The Good Life

a full belly

We're settling in. I can't believe Little Miss is two weeks old. We jokingly (but very fondly) call her our model citizen. She naps well during the day. She sleeps rather well at night. She nurses well. We're falling in love.

The book club girls (and other friends and family) spoiled us rotten. Lola is going to be one well-dressed little girl. I hope she enjoys photo sessions...

The rest of life is humming along quietly (well, as quietly as a house full of little boys can be). Levi and I are feeling much, much better, but now it is Leif's turn to be down for the count. He is currently napping (feverishly) for the second day in a row. I'm praying that this horrible bug will have finished its course within a couple days and we can enjoy a healthy month or two!

Lessons have been happening here and there. We need to pick up the pace next week when everyone is well. But until then, we'll just take deep breaths and soak up the quiet.

a smidge of school

And a quote for my ChocLit Guild girls, in light of our excellent discussion about The Hunger Games trilogy last night:

The capacity for hope is the most significant fact of life.
It provides human beings with a sense of destination
and the energy to get started.

- Norman Cousins

Love that yawn! I look forward to seeing precious girl pics to go along with your - what's a good word for pretty that would not offend a bunch of boys? - handsome? cool? - can't come up with the right word, but you know we love seeing them!

Jealous. I would love to have a group gathered to discuss the Trilogy! In the meantime I'm making do with mini online discussion, with Stefani A. and others.

So glad y'all are recovering! May your little one continue to be a model citizen. I think that by #4 you've surely earned it ...
