Lucky and Blessed

"Luckiest Girl Ever" dress from the Prasts. 
Love our little shamrocks and we are blessed to have them in our lives! Hope you had a fun St. Patty's Day!

We woke up to Jackson's toy basket topsy-turvy and little green footprints by our doors! Jackson discovered some gold coins and a new box of sidewalk chalk. Those leprechauns sure are was raining today so using the chalk wasn't an option!

"Lil Shamrock" from the McKerchers...Jackson has his "Kiss Me, I'm Irish"  t-shirt.
For breakfast Sierra scrambled some green eggs and dinner included corned beef, cabbage, green mashed potatoes and shamrock (green) milk!

Another week passes too fast! I finally put Riley's birth announcements in the mail and started writing thank you notes. I feel so behind with those kinds of things but am spending my time nursing every two hours, cuddling my wee ones, and enjoying Jackson time. Riley is sleeping 5-7 hours a night so we all feel lucky!!!
Catching up on a good book!

I took Jackson to see The Lorax and we had so much fun eating popcorn and viewing the movie...alone! Riley slept, ate, and slept. 
I also came down with the evil mastitis again this week but was able to catch it early enough that I didn't need the antibiotics and used natural remedies (plus extra sleep) to get rid of the nasty infection. Raw potato slices in your bra, anyone?

70 degrees outside and no chance of rain...gotta wear the boots, though!
Having fun during the previews!
Wednesday morning at the movies...a great place to nurse!

5 weeks expressive! My favorite word is, "Ah-goo!"


  1. What cute little shamrocks you have! Sorry about the mastitis. What a nightmare. I can't believe your little princess is already sleeping up to 7 hours. Way to go Momma!

  2. Thanks, Meghan! I think she sleeps well because she is a chubster! I will do a post about the evil M in the future because it sucks everything out of you but it can be prevented and treated without drugs.
