A Few of My Favourite Things

1. Watching him sleep

2. The snort-sounds he makes when he’s upset

3. His tiny milk mustache after feeding

4. How warm he is

5. When he wakes himself up from squeaking loudly

6. He just started smiling


I have never seen my freezer so full.  Ever.  And nothing else is going to fit in there so I guess that means I’m done cooking and freezing food!  Good thing because at 39 weeks, this baby is coming.  SOON!


It’s the onions, I swear!



Incongruent

My mind is moving fast with ideas.

My body is requesting, “Please stop!”

We moved our entire house around yesterday.  (That’s not true - our bathroom and kitchen remain the same)

I’m not even sure if there are lots of things to do, I just want to move and be productive because I feel in a couple weeks I’m going to be a happy couch and bed blob holding my squishy son and thinking he has the best face on the planet.


I’m learning to quilt.  I made my first thing ever yesterday!  It’s a bib for my son.  Next week I’m going to make a baby blanket.  He’s going to be the warmest baby boy in Oregon.

What they call you is one thing. What you answer to is something else.
Lucille Clifton, poet

Me : Would you give those beans a stir for me, please?

D : Of course. What are you doing over there?

Me : I’m reading about women in history.

D : For Women’s Month?

Me : Day.

D : (throws hands above his head) Women should have a fucking month!

Gotta love him.  <3
