I feel like in April I both laid around in pajamas all day and ran ragged. I’m not sure how that’s possible but it’s true!! It was a whirlwind of a month and also a really sad month because we were remembering my daddy. It was pretty terrible actually, rendnering whst we were doing a year ago. Ontopigthsg I was tired and hormonal so I was pretty much a mess. To make matters worse, we unexpectedly lost our sweet ruffles. She was such a precious part of our lives for 8 years and we will miss her so much. 

Onemajor thing this month was Charlotte got  her costume and had her pictures taken for ballet! I think she is the most precious chinchilla ever! 

Formal shots! Sorry I forgot to crop. 

She got to wear make up and was thrilled!! I loved putting mascara on those massive lashes!! 

It has started to get so pretty and warm! Frances and I have been trying to leave our cave and enjoy the sun!! 

My sister got married!! It was such a great weekend with family and friends. She chose to get married on the anniversary of dads death. It was risky and personal ally so hard but he would have loved the fact she chose to have a party to honor him. 
Frances got to go to the bridesmaids luncheon and sit with Aunt fran! 

Charlotte lived every minute of being at the lunch as well. She had a blast with the girls.

Frances is one month

One month!!! A whole month has passed since we had our Frances. I honestly don’t know where the time has gone. Time seemed to stand still when I had new baby Charlotte but this month has flown by! We are surviving to say the least, thanks to lots and lots of help!! My mom makes dinner for us several nights a week, and we have also had sweet friends bring us food and presents! Mrs Jill has been bringing Charlotte home from school and helping me get her down for a nap and the baileys come on Fridays to help with Charlotte since she isn’t in school. I don’t know what I would do without my amazing village of supporters!! I do have a lot of Mom guilt about the fact that I can’t spend every waking second with Charlotte like I used to. She doesn’t seem to mind and has the greatest adventures with daddy, but it hurts my heart a little. I try to still sonher prayers and songs at night before bed and see her before her nap but I miss all of the things we used to do together daily. I know things will go back to normal soon but I guess things won’t exactly ever be the same as they were before. I took her to her ballet pictures last week and on the way I told her I loved spending time with her and she said “I know! I’m fun!” She is the most hilarious. Anyway, this post is really about Frances! 
Everyone only really cares about baby sleep at this point and let’s say she sleeps like a newborn.
