the days grow short as the nights grow long

fall fairy
what she wore to school today.

And though all these things will change,

The memories will remain

As green to gold, and gold to brown

The leaves will fall to feed the ground

And in their falling, make no sound



Winter Birds by Ray LaMontagne (my current fav)

I love your booted fairy. I also love your pregnant self! Heaven help anyone who would judge a pregnant woman for complaining--especially when there are multiple people in there, fighting for a cozy spot! Bless you, it hurts just thinking about it...so fresh in my mind! Lovin' the neclace--and the exasperated but kind look. (I don't think your eyes could possibly look unkind.)

How cute! I love that you let her express herself that way! I want to be that kind of mom when my baby is older!
