Baby Jada's Birth

I feel like I've been running from one thing to the next for the past two months.  Life got ultra crazy somewhere along the way and I have lists of things to do.  Tis the season ... but it's not really that season yet....  I guess I thought that I'd have more time for things I wanted to do since I'm not homeschooling my girls, but ... ha ha ha ... the joke is on me!

Two months & one day ago, I got a text to my phone around 4:30am letting me know that my younger sister had been admitted to the hospital because she was in active labor.  She wanted me to photograph the birth of her baby girl.  Of course when one gets a text like that, sleeping a little more is out of the question.  I got up, cleaned 3 bathrooms, showered, got my girls off to school, took my Turkey to my mom's house, stopped at Starbucks for some muffins, and still made it to the hospital with hours to spare.

About 15 minutes before noon, the real action began and my sister quickly & effortlessly (at least that's how it appeared from my perspective :) ), brought a sweet, healthy baby girl into this world.

Artwork by Peacock

I'm a first-time Kindergarten mom, so I'm loving all the little things that Peacock brings home from school.  Today I had a parent-teacher conference with Peacock's teacher.  Her teacher had such great things to say about her, but one of my favorite things was seeing a picture that Peacock drew and "labeled" (although neither her teacher or I could figure out what she had written under her picture ... but now that I'm thinking about it, maybe it said "Princess Tiana") at the beginning of the school year and a picture that she drew recently with SO much more detail and a complete sentence that had all the words spelled correctly except two, but they were spelled phonetically and much easier to figure-out.

In August, Peacock brought home these cats that she drew.  At that point, I didn't know she knew how to draw such cute cats.  I love her funny little cats and they still hang on my fridge.

This week she brought home a self-portrait ... I laughed when I saw the swing chains and the blue swing seat ... just like the ones at Bushka's house!
