Little story and lots of posts

I had a little time on my hands, which has been hard to come by recently, so I posted a few things today. Scroll down so you don't miss any!

Earlier today I had my first "baby brain" episode. (In case you didn't know, baby brain is the condition that occurs following the birth of a child caused by little sleeping, baby soothing, diaper changing, floor-time playing, bottle preparing, house keeping, errand running, doctor visiting, and rarely slowing.) As I was preparing bottles, I realized I only had 3 caps and 4 bottles. I thought I'd go ahead a prepare all 4 bottles and then locate the missing cap before shaking that bottle. I poured the water and formula into all 4 bottles, and capped the three. At that same time the dogs go tearing through the house barking and then run out the door making a crazy amount of noise (of course the baby was napping). I look out the window to see what the ruckus is about and simultaneously pick up the bottles to shake them. Guess what...yep, I picked up one capped and one UNcapped bottle and began to shake. Needless to say, formula went everywhere. I'm sure it was quite a sight. Thanks goodness no one was around to witness it. Oh well, at least Eli will think I smell good!!

It was great seeing you guys yesterday. I told Jacob I love his haircut - so handsome. Eli is so precious. I can't get over how he is growing. Jennifer, you are such a natural, loving mom. Matt, what a great, supportive dad. Your family is a blessing.
We love you,
