The Big Juggling Act!

4-8-10-small-6


One of my biggest challenges is how to give both Paprika and Ginger quality one-on-one attention. Ginger demands a good portion of my time (obviously!) and it's one of those bittersweet things- so happy for Paprika to have a living sibling and for the immeasurable joy that Ginger brings to our lives...but also I miss out on my one on one times with Paprika, since for almost three years she got every single second of my time most days. I obviously wouldn't trade what I have now for the world, it's just different than it used to be!

When Ginger goes down for her nap (which isn't happening too often lately, ahem!), that's my Paprika time. Love these moments...like we had today! I can't tell you how much she refreshes me, and being with her helps me see the beauty and joy in the small things.

Here are a few more pics taken today during Ginger's naptime- Paprika and I made the most of it!!! ;-)
