There's just something especially adorable about tiny jeans!


There's lots of noise coming from the basement. Both the plumber guy
and the electrician have been working all morning. I'm really excited
about the new water heater.

Eye on the ball

We put Vi in these cute jammies some friends gifted to us and I was
playing with her when Scott said something so funny I almost peed my

Janie: "Mommy's going to get you! Keep your eye on the ball!"
Scott: "That never works!"
Janie: " lol! You're right, it never worked for me either."
Scott: "What good does it do if you can't hit it? Had my eye on it
and watched as it zoomed past me..."

Sorry Vi, with our genes, I don't think you're destined to be a
professional athlete.

Sleeping in

Here's a pic of us doing our best to ignore the trash truck noise this
morning. Why is it that sleeping in when you should be getting up is
so delicious?

Sick baby

Our little one, who is usually calm and happy, fussed all night and
all day. It breaks my heart to know she's feeling bad and there's
nothing I can do. We went to see the Dr. today and she tested
negative for flu, so that's s relief, but they're not sure why
she's miserable and having fevers. I sure hope she gets better soon
for both our sakes because mommy is not accustomed to the torture of
her inconsolable crying.

So, we went to Austin

As may be evidenced by the Blue Bell post and Janie at Alma de Mujer, the family was in Austin last weekend. Janie's NHLI class had a reunion, and Violette and I tagged along. I can't say it was the best trip I've ever gone on, as the only bits of Austin I got to see were the airport, a Wal-Mart, a gas station, the retreat center, and Flaco's Tacos, but it wasn't all bad. After a pretty hellish start, things got better, and Saturday was actually fun for me, hanging out with Violette in our cabin, going for walks with her in the baby bjorne rig around the grounds. Janie had a good time and left happy, which was the entire point of the trip, so all in all it was a success. And I've been told I have beaucoup brownie points to spend. Not sure yet what they're good for. Maybe I'll ask J to make me some brownies.
