Pause




Oh man... we are sick up in this joint. We have been truly lucky not to come down with too many illnesses in Little Smith's fourteen months... but every single time it happens I am absolutely leveled by how being sick derails life and makes everything seem insurmountable. I'm a baby, I know, but when my baby is uncomfortable it breaks my heart and I don't want to do anything but hold him and let him cry on my shoulder.


So we have mountains of laundry and diapers to fold, food that needs cooking, mail that needs sorting, half composed posts (some good ones like our birth story and house tour of the nursery)... and it's just all going to have to stay on pause until we can find our smiles again.


In times like this I am so in awe of all the mama's out there with more than one kid who have to balance every one's different needs and can't just have the world come to a stop when their baby's sick... or who work and have deadlines on top of fevers. I am still learning to juggle everything and at the moment my hands are full. Hoping to find my balance again soon.

  1. Hope you feel better soon, lovely lady. Oh, and we have piles of laundry to do too, but we're not even sick.

  2. Get well soon Smiths! Can't wait for your upcoming posts, but take as much of a pause as you need (obviously). We have yet to deal with sickness (knock on wood), but I know how much teething pain completely rocks our world and throws us all out of balance. I'm sure sickness is that times ten, so I wish you lots of r&r, warm soup, cuddling under the blankets and hopefully you'll all be feeling top notch again soon!

  3. So sorry. I hope everyone feels better soon. I am ready to see your nursery. What kind of camera do you have? Do you have a wide angle lens? just curious because your pictures look AWESOME.

  4. You couldn't have put any part of this post better. Especially how heartbreaking it is when the little one is sick. Get better soon!
