Thanks! And I find reading books does the trick. One night last week I read for two hours before bed. It was the soundest sleep Ive had in ages!

Thanks Lauren! You too! :)
Yes, so important! So is nurturing your relationship with your partner...Ill probably write about that at some point too. Its not easy to make the time, but its key. And yes to bread and cheese! We only do that once or twice a month and its wonderful. I love the process of picking out fun new things to try to eating them at home. (Or enjoying them on a picnic!)
That's super frustrating! The groups we go to are definitely mostly on the weekdays, though our Hike It Baby chapters are always looking for and adding weekend events.

Im so glad to hear it! Im putting a post together on annual traditions too. Love hearing how people celebrate the seasons. Id love to reread Quiet - I forgot that part. Such good stuff! Happy New Year!
Thanks Kristin! Yeah, I find it so peaceful to have something in place, but I also like that we can all find what works for us, and they can constantly change. Happy New Year!
Thank you!

Thanks Jen. That means a lot to me. It's amazing how much easier life is now than it was those first few weeks. It's hard to know whether it's because we get used to living on so little sleep, or because we get a teeny bit more sleep.
I'd gift this to our sweet new baby girl.
Thank you! Yes, definitely worth it. And as time goes on I'm getting a bit more sleep (and getting used to living on so little). :)

I'm sure I'll share more updates at some point, but yes, she's totally a little lima bean. So cute and snuggly. :)

I started Wild and just couldn't get into it for some reason. But maybe I'll try it again. I'm hoping to get to our local library this week to get a library card and pick out a few books!

Yes! Such good advice! Definitely trying to stay in the moment and enjoy the quiet and free time I have now, since it's going to be gone so soon. I love being able to run errands or take a nap pretty much at any time (but a big part of that is because I'm able to take off time from work for now, which is huge).

I love kid art! This brings me back to summers working as a camp counselor, and years teaching kids at nursery schools and elementary schools. Have you played around with clay or play-doh? I love seeing the sculptures and 3D art kids make...so fun!

How do you (and do you) secure this to the wall? With a little one on the way soon, we're starting to think about how to baby-proof our home, including art. We have some art that's just leaning or standing on a bookshelf (and the bookshelf itself needs to get secured to the wall), but wanted to ask a fellow mama. Thanks! :)

Oh my gosh Guess Who! I forgot about that game, and the homemade board is incredible. Also, great podcast! Curious to see what the future brings...
