I worked on Baby Girl's scrapbook Friday night with a friend. I actually got two pages done - one I think came out well, and one was a disaster. But it's little more than a filler page, so I'm leaving it alone. When I'm done with the book, I might go back and do something else. I wish I had more time to work on my books, but I do enjoy my nights! I'm going with some other friends in two more weeks for a night of scrapping. I think Andrew is getting a little sick of me disappearing every Friday, but I like it :)
Baby Girl is going to get a little cousin this summer, and luckily for us it is going to be a boy! We need a little boy in this family, and this meant that BG got a bunch of her older cousin's hand me downs. I was pretty excited about that, we were having a bit of a pants problem lately. She had about 5 pairs of pants that actually fit, and now we have at least a dozen! I love hand me downs!!! And I'm thrilled to have a nephew, little boys are so much fun.
We spent an hour at Babies R Us this morning and came home with a new stroller for BG. We ultimately decided on an umbrella stroller for her. We didn't go with a travel system when she was born because we thought they were too big and bulky - we used the car seat and a Snap n Go. When we were wheeling the full sized strollers up and down the aisles of BRU today, we still thought they were too bulky. I guess we just aren't full sized stroller or travel system people! So this is BG's ride for the next few years:
It's the Maclaren Quest Sport. She seemed to like it in the store, hopefully it continues to meet her strolling needs. Now we just need to get a jogging stroller down the cape and we will be all set!
Is anyone else looking forward to Parenthood on NBC once the Olympics are over? I think it looks like it could end up being a good show. I'm fearful that I will always see Lauren Graham as Loralei Gilmore, but that probably won't happen to people who haven't seen every episode of Gilmore Girls at least 3 times.
I am SO DONE with winter. SO DONE. I know, I know, I live in New England, I should be used to it. It hasn't been a particular snowy winter here, though it has been almost everywhere else. But it's just so cold and so dark and I've been stuck inside for so many months. On Saturday I was going out of my skin and I was thisclose to bundling up my niece and taking her out to the park to play. I'm praying for a semi warmish March. I need to get out of this house!
