Back in the Saddle

My three month maternity leave is quickly coming to an end. What a wonderful fall this has been! Everyone has told me to soak up this time, because I will never have just one baby again. And soak I have. Sappy and sentimental thoughts about my daughter to come in her three month update post in a couple days... the meantime, my thoughts have turned to work and what opportunities I will pursue once the holidays are over.

Wanted to share my first post-baby freelance client - Habitat for Hope. An amazing organization run by wonderful people with huge hearts...I am beyond thrilled to join them in spreading their message of hope.

Ever since my time at Caris, I have been compelled by the fact that image is everything (regardless of whether we want that to be the case, it's true), and there are so many non-profits who deserve to have a great image, but are limited by resources on many levels.

Can't wait to share more about my experience with Habitat for Hope and the folks down in Memphis...really looking forward to working with them!

Big and Bigger

Something must have been in the water around this time last year...families in three of four houses in a row on our street had baby girls within two weeks of each other! It has been so much fun getting to know the other moms better, and great to have people to take walks with, have play dates with and compare notes!

Jacqueline and Charlotte came over one afternoon last week. We enjoyed the company very much. The girls are already very curious about each other.

Hard to tell from the picture, but both of them were going to town sucking their hands at the same time. It was so cute.

Oops! That didn't work so well!

That's better.

Maggie was very skeptical about this whole holding hands thing, but humored us, anyways.

Rollin, rollin, rollin!

I can't even get the camera out fast enough once I put her on her stomach. Oh we go...

Auntie Rachel

I was delighted to introduce Maggie to Rachel this weekend. It was a wonderful weekend, complete with shopping, movies, A White Christmas, hot chocolate and of course, lots and lots of cuddles and coos.

Thanksgiving...why did this take me so long??

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with my family...even with a slight set back of pink eye the day before. It was made even better by the fact we did not have to travel, due to my parents' recent relocation to Glen Ellyn! The only thing missing was my sister and her new husband.
