Beyond that, I've found one less thing to feel guilty about, which for a very long time included my inability to keep up a baby book. I still haven't managed that- I'm quite sure I never will- but now I don't suppose that I need to.
Through it all, it's been nice to know that though my followers may be few, many are nothing if not loyal. If I ever have a doubt, it's put to rest by the gently probing phone calls that I receive whenever I miss a day of posting. My great thanks to all of you for sticking with me this long, and for giving me motivation to continue, even when I could not find it within myself.
Now, without further ado, we return to our regularly scheduled programming: Mobile Moments 6/3-6/9.

Overheard this Week:
As she reaches the foot of the basement stairs, Abby happens upon a new bottle of shampoo. Picking it up, she observes, "It's shampoo. It's for Daddy's hair when he takes his clothes off. Daddy's gonna take a shower and he's gonna get naked."
While lying next to me on the sofa, Mia coughs. Abby, who is standing nearby, says to her, "Bless you Amelia. Cover your mouth when you cough." She demonstrates coughing into her inner elbow. "Like this."
Abby (setting Elmo down on Africa the Elephant): "Elmo's lying on the bench. He needs a binky."
Tom (with great interest): "What did you say, Abby?"
Abby (grinning proudly): "Blog post for the day!"
(That last one was from today. So far as blog fodder goes, that's some pretty meaty stuff on this, my blogiversary, amiright?)
