Seven Quick Takes

I participate in this weekly event but I rarely link up anymore. For some reason I think it’s too much work. Maybe I’ll do it today…


Jansen had his 2 month shots yesterday morning. I didn’t cry, but I did feel bad for him. The poor kiddo started screaming the second the needle touched his thigh. The good thing is that I’ve heard his “oh my gosh, this hurts like a mother” cry for the first time. That’s good because now I know that he’s never really been in that much pain, even the time I scratched his head with his onesie snaps and Stephen kept saying, “That looks really bad!”

The other night Stephen was talking to me when we were in the living room. Now I pride myself on being a good listener and I hate hate hate it when I talk to Stephen and he doesn’t respond. But my mind was especially gone at that moment… moreso than my new usual. He said something, I nodded. He said something else, I nodded. He said one more thing and I sort of nodded. Then he started laughing hysterically, “Are you even listening to me??” “Yes.” I thought I was. So I repeated the first thing he said and then the second thing. “And then what did I say?” Stumped. “There was more?”

“I told you I shot a dog today.”

He didn’t really shoot a dog. For the record.

My MIL confessed yesterday that she has never had a Pumpkin Spice Latte. Can you all please reprimand her?

At Jansen’s 2 month appointment we found out that he weighs 12 pounds 12 ounces and he is 22.5 inches. That’s the 75th percentile for weight and 50th for height. I anticipate that changing drastically in the future – he’s going to be a tall kid!

My husband spent a hefty portion of his evening last night watching classic Sesame Street songs on YouTube. It’s shocking how quickly it all comes rushing back to you. I suggest you cut out some time to refresh your memory.

I could listen to baby noises all day. The sighs and yawns and hiccups. Even the grunts and toots are cute!
