It's time

Hey hey! There is officially a post over at my new blog! Head over and read it, if you want. At least head over to check out the name and the quote I got it from. Still super-proud of that!!

Just can't hide it!

I must say, I'm pretty pleased with myself. Last night, I came up with the perfect name for my new baby-centered blog, and I managed to remember it today! It comes from my favorite quote from my favorite book series Anne of Green Gables. I am rather excited. I'm working on it, but it probably won't be ready for another week or so. I feel like doing a little dance.

I'll let everyone know when it's up and running. Family, you get to stop reading this one when it is. Bloggy friends, you're welcome to read both, or avoid the baby blog, or stop reading me altogether if you need to. I'll still be posting here, especially when I get this egg donor business started.

I'm so excited!

My favorite time of day is from about 7:30 to 8:30 pm. That's Cate's bedtime. It's when she and I say goodnight to Daddy and go upstairs. We sit in the glider, have one last bottle, and rock. Sometimes I read her a story. Sometimes I sing to her. Sometimes she goes straight to bed. But I love that time. I love holding her when there are no distractions. No phone, no dogs, no TV. Just us.

When she dozes off, I like to sit and imagine what her room will look like in 5, 10, and 15 years. Right now, it feels like it's just as much my room as hers. I put everything away, she's hardly in there without me (when she's awake). Right now, it's our room. But I like to think about what it will be like as she takes over. I like to think about toys on the floor, books on the shelf, posters on the wall. It makes me smile.
