Rylie and I headed into the metropolis of Lowell, Michigan to mail an etsy purchase (thank you, New York) and then stopped off at Goodwill for a little browsing that turned into $29.20 worth of wool goodies. These will all turn into soakers and dresses for winter…hopefully some will end up in the shop.
For the past couple of months, I have had the blessing of helping out friends with their kiddos- all three of them…born at the same time… natural triplets. Oh My Lanta. Michelle showed up at her 20-week prenatal appointment and the doctor said, “Hey! There’s 2! No. There’s 3. THREE babies!!!” Can you imagine? I can’t. I simply cannot imagine. So, every other week or so, I grab a feeding shift and dive back into newborn land…that’s Maggie sleeping on my skirt– isn’t she adorable? We have a special bond, as she’s a difficult eater, and I own a difficult eater- we understand each other. I’ve also been introduced to the world of reflux as Keegan loves to school people in the “are you wearing something washable?” department. Samantha has thus far given me no trouble, but she is still young. Anyway, go give them some love. Remember when your life was feeding, changing, sleeping, repeat, repeat, repeat? Now times that by three. Yeah. Yee-haw. But, man, those kids are gorgeous. GORge-us.
And now…if your life depended on it (and someday it may), I ask you:
Chocolate or Vanilla?
Off to do a little knitting while the Shoebox is quite for awhile…
and then let the teething madness continue.
