|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.
