mother’s day.

the night before mother’s day, eleanor woke up almost every 45 minutes. i think we were all pretty confused by it, including eleanor. the night was hard and exhausting for all of us and i kept thinking, “mother’s day. yeah, right…”
by 4:30 in the morning, we all gave up trying to sleep and found ourselves in the kitchen having toast and warm milk together as a family. and while it was mother’s day and i was wide awake and exhausted at 4-something in the morning, it kind of hit me while i cradled eleanor there in the kitchen and watched josh butter our toast… that this is my life now, as a mother. and it isn’t so bad. sure, i’m always a little sleep deprived and stuff like that, but this mothering gig? for the most part it’s actually pretty wonderful.
*ps. i feel the need to disclose that i did get to nap for the majority of sunday morning while josh took eleanor out. and considering that josh didn’t sleep much the night before either, that meant a lot to me. so thank you, josh. i love you.

  3. I second the request for your ebelskiver recipe (pronounced abel-skeever). We used to have these all the time when I was a kid. I now have my own pan but have only used it twice and the results were not great. Yours look so flaky and light, though! PLEASE SHARE YOUR RECIPE!?*?

  4. Happy late Mother's Day! I'm so excited for your family & the new baby!!

    I don't have any babies yet, but I have lots of friends who are expecting and the bamboo wall clock would look so cute in their nursery! (:

  5. Your hair! Amazing!

  6. Woah, what a day. And what a night! I hope you've had plenty of sleep since then. I am in awe of how good and healthy you look, too. Looking forward to your news!
