Today's Note

How you feel, Jessica, is more important than anything else.

And this is something you get to choose, moment by moment.

How you feel, Jessica, is more important than anything else.

A great reminder of something we tend to forget in the busyness of everyday.

Don't Really Have Anything to Say....

but this guy is a total sleazebag! Honestly it's not really a surprise that Arnold Schwarzenegeer fathered a love child with a member of his staff, is it?

My First Mother's Day!

Spent all day with my smiley happy baby! What more could I ask for?! Still crazy to me that I'm a mom. It hasn't fully sunk in yet! Here is a great article on Mother's Day, by Phyllis Chesler. This paragraph, especially, speaks to me.

Female motherhood is both a sacred undertaking and a sacred experience. Becoming a mother—giving birth to or raising another precious human being—changes you as nothing else can. You are pitched, head-long and feet-first into a parallel universe, a new way of life, a craft, a passion which tempers and deepens all those who engage in it.

Happy Mother's Day!

Remembering Savta

A tribute to my Grandmother who passed away in September of 08. A slide show put together by my aunt and perfect for Mother's Day. I miss my Savta, and wish that Oliver could have met her, but sometimes I get the feeling he already has!

3 Months Old!

Today, Ollie is three months old! I can't believe it! These last few months have gone so fast, but in most ways it feels like he's been here forever. A lot of good life changes going on! :) I saw/ heard his first "real" laugh yesterday...It might have been the most amazing thing I have ever heard. He must think I'm nuts.... I started to cry...and for the rest of the day I went to ALL lengths to make him laugh again. I can already tell I'm going to annoy this boy!

I miss it. Having this outlet to write was so nice. I just may take it up again. Now, though, unfortunately social networking is taking over. Not many people are blogging. It's sad to me because blogging, in many cases, promotes real conversations about real issues. Friends and connections are made, and not at a superficial level. Oh well, I suppose there are a few of you still out there! :)
