a sweet life


The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart.
- Elisabeth Foley

happy birthday miss meglet! this quote is truly for you; thank you for being so wonderful, giving amazing advice, lighting up every day and making me laugh constantly. you are a beautiful person. knowing you has made me a better person. i hope today is a happy one.

today i have snuggled my li'l boy, shared a stack of bar exam result celebration syrupy pancakes (hip hip hooray), watched bits and pieces of General Hospital while feeding my boy (can someone please tell me why Lulu is in a mental institute? can you believe she took the stand today!? and why aren't those two doctors getting married anymore?), rocked benj to sleep (oh my goodness, he folds his li'l hands up and interlaces his tiny fingers. and the proud mama had to snap a photo to show papa.), gave benji two costume changes already (are his diapers malfunctioning or is this just what two week olds do?), chatted with my parents (have a fun trip!), ate a bunch of purple grapes, folded clothes, washed dishes and took a nap.

life is good; still so sweet and low key. am trying to get to know all this newness. am (gratefully) recovering well and life is slowly churning into normality.

You are supposed to post those pictures for those of us with baby lust. Not that I am, I mean, for the others. ;)

As for the diapers? Whenever we've had blowouts, I go up a size. Even if the weight does not reflect this. It seems the weight isn't always right. The diaper blowouts are though.

Sad that I know the answers to the General Hospital questions, Lulu started to go a little crazy after running away with Jonny (after killing Logan). Dr's not getting married because she didn't really want to in the first place, I think she might change her mind after today though. :)

It's totally normal Marta. Totally normal. :) You might try a different brand though. Hurray for your DH passing the bar! Good for him!
You must share pictures of little Benji's hands. I love it when tiny little ones do that. :)

oh! my mom used to watch general hospital when she was feeding my sister and i. i used that as my excuse to watch it (carrying on the tradition in a way) when i had days off in high school and definitely enjoyed it through college. enjoy!
