Catching up a bit!
Yesterday I carried on a 10 minute conversation with our neighbors, talking about how three kids were no big deal so far- and when I came in I realized that my shirt was on inside out. And the ponytail was not as camouflaging to my two-day-dirty hair as I imagined.
I think they may suspect that I’m lying.
(long, long nails at birth. Dude was clearly overcooked.)
Joseph has a pair of boxer briefs that he loves, loves, loves and refers to as “his favorite undies.”
Every night after bath/shower, he asks if his “favorite undies” are clean, and lately the answer has been no. Finally a few days ago, I excitedly told him that yes! they are clean tonight!
To which he replied, “Interesting! So, to clean a pair of undies, it takes about 4 days!”
Joseph has also suggested that we refer to Samuel as “waaahmuel”.
Although, really folks, other than 7pm-midnight, he is an ANGEL!
The rains have started here in the Portland metro area. I would call them the autumn rains, but any Oregonian knows that they are actually the autumn-winter-spring-and early summer rains.
I am so happy they are here! Rain on the roof, cozy fires, sweatshirt season, pumpkins, apples, Halloween on the horizon, Christmas after that, AND a new sweet smelling newborn that is ALL MINE?! I am so blessed.
(Seriously, LONGEST BABY TOES EVER.)
