We went to the hospital to visit my other good buddy, Andrea, and see her brand-new baby Amber Lynn. She was born the day before yesterday. I forgot how small they start out!!! I love the squinty newborn stare. I also love how brand-new parents think their baby cries loudly. Just wait, Andrea, she's just praciticing for the real thing!!!
After visiting with the new family we traipsed off to the mall to do some shopping. We ransacked La Senza together and ended up buying matching undies (how girly of us!!!) We also pawed everything in Le Chateau-I looked wistfully at stuff that could not possibly be accessorized with spit-up or sticky peanut butter fingerprints. Sigh, I have to have mom clothes. I should have gone to Rietmans.
Robin came back to my place for a tarot card reading (shh, that is none of your business). We talk almost every day through email, but it is soooo wonderful to be able to have a conversation face-to-face. Oh, and to shop with someone who is not afraid to tell you how you really look in things. I swear, some sales people are leagally blind, or so desperate for a commission they will tell you anything. Not cool.
While we where out shopping, Richard was teaching Emmett how to make poo poo on the potty. Emmett will now use the potty for his grandma, and his father, but not his mother. Why???? Somebody please tell me!!!
Here is a fun quiz--if you don't know what Firefly is, don't be a mugua and head to your local video store and find out, goramit. You don't know what you are missing.
You are Kaylee, the ship's mechanic. You are cute
as a button, chipper, cheerfull and optimistic,
though you panic in a fight. Engines make you
hot and you prefer having sex next to a big,
Which Firefly character are you?

Char's nose is healing nicely. You could almost mistake her black eye for a shadow. She is such a resilient kid. She has to be, with Emmett for a big brother.
What a nice, quiet Sunday afternoon. Both kids are sleeping, Rich is puddling with a computer, bread is whirring in the bread machine and there is a lovely smell coming out of the oven from an apple crisp baking. Time to turn off the computer and pick up my knitting needles.

Mom and Dad are in town, so we will get to go out for dinner and show off Char's new injury. Poor Mom, she just came home from working the graveyard shift, hopped in the car and hasn't gone to bed yet. (Good thing Dad drove)
Knitting group last night was surreal--three of us showed up with three different projects all using the same type of yarn!!! We looked like an infomercial. We had a good giggle about the yarn, then went on to giggle about more important things: S-E-X (tee hee, snicker, snicker)

We went to playgroup this morning so we got out of the house. We'll see how this afternoon goes. Yesterday I got to witness a full-on nuclear meltdown because I couldn't get a DVD to work on the TV. My boy is hard-core addicted. Is there a 12-step program for this? How many times can one Baby Einstein DVD be shown?? We got our first shipment of DVDs from our online club--tonight we will be watching M*A*S*H after the kiddies go down.

I have been a hat-making machine lately. I addition to this one (Firefly fans should recognize it), a matching one has been made for the hubby and there is a third hat on needles for the MIL of a different design. Winter is here and I am taking personal responsability for the prevention of frost-bitten ears in my family.
Today is going to be a hard day. Baby Charlotte got her 6-month vaccinations today and we cut the cable. Emmett will be going into withdrawl from his beloved Treehouse channel and Momma wil be suffering Food Network DTs. We wanted to minimize exposure to commercials before the kiddies get old enough to develop the "gimmes". We are not cutting out TV. In fact, we now subscribe to an online DVD rental club so we can still watch TV shows, just no commercials. The rabbit-ears we had laying around the house don't work, so off to the store I go so we can get CBC--the children's programming in the morning allows me to get my chores done!!! In a few days we will be getting our first shipment of DVDs from http://www.zip.ca This is our first foray into the land of online DVD rental, so I hope it is going to work out well for us. I am a big girl, I can live without BBC Canada and the Food network, can't I?? I can do it. I can do it. I can do it?
