a ray of sunshine...



since before I knew sweet Julien was growing inside of me the sun would shine so warm on my shoulders... on my belly... Julien's first weeks were spent basking in the French sunshine and floating in the sea and lakes... 
Now that he is here I find him most happy in the sunshine...

blueberry picking...

Julien's first family outing was something to remember...
we went blueberry picking.
What a fun adventure. It was just perfect. We set out one morning out east to a little farm. It was so quiet and still... peaceful! You could hear the bees buzzing... the breeze wooshing the trees.  My parents met us out there to fill a basket as well. The berries were just delicious! I think we ate more than we plucked but according to the farmers, that was ok. haha.
That night Cecilia told me she was so glad that Julien's first trip was to pick blueberries... it's something we would always remember.









That night after we made a blueberry pie, we had a big backyard fire with hooded sweatshirts and chocolate s'mores. I sat in a cozy chair and held Julien with the most beautiful view... 

first days home...

Oh the first days... so many things reminded me of when our girls were babies... remembering so many things... Looking at our big girls holding their baby brother filled my heart to the absolute rim with love. They looked so big all at once.
They were in love... We were too...
Changing diapers on a little bum... learning to breastfeed again.. falling asleep with a little angel on my chest.













Having a baby again really reminds you about slowing life down.
You know things go fast... my God... time flies... you don't realize it but suddenly you have an 11 year old that is as tall as you and a little infant in your arms. You know you MUST slow life down or it will go by in a blink. I feel lucky to be reminded...
