A few good things

Time is starting to fly. Everyone told me it would when Amelie was first born, and as I fed for the millionth time that day then tried to get Amelie to sleep for the millionth and one time, then sat holding her because that was the only way she would sleep, messy house be damned, I seriously doubted their sanity. But then Amelie grew older, started feeding far less and sleeping on her own, and I can attest that they were right. The time is flying. It's bittersweet. Amelie only gets more fun, but everything is going so quickly. I'm scared I'll forget what it was like and what it is like. I swear, having a baby is just one big mass of contradictory feelings, all the time. Oh and guilt. Contradictory feelings and guilt. 

Oh, and love. SO MUCH LOVE. Look at this button! Our little Amelie, five months old, coolest baby ever.

Sunrise in Kingsland. We had a few days of awful weather but happily, summer has returned for a final hurrah, with cooler autumn nights to make us all sleep better.

Matchy matchy with Amelie, right down to pink sunglasses.

Wore my red lipstick for the first time since Amelie was born, and regained a tiny bit more of myself in the process. Gave Amelie a nice red cheek also, thanks to a forgetful kiss.

Enjoying a teddy bear's picnic at Amelie's baby sensory class. Here she is doing her usual thing, watching what everyone else is doing and ignoring my silly singing and playing!
