place.
That said, I don't walk around with a smile on my face
all day long...
my mom gets far too many exasperated texts from me!
because being a mom is hard work...
especially when one child is 2, one a newborn
and one you are supposed to be homeschooling!
I guess the trick is to find contentment in the little
things and cherish those
little moments of pure happiness...

You look amazing for having such a tiny baby! I love the first photo. I'm with you on the hard days. Amanda's schooling consists of doing Reading Bear on the computer and a math game on Daddy's phone. The rest is all working on social skills and most days it feels like I'm totally bombing that one too. It will all be worth it, right?
