Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy

Have I embedded that song in your head? Goooooood.

My heart is doing a happy dance for my friend Art-Sweet and her partner Pili. Congratulations, ladies. I’m thrilled for you guys.

This man. I’m not a big one for celebrity crushes, but every. single. time I see George Clooney, I give an involuntary little “Fwwwoooaaaar!” and my knees go all wobbly. I luff him. *drool*

More in the November issue of Vanity Fair .

The Bug is sleeping thru the night. Let me repeat that. Sleeping. Thru the night. I thought it was an anomoly. She started doing it about 4 weeks ago, but not every night. And now? Now it’s a bit of a whine, pop her into bed with her eyes wide open and 5 minutes later, she’s asleep. I don’t have to rock her, I don’t have to hold her, I don’t have to lie down with her. In fact, she hates all those things. When I try them, she hollers. But if I give her a binky and put her in her bassinette, she goes right to sleep. A bit of a fuss, a bit of a gurgle and Robert’s your father’s brother, sleeping baby. This? Is a miracle.

See? I can be happy, I can see the good things in life. I’m not a total downer.

    Wow!!! That is HUGE when the bean starts sleeping through the night. Welcome back to the real world, mother. (And PS – Emma Thompson looks like total crapola in “stranger than fiction”)
