Aundrea swears that even though "normal" will never be the same again, one day we'll get up and this new version of "normal" will actually feel normal. I can't really imagine this feeling normal, but I'm sure she's right. She always is.

Evidence that we're slowly getting more "normal" each day includes:

  • I peed and it didn't hurt. That's a big deal.
  • My google reader is back down to zero unread.
  • Yesterday Josh, Thomas and I went on a walk and played on the playground at the elementary school. This playground rocks. We'll be back.

  • I had to use face lotion for the first time in a couple of months. My face turned into an oil factory there for a while, and now I'm thankful for my regular dry skin to be back.
  • Josh went to get a massage today.
  • At night I roll over onto my stomach to reach Thomas.
  • Earrings. I'm wearing earrings for the first time in a week.
  • If we're having dinner tomorrow, I'm cooking it. It's been fabulous having people wait on us hand and foot (thank you!) and if I'm being honest I still have some freezer meals from our moms...but since we'll be home all day tomorrow with nothing to do but feed the baby....maybe I'll cook!
  • Currently Josh is playing Super Smash Brothers and I am blogging - what's more normal than that?


  1. Hurrah for getting back to normal!

    I'm so excited for my oil factory to be shut down. I always break out so bad the last few weeks (and first few weeks, and pretty much the whole pregnancy in between) that I'm pregnant.

    I feel like I'm 13. :)

    Anyway, you guys are cute! How fun that you went to the playground. I was still shuffling/limping a week after having Rachel, so kudos to you, girl!

  2. I have to tell you something..."nothing to do but feed the baby" takes a LOT more time and energy than you think it does haha. Trust me it will catch up to you. :p And plus, which would you rather do...cook something yummy or stare at your beautiful baby all day long lol?!? :p

  3. Since you're gonna quote such a good authority, I can't really argue, can I?

    Here's to a beautiful, abnormal day--until it gets normal again! (And here's to walks to the playground being normal!)
