Let's go fly a kite

Dear Mom,

We went kite flying tonight after Dave got home from work. It was nothing short of magical for me. The kids were so delighted and cheerful. The wind was just right. The pictures  are right off my phone (no filter); it was perfect! Could not have been better.
One of those moments that my heart could have burst. You would have loved it.
I love you, mama.

Henry's first foods

The way this boy chews on things, you'd think he'd be ready for a steak. Alas, the rice cereal and milk weren't too big of a hit at first, but he's slowly warming up to it.  
After a couple of bowls of this stuff, though, this boy's insides slow waaaay down. So...oats and barley it is.  Along with some applesauce, he isn't having too much trouble anymore.  verall, I'm learning this little boy's stomach is sensitive, to say the least. Should make introducing more foods a little interesting.

Mornings with Henry

My favorite time of day is the first real daylight feeding with this boy. I always bring him into bed for breakfast and a little chit chat.  The haze of the overnight feedings is gone.  'm a bit more alert, as is he.  We snuggle and talk and wait for the siblings to make their way into my room. This time almost feels sacred to me. It is sweet.  And quiet.
