This and That

Who does Joshua look like? I’ve been saying Libbie. But now I think they’re either all carbon copies, or all babies just look the same.

It’s been brought to my attention by my mother that I have the easiest birth recovery ever, it seems. I wish I had some secret formula to market it, but here we go: I feel great. I don’t feel let-down. I don’t leak. I have very little trouble nursing (Joshua’s actually been the hardest one, and it took him about a day and a half to get it). I lose all the pregnancy weight immediately. And with my other two, I hardly even bled after I got home.

Apparently that’s all abnormal.

If I just liked being pregnant, having babies would be easy!

Why is there real TV programming on at 3 a.m. but not 6 a.m.? Doesn’t 6 seem like a more reasonable time to be awake than 3?

I’ve watched a lot of Food Network.

Miss 4-year-old may never recover from all this excitement. Her decibel level has been raised 300%, mean-ness to David 400%, desire to obey is at -500%.

But all in all? Things are good.


This dude is seriously cute and sweet.

I’ll be running some guest posts over the next weeks, so stay tuned!

  1. You seriously do have the easiest recovery I’ve ever heard of! I was still leaking with Darah 4 1/2 months post partum! Good times!!!!

    But hey, we all get it a little hard in some ways, and a little easy in others. You are sicker than most for 9 months. Which is no fun. As I’m sure you are aware!

  2. See, I’m kind of the opposite. Pregnancy doesn’t get me down too bad, but I do bleed forever and ever, and with my first I leaked like crazy. Unfortunately, my two greatest talents in life are taking standardized tests and having pretty easy pregnancies/childbirths. Unfortunately, I cannot figure out a way to licitly capitalize on my talents for either one.
