Thoughts on a Friday Night

Friday, March 9, 2012
Vic went "full moon" snowshoeing tonight. (To quote my sister, "As in, the heavenly orb, or as in, pantless?") I guess I'll have to ask him when he gets back...

It hit me that just because Vic was out, it didn't mean I needed to stay home on my hiney. And we all know I could use a break from Peter now and then.  Time to text my favorite babysitter.

I called up Rachael and we headed to see "The Artist". It was ok. It was cute. It was well done. But I didn't LOVE it. Plus, there were only 8 people in the theatre and each time we opened our pregnant snacks (Rachael is due in 2 days!) it was so loud in that silent theatre.

But here are my thoughts: I'm home from the movie now. It was great fun. Peter is sleeping and Vic is still snowshoeing. The house is all quiet and still. And all I can think about is how much I love my boys. I crept into Peter's room when I got home and he stood up in his crib, gave me a hug and said, "I love you too," then went back to sleep. Be still my heart!

There is no feeling in this world that comes close to what that does to me. Nothing. He is so adorable I can hardly stand it. I am in awe at his adorableness. I just want to kiss him and cuddle him all day long. With all of the talking he's finally doing lately, his cuteness just slays me.

I marvel at what a miracle he is in my life. He is the living proof of my hope.

And Vic? He just got home and is complaining that his butt is cold. I guess that answers my question...


  1. full moon snow shoeing... interesting!

  2. I wish you many more moments of such joy in your life!

  3. Delightful, heart warming post.


  4. I'm loving all these posts lately. Even if all I ever say is varying forms of "you're awesome."

  5. Molly I have been trying to find the right color to paint my bedroom. I have in my mind the perfect shade of blue, but can't seem to find that perfect shade at the paint store. My bedroom walls are splashed with various colors that I've purchased to sample. It looks crazy right now.
    I noticed the wall color in the pictures you posted and its what I'm looking for. Do you, by chance, happen to know the name of that color and the brand of paint you used. Please email me the information if you have it.
    Oh and by the way. Your little Peter is pure perfection - cute as a bug.

  6. It'd be helpful if I left my email address.

    Thanks again

  7. We all thought the silhouette photo of Peter jumping on the bed was a rooster at first. How funny! LOVED the post! Made us smile and laugh. :)


  8. I love this line, "He is the living proof of my hope." Well said amiga.
