Family of Five.

Charlotte Anais is 5 years and 9 months old.  She can read beginning chapter books in French and English.  She loves riding her bike, skateboarding, climbing trees, and listening to music and audio books.  She is especially smitten with Harry Potter, Emily Windsnap, and the Rainbow Fairies.  She belongs to a junior bowling league and takes gymnastics lessons.  This summer, she starts folklorico dance.  Her most recent hobby is making latch-hook rugs.

Evelyn Ruby is 2 years and 4 months old.  She is pensive and sensitive.  She loves riding her bike with training wheels, playing dress-up, dancing, and picking flowers.  She absolutely adores animals.  She is very shy and often takes weeks or months to warm up to new people.  When she feels comfortable, though, she is a very sweet and loving soul.  She calls butterflies PAPI-FIES - a mix of “papillons” (French) and “butterflies” - and bug bites BUTTER BITES.

Genevieve Norah turns 2 years old in a few days.  She is endlessly inquisitive.  She loves playing with water, chasing bubbles, finger painting, riding her tricycle, and putting puzzles together.  Her favorite toys are our train tracks.  She is very outgoing and adventurous.  She gives hugs, blows kisses, and can run like the wind.  One of her most beloved pass-times is untying my shoelaces.  She loves to tote my shoes to me with no shoelaces in sight, declaring ME HELPING MOMMA!

I am 36 weeks pregnant.  I am cranky, hungry, and sleepy.  This is my first pregnancy with cravings: pork roast, chicken soup, strawberries, and mint chocolate chip ice cream.

    So wonderful to see all your good news!  You had so much going on, and I thought maybe the blog had been given the heave-ho (understandable). I’ve been following since Charlotte’s birth, and pregnant with my first (early days yet), I’ve been dipping into the archive.  Charlotte is so big!  and the other kids are so cute.  Congrats on the next arrival!

    I’ve been considering removing your blog from my regular blog rotation for ages but I just couldn’t do it, and now I’m so glad I didn’t! I am so happy for you and your family! This is the best update!

    How lovely to hear all of this—what a gorgeous bunch of girls you have. I barely recognised Charlotte, she’s grown so much.

    All the best as you finish up your pregnancy.

    You have no idea what joy it brought me today to see your post!  I check every month or so; yours was my favorite blog for years!  No complaints from me on your hiatus, and no expectation for a return to regular blog posts; I have two active little girls under 4 and I can’t imagine keeping up with writing a blog!  I hope your amazing, beautiful family is bringing you the joy and fulfillment you so deserve.  Take care, and be well!

    Merci de partager avec nous de si belles nouvelles :)

    So happy to hear from you!  So happy for your two! new additions.  Little G looks so much like all of you in every little bits of ways. :)  It is amazing what love does.  Charlotte has grown up so much, and looks so old!  (Well, for that matter, so has E!)  I was thinking about you & your blog last night, and missing your stories, and so happy to see this morning that you popped in for a moment.  You’ve been missed!  Glad all is well. :)

    I don’t know if you’ll be updating regularly again but I would love to hear about how your little home farm is doing.
    Ps. Your daughters have such lovely names!

    So happy to see you again!  I’ve followed your blog for a long time, and kept peeking in occasionally to see if you were back.  What a treat today.  Congrats on all the good news.  Your girls are beautiful, and can’t wait to hear about the new one on the way :-).

    Hi Sarah,

    I had ALMOST given up checking your blog! I was so surprised to see some updates. Yours was the first blog I ever followed and still one of my favourites. What a lovely family of beautiful girls you have! I’ll be sure to keep checking in to see what your bump holds! Congratulations on all your good news! I missed you!

  21. By on April 09, 2015

    Wow, I haven’t checked your blog for over a year and I come back to find such a beautiful, growing family! I’m so happy for you and I don’t even know you! My daughter is Charlotte’s age so I feel like they’ve grown up together. I saw your family post on FB a week ago but didn’t see that you were 36 weeks pregnant! Looking forward to hearing about your new baby…a boy possibly??

    I almost don’t recognize Charlotte.  In my mind’s eye, she’s still a toddler.  Congratulations on #4!!  Where were your pictures taken?  It kinda looks like the hills of the SF East Bay.  Genevieve and Ruby are amazing.  I’m so thrilled to see an update and a happy one at that!  I can’t wait to hear more. Your old posts on raising Charlotte are such an inspiration to me.
