...Is this thing on?

So I've been thinking about blogging for awhile.  But as a mom to a 10 month old, my time is...well, no longer just my own.  Then I read the blog of a friend who was writing about her babe and the experiences they as a family are going through and I realized, it's time.  Besides, I love to write, think I'm pretty good at it, and want something that my son can eventually read about our adventures with him, from the beginning.

It's hard to think of a title for something like a blog.  This is something that has a semi permanent stamp in cyberspace.  You want to make it count.  So in rolling around some ideas in my head, some cliche, some too serious, and some just downright cheesey, I started to think...what are some of my favorite things? Favorite song? Favorite lyric? Favorite artist? And then this came to me.  One of my favorite songs of all time, and for those who know me very well, know it pretty much ruled my 20s, is the Cure's "Just Like Heaven".    So when I think about my son, who in the past 10 months has brought Terry and I such absolute joy unlike anything we've ever known, it came to me.  He, this perfect little being, so innocent and untouched by the world's turmoil, is for me, Just Like Heaven.

I'll do my best to write as often as possible; recording firsts and milestones; sharing pictures and videos; venting frustrations and mishaps...and in the meantime, thanks for being along for the ride.



  1. I LOVE this! Thank you for asking me to follow your blog. I'm still laughing over the photo of Garrett "planning his escape with Gabby" - its a classic!

  2. Thank YOU! You always say such nice funny things to his pictures and such. I hope you can meet him someday!
