Fills My Heart

Even though I'm struggling through being at work and not with my sweet girl.

It really makes things a little bit easier when I get kind pictures of Mary Margaret having fun at the ladies houses.

This is from Amy

Wow... Look at that belly...
And, Yes... those ARE the 6 month clothes and Baby Leg Warmers..

She watches MM most Mondays. Her little man Emmett and MM play, and she gets great sleep there.
Must the very calm and understanding nature of Amy's house. I can't ensure her that with Buckley trying to maintain his spot as the "Golden Child" in our house.

Molly takes care of Mary Margaret on Tuesday, Thursdays and the occasional Friday

Molly has two precious little girls of her own who love to "play" with MM, they read books, love on her (read: pat her head and gently poke her in the eyes), help with back/tummy time and feed her bottles.

They love giving her hugs and open mouth kisses, waving goodbye to her as we go down the driveway, and dislike wearing pants (so they wear really cute dresses and skirt from Crew Cuts)

We are extremely lucky for these families to welcome MM and our family into their homes. It makes me feel so much better that we can do this, compared to putting her in traditional daycare (plus is more cost effective and we can help our friends out!)

Mary Margaret and Charlie were reading my latest blog post last night post-dinner pre-bath time.

Ok... we're half way through the week... we can all make it!



  1. Oh I can so relate to having to work and leave your baby at home! It stinks, but it's so much easier when you have people whom you trust that are loving your baby! We love our baby's nanny, she treats him as if he were her own :)

  2. what a sweet baby & cute blog!

  3. Hi! I found your blog via Camp Patton. I love your story. I will be in the same situation - married to a Catholic but a Protestant (except I'm the one in seminary - at Southeastern in Wake Forest, NC). Right now we go to both a Catholic and a Baptist service every Sunday. We go to St. Catherine's, but no one has ever said hi to us... not that we've been trying to say hello either, so greeting fail all around I guess. I kind of feel the same way, that I'll eventually end up in the Church, but I still wrestle with some of the same doctrines that you mentioned.

    Anyway, great blog, thanks for sharing!

    1. Hi Sarah,
      Well I promise, if you come to Sacred Heart (and we recognize each other of course) we will say "Hi". I was like that with St. Luke in N. Raleigh. No offense to anyone that attends there. But I enjoy the "vibe" of Sacred Heart more!


    2. Haha, thanks! I don't know if we will be able to get our act together to get down there on a Sunday. St Catherine's is 5 minutes away from our house and we only on time about 50% of the time.
