There was a snow storm in Riga a few days ago. As I watched giant snowflakes falling, I desperately wanted to get outside and take some photos (yep, I’m totally addicted). I found a cooperative subject in one of my girls, who also wanted to get outside badly.

I have a commitment to document our family life via photographs. But there are some moments that can’t be photographed either way. Every night when I’m going to bed, my littlest girl wakes up and I’m breastfeeding her. She takes my arm with her warm little fingers. It’s dark in the room, but a night lamp gives me enough light to see how small they are. I hold both of her hands, look at her cheeks moving, smell her head. I feel how strong is my bond with this child. In fact it’s so strong that I choose to watch her while she’s eating instead of closing my eyes and sleeping. And I think, why don’t kids remember these precious moments? Or maybe someone does? Well, I don’t.
Honestly, I wanted to skip this post. But then I thought that it would be nice to have my current blogging goals written here to be able to check them after the year. So, here I go.
First of all, I’m constantly seeking for new opportunities for my blog (and new lovely readers always mean new opportunities) and this time I decided to try www.topmommyblogs.com directory where YOU can help me with this blog’s rating by doing only one simple thing — clicking on the banner on the right sidebar of this blog. Yep, just one click, that’s all. As easy as that.
Марго исполнилось 7 месяцев!
Marge turned 7 months old last week. Just some quick facts about her.
We call her a bun at home.
Нашей малыше пол годика!
Guess who’s here six-months old? Hooray for our little baby-girl Marge!
8 PM. Gorgeous skies with clouds like chips of cotton wool.
В город за нитками
Now that Anastasia’s school adaptation days are over, and she is starting to have longer classes, I have a little bit more time for myself. Today I spent this time getting downtown, having a stroll through Riga parks and visiting a yarn shop.
“Живём” на улице.
July rewarded us for our patience with a lot of sun and we finally got some really hot weather here after a rainy June.
All these reflections just fascinate me!
Yes, our little baby girl is two month old already! She grew a lot, we spent past month under a sunshine of her smiles. She likes to talk and also learned to cry when she desperately needs something. It’s not like she hasn’t cried before, but this cry is somehow different from the one she did in her first month. So this is also a sign that she is getting older. Past few days of her life are also remarkable for Marge’s discovery of her fists. She stacks them into her mouth and intently munches her fingers with a unconcerned look. It seems that I have to hurry with a mobile I wanted to make for her, or I’ll miss the right time.
As Marge grows her sisters change as well. Their intention to help me with Marge is so huge that I can step aside and just watch their energy flowing in a right place. I haven’t seen so much initiative for months! They wash dishes (even though it has been my prerogative before), help me cook, hang clean clothes, through away used diapers. They even don’t mind entertaining Marge for a little bit if I need to leave the room for a moment. I am really proud of my girls!
I’ve started a new crochet cardigan for Marge lately. I’ve searched for a nice and not so common pattern for it, but haven’t found any. So it was decided to make one by myself. I actually have already started bringing to life my idea and crocheted four rows, but then realized, that I had made a mistake in the very first stitch of the first row! Can you imagine my disappointment when I had to rip it all out and start over my project!
Though May is almost over, it is still enough time for mayflowers to bloom and May thunderstorms to moisturize the air through nights. I saw a great thundercloud through kids room’s window yesterday. I hardly had time to take a picture, the cloud had covered all of the skies and it started pouring. However, it didn’t rain too long, not more than a few minutes. Now i’m looking at my daughters’ paintings of a rainy day from their art class and feeling really inspired to paint one by myself. I wish I had a time for this!
Oh, I love summer rain with it’s warm puddles!

Май пришёл в Ригу с холодной, ветренной погодой. Смотря на уже совсем уверенно зелёные деревья за окном, совсем не хочется верить цифре, которую показывает градусник. Температура снова опустилась до 7 градусов. Зато весенняя прохлада в доме — отличный повод согреться за выпечкой овсяных печений по новому рецепту.
С последнего занятия по рисованию дочки принесли мне по нарисованной вазе с подсолнухами и самый настоящий букет одуванчиков.
А в соседней ваза большой букет тюльпанов от мужа.
Я всерьёз задумалась о митенках, но пока подыскивала себе идеи на Pinterest, случайно вдохновилась вязанными сапожками для малышей. Марго не будет лишним погреть ножки, пока дома так холодно. Экспериментирую.
А вот таким был апрель за нашим окном: тёплым, в основном солнечным и очень живописным!
