Is it really just mid-April? In my heart it feels like June already, or late May at least. My girl Lupine has garden fever and has already planted beans, peas, and bushels of flowers and herbs. Many might not survive what May will bring, but she is optimistic and it's catchy. It's hard for us to refrain from putting our entire garden in – with these glorious days strung one after another like summertime.
The kids too feel the growing tingle in their mind and in their bodies. I watch as they grow and stretch and expand into new parts of their minds and new parts of themselves each day.
They are bending, growing, expanding.
I stand here and watch in wonder at it all.

think it's awesome that Kangaroo Korner has donated so many pouches!! I
love that extra thoughtfulness because as a low-income mom to be myself
I am so excited to try babywearing but definitely wondering about
fitting it into the budget. I am glad they made it possible for so many
other families 🙂

and Papa can't snuggle you

You're snuggled in close,
