Oh Goody.

Alright, so you realize that you'll have to put up with a gratuitous number of baby photos now, don't you?

William had his 1 month check-up yesterday and has gained exactly 2 pounds (9lb 14oz) and grown an inch (22in). He's getting so big already! What the heck?

Okay, Suzy tagged me, so that's why we're here (well, and cause I had to show off the above photo)...

A. Each player lists 6 facts/habits about themselves.
B. At the end of the post, the player then tags 6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog, for these rules.

1) Giving birth has made me realize that I can do anything. Being in pain and working that hard for that long made any other possible task seem like a piece of cake! I feel so much more confident in myself now. It's amazing. I've never felt like this about myself before.

2) The holidays haven't even happened yet but I'm already starting to feel that let-down/post-holiday depression. Thanksgiving is next week! And Christmas will be here and gone so fast. The first couple weeks of January are always a bummer. Everything is just going too fast for me. Can't the holiday season last a couple more months please?

3) We've already discussed this at length here, but can I just express one more time how much I love anything with pumpkin in it? I mean really now. It's such a delicious squash (is it a squash? or what?). Kelly made a pumpkin soup while we were staying at her house and it was so so good. And I had a pumpkin scone from Starbucks today for "lunch". Give me more pumpkin stuff please.

4) Speaking of pumpkin scones, that's really the last thing I need to be eating right now. I have a large number of pounds to lose post-baby. The "oh, I'll lose the weight after I have the baby" mentality is just plain stupidity. It would have been much easier to have been anal about everything I ate WHILE pregnant so as to not gain the weight in the first place. But somehow the fact that I KNEW that even while doing the opposite didn't have much of an effect.

5) The loveliest golden glow is coming through the living room windows right now. I wish a photo could acurately capture the moment. Some things just have to be lived though.

6) I procrastinated (what?! me!? procrastinate?! that's un-heard of!) the making of two birthday presents and didn't get them done before William was born. And now it's taking me a million years to get them done cause I'm only able to work on them for 15 minutes at a time. So now one of them is going to be late. Dag yo!

Good thing I only had to think of six things -- I was struggling to think of that many AND William just woke up so it's time to go. Goodness I have the cutest baby in the world. If you need proof, please go back to the beginning of this post. See? Told ya.

I tag Christen, Alissa, Ruth, Lisa, Trevor and Adelyn!

I need to see more pictures of that gorgeous baby! I don't think babies are cute very often, and William really is. Don't worry about the weight right now. When your baby is a year old and you are leaving for Hawaii in a week and still haven't lost all of the weight, then you should worry. Do you think I can get a six pack in a week?

oh wow! Will looks so grown up already! No! That photo is absolutely priceless...they don't come any cuter, and I'm NOT just saying that!

Thanks for letting me "off the hook" on the tag... it's hard thinking of 6 things, I'm glad I didn't have to do it again. :)

You guys have a great time with your family over Thanksgiving!

I feel so honored that you liked my pumpkin soup so much. :)

Dang you! I'm sure I can think of six things to say but I have no idea how I am going to come up with six MORE people to tag! This might take a little time....

Oh man, Will is the CUTEST kid. Ever. We were supposed to come down this weekend, but that feel through. Blast! Soon, soon (!) I will meet this kid!
