Simple Woman's Daybook, New Baby Edition (Jan 27, 2009)

FOR TODAY, Tuesday, January 27, 2009…

Outside my window… snow-covered prairie grasses and brilliant sunshine

I am thinking… That I have the most adorable baby boy lying next to me right now.

I am thankful for… Thomas Edmund Paul’s birth Sunday night.

From the learning rooms… no school today. Just witnessing God’s miracle with all the kids.

From the kitchen… Daddy & the kids made waffles and oatmeal this morning, and quesadillas for lunch. Mom made delicious chicken vegetable soup yesterday for lunch. It really hit the spot.

I am wearing… comfy pajama bottoms and a tomato-soup-colored v-neck top. Hair in a pony tail, socks & slippers.

I am creating… memories holding my little Thomas while he is little enough to be held.

I am going… to recover as quickly as I can!

I am reading… Nothing right now except the sweet expressions on Thomas’s face.

I am hoping… We all get a little more sleep tonight.

I am hearing… coos from Thomas, computer typing from Ian (working from home today), a few sounds of quiet play from the older kids during the little kids’ nap time.

Around the house… Everything is serene during nap time. The house is picked up, the dishes are mostly done, the laundry is pretty much caught up. Fr. Jeremy came Sunday night to bless the house and it does feel blessed.

One of my favorite things… cuddling with a brand new baby. The smell of a newborn – so sweet!

A few plans for the rest of the week: Sigh… no plans (bliss).

Here is picture thought I am sharing…
