spryng: (books)
- It's peak autumn here. Half the trees are bare, the other half are full of bright leaves, and the other half... third... are blue spruce. It is solidly in the 50s and usually gray and sometimes rainy, but we're still getting intermittent bright, sunny, warm days. It hit 70 last week and should hit it again tomorrow.

- Life with baby is finding a rhythm. I am so much more confident about our ability to take care of this wee squirmy thing and I'm (slowly) learning to go with the flow instead of trying to impose my own predetermined schedule on the day. There will be time for that later. For now, baby sets the schedule.

- Tomorrow is the official start of NaNoWriMo and I know I swore it off in years past, but I'm going to try to do it this year because I have a book to write. Also, because it will be a good way to reintroduce myself to the world of writing after almost a full year away. Pregnancy hormones are a bitch, man, but I am so, so glad that there wasn't something else causing my writer's block.

- Anyone else doing NaNo? I'm spryng over there, too.

- My parents are here and super helpful, each in their own way. Mom has been cooking us food, with real vegetables, and helping to hold the baby when baby only wants to be held. Dad has been bopping around the house, fixing all the little things we'd been putting off. Already the sink has been unclogged, lightbulbs replaced, door frames measured, the siding power washed, the glider de-squeakified, the coat hook installed - and they've only been here a week!

- Sleep isn't stellar, but thanks to formula, I'm getting at least a solid 3-4 hours every night and then I just supplement with a few 30-45min naps. My anxiety is in check and I'm mostly functional, so it must be working.

- And now the baby is up, so that's it for now.
