I love my life.

She's what we wear

Babywearing Slideshow
Check it out!

We fit right in:

birth announcements, thank-yous, housework......

all on my list for today! Will I really get any of this done? Possibly not, we'll just have to wait and see!

Maggy is growing fast. She is so mellow and sweet, until she needs a diaper change or is hungry. Fletch tells everyone that when she cries, "our house is the loudest one around!"
Maggy's first Easter (shamefully I think this is the best picture I got of her out of the sling that day)

She loves the sling, I really don't put her down at all any more. If she is not eating or being changed, she is on my chest, or someone else's:
Aunt Harvest and Sleepy Maggy

This is what the Easter Bunny brought this year. My son, the very sweetest in the world saw me working on the pink bear in his basket and the bunny rabbit in Maggy's for two days before Easter. He acctually told me he wanted a pink bear when I told him I was making a bunny for her. I had intended on making him a bunny similar to the bear. So, come Easter morning, he searches out the hidden baskets. When he sees the bear he says, "this is just what I always wanted!"
My heart melts.
When he pulls the bunny out of Maggy's basket, "Oh, how cute! Look Mom! You don't have to make these for us anymore, the Easter Bunny just brought them!"
And my heart melts again.

The Hunt!

Lastly, my beautiful children waiting for the Easter Bunny.

Our First Outing

Saturday came with a bit of cabin fever. We decided with Fletch bouncing off the walls to head out of the house, over to the coast. We had a lovely lunch then went to the Morro Bay Natural History Museum:
Maggy's first car trip

Interesting animals

Morro Rock

Snoozing in the sling

Just a little snack please

Maggy's First Bath

Just like with Fletch, Jim gave Maggy her first bath - with the help of her big brother:

Checking out big brother's scuba gear!

She LOVES to have her head rubbed:

We're loving every moment of our new life.
Maggy is settled in, nursing like a champ and listens intently when Fletch talks to her.

Magnolia Marie Yost

Just some pictures for now.....

Just about an hour after birth.

Big brother Fletch just sung her
to sleep, he "is just so excited to have a little sister!"

Late afternoon and
everyone is very tired.

We're all Madly in Love.
