Number of extra days I had to work last week: 3

Number of times I have layed Eva down for her morning nap to no avail today: 5

Number of times Ella has asked me for a drink today: 545

Number of loads of laundry I’ve done today so far: 3, 3 more to go

Yep, that about sums it up.

And there’s a tooth

August 17th, 2010

I swear since Eva hit six months she’s been on the fast track with milestones. She started eating solids then, started sleeping through the night, then at seven months started crawling, and right away started pulling herself to a stand, and now … there’s finally a tooth poking through! Yay! It will be great when both of them can eat regular food.

And Ella is growing in leaps and bounds too. I actually bought her pajamas in size 5 yesterday. Oh my goodness. And she insisted on pulling Eva in her wagon yesterday home from the park. It was kinda nice for me.

Curtains Part II

August 13th, 2010

Along with the drapes in the living room, I also had some roman shades made for some of our downstairs windows. And I love them. They’re colorful and fun and have lots of personality. And they look great with the other curtains.

I never realized how relaxing it is to close up the windows and shut out the bright sun sometimes.

Plus having someone hang them for me was worth a million dollars alone.

The turtle and the rabbit

August 13th, 2010

Ella asked me if she could borrow my camera yesterday and she came back with this picture:

It’s of a little plastic turtle and rabbit from her grandparents. I asked her “Did you put them up on the bench like that?” She said “Yeah. They’re not real. They can’t do it themselves.”

I guess she told me.

(I of course was wandering if her daddy had done it for her)
