each day is a blur of beautiful, messy moments and i'm trying so hard to be present and still capture it every once in awhile. i feel lucky if i pull out my camera once in awhile but printing or even blogging seems like a far off thing these days. so here is a little collection of moments from the last month to calm my nerves and help me feel like maybe if i post them they won't get lost in the abiss of my hard drive.

watching him grow || fifteen weeks
this week it seems like he's changed so much. he is really starting to look around and see the world more than ever. before he would just stare at me when i held him and now those eyes are looking at everything around him. he's found those hands and sucks on those irresistibly chubby fists quite a bit. he's not so interested in his binky and i'm certain those gums are starting to bother him. working on that first tooth already. he doesn't want to lay his head down any more, he's always working to sit up and see what's going on. he's starting to move himself in circles when he's laying down, i'm already certain he's going to be a busy one. still he is so happy and those giggles and smiles come with ease. we are all smitten with him. he's been so good for our family and makes our home a sweeter place.
i'm just getting around to looking at these photos of sweet adelyn in her baptism dress. i love who she is and what she is becoming. she lives in her own world; always singing to herself, creating little things out of scraps of fabric, dancing, always dancing. she busy's herself everyday. i think her mind goes a mile a minute with ideas of lemonade stands and activities and the latest club she wants to start. she loves to do cartwheels and leaps and always has some new injury from all her hard practice. she has a big heart and is such a big help. she's a good friend and always has someone calling her to come play. she tells me she wants to be a chinese acrobat when she grows up or work at jamba juice. she has a good eye for colors and still always impresses me with her artwork. she could do just about anything she wanted with that drive and motivation she has. her mind is like a steel trap and is fast becoming much smarter than me. i love her so much and love being her mama.
