My man: arriving from a long day at work, he gives me a hello kiss, the kids giggle because we kiss on the mouth(!). He begins to sit down to enjoy the view and peel an orange, and he's hardly on the floor before at least someone is clamoring for his lap. These moments will dissolve all too soon, I know, but they are hard for me to savor with the chaos that inevitably tags along. I believe it might be one of those daily resolutions. Enjoy these snapshots, Katy. Smile at little girls on dad's lap sharing a story, a snack, or a snuggle (and take lots of pictures, especially when you have "placenta brain" as my midwife calls it.)

Love the photo. Ryan is such a good dad.ReplyDelete
sweet little moment. i have so many portraits of my kids, but really, this is what I'm trying to remember, isn't it?ReplyDelete
so are you doing a water birth this time?
I think I still have placenta brain, is that possible? Thanks for the reminder because wasn't it yesterday you were that age?ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing these moments. Thank you for loving my son and giving me a precious flock of giggling girls.ReplyDelete
Not least, thank you for being my daughter.
I LOVE this picture...the contrast is beautiful.ReplyDelete
Also, I totally know what you mean when you find it hard to enjoy the
'moments'. It is so easy to be distrated by all of the chaos, but my baby is ten years old now, so I am starting to get a glimpse that these 'moments' melt away faster than you or I can imagine...so continue to enjoy.
I have so much more than placenta brain--uterus brain!ReplyDelete
What a great shot!ReplyDelete
I love placenta brain..I think I suffered from that the entire pregnancy.ReplyDelete
