Just One More Thing...

The rocking chair came today. It's been around ten weeks of waiting and it has been totally worth it. This chair is gorgeous! It's Amish made from Elm and 'butterscotch' leather. I'm so very truly excited to use it, whether that be at bedtime while reading a book, two in the morning while being fussy or just while getting breakfast in the morning.

There's just 1 thing missing.. our son. Down to 88 days. Woohoo!

As an aside, it was a strange perspective of the baby's room while sitting in the chair. So happy to have experienced it for the first time (of many) this evening.

90 Days & Counting

A speedy 90 days I hope!! I often call into concern our society's (including myself!) desire to wish away time. It just doesn't seem right. Why would you want to pass over all of the little moments? They're usually the greatest ones!
"Oh, I wish it were the weekend!"
"I can't wait 'til summer!" 
But I think I get it! 
The widget on my phone and tablet to remind me how many days!
The loop represents the amount of time that's past since we found out.

Apparently Chip and I are getting our information from the same source but are on different weeks! He's a week ahead of me. So the only information I can share is the same as the info I posted last week. Baby Sylva is about the size of a cauliflower, he's sleeping and waking regularly (Yeah! Keep up that pattern little guy!) and brain tissue is developing and his brain is very active! (Of course it is, he's gifted, don'tchya know!)

He's probably mostly brain!!

Older and Wiser

I don't know if this applies to fact, I might be the anomaly on this one.

I don't feel any older and I certainly don't feel any wiser, but I do feel really good about 30. This looks to be the year of the baby, maybe the year of a new house, the year we start composting, the first year there were no changes to the garden and most likely the year of millions of amazing new memories!

The dual bin composter.

A very wise choice to not have to turn the garden over with a spade.
