Just popping in for a second to apologize for not posting, and for not responding to questions left in the comments. I am hoping to catch a breath sometime later tonight, or (more likely) later this week. Between taking care of the family, doing laundry (until midnight last night - but I got it ALL done!!), translating an article, and making the prizes for the felt food giveaway, this week is just slipping away much too fast!
I have added a few new blogs to my blog roll on the right. Click over and check them out, and leave a nice comment while you are there. I know I am encouraged by reading other ladies' blogs, and have learned so much. I am really thankful for all of you who take the time to blog and let us "peek" into your life and learn from you.
Best news so far today: I got my camera's lens back from repair! It was covered by the warranty, and I can't believe that it went so fast! They had to send the lens off to Nikon, and yet, I got it back in a little over one week. Very happy indeed! Of course, who did I immediately have to capture on film before she adds another inch (or roll of baby fat) overnight? Anna, of course. She is one very sweet and easy baby - she just goes to sleep lying on the sofa like that, all the noise and chaos around her notwithstanding. Actually, I think she likes it, because she wakes up if it is too quiet.
Johnny said something really funny about her today. He told me: "Mommy, Anna is really polite. Every time I start talking to her, she stops cooing." Three months old and well-mannered! Ha!
More later (I hope).
P.S. Dear friend (you know who you are), did you know that Moon Sand is listed as one of the top 10 passive aggressive presents for parents? I guess it's official - you really, secretly, hate me.
P.P.S. Dear other friend (you know who you are), did you notice that list also mentions stink bombs?
P.P.P.S. Dear all other friends, for the sake of my sanity, please refrain from giving the kids any of the other gifts suggested on that list. They will be majorly bummed, and I will be eternally grateful. Just kidding! I think...
