along for the ride


I am so in love with this little baby - he has stolen my heart! Reid has a lovely and sweet disposition which I find so charming, and am ever so grateful for.

Although, I have to admit, he did kick me in the butt the first little while - my goodness! I had somehow forgotten how much work little babies can be. But those first many days of big ups and downs have faded into a new life together and once again I find myself loving being a mom and these days together with my two little ones.

The funny thing about this photograph (above) of Reid, is that Adelaide was driving me crazy when I was trying to take it. She was dancing all around Reid's head all hyper and crazy-like. Totally getting on my nerves! But it was because of her and her antics that I got this wonderful shot - Reid is looking up and smiling at her. I have to try and remember this - to accept my daughter more. And to take deep breaths, and try to be more patient.


Mostly, Reid just loves being with us. Whatever projects or adventures Adelaide and I get up to, Reid is always with us, too, happiest just to be along for the ride.

Both Adelaide and I refer to Reid as "our baby", and he truly is.

I'm really enjoying these little updates about being a family of four. I appreciate your honesty and your lovely observations along the way.

I am expecting my second child right now and am constantly wondering how I will balance my love and time for them both and you give me confidence at hope that it will be possible - thank you.

And that last photo is killing me - love it!

Goodness, he is sweet! And what wonderful reflections. My daughter and son are 22 months apart, and wow! some days are so overwhelming. But mostly life is so lovely. It's good to see the sweet side of things. ;)

Just gorgeous - my second son was born on March 13th and we have also had a bit of a rough time of it up until recently. Thank you for writing so honestly.

that last photo is so funny and sweet both. And the first really is a treasure knowing he was laughing at his sister. It can be hard though to not get caught up in whatever it is we might be trying to accomplish--I do understand this! We learn so much from our children about ourselves, don't we?

All this pictures are so much saying "love love love!".
I love them.

Hello! I've been a reader of your wonderful and inspiring blog for a while. That photo of your boy on the dining table is soooo cute! What a patient little man. I've got a 3.5-year-old girl and an 18-month-old boy. I love the combination, but parenting is hard and I never find enough crafting time. I hope you'll find that elusive balance!
