Friday Favorites

I've been sitting here, racking my brain, trying to think of what went on this week... boy, when you're stuck in on little corner of the house for weeks on end everything really blends together.

1. Well, I have managed to mostly catch up on the laundry. Doesn't sound like much, but it's really rather exciting. Really.

2. I have actually gotten quite a bit done in regards to the move-- we might actually be ready to fly the coop on time. This is one of those times that I'm grateful to be efficient, since my windows of opportunity to get things accomplished can be so small. Don't hate me because I'm organized.

3. I have figured out that it is animal protein that has been giving Edith all her tummy troubles. Well, most of them anyway (sorry about the onion last night, Edith!). I toyed with going vegan (we are planning on going mostly vegetarian as a family already), but I don't think that I have the know-how to go vegan and make sure that Edith and I both get what we need. So, since I can't have dairy without causing an urp-fest, we'll have to deal with a little meat here and there. It's getting me to try out new foods and recipes, though.

4. By far the best thing to happen this week (but also kind of scary)... as of Wednesday night, Edith is off oxygen! It's so much easier to snuggle her now. Yay!

Here are a few pictures of the supertired-abouttogetmad-awfullycute-oxygenfree baby:

(I don't like what the outfit does for her coloring, but after two pooh-blowouts today, our options are limited)

Looking a little sleepy...

"What? You're gonna take my picture?"

"Can we be done now?"


Okay. We can be done now.

Can't wait to give her a snuggle. How much does she weigh now?

Couldn't tell you, Mom. She'll be weighed at her 2 month appt. next week and then we'll know.

1. I do hate you for being organized.
2. Winning laundry battles is cause for celebration.
3. Yay for baby girl! So wonderful.

I love the "seriously?" one. Yeah, it does pay to be organized. I live by that motto. Then you're ready for anything and get blindsided much less often! :) HOORAY for Edith going off oxygen!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!
