I come here occasionally to write about whatever is on my mind. Sometimes it is helpful, once in a while even profound. Mostly I ramble about food or Doctor Who.

It's been a while. Let's see, what have I been up to... hmmm... oh yeah, HAVING A BABY!
Hunter Alan Phillips was born Tuesday night, March 20th, weighing in at 8lbs and 8oz. Yeah. So he is now just over 5 weeks old (and currently sleeping on my shoulder). Our little doodlebug has been a great source of joy, and more than once a source of stress and tears. Ah, the learning process, wherein there is no "normal" and the rules seem to change every day. WHEE!
I don't mean to complain; we're extremely blessed. He sleeps through the night really well (so far), he hasn't made any massive or uncontained messes (yet) and he is starting to figure out this smiling business, which rocks our socks off. Every day we seem to learn something new.
Time to get on with the day; running to Target with Hunter can be fun and also hectic. Wish me luck!
