Quick and random

  • Thank you to everyone for the sweet and encouraging comments on "doing it all." I feel lifted up by those of you who have journeyed this path of motherhood before me, and I feel refreshed by the perspective of those who are on a different path altogether. Thank God we're not all on the same path at the same time, or chaos and panic would reign, eh? I do believe this is why God intended a sisterhood of women, for this very encouragement and refreshment that I've felt from you all. Thanks again, my lovelies! I'm going to write a few follow-up posts as I continue to juggle my responsibilities and improve(?) in my efforts. Of course, I'm sitting here in my pj's and a bathrobe at nearly 5 p.m., but at least the kitchen is clean and dinner is planned for the evening. Baby steps!!!
  • I just saw a picture on a blog of a mama kitty nursing several baby kittens. I'm not a cat person, but this picture brought tears to my eyes. Nursing is such a gift (for all us mammals!), and I have been so thankful for the opportunity to nurse my son. We supplement with formula so Daddy can take a feeding and so Will's tummy can get full (more on that coming in his 3-month post), but I intend to keep breastfeeding for another few months at least, not just for the health benefits for me and for William, but also because it's such a unique and beautiful way to bond with another human being. Will takes bottles with gusto, but he always wears a different expression when I'm breastfeeding him, and I will be truly sad when I wean him and I'll no longer see the look of absolute peace and contentment on his face when we're cuddled up in the glider and he's nursing. Sometimes I'm overwhelmed by the beauty of it, because it's one of those things I really gave up on ever getting the chance to experience. God is so good!
  • Snickers ice cream bars may very well be my Favorite. Food. Ever.

Re: Jim/Pam wedding - how cute was that smile on Jim's face in the last second, on the boat??? Goodness, he's just adorable.

It was even more than I hoped for, the wedding! Who didn't want to just run away and get married privately by the time their wedding came around?!? Although I would have paid real $$$ to see my family and friends boogey down the aisle.

I nearly pee-ed my pants at Kevin's new look: hairpiece and Kleenex boxes. HYSTERICAL.

Best episode ever!!!

Kristen said...

It was a very well orchestrated episode. Everyone just rose to the occassion and was totally "them". And didn't you just want to freak out when Michael and Pam's mom hooked up? YIKES!

OMG, Jim & Pam wedding. I've watched it 3 times. I have issues. Clearly.

Hope you and your sweet family are doing well.
