our baby books.

I fell in love with this baby book by Nikki McClure, a Pacific NW artist who does absolutely beautiful woodcuts. Many of my friends have her prints hanging in their homes - and every time I see one, it makes me feel warm and cozy inside. I asked for two books, one for each girl, and one of my friends gifted them both to me. I honestly haven't written in either of them yet, but I keep making mental notes. And, the great thing is, the book is more of a freestyle record keeping - blank pages for pictures or just to jot down little messages. I love that.

Today, the girls are three months old. They are absolutely beautiful, and their personalities continue to emerge, and I love watching their faces as the world registers in their bright little eyes. I don't really know where they are on the "benchmarks" list, because their adjusted age is anywhere from six to eight weeks, since they were born over a month early. But I do know that they are smart, strong, and growing more alert every day. That's enough for me. Oh, and the smiles. Any mama would be proud of these smiles.
You can check out Ms. McClure's artwork and books here, including All in a Day, which I received as gift at my book shower.
