take five

Oh, hello.


Five things I've learned from being a mother of two (so far) ...


1. You will call each child by the other child's name. A lot. 


2. If you AND your two girls are all crying at the same time, your husband will laugh good naturedly whilst simultaneously praying your third child will be a boy. (Not that this has ever happened to me.)


3. Sometimes I pray (like, literally pray) no one will ever knock on my door for fear that they'll see my house between designated "pick up after Maggie" times. Or, you know, for fear that they'll catch me in my pajamas. At 11 a.m. 


4. Matching sister PJs are ah-dorable. But if both children are indeed babies — and you attempt to take a picture of them whilst being alone (rookie alert!) — it's so not gonna happen. 


See ya, sister.


5. My heart almost can't handle all this love. It's kind of totally insane.

I LOVE how much you LOVE your sweet babies. These are two lucky little ladies to have such an adoring and wonderful mom!

Love those matchy jammies. You are such a great Mom Bri. You document and love your girls so very much. They are indeed lucky.

I am dying at #2. It is so funny and so true. I love this post and love seeing photos of those two adorbsies. I remember trying to take photos of Abigael and Maddie as babies together and many of them are of Abi innocently sitting practically on top of Madeleine. Good times.

I didn't realize how much I needed a picture of the two of them together until I saw this one. I LOVE them. (And you.)

So sweet! I'm also in love with the matching jammies...it's too fun and too cute! They are SO sweet and so lucky to have you as their mom. p.s. I'm sure none of us have EVER cried while both babies are crying! Love you!
