.....gratitude......

......how does one sum up a 2 month maternity leave from this blog?......

......my Halloween post is still in edit mode and waiting to be published, 7 days later we had a baby, all 4 sets of grandparents have been here, Elsie turned 6, Thanksgiving came and went......we thought we had a colicky baby, but we don't (praise God!) and then the whirlwind of Christmas was upon us......I have 154 pictures to share, but this one sums up the last 8 weeks most appropriately......


....she's perfect......

....our home is chaotic and there have been a lot of emotions running rampant around here.......extreme excitement, hyper big siblings, exhausted parents, moments of extreme gratitude that runs to my core.......laughing, crying, yelling, hugging......it has been a full circle......

.....and I will post the story of how Mae entered the world......and I will share how loved she is in this house and how she has completed our family in more ways than one......




.....and I will also share the adjustments we are making......the set backs some of us have taken, the mistakes I have already made, the anxiety I have felt about so many different things when it comes to all of these little people......




.....there is a lot to tell, but it won't be tonight.....

.....tonight I am coming back to you, blog, to take a peek at what I have missed......the quiet times alone with you when I can lay out my heart and mind and document this time in our life that is so fragile, so beautiful, so blurry.......

....but so clearly precious and dear.....


.....it feels good to be back.....Xx
