Project 52 | FOURTEEN

Metadata: f/2.8, 1/125, ISO 5000


I’ve had two nights with one three hour stretch of sleep each night. Now I feel like I can conquer the world.

(it’s the little things…)


& now I can see a little bit more joy amidst the craziness. & one of those overwhelming joys is the behavior modeling sweet caroline is doing all day long. She is constantly loving on her baby. “Cry Baby” is her baby of choice…always. She speaks to cry baby like I speak to everett. She nurses her when she is hungry (from her belly button, which she calls her “udder boobie.” I love it.) She touches her brother like I touch him. She soothes him like I soothe him. It’s the most heartwarming thing I think I have experienced as a parent. I could watch her be a little mommy all day. & sometimes I need her–because oddly enough, she can often soothe everett when I can’t. They are very in tune with one another.

This is our new favorite thing to do together. She loves wearing her cry baby just like I wear everett every day. We have matching Moby Wraps. (I LOVE my Moby) & they even make a Mini Moby for the kiddies too. :) I can’t stand the cuteness.

Seems like just yesterday I was wearing a teeny tiny caroline around the house. How time flies.

& I am more of a babywearer this time around. I did write an article about all of the carriers I’ve tried. My two favorites are still the Moby & the Ergo. I wear them all the time. I am currently riding a Moby wave. I’m sure I’ll jump back on the Ergo soon. Just depends on my mood. ;)

  • Mallory - I love watching a little girl imitate her mom. It’s such a big responsibility we take on as moms, to always strive to be the best person we know how as our little ones watch, but it’s so rewarding at the same time! I hope you are able to get even more sleep soon!ReplyCancel

  • Joanna - Hi Shawna, I didn’t want to post this on FB so I decided to leave a quick comment here about your post-baby weight loss blog: My husband and I would like to start a family in the next year or so and your post gave me the motivation and confidence to lose 20 lbs in the last month and half so that I can be fit before getting pregnant. I really appreciate your story and the impact that it has had on my health. Thank you :o)ReplyCancel
