If it weren't for photobooth, I'd have very few pics with my kids.

It was just me and the little guy today. We hung out, we ran some errands and went shopping. He was an angel. Today he is 4 weeks old. I cannot believe how much he has already changed and grown... how well he holds his head up; how he seems to win at every staring contest. He's such a joy, even at 3 a.m feedings. :) We did the photobooth thing this afternoon while we were waiting for Daniel to get home with Zoe. I call this time our calm time... before the house is filled with Zoe's squeals, laughter and chatter. I love the house when we're all in it, but I'm making it a point to cherish these moments as well.

Lovely Day


I took a long hot shower while my kids slept in.

I got my camera out for the second time in two days so that I could photograph Zoe holding her little brother for the first time. Zoe was thrilled to be given the opportunity to hold him in her arms and Finnegan was surprisingly comfortable with his big sister. It was a great moment for me. I had to practically pry Finn from Zoe's arms when the hugging got just a little out of control.

I watched Annie for the billionth time with Zoe while I held Finn in one arm and edited photos with the other. Being a mother of two has taught me the real meaning of multi-tasking.

I juggled both children with ease.

I read to Zoe while I held her brother in my arms.

I was able to set Finn down in his swing for an hour and go help Zoe put her pink tutu on so we could dance together in her room while bad pop music played on her Hello Kitty boom box. We also had a mini photo shoot just the two of us where she hammed it up for my camera. It was …


It's been a while, huh? Yes. I know. I've been busy figuring out how to juggle a toddler and a newborn, healing from my c-section, and trying to sleep whenever possible. Life is hectic these days, but I could not even imagine it without this little man:

I'll be back to regular blogging as soon as I get over being so annoyed with the process of typing one-handed.

He's the most perfect baby boy I have ever seen... and we're particularly fond of calling him "Captain Finn".

More to come later. Happy New Year!
