1)I do not include many deets concerning what it is like to be married to a PhD student, which I realize makes me a fairly fat liar since the little description next to my profile picture says that I am "documenting life as the wife of a PhD student"... blah blah blah. So in order to not have to change my description, here's a small snippet of what a date-night looked like this week with a husband who is about to take comprehensive exams, which he has been studying for 75% of this past year and is in the zone:
It was intense, as I am sure the next 2 weeks will continue to be.
Eventually Mike devoured that Reuben, and we spent the rest of the date talking about other, more normal things. And honestly, even with the academic talk, it was so nice to have a quiet meal by ourselves (thanks to free babysitting and a restaurant gift card courtesy of awesome MIL).
2) I have a new nephew!!!!! My little sister-in-law gave birth to her first baby, Leo Gregory, who is also my newest little godson and he is the best. He was 9 pounds 9 ounces which pretty much makes Hannah a champion.
|I obviously have the magic touch|
3) Here is a little video of Naomi and Bernadette belting out "Our God is an Awesome God" on the way to meet baby Leo. They were pretty excited.
What? We like Rich Mullins.
I think Bernadette's lyrics went something like "Our God is awesome!!!!!!! He reigns!!!!!!!!!" Over and over and over again. Call me cute and cheesy... No really, call me that.
4) Because sometimes nursing babies means dealing with difficulties, and at times, even illnesses associated with nursing, I was fortunate enough to dodge my second of 3 dental appointments to get cavities filled yesterday. Since I would rather be in the throes of an all natural labor than at the dentist, I am not going to say that I wasn't a little bit EXCITED. I mean, I had to reschedule and am only prolonging the inevitable, but I will take nursing problems over gum stabs and incessant tooth drilling any day.
6) Enough complaining, let's talk about something wonderful, shall we?
7) February is over!
And that's how I feel about it.
Go visit Jen the quick takes Queen and her kingdom of takees now.
