#149 - Yay! I need a new one too. I don't mind sharing with hubby, but I think he is a little nervous with me using his laptop. lol

#153 - :)

#156 - Oh, I remember how fun it was when Christian started to wake up happy. A content baby is such a blessing.

#157 - The most amazing feeling when the baby routine begins! Having evenings free made me feel like myself again!

P.S. I noticed you're reading Keeping House. How are you liking it? I can tell she has liberal theology, but I still enjoyed her thoughts on homemaking.

To be honest, I haven't picked up the book in a long time (library books tend to win the "what shall I read?" contest), but the (small) part I have read I enjoyed. I really should finish the books I've started before finding other ones...
