Indulge Me A Little






It's been a long week with this little girl recovering from the family cold. All of the sudden she needs to be attached to me all day, can only nap for 30 minutes at a time, and seems to drool her weight in saliva before noon requiring the both of us to change clothes at least three times. She's still all smiles between it all but this girl is finally wearing me out! I'll take everything she gives me though, because being her Mama will always be my second favorite job. Second to loving her daddy, of course.

Look for me soon! And here's a sneak peek of what I've been SLOWLY working on this week.

xoxo,
Rachel

Anna said...

Oh what a precious little cupcake..just adorable!
yes...they are hard work..especially when not well..but I wouldnt change my job as a mummy for the world.
I wouldnt worry too much about the drooling..it doesnt last too long..usually a sign of little teeth to come. How old is she?

Louise said...

Awwwww poor liitle girl and poor Mama!! Sounds like her litle teeth are coming up! My Huck Finn got his first two teeth at 15 weeks so be on the look out. LOVE her outfit!! FAB!

Sophie said...

I hope everything ok for you soon. It's really bringing back some of my memories of taking care the little one.
It's hard but it's worth for everything.
Take care! Good luck.

off topic but think you are one of the best to ask.. I am getting my first sewing machine this weekend & wonder, what do you recommend for a first project??

Bri Bri said...

Your kids are so cute! I love her facial expressions! Thanks for posting pictures of your beautiful family!

Ashley Ann said...

Oh Rachel! Stop killing me with cute babies and vintage linen rainbows.

Do you thrift your sheets or buy them on etsy/ebay? I've found a few good ones in thrift stores, but you always have the loveliest sheets!

With Love, Jamie said...

Oh my goodness, cute everything in those pics!!! But of course, mostly that sweet little girl!! :)

PeaceLoveApplesauce said...

Aww.. Teeny foots pictures.. precious!

kelly* said...

i love how much she looks like my neice did when she was a baby. She has the same giant brown eyes and similar skin tone. I hope she gets your curls...my poor daughter was stuck with my pin straight couldn't curl it if i tried hair...but you know the grass is always greener.
Hope she feels better soon!
<3

Anna said...

she is so precious! you could totally be a baby stylist. that probably doesn't exist but you should make it up :)

Jaimie said...

aw she's so precious!

i love all your fabrics, seriously!

Alli (One Pearl Button) said...

Adorable photos, and I really appreciate that you consider being a mom your 2nd favorite job. I don't have kids, but if my husband and I ever decide to, I want to make sure that we work to keep our priorities in that order.

lalatika said...

heyjenrenee said...

Robin said...

Wow, she really looks like you. She's beautiful. Hang in there. Before you know it she'll be graduating from college (just like mine is).

robin said...

it's the little froggy legs that get me every time!

deedee said...

Your daughter is a dream. Your blog is fantastic and your creative skills extremely apparent.
The only part of this post that made me raise a brow was prioritising your children and your husband. Maybe we have a different attitude in Europe. I love, adore, cherish my husband but my kids, well my kids are the centre of my world. It's an animal instinct...

RachelDenbow said...

Deedee,
I appreciate how you feel about your kids and that you were wondering how I could prioritize my family. I was taught at a young age that if I lost focus of my marriage because I was so wrapped up in my kids that they would eventually suffer more. It's more about nurturing the source of our family's strength (our marriage) so that the whole family can be strong, so they can feel secure, so I can feel balanced as a woman and not just a mother.

I think that kind of perspective on it may help you see where I'm coming from. It's because I love my children so much that I keep my marriage strong.

deedee said...

Totally see your perspective and your love of your family shines through.
I am wrapped up in my kids but am (I hope!) also an intelligent, working woman and wife so don't have the chance to lose site of anything-just juggle it all as best I can!
My parents also set me up with strong values. Their marriage is still going strong after 40 years, 4 children and 7 grand children so are always a source of inspiration for me.
Look forward to reading your next thought provoking and visually stunning blog.

RachelDenbow said...

Deedee,
Our families are lucky to have us! ;)

euphoria said...

wow, these are adorable!! please show a peek of what you are making with these beautiful fabrics!
