Guess who's inconsistent? and other random thoughts

Me, that's who.

I would venture to say, it's completely justified too, this inconsistency in blogging but I'm not one for excuses.

Instead of a play by play of our rather tumultuous past months, I will do a rapid fire of random thoughts.The thoughts will serve no real reason except to get them out of my head and to fulfill a blog post.

Here we go:
Babies grow exceedingly fast. I now fully understand this principle.

2011 was fair with an awesome event or two. 2012 will be better

I  didn't do a Christmas card this year.

I've cried more these past 4 months than I have in the past 4 years combined.

 Dahlia is one of the sweetest, most cuddly babies ever.

I didn't care about decorating my Christmas tree this year. In fact, it looks a bit forlorn and weird.

On death and dying:
Things you shouldn't say to someone who has lost a loved one:
anything that starts with "well, atleast..."

Being present, available, and a question-asker goes a long way with someone who is grieving. It makes know they are not alone in their sadness and grief. 

Grieving last more than the visitation and burial process. Normal is not just around the corner.

Christmas is a difficult time of year. I don't know why since it is the time to celebrate Jesus being born and all. I suppose it's priorities and focus.

Watching your child get gifts is way more fun than getting gifts yourself.

I don't see my family near as much as I should...I do most of the traveling usually and with an infant, it's not that easy.  

Consistency is usually one of my strong suits. Not lately.

Encouraging is usually one of my strong suits. Not lately

Being a mom is my strong suit lately.

Eating is a strong suit.

My husbnad looked strong in his suit this weekend.

Time is a precious comodity.
I wish I had more of it.

I want to learn how to make artisan breads this year.

I think of going back to school at least once a week.  That's where it begins and ends.

I miss being pregnant.

I miss the summer.

Dahia's laugh is hilarious.

I'm making chicken and dumplings for dinner.

It think I'm becoming a hugger.

I'm all out of thoughts for now.
But as you can see, my brain is a  confused melange of thoughts.
Inconsistent, yes. Is that a bad thing?  Not really. Atleast that's what I keep telling myself.

I need to go hang diapers up to dry and feed a tired baby...
..and obviously think of a funner blog post for next time.
