Where does the time go?

It's been almost 4 months since our last post, so it seems to be about the right time to blog again. Since having a second child, I simultaneously feel like I have all the time in the world and like I have absolutely no time to do anything. Does anyone know what I mean? I'll be home with the girls all day and not have anything planned, so I think to myself, "I'll probably have a little bit of time to blog today," but then the next thing I know, Sean is home from work and asking what we've done that day. As I try to think back on our day, there are many times when the only activities I can come up with are feeding the girls and cleaning up toys. Seriously? In all that time, I only did two things?! (Granted, I did those two things over and over again).

Anyway, I am forcing myself to sit down and write this while Serafina is napping and Tilly is coloring. My mom has requested more pictures, so here are some of my favorite pictures from February and March. Next up: Our California Trip (which occurred 3 months ago...)

Ready for church on Valentine's Day

Green eggs on St. Patrick's Day

One of Serafina's favorite expressions from the first few months

Making pancakes with Dad

She gets this from me. I always sleep with my arms floating in the air.

Tilly had fun with stickers one day...

...and then Serafina joined in the fun

I don't know what to put as a caption for this one. It is just a cute and silly face from Serafina.

P.S. Matilda is currently singing a song which includes these lyrics: "I don't like green ham, ham and cheese, tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrooooooowwwww, it's a small world all all all, la la la la la laaaaaa."

You've got some pretty cute kids! Do you call Serafina 'Serafina' or is there a nickname like Tilly?

Yay for pictures and a post!!! I really, really want to see our girlies together. It'll happen someday. I just hope they're not old enough that it's awkward and they think "our moms want us to be friends ... this is weird." (did that ever happen to you when you were a teen?) Regardless, they're beauties. I laughed aloud at the caption with the floating arms.

hahaha --- sounds awesome! And Tilly sounds like she's quite the entertainer. :)

Just curious. Do you ever feel guilty? I feel guilty all the time when I think I didn't get much "done" for the day. it's been quite a struggle. But then again, just being a Mom is busy in and of itself. Anyway, I don't know what I'm saying -- it's midnight. You're doing a great job. Glad to see you are all doing well!
