My mother in law told me about this poem, and I love it. Too often I find myself wishing the newborn phase away (I want to interact with this kid, yo!) so I appreciate reminders that this is a quick and precious phase, the laundry can wait (not that the house has ever been that
What a difference a month makes. Four weeks ago today I was very grumpy, very pregnant, and relatively certain my pregnancy was a permanent condition (which I think every woman starts wondering somewhere around 39 weeks). (grumpy? yes.) I was particularly irritable toward people who suggested I eat at a certain restaurant, see a certain
Check out these alphabet magnets my friend Candace made for David. Aren’t they awesome? She used instructions found here. I can’t wait for David to start playing with them.

virginia is our home, we love it, and it was accordingly our very first state in our fifty states project. the highest point in VA is Mt. Rogers, which is in southwest virginia, near abingdon. mt. rogers is a great highpoint because you actually have to hike to get to the summit. most of the
