darin says he thinks this should be lucy's go-to look.
a little white vintage shift and bare legs. perfect for these 80 degree days, easter eggs in the grass, blowing dandelion seeds, a romp and a swing.
here is our morning routine these days:
darin wakes up first with one or both babies, between 7:30 - 7:45 a.m.
i stay in bed for one more hour of sleep, stretched out blissfully in bed, and i sleep hard and dream.
then: coffee, breakfast, get the girls dressed, make beds. darin rides his bike to work around 9:45.
then: i nurse polly to sleep for her morning nap and lucy and i go outside by 11:00. i put on music, hang laundry, sweep the patio, play with her, and maybe even read a page or two.
when polly is awake, anything goes! i might be able to do the breakfast dishes, i might not. but usually we pack it up and go somewhere for a while...lucy falls asleep on the way home from errands, and naps from 2-3:30 or so. polly is always awake during lucy's nap, that's just how it goes. i try to not crave alone time and just enjoy staring into my sweet baby's face and take the chance to give her my undivided attention.
late afternoons are spent outside. we have a snack and draw with chalk on the ground.
daddy gets home around 5:45 and plays with the babes while i make dinner, or he makes dinner while i nurse polly. lucy likes to stand on a stool at the counter and "help."
they are sweet easy breezy days. i know this time is going to pass too quickly so i am not trying to do much except enjoy springtime with my babes. i told polly today, as i put a clean diaper on her sweet soft little body and she smiled merrily up at me from her changing table: "you're growing so fast. i better not blink!" and she chuckled out loud when i said BLINK. i said it again and again, making it a game and blinking my eyes dramatically and she loved it. she is learning to giggle and make happy loud noises and it just breaks my heart into a million pieces of exploding love.
woodpeckers knocking at the telephone pole,
doves cooing in the pines.
a tiny swish of a soft white dress,
and you laughing with twinkling eyes.
