Weekending and Gratitude

It has been a lovely, lazy weekend hanging at home. Some of the boys spent the night with a friend, the rest of us hung at the house and chilled. My LLL leader stopped by and delivered a case of Girl Scout cookies... just what we needed. We were running low on sugary treats. A lot of time has been spent gazing at wee little Lou-la (what Fiona calls her), which is very wonderful.

In Gratitude...
~ all of my beautiful friends for bring food, company, and love to my house this week
~ my wonderful children for always welcoming new members
~ fresh squeezed citrus juice
~ warm spring days outside
~ my dearest soul mate for always being awesome

Joining Amanda from Soulemama for This Moment. A single photograph from the week, a moment I wish to pause, savor, and remember.
( Couldn't pick just one moment this week...)

Crafting is a bit of a challenge with a brand new 3 day old baby in your arms... but I was able to cut out a dozen hearts for Fiona and Rowan to color and decorate as the wished while I sat on the sofa and nursed wee Nuala. They also made bead and button necklaces. They were totally engrossed with this for well over an hour, which is pretty darn amazing. Then daddy took them to the park for scootering and sunshine while the wee babe and I snuggled and visited with a friend.

Weekending and Gratitude

Our weekend started early Friday morning with the birth of Nuala Siobhan. Our wee baby girl. She is a perfect little bundle of baby and we are all so happy to have her here, finally, Earthside.
The rest of the weekend was spent staring at Nuala, and eating pie and watching lots of shows on Netflix. Perfect.

I am ever so grateful for:

~ My dear and loving husband who is always by my side, no matter how crazy I get. I love him so very much.
~ My beautiful children who welcome all new members with joy and love.
~ My friends who have my back, bringing food, love and beauty into my life.
~ My wee baby girl, welcome to the family my love.
