♦ Luke and Clementine have the same little cartilaginous ear nodule! Luke accepts this as incontrovertible evidence of paternity.
♦ Even though I gained 30 pounds during pregnancy, postnatal day 11 finds me only 10 pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight. Holy diuresis, Batman!
♦ Although we have been treated to it only a handful of times (and each around 3 a.m.), Clementine's full-on wail assures me she inherited her father's vital capacity, along with the ear nodule.
♦ From the couch: Netflix's House of Cards is such a great show. WATCH, Y'ALL. The writing is excellent and the cinematography is gorgeous. (Only beefs: the rest of the cast acts circles around Kate Mara; the Hispanic character of Linda Vasquez is played by an Indian actress. Why??) I've started listening to Molly Wizenberg's A Homemade Life.
♦ So glad to be nursing in the age of the smartphone. Handy for Pinterest-ing, Googling articles about pacifier use, taking a zillion pictures of C while taking care to keep one or both of my giant moon-boobs out of the frame.
Any recommendations for shows, audiobooks, or other hands-free diversion, readers? I'm planning to watch Breaking Bad and Homeland at some point, and start listening to NPR (my commute pastime). I miss you, Steve Inskeep!
