Dignified in what she does and when she sings the smile that she brings

So, Jen and Chuck had little Charlie on March 13th.  I'm so happy for them.  I'm super emotional, honestly.  I think it's partially due to being pregnant and partially due to the how totally in love I could tell they were with this tiny little human already even though they had only just had him in there lives for less than 24 hours.  A moment that I will probably remember for the rest of my life is how Chuck acted when he arrived back at the hospital after taking a run home for stuff for Jen and Charlie and for a quick siesta (hospitals really need to work on the whole 'where dads sleep' situation...unacceptable!).  He came in, made a bee-line straight for Charlie's little plastic lego sleeping cube container, touched him on the head, and in a voice I've never ever heard him use before he asked "How's my boy?".  It was almost one of the sweetest things I have ever witnessed in my life.  I know it seems kind of mundane, I think you had to be there, it was just so emotionally charged and amazing.  I don't know.  Call it pregnancy hormones, call it sappiness, call it what you will, but it was beautiful and I am glad I was there to see it.  It's those little moments that really make you think about life and how good it can be. 

Anyway...another few names on the list...Rosali Antoinette and Rosalina (middle name tbd).  We are working on it.  Negotiations are going...well, they are going.  At least we aren't at an impasse.  That's a good sign. 

It's a Tegan and Sara kinda day today.  I blame my cousin but not too much since I have deep love for the sisters anyway. 

I am thinking I want to get into the world of cloth or reusable diapers.  I'm a little scared, it's hard to know where to start and they are so expensive!  So, picking a brand is super important but it's also a huge commitment.  And the comments are all over the place, what's a girl to do?  Here are the two options I'm currently considering:  Gdiapers and the trial plan over at Jillian's Drawers. I haven't made a decision's kind of a big investment...I bet chuck norris would know what to do. 

I had something I wanted to blog about today but seriously, the minute I started typing this, I forgot what it was.  I'm sorry.  Maybe another blog tomorrow?  Perhaps.
