Ol’ blue eyes here is going to bed before midnight!!!
He is only napping for 15-20 minute increments!
And hates all bouncy-seats!
So he is pretty much a lap dog/ parrot on my shoulder/ tumor all day long.
But a cute one! And a happy one!
Oh, he is so lovely that I almost don’t mind him not napping! (almost!)
He smells delicious and his hair is the softest thing in the world! He has the most perfectly round, flushed cheeks, and when I carry him, his stomach sloshes like a water bottle because he is so full of milk! I’m in LOVE!
Despite this love, though, I kind of feel like our household is on the edge of a black hole of chaos.
(don’t tell Joseph- he’s afraid of black holes)
(It’s why he doesn’t want to be an astronaut- “What if it somehow gets closer to us and I get sucked in! I just don’t know what’s on the OTHER SIDE??!!!” He’s…well…an anxious sort)
Basically, I worry that if I spend one day not frantically scrubbing counters/picking up toys/washing clothes/dishes, dishes, dishes, we will fall through said black hole and it will take me weeks to recover!
So, blogging has been the first thing to go, allowing me a few more precious minutes.
Aww, who am I kidding? SHAVING MY LEGS has been the first thing to go! Haha! Seriously- I’ve only shaved twice since the baby has been born. Whatev! Haven’t you heard of wool leggings??!!
So, if you have been wondering- “Where did Caitlin go?”, you are not alone. I have wondered the same thing! Where am I?
Aren’t I more than a sandwich-maker and lego-fixer?
A nose wiper and a fight-breaker-upper?
(note to self: use “referee” next time. It’s easier and more like English)
(see! I can’t even type!)
But, Lo! just this week, maybe it was some springish weather? Or my tubby-tub-Samuel’s earlier bedtime? I am feeling something inside of me stretch and reawaken. Caitlin is coming back people!!
In other news, Joseph is reading books for hours a day, and Isaac hit his mouth and has a dead tooth.
See you soon!
