Slowly Blogging

Wow! It is hard to blog with 2 kids. How does Soulemama do it with 4??
A few highlights from the past weeks:

Tate at Sports Day, wearing a shirt made by his cousin, Daniel.
I swear, she is smiling!
The most adorable hat, made in about 20 min flat by Kate from The Makery.
One of my favorite dishes. Shrimp+Garlic+Pasta+Veggies+Olive Oil. I won't be eating it for awhile, since Princess S was very gassy after I ate this concoction. (But it was very yummy...)
My favorite find from the boot sale. A Tea Trolley!! (It was only 3 pounds, and I couldn't pass it up.)

Day 13 with New Baby

On my bedside table to keep things easy for now...
A pretty (non maternity!) dress that makes me feel happy and summery:
Soleil's Baby Journal. I started one for Tate and it is way better than a baby book. I can just write a few things in it when I want, and I store pictures in a separate scrapbook.
My sleeping babe.

She's Here!

Soleil Chloe Schwartz.
June 2, 2010
My water broke at 1:50a, and she was born at 2:18a. We barely made it to the hospital. In fact, I think Paul said she was born within 2 minutes of me laying down on the hospital bed.

Tate has been an angel and asked about her all day yesterday. Time to rest!

Half Term Rainy Day

After Welly WalkPlaying "Puddle Jump"
(Raindrop shaped papers with 1, 2, 3 on them in a box, choose one and it determines how many puddles--the felt squares-- you jump until the end and then how many baskets you make at the basketball hoop at the end.)
