Happy Friday from my little birdy here.


Fall is Brighter Here

The temperatures have been dropping and leaves have even been falling. (I’m slowly trying to identify all the trees, shrubs, and flowers on our property – its a fun project). The mornings are spent wrapped up a little longer, sipping hot cups of coffee, and playing in footie pajamas. The days always warm up, but we are loving the crisp morning air.




3 weeks old

Molly Francis,

You are three weeks old now. I didn’t have much time during your pregnancy to really be quiet with you. It’s been such a busy year for us – moving, adjusting, finding a home for you. But last night you laid in my arms and your little hand wrapped so sweetly around my pointer finger. And all was quiet. It was a moment I have been waiting a long time for. I’m so happy that you called me home for so long. I love you little lady.





We’ve been going on walks every day lately. Short ones, longer ones, multiple ones a day. It’s nice because Eleanor loves sitting in her little car talking up a storm about everything she sees and of course waving hello to all the neighbors we pass. It’s nice for me because I love discovering our new little neighborhood. Its perfect for Nathan because he admires the old homes and picks up trash as we go.

There are some really beautiful homes in East Durham and on the flip side lots of homes abandoned and in ruins. We love this part of town because it reminds us a bit of Chicago – the city bus drives by, there are interesting neighbors, people say hello, wave, introduce themselves, and as poor and in need many of these people are they care about building a community.







In the last three days some sort of negative mojo has been swirling around us. At least that’s how it feels. Let’s see….

1. our washer stopped working (thankfully it was the one that came with the house – its a double stack washer dryer from the 70s! We have a newer model but because of the way the laundry room is built we can only put our new washing machine in there which means no dryer. So we are getting to know the clothes line. But let’s just say how inconvenient that is with two babies and lots of laundry).

2. The dishwasher actually fell out of the cabinet on to Eleanor. It only landed on part of her leg and didn’t hurt her thank god. But I have never been more shaken… All of my ceramic mixing bowls also came crashing down and barely missed her head. It was close and scary!

3. Nathan’s electric meter stopped working. He’s used it three times.

4. I broke a mirror minutes ago getting out of the shower. (can someone dispell the 7 years bad luck theory for me, please?)

5. Eleanor slipped while in the kitchen. The tv remote that was in her hand went flying into the dog water bowl. Bye bye remote.

I guess it could all just be a coincidence. Juggling two fussy babies with no time to breathe (Eleanor hasn’t been napping very long and Molly wants to be held all the time) will make things appear a little wild at times. But my goodness it’s weird! And I really don’t need 7 years of bad luck. So any theories or no theories at all that you can share would be very comforting at the moment.


So many people say Eleanor and Molly look just alike, but I see so many little features that make them each their own. Molly is the first photo, Eleanor the second.



Finding A Rhythm


I think I’m going to have to start making dates. Me dates, Nathan dates, Eleanor dates, Molly dates. I’m getting bored. And I’m getting anxiety about the redundancy of every day. This anxiety leads into me being even more anxious about going somewhere alone (without Nathan). The first week of being home as a family of four was amazing. There were many times Nathan and I would look at each other and say how awesome it was, or how we wish it could always be like this. We make a good team. But then week two came which means more exhaustion and less sleep. And now week three. I’m feeling on edge. And I’m also feeling guilty. Guilty that I can’t give anyone my undivided attention.

My mom will be here tomorrow which will help tremendously. And Nathan’s birthday is Friday and I have a fun little date for us planned (sans kiddos) on Saturday. So that’s something to look forward to. I guess really I just wish I knew if I was doing all of this right. I knew as much as I was looking forward to my maternity leave it would be nothing like the first go-round. And it shouldn’t be. It’s beautiful and messy in so many new ways.

I just need to learn to breathe, to accept and to know that in all due time a rhythm will be created.

Molly Francis, 2 weeks

Happy 2 weeks Molly Francis!
You are getting bigger by the minute. You are such a good nurser, and demand to eat as soon as you wake up. You make some funny little piggy noises when you are hungry and if I’m not fast enough you will start to cry pretty loudly. You had your first serious growth spurt non-stop feeding day yesterday! I’m hoping I can figure out a way to nurse you in a baby carrier so I can still get things done and play with your sister. You also have had no trouble at all taking a bottle from Daddy! This makes us all very happy especially since Daddy loves to cuddle you.

Last week you went with us to see the goats at Central Park, the Raleigh Flea Market, and your first East Durham Neighborhood meeting. You were a quiet sleepy bug through it all. You also met your grandpa, Aunt Heather and your cousins Jacob and Griffin!

You are doing really good at sleeping at night with two three hour stretches and a two hour stretch if I’m lucky. I’m trying real hard to not bring you to bed in the morning but the last two days I’ve been so tired I gave in.

Your sister loves to hold you. I was watching Eleanor cradle your head and was hit by this amazing feeling from your sisterly bond. I told your dad this thing is so much bigger than I thought at times. We gave you life but we also made two people sisters. It humbles me.




We love you baby Molly.

Sisterly Love


If I Didn’t Say It Already…

the days are going by too fast.
