meeting august

a month ago, my sister had her second child, a baby boy named august. the girls and i were powerless to resist the promise of baby snuggles, so we headed to minnesota to welcome august to the family. we have been calling him “baby gus,” but the way tilly says it is identical to how she says “baby ducks,” so he might have a new nickname. august is as sweet as can be, which is no surprise, given the amazing people he’s lucky enough to be surrounded by. we all slowed down (well, all except tilly — there’s no slowing her down) and soaked up the newborn pace of life for a few days.

big brother rowan and josephine had so much fun together running in the yard and exploring. we watched the derby, making bets on the horses with fake money and taking turns wearing tilly’s fancy hat. the girls and grandma and i made yet another visit to laura’s little house in the woods. we sat in the shade on a 90 degree day on my aunt and uncle’s deck at their beautiful farm. i got a hug and a visit from one of my oldest friends. and i got to share a mother’s day breakfast picnic with my two favorite moms in the world.

i took far too many pictures. here are a handful.
