sickies and stuff

IMG_9740

I have little sickie people around me. It’s hard to be the mom of sickies. I find my blood pressure rising and having to take deep breaths. But this little family of mine gives me such a deep sense of joy and peace.

We just had family in town (kiss, kiss—we miss you already.) and my sweet daughter turned 10. (TEN!) It was a great week (although exhausting and emotional) and now I’m starting lots more projects around the house. The kids’ rooms need painting and organizing. I ‘m going to add another crib in the nursery (I’m hoping that will help with nap time) and make more fun stuff for that happy little room.

The babies are getting a schedule and sleeping more and better. Somehow the tiredness isn’t getting any better, though. They have started solid food and it cracks us all up to watch them eat. They are beginning to laugh and they keep us all entertained. The whole family gathers around them when they are awake to see what cuteness we can gather for the day.

I have committed to go to Squam Art Workshops this fall and can hardly wait! But I need to find a way to pay for it!! So if anyone needs any custom orders, now’s a good time:) I’ll be listing new items in my shop this week, so keep an eye out for gifts for friends and family. I have had several requests for prints of my paintings. (You guys are awesome!) That’s one of my biggest dreams—to paint and paint and paint {and sell my work!} So I’m trying to figure out the process of making prints and as soon as I have some, I’ll post them in my shop.

Happy Monday, people!
