The first time around, motherhood ran over me like a heavy-loaded truck. I stood there, hit and bleeding, on the interjunction of "life that was" and "life that was going to be" for a while in a daze. I had not seen it coming, the way everything utterly and completely changes forever. This time around, mothering my new baby has been smooth sailing. Peaceful.
Sisie is my little gift to me.
Review. The renovation is in full swing. Which means there are three half-naked, beer-bellied men on my roof every day. (Fé and I feed them ice-cream and cookies to be sure they are happy and icentivized to make my house look pretty). It also means I spend too much time reading interior design mags. We found some nice dresses on the flea market for 2 € each. 2 € I thought! What a find! When I got home, I realized they had stains all over. I'm still learning the dos and don'ts of thrifting. We got a package from the US this week, with the loveliest gifts inside. That book, how very fitting. I am Mrs. Bird! (Thank you Christina!) My mom knitted these striped pants three years ago for Fé, but she never fit inside (she was one big baby). Now they fit Sisie. They are the prettiest thing. Danke Mama!
Oh, and Sisie has chickenpox, the poor little one. We left our house a complete mess and ran away to Casa di Mama. I'll be resting here for a while. Blog updates will be sporadic for the next month (haha, Isa, but they always are!). I hope we get to go to Germany on Friday (meanpox, meanpox, I tell ya).
Some links ("thises"?)...
I like this blog (via kleinFORMAT)
I'm feeling this kitchen. And this table. And this DIY lamp (via). Too much?
I'm so making this necklace.
... that first mobile... oh... preferrably in this little girl's room.
more easy, good spinach...
