One Year Ago... Our New Family


One year ago, we came home from the hospital with our brand new family member! I remember that we looked forward to being home. Husband drove super slow on the way home. It was very much like the end of
Knocked Up. Either way, we got home safely and just stared at the baby. She was so teeny and slept so much. She was such a good, little sleeper.

She loved being swaddled. She would hang out on her pillow all swaddled up all day long. She was such an easy baby really. We couldn't get enough of her. We would just stare at her and fight over who got to hold her and who got to kiss her. There were a lot of cries of "quit bogarting the baby!" That's one thing that hasn't changed in a year!

Let Her Eat Cake!


As promised, we are officially changing Baby's name to Little Miss on the blog. Her name, obviously, in real life, will remain the same. She looks less and less like my little baby everyday!

Anyway, tonight, we wanted to celebrate Little Miss's official birthday. So, I picked up a cupcake from
Cake Love. Actually, I picked up three, but that's not the point. We fed Little Miss her favorite dinner of pork and made her balance out the pork with string beans. Then, after she was done with that, we sang Happy Birthday and gave her a vanilla on chocolate cupcake. It seemed like a big hit! She played with the cupcake for a bit and ate the entire (half) cupcake! Directly after, we plunked her straight into the bath.

After the bath, she perked up from the massive sugar high so we let her stay up. Husband had hoped to watch
It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown with her, but she had other plans. She wanted to bounce all over the room and get into everything. After about a half hour, the sugar high started to wear off and Husband put her to bed - though as good of a job of falling asleep as she.
So, one year down. We can't believe it. I'm sure every year will be special, but this one was extra special.

Tag! I guess I'm It!

One Year Ago... Football Sunday Gone Awry

Oh, I had grand plans. I worked until October 26 last year. I had the weekend and Monday off until I was scheduled for a c-section on Tuesday morning. Husband and I had a great date day planned for Monday. On Saturday, a friend and I saw Michael Clayton. By the end of the movie, though, I was feeling kind of rumbly in my tumbly. Based on the symptoms, I figured I ate something questionable.

On Sunday, Husband woke up to watch football. I was feeling slightly sluggish and achy. I figured it was because I was gigantic. Around 1PM, I took a warm bath. I still felt kind of bad. My back hurt. I figured it was because our mattress was like 10 years old and I just spent a half hour in the uncomfortable bathtub. The next couple of hours I'll skip over, but let's just say I felt bad. Then, my back hurt and even I figured something was definitely going on. Then, I figured something was definitely going on like every 20 minutes. Then, every 10 minutes. At that point, I decided to tell Husband that his football Sunday may not go as planned. So, we kind of hung out on the couch and waited. Within a short time, we went from every 10 minutes to every 7 minutes. We called the doctor and left a message. Then, we just decided to head to the hospital in the middle of the Jets game - so Baby should know how important she was because her daddy missed the Jets game! That's ok... I inserted the photo of the missed game to this blog. The photo makes the Jets look like they played well and won (they didn't).

Short story even shorter, we got to the hospital, had a c-section as soon as my doctor got there around 9PM and then got admitted around midnight. Happy birthday, Baby!

Baby Feeds Herself Dinner

I may have been nervous that Baby doesn't feed herself. She has fed herself before. She feeds herself teething biscuits. She's fed herself pieces of food when she's been too impatient to wait for others to feed her. However, she doesn't feed herself on a regular basis. So, tonight, we sat her near the couch and placed food on her tray to see what she would do. I was nervous because she really doesn't like the tray, but she did really well as soon as she saw the pork (her favorite dinner). She even ate some string beans. Below is a video showing her try to feed herself. She had been doing really well until I started filming. You'll notice the first bunch of pieces fall out of her fist right before it gets to her mouth. Then, finally, success! She even gives herself a round of applause.

We Love You, Nana!

On October 25, 2008, we got the call that Nana passed away. Nana is my great-grandmother and Baby's great-great-grandmother. She was 102 born in 1906. The photo to the left is from her 100th birthday party.

Last summer, we went to visit her. She got to meet Baby which was nice. All the photos below are from this past summer - with Baby and with Sister and me. One of the other photos is some of her great-grandchildren and her great-great-grandchildren. The other photo is the 5 generation photo of Nana, Mom, Grandfather, Baby, Sister, Nephew and me.



There are so many great memories of Nana. I always remembered that she was pretty no-nonsense. She wasn't prone to dramatics. For instance, I cut open my foot once as a (really) little kid, and her response was basically to suck it up because it was just a cut. Don't get me wrong, she'd patch it up and give snuggles, but the hysterics were always going too far. You also could never change her mind about anything. She had definite views about everything and everybody and that was that. She believed one thing and, if you disagreed, well, you were stupid.

It was very special that she could make it to both Sister and my weddings and unfortunate that she won't make the other great-grandchildren's. It should actually be noted that the other great-grandchildren are a bit younger, but when I say that, it makes me feel old. Speaking of weddings, I forgot to add that Nana was there when Husband proposed. She gave her blessing immediately. About 4-5 years later, Husband and I still had not had a child. All the support she held vanished as she informed us that we were hopeless. After all, she had a baby the first year she married. Because times were different, she understood that we didn't have a baby the first year we married, but it was ridiculous how long we went. It was nice to show her we weren't hopeless.

Here are some facts pulled from Wikipedia:

When Nana was born Theodore Roosevelt was President of the United States and Charles W. Fairbanks was Vice-President. Since then, there have been 17 other presidents.

A First Class Stamp was 2 cents. A First Class Stamp now is 42 cents.

The population in 1906 was 85,450,000. The population now is 305,513,784.

Other notable births in 1906 -
Bugsy Siegel, Lon Chaney, Jr., Ozzie Nelson, and Eddie Albert.

Notable deaths in 1906 -
Henrik Ibsen, Paul Cezanne, Susan B. Anthony, and Pierre Curie.

We're all lucky to have known Nana and all better people for having been related to such a special woman.



Weekend Update - Party Like it's Your Birthday!

Last Friday, Husband I cleaned and tidied like mad people. We then took a break to watch Friday Night Lights. Because it hasn't aired on network television yet, I won't say any spoilers, but I'll just say that this season has been fantastic, and this episode was really good. I've become such a fan of Gaius Charles over the years.

On Saturday, we woke up early to finish cleaning and get ready for the party. Baby was great. She took a pretty good morning nap. Then, Sister came early and helped a lot with the preparation. I made most of the food planned. It turned out to be just enough so I'm glad I didn't make everything. Baby entertained everyone who showed up. Nephew was extremely helpful, too. He had some good, quality time with Husband. They're buddies and haven't seen each other much in the last month or so. Baby was very lucky. So many people came and showed their love.


Baby got a lot of gifts. She got a lot of adorable clothes. She already played with some of her toys. Plus, we look forward to reading some of the books she received.

Baby had her first taste of ice cream. We bought an ice cream cake. She ate a huge slice and loved it. She had some leftover ice cream cake last night and didn't seem to be as in love with it. She was also cranky last night so that may have been why.

On Sunday, I needed a lot of sleep. Then, Baby took a nap with me. We got up and had lunch (or, in my case, breakfast). She had some chicken and tomatoes. Then, she went grocery shopping with me. We went home and took another nap. So, it was a pretty uneventful Sunday. Baby's been very clingy and needy lately. She's been loving Husband and even fell asleep last night with her arms tightly wrapped around me. Poor thing. Hopefully, it's just a phase and she'll be her independent self once again.
Tomorrow is Baby's actual birthday. We plan to have a little family celebration. We may luck out with the messy cake photo, too. Plus, Friday is her first Halloween in costume.

It's Not You, It's Me... well, ok, It's You - You Suck


I love
this article on breaking up with tv shows. I can't say I agree with the examples, but I agree with the concept. I never had a relationship with Fringe and still hang with True Blood. I agree that the latter is not that good, but it does have a way of keeping you guessing. I get sucked in against my better judgment. Regardless, I have parted ways with many television shows this year and in the past. I did have a couple of first dates with new shows this year, but we didn't click. In addition, there are some shows that I'd rather just be friends with and not commit to right away.

I was pretty done with
Heroes. We just were just drifting apart for quite some time. It came along at a good time and, even though we didn't have much in common, I stuck it out for longer than I should have. I also should say that I have an on-again/off-again relationship with CSI:. I watch it once in awhile. I always enjoy it, but it always gets the lowest priority so it's my Plan B if there are no other options on a Thursday - strictly the equivalent of a TV booty call.

It always saddens me a little to say goodbye though. I mean, I don't understand how some relationships stay strong or get stronger (see
Friday Night Lights - which you can totally watch online on NBC's website or here) yet some relationships just get stale (see every show not currently on my DVR Playlist). I guess you can't always keep the excitement level up or the intrigue. Pretty soon, you're jaded and just fed up with the whole process. It'll be interesting to see where my new relationship with Crusoe goes. It's totally just a physical thing (Philip Winchester is hot!) It may get nipped in the bud early as many of my tv relationships are doomed despite my interest, but I still love the anticipation and excitement.

Apologies for the entire extended metaphor.

Feed Me... oh, Forget It, I'll Feed Myself


Baby fed herself yesterday, but I wasn't able to capture it on camera. She did it today, but she was too quick the first time. I barely got this on video. Still, if you watch it more than once, you can tell she has a fork and food on the fork. You can tell she puts the fork in her mouth and, when she takes it out, there is no food! Again, it's a quick video. Enjoy!

Word Collage

I picked this up from the Susan Wiggs Blog. It's a fun little way to sum up the month of October in a pretty, creative way. You can click on the image below to see the full word collage. I may make this a new part of the blog.


Weekend Update - Family Fun

On Friday, we picked up Baby early and went to visit friends. We stayed out way too late and (I) drank way too much. We went home around 1:30AM. Baby was great and slept in her stroller while we had fun. I went to put Baby to bed and we fell asleep on the floor. We stayed there until Husband came to put both of us to bed. So, that made for an interesting Saturday morning.

On Saturday, we had plans with Brother-in-Law and Sister-in-Law. We met at
Butler's Orchard. The weather was beautiful. We took a great photo of Baby next to a pumpkin and, as I clicked the photo, realized Baby only had one shoe. We had both when we got out of the car. Sister-in-Law found the shoe so we were good to go. We made fairly quick work of finding a pumpkin. After we were done at the patch, we had to take a brief stop into the store.

Last time we went to this orchard, I found really yummy mulled cider spices, but I did not find any this year. I did manage to find other goodies. I found All-American Apple Pie popcorn (like caramel corn but we dried apples, graham crackers and apple pie spice), chocolate-covered pretzels, and cider. I love cider. I know cider is available all year round now, but it's better in the Fall.

On Saturday night, Brother-in-Law and Sister-in-Law came over for dinner. We made a lot of food. This is good because Husband is going out of town this week so maybe I won't have to cook now. I don't know who I'm kidding. I wouldn't have cooked anyway! Then, we hung out and watched
Saturday Night Live. It was the first time I had watched without fast forwarding so I was a little disappointed. I do think Adele did a good job. I'm not sure if I love her or not, but I think her sound and songs are unique and sometimes that's worth it right there.

On Sunday, Baby and I escaped football and went to Mom and Dad's house. Baby got into almost everything. She took a nap on the way out there (on top of a very long morning nap). Then, Sister and Nephew came over. Sister and I snuck out to go shopping while the kids bonded with their grandparents and each other. We hit some really good sales. I picked up a present for someone else as well as two dresses for myself. Then, we stayed for dinner. Later, we went home. Baby was a great sleeper all weekend - probably because we had her on the run the entire time.


Next weekend's update will be fun. It will be Baby's first birthday party! Then, the following weekend is Halloween. So, busy time, but (hopefully) lots of fun photos.

Determined - it is Baby's middle name

I feel like I need to preface this by saying our apartment has a little corner where I keep junk. There are shoes, cases of soda that I haven't put away yet, random things. Baby rarely goes to that corner. Tonight, she did. She decided she wanted my phone. It gets plugged in and charged and rests on top of a cabinet. Currently, there is a moat of shoes around the cabinet, 2 cases of soda, her car seat and 3 photo albums on the floor near the cabinet. She climbed the albums like stairs to grab the phone. I didn't record it the first time, but I had her recreate it for the camera. She's more sure of herself, but the effect is the same. Enjoy Baby's craftiness and our messy apartment!

Happy Baby Once Again

We got angel baby back tonight. Baby was either teething or had a little bug yesterday and last night. Last night, she had a slight fever, but today, she had a nice, long nap and lots of fluids (not to mention a little Tylenol). So, tonight, she was the perfect baby we know and love. She was a little fussy, but it's probably because she's still catching up on her rest. She was back to mischief, er, herself this evening - plus went right down to bed perfectly.

Mark Your Calendars

I must have misunderstood. Wednesday is National Grouch Day, but I thought it was the whole week. Baby must have gotten the same memo I did. I'll have to tell her later that it's only Wednesday that she can be grouchy. So, mark your calendars, Wednesday is National Grouch Day. It is not, I repeat not, National Grouch Week.

Oh, the weather outside is... confusing...

I mean, seriously, it was beautiful last week. It was Fall. I even picked up Baby a nice, lightweight jacket on Friday night. She wore it during our walk on Saturday. It was October and the Fall weather was here unlike last year when I wore a t-shirt straight into the hospital on Baby's birthday. Then, this week hit. It's supposed to be in the 80's all week, 85 degrees tomorrow! It's crazy! I was going to switch my closets over this weekend. I knew there was a reason I procrastinated. Still, I hope it's back to Fall when we go to the Farm to get apples and cider and pumpkins this weekend and not in tank tops and flip flops!

Baby and her Costume Changes

Baby's new thing is picking up any piece of clothing and trying to put it on. However, she tries to put on everything over her head. This is especially funny because she doesn't wear a lot of things that go over her head. 90% of her wardrobe is pajamas which zip up the front. Funnier yet is that sometimes, she tries to put pants on over her head. Her coordination isn't so great (well, I suppose it is for an 11-month-old) so she just kind of tries to push her head through. Sometimes, the article of clothing just goes right behind her and lands in a heap. Sometimes, it lands around her shoulders. Sometimes, it just sits on top of her head like in the photo. The video below shows her attempt to dress herself. It's a short video because, as soon as I start photographing her or recording her, she stops what she's doing to grab the camera.

Weekend Update


We had a weekend. So I'm told. We did absolutely nothing. On Friday, I stopped at
Carter's to take advantage of its 50%-70% off sale. On Saturday, Baby and I walked to CVS for some things. On Sunday, I changed Baby's closet to only contain clothes that fit her. I mean, the weekend just flew, and I can't name one thing that we did. I did dress Baby up today. Husband thinks that's why she was grouchy, but I don't think it was. She was dressed in the costume just because we had it as a hand-me-down. It is not her actual Halloween costume (which we did try on today as well). Anyway, weekend was pathetic. Next week starts up busy weekends again so we wanted to enjoy a relaxing weekend. Sadly, Baby did not get the memo that this weekend was supposed to be relaxing.

Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Somebody in the apartment had a Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day - and it wasn't Husband or me. I didn't have time to take a photo today, but Baby basically looked like the above photo but she can crawl and hit now. I don't know what crawled up her diaper today, but nothing made her happy from about 4PM on. She was a perfectly normal baby up until then. She took naps though brief ones. She was eating. Then, she just turned evil. I mean, I think her face turned into Jack Jack's from the end of The Incredibles. Sorry, I couldn't find a photo of Jack Jack, but trust me. Husband and I both earned a good night's sleep tonight.

Strike!

I interrupt the regularly scheduled blog post to say that I bowled my all-time highest score last night. I bowled a 135. My average is about 85 as a comparison. My previous high score this year was 100 though I made it into the 110's before). This is very exciting to me. I also won my game last night which contributed to a team win. And, yes, the photo above is exactly what I wear and how I look when I bowl.

Happy Anniversay, Husband!

Some last details: Our wedding song was "Still the One" by Shania Twain. Our last song of the evening was "Could Not Ask for More" by Edwin McCain. It rained that day. I've been looking at old photos, and the day really was a lot of fun. It was really great that so many family and friends came to celebrate with us. It is true that the day just flew. I remember the strangest details and the rest is a blur. I remember I snagged my fake nails, and it hurt a lot. Many photos have me holding ice to my nail. I remember having the most delicious drink and then not knowing what it was so I couldn't ever ask for it again. I spent the rest of the night trying to find that drink again and never could. I remember shampooing my hair three times to get all of hairspray out. I just remember having fun. I always did like our cake, too. I was glad that I was able to work in my favorite flower.

Would I do anything differently? I don't think I would have gotten the fake nails. I think I would have had a professional cut my bangs before the big day. Oh, and I would have eaten that day. I didn't have breakfast because I always choose extra sleep over breakfast, and Dad brought lunch after my makeup was done and I didn't want to mess anything up. So, I was hungry by the time the ceremony started. I do have to say that the food at the reception was yummy, and I think I ate my weight that night. Maybe that's why I lost the little hook to my dress. It just popped off from all my eating!

Anyway, it was a great night. It seems like yesterday and yet very long ago at the same time. Happy ninth anniversary, Husband!

Where? When? In What? - All the Important Questions


Part II of The Wedding Story

We got married in my
church. We knew we were going to be married on a long weekend holiday. Our first choice was Memorial Day weekend and ended up being Columbus Day weekend. The next step was to choose a location for the reception. Luckily, my college roommate's mother had a list of reception places in our area. So, we narrowed the list down and visited each one over a weekend. You have to remember this was before everybody had a website. We had to call, make appointments, and physically visit in order to receive actual information. So, we visited a few places. We didn't really love them. Then, we had two last appointments really close to each other. One place was essentially closed. There was no one to meet us. It was lovely, but it was a bad impression to not have someone make the appointment set. So, we showed up to the next appointment extremely early. They greeted us and met with us then and there. We loved it and ended up having our reception at Anthony's Ocean View.

I chose my wedding dress after two brief stops at bridal stores. I had it narrowed down to two after about an hour of searching. I chose one because I hated one store and refused to shop there. I made the right decision. It really was easy planning.

10/10 - How Hard is that Date to Remember?


Extremely difficult is the answer. Our wedding anniversary is October, 10, and I have trouble remembering it ever since we got married. There's no explanation why.

I thought, in the days leading up to our anniversary, I will (try to) recall some memories of that day. I do know that it was fairly smooth planning. As with all weddings, there were some bumps along the way, but we had nearly a 2 year engagement so we had plenty of time to get our ducks in a row.

The engagement was romantic. It was on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in December. It was cold. I was cold. I had blisters from walking around the city in heels. We were on our way to dinner. I actually thought the proposal would occur during dinner, but I figured it out as we got out of the car on the National Mall. So, I may have may have made things a little more difficult for Husband. Long story short, he kneeled down and proposed. I said yes. We then went to dinner.

Although we were living in Virginia, we knew we'd go home and get married in Connecticut.

To be continued...

Mark Your Calendars!

Wednesday, October 8, 2008 is National Bring Teddy Bear to Work Day. So, on Wednesday, grab teddy before you head out the door. At least with this day, unlike next April 23 when it is the next Bring Your Child to Work Day, you don't have to worry about paper products scattered all over your office, permanent markers used on your walls or long-distance phone calls made on your office phone. Teddy should just sit there quietly minding his own business.

I actually already have a bear at work. He was a gift from a co-worker. It is a Bear-ista from Starbucks.

Weekend Update - Where did the weekend go?

Last weekend flew by! On Friday, I had to pick up Baby from my parents' house. Then, we visited In-Laws and went home to eat dinner and relax after a busy week.

On Saturday, Husband woke up early to take Baby to visit Father-in-Law and go grocery shopping. We exchanged the car and baby. So, Husband ate lunch and then visited Father-in-Law again, Baby and I picked up Sister-in-Law and grabbed lunch and went shopping. I bought Baby a dress to wear for her birthday party, Thanksgiving and as many times as possible until she grows out of it. Then, we went back to Brother-in-Law and Sister-in-Law's apartment to hang out and eat barbecue. Later, we went back to visit Father-in-Law and then got to bed late.

On Sunday, Husband woke up to have pancakes with Baby, the usual
Sunday morning routine. In the process, a glass of OJ fell, shattered and fell all over the carpet. So, I got up to amuse Baby and help. I figured, at that point, I'd get up and get ready, too. As soon as the carpet was clean, and I was almost ready to go, Husband cleaned the carpet and a picture frame fell off the wall. So, he ran out the door while I cleaned the glass and floor. Truly, a comedy of errors. Without the comedy part. I got Baby ready to go and met Mother, Sister, Nephew and a friend for brunch at
The Front Page for brunch. Then, we went into the city to see Jim Henson's Fantastic World. It was a small, traveling exhibit, but I was glad I got to see it. Baby slept through the entire exhibit (as shown to your right). You can click here to see if it is coming to a town near you in the next 2 years. Later that night, we visited Father-in-Law again and then got Baby to bed.

It was a crazy weekend, one of those weekends where you need another weekend afterwards so you can recover. This week should be relatively calm at least.

Weekend Update - Part 2

Last weekend seemed to fly, and I could hardly tell you what happened because it happened so quickly. On Friday, we went grocery shopping as usual. I think I went to bed early.

On Saturday, I woke up when my mother called to tell me the news about
Paul Newman. I, then, woke up and got ready. I had previously made plans to hang with Sister and Nephew. We slightly revised the plan to hang at Mom and Dad's house. So, we did. Baby and I went out there and hung out. Baby barely slept that morning (and later, barely slept in the afternoon). We snacked and then took a walk. We stayed for dinner and then headed home. As soon as we got home, Baby ate dinner and pretty much went to sleep. I stayed up to watch Saturday Night Live and finish my book before bed.

On Sunday, Husband woke up with Baby and then brought her into our bed when it was time for her morning nap. So, she fell asleep in bed with me so I just stayed in bed. We both woke up around 1PM (she after a nap and I for the first time all morning/afternoon). I took a shower while she ate lunch. Then, I ate. Then, around 3:30, we took another nap until a little after 6PM. We ate dinner and then she went back to sleep for the night. I actually stayed up much later. Much, much later. I couldn't sleep almost all night. It was worth it.

So, that was the weekend. It was still a good weekend.
