It's the Little Things...

It's the little things that make life beautiful. We're trying to sit back and appreciate all the little moments that this time in our life brings. I wanted to share a couple with you!

 It's the way Mckenna adoringly gazes at her brother.

It's the way Bennett screams in his carseat until he feels me close to him
...even if it's just holding my finger.

It's the new appreciation for what your big kid can already do.

It's the exhausting joy of balancing the needs of two (this is Bennett asleep on a lounge chair during a playdate while Mckenna swam with her best buddy)


It's getting to see a glimpse of your baby as a future mommy...she's a true multi-tasker.

It's snuggles in the middle of the night because sometimes cribs aren't as cozy.

It's snuggles during the day because most the time mommy just wants to feel you close.

It's really just snuggles anytime because there is nothing better than newborn snuggles.

It's the joy of looking out at one love and down at another and realizing your hands are full.

It's the feeling that your family is complete and your heart is fuller!

There are some many moments that can be missed with a newborn. I know that with Mckenna I was too anxious and worried all the time to really enjoy it for what it was. It's lacking sleep, it's uncertain, it's unpredictable, but it's so, so beautiful. I've chosen to enjoy it for exactly what it is...sleep will come later, routine will some sometime, today is perfect as it is.
