My fav’s

This post has been sitting in my drafts forever and I was humming and hawing over whether to publish it.  I was worried that it would push this  space into the too personal realm.  I’ve come to the conclusion that it is no different than how I wear my work hat.  I value and respect the intimacy of the journey, most times an unwanted one, I have the privilege of joining families on.  This makes me practice in a very personal way.  Why should this space be any different?

Anyways,  this is not a feeding related post, just remnants of gratitude from Thanksgiving weekend.  It seemed timely as we head into the Christmas season.

Some of my favorite things right now:

– my girls randomly asking where their little friends are and why they aren’t with us

-F’s demands:  “hold my hand, mama”.  usually quickly followed up with “i do it myself mama”

-E’s quiet moments with her little sister.  i heard her tell F that she was proud of how tough F was.

-E’s new comments like “it’s a great day to be home together” or “daddy, it’s nice to have you home.”

-daddy love. The squeals when he comes home from a week of being away is heart squeezing.

-little girls practicing “mama-ing” on their babies in preparation for our new baby’s arrival

Each new stage brings new favourites and I hope  this continues as we age.  Just as it won’t get any easier, the challenges will just change.

As our little family embarks on a time of change, we are grateful for our blessings.

Merry Christmas!!!
