1.  I'm a guest blogger at Naptime Is My Time!  I list some of the challenges of city living with an infant.  Check it out here!

Come on, Ir.ene, well I swear what he means.  
At this moment you mean everything! 
2. Welp.  I'll experience my first earthquake and hurricane, all within the same week.  I'm trying to be prepared without being obnoxious.  I picked up some canned food and water.  I've been instructed to fill the bathtub with water to flush the toilet if necessary.  I'll charge phones and computers, and I'm thinking about making a run to Tar.get tomorrow to pick up a radio.  Otherwise...

3.  Being back to work is surreal and exciting and exhausting.  I'll post more on this later, but I'm so incredibly thankful that I'm able to bring J with me part-time.  Yes, I have the best of both worlds.

4.  I'm addicted to the song Perth by Bon Iver.  Please tell me you've had the privilege of listening to this song.  On repeat.  For hours.

5.  J has been log rolling across the living room which is just about the most adorable thing ever.  However, he does this strange head twist when rolling from front to back resulting in slamming his head on the ground a few times.  He then cries out and looks to me for comfort.  It gives me visions of the future when we reach toddlerhood and skinned knees.
