i am...

totally freaking out about finances (and my poor financial decision making skills which have led to this freaking out)

listening to the baby maybe sleep?

waiting to move the diapers into the dryer

looking forward to seeing some really good friends this weekend (only how many more days to go?)

encouraging sweet hubby to take a second job, if he can find another that works with his schedule

hoping hoping hoping not to end my maternity leave early just because of a (BIG) miscalculation (and getting weepy at the prospect)

addressing baby announcements

fixing some lunch (sandwich and fruit, how exciting!)

going to enjoy (as much as possible!) staying in my pajamas all day and staring at my beautiful little peanut's face

i am...

waiting for the baby to wake up

skipping church (at the university...we went to big church this morning, with the peanut, and she slept through most of it, until my mama passed her to my sister...and she got very fussy, since i couldn't feed her in church and it was close to the end and I was sitting on the very inside of the pew, during the sermon, and then she had to wait until we were seated at the restaurant to have a go at her bottle...which she doesn't like...and the whole afternoon has been a little more difficult than normal...)

hoping that i can do a better job anticipating Peanut's eating schedule since we stayed home from church and the distractions that being out and about bring with it

wearing my third outfit of the day -- church, pjs, and more pjs...being a mom is messy

so glad that my family like to spend time with the Peanut

observing a subtle shift from us always stopping by my parents' house to them often stopping by ours

wondering how long we get to keep the pretty pink bow on the front door

wishing i had a magic wand to clean the house and do the million and four loads of laundry each day

thinking about whether i should try to eat supper before i wake up the Peanut to feed her (probably a smart idea)

going to go find something to eat

She's here!

(Um, ok....I'm officially totally behind. She's been here for two whole weeks already!)



This was the day we came home from the hospital -- my family had put up a welcome home sign for the baby, bought us lunch, and marveled with us over how tiny our little girl (5 lbs 13 oz!) looked in a doll's dress and the bonnet my dad had bought for me to wear home from the hospital so long ago.

Baby girl is already growing -- she was up past her birth weight at her two week check up, and her toothpick legs are starting to fill out just a tiny bit.

We are SO IN LOVE.
