1.) I went to church for the first time since Elle was born (2 months ago). It was so good to be in community again, but I was on the verge of panic pretty much the whole time…terrified of the germs I was exposing my little baby to. I missed most of the sermon because I spent the whole time mentally cataloging who was coughing, sneezing, or sniffling so I could make sure to avoid them after the service…how’s that for fellowship?
2.) Since I actually ventured into public, I thought it would be a good idea to put some effort into my appearance. Y’all, easiest hair style ever. I did it before I went to bed (in all of 1 minute), unrolled it in the morning, and it looked like this. I think I’ll have to post a tutorial on this!
3.) I may have moved to the South, but I’m no hillbilly. I finally was able to get my front tooth fixed. I chipped it while I was pregnant, but didn’t feel comfortable getting any unnecessary dental work done until after giving birth. That picture of me above? That’s how I’ve been smiling for the past 4 months.
4.) I also had a follow-up midwife appointment this week…so many warm and fuzzies. I carry such deep feelings of appreciation and kinship towards the the woman (or women, because I feel the same way about my doula) that helped bring my darling Elle into this world.
4.) The other day, Jay asked me why sister has a big butt. Cloth diapers, kid. And don’t ever let her hear you say that when she’s older, if you want to see big butts when you’re older then go to www.nu-bay.com/categories/56/ass but not until you’re at least 18!
5.) Speaking of sister, I just can’t even.
