“Holly Antoinette”

Sometimes I still can’t believe I have three daughters! They love each other so much. Sometimes it feel challenging to be mothering two very different phases, but I’m so grateful I get to do it. 

I made Conor take some photos of Maeve and me. I felt like I was art directing, but I want pictures of myself and my baby so… 

I live for Maeve’s smiles! Luckily she gives me the most ;)

Maeve is 3.5 weeks old and life is still crazy. I haven’t even attempted to find a new rhythm nor have I needed to with Conor’s generous paternity leave. My days are filled with nursing Maeve, sleeping, showering and lounging. I’m trying to get out for walks. I’m looking forward to getting back on my feet again, but I’m also really enjoying nestling in and caring for my baby while everything else slips away. In it’s own way it’s beautiful.

I took some photos of my three girls yesterday. That was exhausting, but worthwhile. When the big girls are back in school all the daylight will be faded by the time they get home so I knew I had to take the opportunity. 

We all love Maeve so much!

Holly worked really hard in first grade and I’m super proud of how much she grew and learned this year! She’s a great reader, she loves science and math is kind of her jam. Her school has an amazing music teacher and Holly loved it! Holly makes friends with everyone on the playground. She’s a joy to be around! Holly lost something like 6 teeth during first grade (8 total in 10 months!) so her smile changed so much! Her two front teeth used to be a lot more gappy, but now they’re less so. We’re really excited for summer break! I loved not having to be up and out the door this morning. We’re looking forward to some fun.

Holy smokes! I just compared Holly’s first day with her last day and she has really changed! It’s not fair! Make time stop!

Holly is participating in Cross Country at school and she had her first “meet” this week. It was the most adorable thing I’ve ever seen! Oh my goodness! A whole mess of cute kids in their school jerseys just so excited to be there. Holly was all smiles. At the end of it all I asked her what she liked best and her answer was all of it. She said there wasn’t anything she didn’t like. Win! Holly got to ride a school bus from her school to the park where they raced. That was her first time on a bus and it was a thrill! It’s the little things when you’re 6 years old. Holly did a great job. We loved cheering her and the other kids on. She totally had a runner’s high afterwards. She has one more meet before the season is over and we’re all looking forward to it. Long live childhood!

It was a little tough to send Holly to school this year. We’ve only been in Spokane for 2 weeks and I feel like we know very little about the school. I was nervous! Holly was nervous! Imagine my relief when I picked her up at the end of the day, asked her how her day was and her response was an enthusiastic, “It was great! I had fun!” Phew! It all went well. She’s still our happy Holly. Here’s some photos of my big girl on her big day.

Can you see Greta making faces through the door window? Honestly! Greta is turning into such a class clown. She’s discovering she likes to make people laugh and does she ever make us laugh! Love these two sisters.

Greta starts preschool tomorrow!
