at home

Life with a newborn is both slower and faster. Slower because we just hang out at home and cuddle and nurse and sleep, but faster because the days are over before we know it. Has it really been almost two weeks since she was born?  

The Little Miss got a hold of my camera today so I asked her to take some pictures of me holding Lark. I think she did a pretty awesome job for a two-year old! 

And good news! We figured out that the LM's fussiness and clingy behavior last week was caused by teething, not baby coming home jealousy. She got her four incisors (she is a really late teether) so no wonder she was emotionally volatile - ouch! She is now back to her normal self and giving Lark lots of hugs and kisses. Watching them interact makes me so happy, it's the best!


  1. She did a great job with those pictures! I would have never guessed that she took them unless you said it! Your hair looks too good for you to have a two-week-old. Amazing!

  2. Lark is a doll! my son was actually pretty bad when my daughter was born.. one of the toughest times of my life. their dad went on a 4 week music tour to europe 2 days after i gave birth. my son was 20 months and got sick and at times so jealous. but he got used to her and loves his little sister so much now :) its getting easier as they get older.. she just turned one!! u look great!! keep smiling :) xo

  3. I love the pics. they are good.. happy dance for ur lil girl!!
    I can relate. I cant believe that my lil boy is 7 weeks.


  4. I loved reading your birth story and am so impressed that you were able to stay that focused for that long!

    Also, I spied a finished quilt in the background! Even from here it looks beautiful. I'd love to share it on my blog whenever you find yourself needing something else to add to your to do list. ;)

    Your girls are precious!
