mamabird life {one}



seeing...  
my daughter change almost daily.  sunlight and snow on the mountains.


smelling...
coffee.  recently-shampooed hair.


listening...
to Christmas music.  I'm just not ready to be done.  *please, no judgement!*


believing...
that I am truly blessed and there really are *much* worse things than drool stains on my shoulders.  ;-)


wanting...
the tardis to be real.




wishing...
I could live several places at once OR that all of my loved ones lived within an hour of each other.


thinking...
waaaaay too much about future baby names.  with no idea about how many children we will be gifted, I try not to dwell on it... but names are so FUN!  plus the hubby and I rarely like the same names, so it is good to be prepared.


laughing...
at my mind.  how it works, how it responds.  what it retains (random plot lines from that one movie I watched years ago) and what it instantly forgets (names and what I was going to cook for supper!).


buying...
sleepers for Renniebird.  she is growing so quickly (though slowing down a bit now, thankfully).  she has outgrown most of what was gifted to us, so now Andrew and I are realizing just how expensive a child can be.  ;-)  
*holding back a rant about how children's clothes should NOT cost the same as adult clothes since they are quite a bit smaller!*


singing...
songs from my childhood plus a random selection of whatever pops into my brain!




wearing...
warm socks, comfy home-clothes, no makeup on weekdays (which has been doing wonders for my skin!), and lots of chapstick (it is dryyyyyy here)!


feeling...
tired, happy, restless, emotional.  many things and usually all at the same time.


reading...
Bible.  hopefully adding some new reading material soon.  i miss it!


anticipating... 
february.  seeing my family for the first time in four months.  <3


loving...
firstly, the start of this new series "mamabird life".  secondly, quite honestly, also quite happy to not need a creative title every single time i post a small life update or pictures!  ;-)
lastly, this quote:
"children are not a distraction from more important work.
they are the most important work."
c.s. lewis

Rennie is so HUGE and beautiful! My little niece was born last August and she seems to undergo a major transformation every time I see her. Each week they get bigger, smarter, acquire more hair, more personality...it's incredible! I love how I can see you and your husband in Rennie. You are a fabulous mother and I can't wait for more of your "mamabird life" blog posts!
