Go Big Or Go To Sleep?

Just making sure that the baby's pack and play is up to her standards. 
  And is it just me or is this kid an awesome fake sleeper?

I chose sleep.

Today was one of my last Fridays off of work and most likely one of my last days of just hanging out with O and so I had to ask myself "do I want to spend the day running around, doing something big and grand in celebration of that?" or "do I just want to relax?"  And for those whose know me, it probably won't come as a surprise that I chose to relax.  And so we spent the morning at a routine doctor's appointment, followed by a hospital tour for O where I showed her where she was born and where Ben had his appendix taken out (yeah, yeah, I know that does not sound like fun, but I swear she's been asking to go see the hospital for months.  What can I say?  The kid is bizarre).  We followed that up with a little stop at the local fabric store where she picked out some fabric for a blanket that I'll make for her since she's obsessed with every blanket that has recently entered this house for the baby.  And then there was nap time - for both of us - a luxury that I will surely miss in the coming weeks.  Plus, a little treat-making thrown in, because there are few things that I love more than chocolate covered strawberries.


It was a day that may not have been exciting or glamorous, but it was exactly what I needed - and perhaps what O needed too.

  1. i am so glad you had a great day with O. she is so sweet. if i lived near you i would offer to have her come play at my house for a couple afternoons after the baby comes. that was the best gift i ever received after i had my son. i could sleep and my little miss had a great time playing with her grammas.

  2. That sounds like a perfect day to me! And then there was all that lovely sunshine as well. What more can you ask for? (beside the new baby...) :-)
