alovelybean so much goodness was crammed into this day. also sleeplessness and a lot of coffee, but mostly just goodness. Christmas as a parent is magical in ways that cannot be explained. but if I had to try: a consecutive string of tear worthy moments that are both nostalgic and unknown at the same time. || "Christmas, my child, is love in action.

alovelybean oh my goodness, these are the treasures that lorelai brought home from daycare this week. I am obviously going to be the kind of parent that has boxes and boxes of these stashed in the attic forever. 1w

  •   mary7500 @alovelybean I'm not sure if you remember me, but I sent you an email at the end of last summer, basically asking you how to pick up the pieces after having a miscarriage. Your return email was honest and heartfelt and gave me such hope. I can't help but smile now looking at how things have turned out. You have an adorable daughter and my son just turned 6 months old. After the heartbreak and the storm, it feels incredible. Happy holidays to you guys. 1w
  •   alovelybean @mary7500 hello, friend! I indeed remember very well and it is so great to hear from you. I think that those memories are so vivid.. heartbreak is always so vividly remembered. I can't tell you the joy it brings me to hear about your sweet boy!!! such a blessing!! thank you so much for saying hello. your comment truly made my day. happy holidays to your sweet family! 1w

alovelybean lorelai mabel, you are one year old. sweet girl, how I love you!! you are constantly running and we are constantly chasing after you. you love spaghetti and you have such a good memory, always remembering where we hide things and where things go. you love to be by mama and papa and sometimes cry when we don't hold you. this should worry me, but secretly I love it. you talk all the time and are very passionate about it, shouting "DA!" while pointing and giggling. you have the sweetest soul. this past year with you has been the best of my life and every day brings a new treasure. happy first birthday my love. 2w

alovelybean very emotional as I lay here in bed, not only sicker than quite possibly ever before in my life (I'm dramatic), but also reminiscing of exactly one year ago tonight when my water broke and we rushed to the hospital to meet our baby. little did I know of the 26 and a half hours that stretched out before us. part of me wonders if that's why the pain of labor is SO much, because if we only felt the love we might burst from its strength. • night night to my beautiful 11-month-old baby girl once more. your adventure is only beginning. love, mama 2w
