Cheeky Bird

So you all know our history with birds and them building their nests in our wreath. The two different times this happened, it was a symbol of our little Doodle to come. Birds have therefore always been a positive thing...

...until the other day! I was walking home from the park, and when I turned onto our street, a black bird started chirping and following me down the street. It would swoop past my head, land on a branch, and chirp warningly at me. As I got closer to the Manor, the bird swooped closer to my head and chirped more desperately. I literally ran into the house just as the bird barely missed my head!

So weird! I have no idea what the bird has against me. Perhaps he wanted some of my hair for his nest. Or perhaps he has decided to take ownership of our front porch and is warning me of it. Or perhaps he has an urgent message about my I'll be pregnant sooner than I want to be!

Either way, I'm a little freaked out to leave through my front door now!

Ode to a New Father

Because I am a mother, I may not have time to post a blog this week in time for Father's Day. So to be safe, I'm gonna post an early blog in honor of a brand new father this year: Mr. Michael Shaw, father to Westly Shaw. From the moment Westly plopped out into this world (he literally plopped), Michael has been a great father.

The first two weeks, Michael really stepped up and did laundry, cleaned the house, made sure I ate and drank, and changed diapers.

Now that life has started to get more evened out, he gets to do more fun things as a dad, like playing with Westly, carrying him around Target so I could try on clothes, taking him downstairs in the morning so I can sleep an extra hour, moving laundry from washer to dryer, and making up new nick-names for the Doodle, like Ludvig von Baby!

Happy Father's Day to the love of my life!

Bed, Bath, and Beyond

Mr. Westly is now two months old. He is growing, experiencing new things, and loving life!
