I should be unpacking ...

 instead of playing with blocks.

 but then I might have missed this laugh,

 this proud speller (who hopefully has a decent enough vocabulary as well),

and Sophia's new castle.

Then I think, the unpacking will always be there but these times will not. 

We are loving our new house.  I think we will be here for a long time.  Watch our kids grow up here. I know that we will look back on this time and marvel at how little they all were.  (It's entirely possible that I am having a little trouble with Lakshman getting bigger and no longer being a newborn.  Ok, more than a little.) 

I know this is cliche, but I love them being little.  Time feels like it is rushing past me.  It makes me happy and sad all at the same time.  It is so good but I know it will be gone soon. 

And yes, there are good times ahead, but can I help wanting time to stop just for a little bit?

Yes, we have so many plans right now.  We had the house painted and kitchen updated a little.  (The walls were green before, ok? Yuck!) And now I want to build shelves in the playroom.  Maybe a dress up rack.  Or even a teepee and reading nook?  Hopefully I will get at least one those projects done but for now I feel like I need to hit the pause button. It will come together but I have to take my time and enjoy the journey a little bit too.


  1. Congrats on the new house!! and yes, sometimes you just have to slow down and savor the does all go by sooo fast! :) Evie

  2. Playing with the kiddos sounds like much more fun than unpacking. There is nothing like a growing baby to draw attention to how quickly everyone else is growing up. I find myself desperate to hold on to my kiddos' childhoods, just a tad longer...okay, a LOT longer.

  3. Congrats on the new house! Wish we had a remote to pause time to stop the kids from growing up fast!

  4. So glad you've found a house to make your home! Have fun enjoying your little ones, the chores can wait. :)
