Warmth

It's warming up. Moving here in January, I didn't know if this would ever occur. And truthfully, I still don't trust it.

But I'll take it. We're eating otter pops in 70 degree weather. It's amazing how much weather changes your mood and lifestyle.

I think I'm a person again. I'm wearing a t-shirt.

There is a baby's shoulder nestled tightly inside the curve of my hipbone. Our bones gently knock together as I walk. Just something I live with on a daily basis. Something that's called "normal". But when you think about it... it's pretty crazy. So human, such a miracle...

And may I add, 9 months is a very long time.

I know how hard winter can be there in UT. Blah for me but gotta love the Spring time and otter pops and hoses. Not so fun with the 9 months pregnant thing, but hey, you are SO close to the finish line!

Dear Smylies Forever,

I hope this doesn't come across as creepy (though it is Halloween), but I came across your blog last spring via a friend's blog and I loved your thoughts and photos. They made me want to enjoy every moment with my kids and be a better mom. If you have any inclination to get back to blogging (though I can see you've had a few changes to your family that would lower this activity on your to-do list) you will have a happy reader. Thanks from Boston
