3/52: mtn babies in their double chariot

These days are feeling full and happy, having a double stroller has been making a huge difference with me getting out with the girlies.  While it was nice having a single, and sometimes cramming the girls in or carrying Eliza (or sometimes Josey) in the stroller, it was great to finally connect with someone in the Valley who wanted to swap!

It's times like these that I am so grateful for the resources I do have as a mother.  Sometimes motherhood can feel so hard and awkward and challenging, yet I have so many gifts and loved ones to lean on, and probably should do more of.

If there's one thing I know, it's that I'm glad these two have eachother!

mtn mama: Portraits (2/52)

Eliza May!  You are eating all sorts of things from blueberries to bananas to avocados to... pizza and cottage cheese!  You REALLY love blueberries.  Your favorite person is Josey and I hope you always look to her the way you do now.  Lots of funny energy and love between you two.  You are starting to sound more and more like big sis as you explore your sounds.  We just unloaded a box of her old clothes and you look so cute and cuddly in all of them.  I am so thankful to experience this sweet baby stage twice. 

Josey James!  You are really into "King Lion" this week, as you discovered a sheet music book of mine and I played you "The Circle of Life".  We went to Abi's house and watched it together and that was a very big deal for you.  You are so imaginative, all day long coming up with different scenarios and adventures.  Things that scare you (tractors, storms, sharks), are favorite discussion topics, too.  You are so sweet and nurturing but so intense and funny too.  People tell me often. You tire me out!  But just today, I found myself thinking, "I'm so glad she's our first child.  She's going to lead the rest of the family to be adventurous, fun, and loving."  It's true, big girl!

Mtn Mama: Portraits (1/52)

Happy New Year!  
// A portrait once a week in 2015 //
Of our girls, for our girls

Josephine James, 2 and a half.  You could've played in this snowpile all day.  You love to pretend to cook and play with your babies & guys- making them feel better if they bump their heads or get tired.  Singing and dancing are your favorite and you love to pretend to play violin.  Emotion is the root of everything you do!  Sweet sweet girl. 

Elizabeth May, 8 months.  Sleeping is becoming fewer & further between with all the sissy-watching you do.  When you're awake, you sound like Donald Duck, and you're holding on to everything, proud little squaker!  Crawling is no problem for you, and you are also a fan of sidelaying (and leg lifts), flexible baby!  You're both my little cuddly loves, and I love you so!
