For Today

Taking an idea from a friend.


For Today...I'm hoping to get the dishes done and thank you cards written.

Outside my window...several robins that keep running into my window.

I am thinking...how can Erik sleep through Dane's crying, screaming, laughing and squealing?

I am thankful for...my two healthy boys and coffee!

From the kitchen...lots of fresh fruit ready to be eaten at every meal.

I am wearing...gray sweat pants, a light pink tank top and a gray hoodie.

I am reading...Real Simple magazine and the newborn section of "Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child"

I am hoping...to get a good nights sleep tonight!

I am creating...our 2008 family photo album on shutterfly.com

I am hearing...Dane sucking his fingers and smelling his blanket and Erik shifting in his swing.

Around the house...there are toys and Dane's CDs littering the floor, and I'm okay with it for now.

One of my favorite things...my morning coffee with French Vanilla creamer in it and watching the Bachelorette on Monday evenings. I am in love with Jillian's zest for life!

A few plans for the rest of the week...swimming at Grandma's house, attending a park play date and sending out Erik's birth announcements.

A picture to share...

Today I struggled to wake up for 30 minutes and then worked for 12 hours. That's all I've got. Can we trade lives? I love this post though... Makes me feel like I'm there.

A memoir from a day in the life of a mom... so poignant! Never forget how valuable, essential, extraordinary an irreplaceable you are. Loves!

HANS! Now that you know, you have three years of posts to catch up on. That should help you pass the time at work! ;-)

Oh goodness what a sweet smile on that little guy. I second the coffee comment. I'm just sitting down with my hot cup to look at blogs :) I wish we could all teleconference in and watch the Bachelorette. Seriously I am living for Mondays. If you need random stuff to TiVo as I am finding I do try out "Cake Boss." I love watching him make those gorgeous cakes!!! XOXO Lins
