It's All Good

I honestly did not realize how many days have gone by without a post from me...

I have several things to tell, several (OK, maybe more than several?) pictures I could post, and a real itch to get back to all of your blogs - I miss reading the news of your lives and the cool insights and downright entertaining things you all add to my life.

But I also have a perpetually and ravenously hungry little baby and two busy boys and a phenomenal husband who took a whole month off work to be with me and the ravenously hungry little baby and two busy boys, so that's who I've been with.

In the meantime...

Morning Glory nominated me for a very sweet blog award (more on that later)...

My new friend, an awesome mom and birth guru at Birthsongs sent me a very kind e-mail to check in on my postpartum life (which I really needed and it meant so much!)...

My little Henry turned THREE years old (more later on that, too)...

One of my blog-mom heroes, Jen at Amazing Trips, had a chubby baby boy on the 4th of July (if you don't know her story, she has three miracle triplets from IVF and now one "singleton" miracle that they made the old fashioned way - and her blog is fabulous!)...

The sister of my greatest redheaded friend evoh visited from England and we took Charlie for his first look at Washington, DC along with her. She and Calvin danced in a fountain - I was only a little sad that it took a 40 -something woman to get my 4-year-old to act like a child for once, but I was mostly glad because he was positively gleeful...

My grandmother visited for a day and a half en route to a Mediterranean cruise with Auntie S's family. I am so glad that I got to see her and that she got to see my newest little man...

I have indulged in some fabulous reading. Reading does a body good, that is for sure. I revisited To Kill A Mockingbird (so satisfying and precious - I love that book even more the second time), was thoroughly fascinated by Malcolm Gladwell's The Tipping Point, and started Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See, but had to let it go to the Mediterranean with Auntie S and will have to finish it when she brings it back (unless I go buy my own copy because I did NOT want to put it down...hmmmm...)

I finished all the enrollment and financial paperwork for going back to school at the end of August. Whew! I'm really looking forward to it, but wow. I have a lot of ducks to get in a row before then!

I do hope to be up and posting more regularly soon. Have a fabulous weekend!

Wow, you've been way too busy for someone who just gave birth!!

To Kill a Mockingbird is my all time favorite book. I don't know how many times I've read it and seen the movie.

I have been following "Amazing trips" I am so thrilled all turned out well for her. Its amazing how I related to her struggles and pregoness!(new word) She has truly had my attention the last few weeks.
I am glad your visit with big sis was grand...she told me herself it was nice trip.
I can't believe you are going back to school, me too..but I am scared after being out 8months and having a 7month old,look at you go:) One of my dearest resident at the nursing home says his only regret is not getting a Phd. That is not going to be you sista.

That is great that your husband got to take so much work off. Do you have pictures of Cal in the fountain and Henry's birthday? I can't wait to see!

it's amazing how fast time flies post-partum, isn't it?
i'm glad you're all doing well.

Sketchy said...

Yay! Code Yellow is back! Glad to hear you are generally enjoying your days with your new babe - those are moments you can't get back, so hold 'em tight!

Jennifer, Snapshot said...

Good to hear from you! Sounds like all is well.

You have been busy, but it's sounds like such a wonderful time! Reading, visiting with family, school enrollment ... bonding ... you're right - it's ALL good!

Speaking of blog heroes - I think that your post about shopping at Target when you were 40 weeks pregnant, with two little boys in tow, pretty much sums up my opinion of you. AND THEN - you go and fend off a crazy jumping squirrel. You're a super hero for sure!

Glad to hear that you are having fun, enjoy your husband's time off!! :)

Liz said...

so you were wondering how many days it's been since you posted a post? it's been 6. 6 WHOLE DAYS :)

Sounds like life has been treating you well.

What are you going to be studying when you go back to school?
