Smiles, Splashes, Slumber, and other September Shenanigans

IMG_6755It was quite a delight to capture Charlotte’s smile at 5 and a half weeks.  Her smiling time is rather brief, so I am so grateful to have it saved in photo form.IMG_6714 I think whoever had this idea for a big splash is rather brilliant!  IMG_6715

IMG_6735I don’t sleep well with all of her little movements, but I am sure glad he is able to.  IMG_6748  Today I had dishes to be done, laundry in the dryer from yesterday, and stuff all over the house that needed to be picked up.  Lydia asked to go blow bubbles.  I took the opportunity to be present with Lydia and go outside to blow bubbles.  I can get frustrated with the state of our home, but I know I made the right choice here.  Quality time outside with Lydia was a good move, and the dishes will get done some time today.  It is not likely that everything that needs attention will get it today, but that is okay.  It took me effort to walk away from the mess, especially since Charlotte was sleeping and I could have gotten stuff done.  But instead of dwelling on the mess inside, I soaked in the sunshine and was thankful that Lydia still wants me to go outside with her while she blows bubbles.IMG_6749I haven’t spent much time in the garden lately.  I found basil growing in three places today that we hadn’t planted it.  It was a pretty surprise. IMG_6760 One eyebrow up and one eyebrow down.  She is definitely related to Kyle and Eliana.
