New Face

Our little one has a new favorite face to make when she's feeling contemplative. She doesn't have her top front teeth yet, so it's a fairly easy face to make. She just had the best time tonight hanging out with two little friends, Emily and Lucy. Em and Lulu are sisters, so watching the dynamics of those two absolute sweethearts with totally different personalities made me all the more excited about the future interactions of my little one with her upcoming sister. That's right, they tell us it's a girl!
Shout out: Some other friends of ours just had a little girl this month as well, a beautiful little Bella! Yey for babies!

Swim lessons

The other day, my oldest child decided to try to teach my new phone how to swim. I turned just in time to see her go "dunk dunk dunk dunk" into a glass of water she had gotten off the bedside table. She was rather pleased with the experiment. My phone has yet to recover.

Book Worm

"In the case of good books, the point is not to see how many of them you can get through, but rather how many can get through to you"
--Mortimer Adler

My daughter is sure loving The Foot Book.

What's in a number?

Does anyone else out there have to think for awhile and do some mental calculations when asked how old you are? "Let's see, it's 2008, and November, and I was born in 19## in June, so that would make, really? That can't be right. Did I carry the 1? Did I miss a year?" It's always a confusing time for me. Instead of asking how old, I wish people would ask me what year I was born in. That would save me a whole bunch of hassle and surprise.

What's in a dream?

Last night I had a frustrating dream. I went into labor early and had three beautiful Asian babies, two boys and a girl. It was all kind of a blur and I was trying to get used to the idea of triplets while having a foggy new mommy mind. Before I knew it, they were three days old, and I hadn't been able to start feeding them yet!
We happened to be in Hawaii vacationing with my parents, and of course, we took the kiddos for a speed boat ride to a tourist attraction of an island. (?) There were babies in car seats all around and I couldn't find my kids! When I would find one, I'd lose them before I found the next one. Finally I managed to get two of them, and one had taken his clothes off and was covered with poo. I started trying to feed him then and there, while the girl in my other arm was wriggling... and I couldn't remember her name! This is the really frustrating part. For the rest of the dream, I could only remember the names of two of the three at one time. When I finally remembered the girls name, I couldn't recall one of the boys.
I went to my husband for help with this, and he very piously quoted some scriptures and said it would come to me. He refused to tell me the name of our baby, even though I cried and told him I was going insane! So I asked for a divorce. Then I woke up to the sound of my actual child crying, and while slightly upset with him about it, told my husband the dream. He agreed that it was terrible, told me not to say the "D" word and went back to sleep.
Does anyone feel like psychoanalyzing me here?

It's been awhile! We just got back from So. Cal this week and have been busy trying to get back into the swing of things. I hope you all had a happy and safe Halloween! My little fairy princess sure did. Thank you to Grammi for helping me make this!
