Mikey was wondering why I talk so much about how astonishingly attractive I think MacQuinn is. He says that I didn't say it quite this much, about the other two – when they were Mac's age. Which would be 5 weeks old, can you believe it?!

I told him that I agree.

I didn't say it this much with the other two.

I didn't think it as much either, and I assume it's because I wasn't as crazy-making with them. I got enough sleep in my first two rounds of baby rearing. I wasn't living off of caffeine, sugar, 2 hours of sleep, riveting shows on Netflix and the good will that the charm of an infant induces.

God, but he's worth it.

So I am compelled to remark upon that, over and over and over and over and over.

And over.

Not to forget the other two though!

And that's why we should all be friends on instagram, if we are not already. I'm posting all these over there

With the little pieces – like Moxie making kissy-face, or the awesome bar of "Moxie" soap we received from Amathia Soapworks (SO DIVINE! !!!). Or of how Moxie has taken to diving into the "brest friend", ready-set to be a milky Mama.

I think I prefer instagram to facebook these days. It's so much more interesting, with the visual aspect, and you never feel like you need to watch how many "likes" or comments you give, for fear of cluttering up everyone's feed. You can just slather that love around all thick-like, the way that makes you happy.

Anyway, so I'm over there – withalittlemoxie – so let's hang out, if you are there too.

In the meantime?

I'll keep on basking in the light of Sir Squigglebottom
