You'd never guess that something so small could make so much laundry. But, alas, I've invested in a economy-sized tub of Oxy Clean to keep up with her blow-outs and spit ups. Ahhh... but isn't she just so cute?
The past few days have been busy ones for me. I guess I'm trying to keep up with the pace of my old life and its a bit impossible. Saturday I went scrapbooking for the day with a girlfriend of mine. It was a much needed time to focus on the ever-growing pile of pictures. I'm only a few months behind (knock on wood). After I get caught up, I've promised to go through all of my family's old photos that have been collecting dust in shoe boxes. To my moms credit, she did put SOME in photo albums. But once you get very far behind, its hard to keep up and many have found their home in a shoe box. Its been fun going through them with my family when we get together. Its lots of "remember when...?". Ahhh... which brings me to Christmas traditions. We never really had something we did EVERY single year, but I've always loved Christmas and tried to make it special. For those of you that don't know this about me, I've made it my goal to put a Christmas tree in every single room of the house. I haven't quite gotten there - still collecting trees - but I do have a fair amount of trees throughout the house. I think it makes it so festive. Its too bad that Christmas is only once a year. This year I feel like its come up so fast. I'm not even tired of Christmas songs like I usually am by this time. Maybe its because I can't really get out to shop (a lot of it is online this year) and therefore I haven't been inundated with "Rudolph" and "Jingle Bells". Its so hard to believe that Christmas is only two weeks away... I mean seriously! I haven't even STARTED composing a Christmas letter. Hmmm... Maybe it will be a New Years letter again.
Oh... so back to being busy. Sunday night I had a rather enjoyable girls night out with Kera and Melissa at BoneFish Grill. My pan-Asian salmon was spectacular and I thoroughly enjoyed the pear pomegranate mojito that I sipped on alongside it. Ahhh... being pregnant was great, but right now has many benefits too. =)
Then last night I went to a MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) get together and sampled like 10 different homemade soups and breads. So yummy. I have to say that as much as I enjoy it, I, for some reason, still dont feel like I fit in quite yet. Nothing about the group - I just think I still have to remind myself that I'm really somebody's mother now. Ha!
I'll end this ramble with the following picture...which really doesn't require any introduction. Cheers!
