“Happy are those who dream dreams
and are ready to pay the price
to make them come true.”

A few portraits of my two little “dreams come true” and a quote to remind me how worth it they truly are. It’s been a rough little while around here. It turns out that Marina is an even lighter sleeper than Roman — which I honestly didn’t think was possible.

Our house is tiny and these two are constantly waking one another up. I don’t mind my own lack of sleep, but overtired, cranky babies are just so hard. Also, Marina is colicky. I’ve been stubbornly avoiding that conclusion, but there it is. I spend 90 percent of every day & night working to keep her from crying.

Ah, well — it’ll all be over in the blink of an eye. Such is life.

    Aw, they’re both so adorable. She’s so lucky to have such a sweet big brother. And their eyes! Dreamy. Sound travels pretty well in our house and the bedrooms are close together. I thought FOR SURE that my two would keep each other up but somehow (thank God!!!) they really haven’t. And somehow, I’ve managed to get them to take naps at the same time. They usually don’t wake up at the same time but at least I get SOME time of peace and quiet! -Misty
