So, I went out last night. We had one of those nights where Emeline went to bed at 6:30pm. Yea, one of those nights. Meaning that our day yesterday? Was a long one. Anyway. Right after she went to bed, I handed the monitor to Declan and said, "I'm going out". I met up with my sister and we just sat at Panera, for a few hours, and talked. No baby to feed, or entertain, or interrupt my thoughts or take my attention--I was just me. And it was nice. I need to do that more.
I freaking love my kid to death. Everyone knows that. But I don't get out enough without her, and sometimes I just need it. So it felt awesome to just be out childless and it's amazing what it does for me. Silly, but true.
Last week I mentioned the possibility of Declan and I going away for some mini-vacation type thing. Well, we won't be doing St. Lucia (for lots of reasons, but I do appreciate all your feedback-thanks!)--but, we are still totally trying to make something else work. It will only be a 4'ish day trip, and definitely without-child, but we will totally make it worth our while. When I know more details about what/when we decide, I'll share. For now they are just serious thoughts and the planning is being worked out. I hope, I hope, I hope it goes as planned, but we'll see.
She's obsessed with my water cup. Obsessed. She sees it, and she instantly says "MMMMMmmmm!!" I have to admit, I secretly love how much she loves water. It's probably because we don't give her juice, but the girl thinks water is a treat, and its hysterical. I kind of wish I felt that way about water. It feels like it's a chore to drink it.
So on that note, some photos. (Shocked much?)
|She takes this water-drinking thing serious. Look at that face.|
|Oh, you know, Ma--just blogging.|
Seriously, when did my baby get so huge? Sigh.
Have an awesome weekend!!
[SMS will be up tomorrow. See you then!]
