I Live For This Smile!

Notice the drool--just another sign of teeth
on the way--so I'm trying to snap as many pictures
of that little toothless smile while I can. Posted by Picasa

We're handy women! Sophia and mommy
put together a crib at Nana's--Sophia's a great
supervisor. Posted by Picasa

Ow! Ow! Ow! Let go. Let go please!
Once upon a time I had the misguided impression that a women's hair was her crowning glory. Long, short, curly, straight, blond, brunette, blue it didn't matter it was was her's to style in keeping with her identity.
Recently I've discovered that was just another pre-baby fantasy.

Hair, in actuality is a handle. Created specifically for little ones to steady themselves or more importantly gain your complete attention-instantly. Sophia it seems is loving her new found power. This was never more obvious than on Saturday having a chance to shower and spend a little time on myself (usually one or the other-rarely both.) Even having a new dress to go out in I felt lovely and completely "unmommy like." That was until I tried to walk out the door-past Nate who was holding my little angel.
Ow! Ow! Ow! I cried out in alarm-stumbling backwards into the house.
Stealthfully Sophia decided to remind me of my mommyhood and had stuck her little hand into my curly hair at the exact moment I walked past the door. In and of itself this wouldn't seem so premeditated had she not also latched on with surprising quickness and a vice-like grip.

Now I know the real reason mom's either cut their hair or wear it up 24-7. And here I just thought it was b/c we didn't have time to shower. Handles. . . you heard it here first.

Mayday! Mayday! We have a bib emergency!

Why is it that when our kids get in a jam instead
of rushing to their aid we grab our camera's first? Posted by Picasa

Mmmmm Pears

When Sophia started drinking water out of my
glass and fixating on my food we knew it was time.
Time for food--wow does she like it! See how my
mom is holding her hand--little miss independance
would be feeding herself if she got her way. Posted by Picasa

Thanks Grandma

When I was little my grandparents came back from
Florida with a tee-shirt that said "Grandma & Grandpa went
to Florida and all I got was the stinkin' shirt!" Which, as the story goes, I quoted the line on demand for weeks (but I think it was a "thinkin' thirt" in my version). Anyway my folks looked high and low for the same thing on their trip, but times have changed and they came home with a politically correct version that said "Someone in Florida, loves me and got me this cute little shirt!" (Just doesn't have the same ring does it?) Posted by Picasa

Out Like A Light

Talk about trusting, every time we went out into the water with Sophia she instantly fell asleep, lay her down on the sand, wide awake, back in the water, she's out. Now that's what I call sleeping like a baby. Posted by Picasa

Sneak Peak

Our Cup Will Again Overflow with Goodness by Sarah Kay
Although I've never been in this hospital, I know it will be here. A quick glance around the small chapel, and I find it hanging on the wall as I had seen it before in another hospital. It had brought me so much peace, and I trusted in the perfect truth of the words. More... >>Stay in Touch with Sarah Kay

Great Summer Read

If it's been just long enough since you graduated from college that you need a good reminder about the good old days. You know, when you had no experience and no way to get a job in order to gain said experience--than you'll really like this book! Or if you've just recently started your Raman-free grown-up meal-plan that has you longing for that college food b/c no matter how bad it was--it was that wonderful thing that you suddenly appreciate. . . FREE! Than you need this book!
Or if you're like me suddenly telling your little brother to thank the lady serving him salad behind the lunch line b/c he magically has the four food groups provided for him, and doing the dishes entails dumping them on a moving conveyor belt--then this makes a great gift for those "freshman in the school of life." But check it out for yourself first.

Don't believe me check out Jennifer's blog for a good laugh and a peak inside the mind of another writere (scary I know-but it might explain me just a little bit-for those of you who have been concerned--I know you're out there!) Posted by Picasa
