It's 6:30 a.m. Apart from when Ryan took him out of his crib and put him in bed with me, Alex has not stirred in nine hours. I officially have a sleeping-through-the-night child.

When Ryan put him down, I buried my nose in his hair. I swear, if they could somehow bottle the smell of a freshly washed baby and put it in laundry detergent, war would end and the roads would be clear all day long because nobody would be able to get out of bed. The smell of Tide a la Baby on their sheets would just be too intoxicating.

The days are just going by so fast lately that I feel an obsessive need to chronicle everything. It's already Halloween. The time of the year that I look forward to the most is already upon us and mentally, I still feel like I'm getting through July.

We've been preparing for Halloween. Our neighbors hosted an impromptu pumpkin carving thing in their driveway. It was fun, in the way anything can be fun while there are prepubescent boys around.

I'm really trying to raise the boys right. I kiss them often and try to teach them empathy, but honestly, I fear in my heart they will be no fun to be around in eight or ten years. One of my acquaintances has a twelve-year-old who swings wildly between kind, sweet, polite (he calls me Miss Jen) boy and sneering sociopath. I have little experience with boys that age and I can't tell if this kid is normal or not. Either way, it's frightening.

for lunch: Thai at a hip spot downtown with Ry and Gail. I have a most juicy Lost spoiler, if anyone is interested.

Tonight we're going to a trick or treat thing at the Bishop Museum. I figure we have one good Halloween left before Katie grows out of it. Zac has little interest in the custom so far. He doesn't eat candy and he'd rather be naked any day of the week so costumes hold little charm.


basin.com (there are only three actual stores in the US) has a soap called "munchkin baby soap." it is the closest thing i've ever found to freshly washed baby. and since it's made for babies, it's really good for your skin. :)
