big weekend! saturday we had vi’s party, and it was quite a success. though you can’t really go wrong with hotdogs, root beer (thanks to the castoes), d.j. lance rock cake, and far too many presents. violette was very happy, thanks to all our awesome friends and family who do what they do. we appreciate it all so very much.
sunday, brady’s dad popped over from amarillo and we had a quiet day while he slept and then we went shopping and got pizza, fun times.
tonite is church here and then afterwards… the midnite release of harry potter!!!!!! i can’t wait, really. this morning we’re headed over to my grandma’s to play, and then tomorrow is my 6 week appointment with the midwives. bittersweet, because i know it’s my last midwife appt., ever. i’m sure i’ll cry 🙂
saturday was also theodore’s 6 week mark, he is the biggest of my babies, by far, which is interested because he was the teeniest at birth. he is just so so chubby and roly poly! though he insists on shedding all newborn trademarks way too early, it’s okay. i was concerned about it, and really wanting to enjoy his baby phase, but i had this realization the other day. when we get stuck in a particular stage, be it newborn, baby, toddler… whatever, and we’re really sad when they grow out of it, it’s awfully unfair to the little one. because we’re so concerned about them not being what we want them to be, and also we’re missing out on the stuff they’re doing NOW. the past is PAST, right? i mean, how often do we get stuck there, meandering through the day, thinking about the good times we had or the bad, or just whatever. but we’re totally missing out on RIGHT NOW.
time for my favorite cheese quote:
“the past is history, the future’s a mystery, the present is a gift, that’s why it is called the present.”
oh, & i love my husband. & he loves me. squeee!
