everything's in bloom

Happy Friday everyone! We made it! 

Has anyone else been really enjoying the spring weather lately? I feel like everything is in bloom (the trees, the flowers, my baby bump). Last night we went for a walk, even though I was more than ready to lay on the couch, and it was magical outside. It was warm and green, breezy and beautiful in our neighborhood.

Chloe has recently learned how to ride her bike and we had to take a few turns down our neighborhood drive last night. Chris was at a work event and so it was just me, running beside her as she got started and nervously watching as she figured out how to brake. Thank god she got the braking part down because I couldn't keep up with her. I'm sure it was quite comical to watch a 7 month pregnant lady huffing and puffing behind her daughter down the road.

This spring Elinor has also recently gotten good at her bicycle. Last summer she couldn't quite figure out the peddling part, now she's tearing down the sidewalk with her training wheels. Unfortunately we've been working so much with Chloe that we haven't had a lot of time to take her on her bike at a slightly slower pace.

It's so hard to strike a perfect balance of time and attention with each kid. I worry a lot that Elinor gets left behind as Chloe gains a new ability or skill. It makes me nervous to add a third kid into the mix! I know we'll figure it out, because, well, we have too. Also, Elinor does pretty well at keeping up with her sister and adding an extra layer of sass to everything she does.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Sunday is Mother's Day. In a surprising turn of events, my mother already has her Mother's Day gift. I actually got my act together early this year and didn't have to pay extra to ship something overnight. That's a big win for me.

Don't forget to give your mama a hug or call her up and tell her she's awesome!
