In an effort to remember all these precious and sometimes not so precious moments with Hank, I went out and bought a journal today. I've been reading Operating Instructions: A Journal of My Son's First Year based on the recommendation of one of my favorite bloggers Holly at Zucchero Zucchero. It made me realize how much I want to be able to look back, or rather read back, what exactly Hank was doing on certain days or weeks, how I was feeling or what our life as a family was like. And maybe someday Hank would want to know these things.

It made me really wish I had written a journal while I was pregnant and started this journal right when Hank was first born. I know it would have been helpful when DJ and I try again. Hopefully my mommy brain will still allow me to remember things from the first 5 weeks of Hank's life.

Anyway, I hope you're having a good week. I will mention we have discovered this week that Hank loves music and if he's a little fussy and needs to take a nap, turn on anything off of Fleetwood Mac's Rumours and goodnight Hank.
