Life as it happens

I don't have a whole lot of words for this post. I think that the pictures sum it up. We have been living life, adjusting to life with two, although it does not seem like quite as big an adjustment as I was thinking.
BellaRose adores Hollings. I am SO thankful for that report.
Hollings at her 2 week check up and was 8lbs, she is such a little peanut. Still not to BellaRose's size at birth, but we are close.

The first bath!

BellaRose helping with the 1st bath and "skating" with daddy in the snow. This snow was last week and was the prettiest snow of the year by far. Huge flakes!

The second bath, much more pleasant

Family outing to the woods. It was so wonderful to get the whole family outside.

Isn't it funny how it can be so snowy in March and a few days later be sunny and it's almost gone- the perfect kind of snow! I love the picture of BR in the Moses basket. Hollings is so stinkin' cute in those stripe-y pants :-) and you look gorgeous- as usual :-)

awwww, that first picture is so very very very sweet. It so fun to see your sweet family, makes me miss you so much more.

I want to play!

I love all the pics and I love the good report on how BellaRose adores Hollings. We need a BR baby pic compared to a Hollings baby pic please....they look just alike right?

Good post! Pictures of everyone! I can't believe how little Hollings is! She weighs less than Noah's birth weight too - it gives me hope that they won't all be this big! BellaRose is the sweetest sister. I love that you've all been out in the woods already. The warm weather is coming!!!

things seem to be so great for you guys. i love these pictures. the second bath looks much more pleasant. BR is so precious helping so much, she is such a good big sis.
glad we had such beautiful weather to get out in the woods!

I am so glad that life with two is easier than you thought.. that is something that scares me about having your second.
Can't wait to see Hollings in person in about a month! She and BR are both so precious!

I like your movie star face in that last picture:) very "the paparazzi just got the first pic of the mother out with her baby" I like it We can use it for our Real housewives of Black Mountain add.
Love all the pictures, Love that BR has so much fun with her Daddy too!

So happy that you are doing well!
I remember thinking how much easier it was to go from one to two kids than from zero to one.

Can't wait to see y'all when you get back to the gym. Take your time and stay in until we are out of the cold weather and sickness season.

Great pictures! So happy to see that things are going well with you guys. You guys have handled this transition so gracefully. BellaRose is no exception, she is being such a great big sister. I love how she said "This is my Hollings" when we came over the other day. What a sweetie!

I love the pictures Sunday!! You look beautiful and those girls are just precious. I love the black and white of BRosey!! And those stripe pants on Hollings make me think of B when you took pictures. The one of her in her 2nd bath is really lovely!

Aww - what a sweet family. I'm so impressed that you all 4 could get out in the woods for an adventure together. You are seriously making this 'mom of 2' thing look really easy. I have my doubts that things are going to go so smoothly here:o)
