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.
