5 minute friday: Ordinary

1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..

OK, are you ready? Please give us your best five minutes on:


     Is it ordinary yet?  Certainly I'm not surprise to hear you cry for me in the night or forget to bring you with me in the car while running errands.  However there is still an awkwardness calling you by name, with me as often calling you baby girl almost as my brain is getting used to that idea first.  
   That said seven weeks later I'm loving learning your personality, your different expressions and how you like to be held.  On reflection, having you in our world and family is definitely not yet ordinary and that is kinda wonderful.


Now please head to Lisa Jo's for more 5 minute friday


  1. Aww, Joy, this is so sweet! Love how you wrote like you were talking to your daughter. Great post! That last sentence is the best. So glad it's not "ordinary" for you yet :)

  2. So precious! Enjoy the sweetness of your baby girl!

  3. I adore this post!!! What a fun concept too! Maybe I'll take this on soon.
