Single girls get all the hook ups.

Saturday night we met my friend Cydney for dinner and then went to The Gelato Spot in Scottsdale. She was holding Adeline as we walked inside. We all got ice cream and as the guy handed Cydney hers, he looked at Addie and said "It's on me - just because that little girl is so cute."

After we left the shop, Cydney said "That probably happens to you all the time, right?"

No, actually. That has never happened to me.

Giving in.

Yesterday while Nathan and Jacob were at our house playing with Adeline, Nathan discovered that he could get Addie to laugh uncontrollably by putting a toy elephant in her mouth. This in turn made him laugh really hard and was one of the cutest things I'd seen in awhile. I grabbed our digital camera and tried to get a picture. Red letters flashed "No Memory Left" because Col had forgotten to replace the memory disk. I grabbed it, put it in and tried to take a picture. I was so frustrated waiting for the flash to charge, and took several pictures where they had both moved and all that was left was Jacob hunting for goldfish crackers in the background. This picture isn't half bad, I'll admit, but it's a little fuzzy and it's the only one that came out at all.

I turned to Col and said, "Alright, let's go to Costco and get that camera." Now we're broke but I'm going to be missing a lot less photo ops of my baby girl.

Not a good way to wake up.

Time: 3 a.m.
Light: Pitch Dark

Col: "Do you hear footsteps?"
Me: "No, I don't hear anything."
Col: "It sounded like a woman in high heels was walking around the house."
Me: "What?!"
Col: "Actually... I think you were just biting really loud in your sleep."
Me: "What?!"

It took me over an hour to fall back to sleep.

I blame the Girl Scouts.

Today was a monumentous day for me. A red-letter day. This morning when I weighed myself, I was officially back to my pre-pregnancy weight. I was very excited and may have told a few people about it (you know who you are) and shared my excitement with them.

Then tonight, just for kicks, I weighed myself again. Now, everyone knows you weigh less in the morning, but 5 lb? 5 lb?! So much for being back to my pre-pregnancy weight. It may have something to do with the box and a half of girl scout cookies I ate today. I'll get you Girl Scouts...
