i was rocking eve to sleep earlier tonight listening to her steady sleepy breath, and kevin and lily's faint laughter from the room directly below me while he got her ready for bed. (i found out later some of those laughs were due to the fact that lily snuck her blankie into the shower with her- so blankie is squeaky clean now!).

from eve's rocker i could see across the hall into lily's room & from my vantage point i could see two cribs and suddenly i felt incredibly thankful for the two amazing, thriving girls that sleep in those cribs. thankful for the husband that works so hard to keep this roof over our heads. thankful for a moment of peace and quiet in a comfortable chair with my baby girl after a crazy day. i really should take a few steps back more often- its good for the soul!

also, by kevin's request, here is a side-by-side of eve's pic from a few days ago and a specific picture of me it brought to mind for him.

whaddya think babe? still think she reminds you of me? :)


the good news is, he makes both of us smile pretty darn big.

So precious! All too often it's easy to get wrapped up in the craziness of kids. thanks for reminding me to stop and smell the roses... Eve is a mini-mollie. Enjoy her~
