As a new (again) mom I wonder about things like how early humans bathed their babies, because there were no safe and snugly baby bath tubs. I wonder about breastfeeding, because sometimes when you're feeding the baby both boobs start to leak, and I am so thankful for a bra and breast pads, so what would Cro Magnon Mom do? There are some baby gadgets that I think are marketing crap that 'the man' tricks you into thinking you need. Then there are baby gadgets that I just cannot live without - the bouncy seat, the pacifier and a bottle are way up there.
So sometimes when I'm alone with my thoughts, which is not very often, I wonder these things. Let's face it- I'm surrounded by men who all need me most of the time, so having time to sit and ponder such things hardly ever happens. But when it does I picture what the first bouncy seats, pacifiers, bottles, etc. looked like. Am I alone in thinking about these things? What weird things do you think about when you have the luxury to ponder the imponderables?
Also, here are some beach photos, which I think are totally adorable (of course). Henry enjoyed a nap as soon as we arrived at the beach.

Jack and I went swimming. We were the only ones in the family crazy enough to go in the cold, cold water.
