Me & Baby Girl 2. This morning.
Also, thanking Target for having one cute t-shirt that I like (so I got it in white, too). It's lightweight, and cute, and I love it. I have a severe shortage of stuff that will work through this pregnancy, so I get way too excited about anything that will work.
Speaking of things, and trips, and dates. My first little girl will be TWO here in about....6 weeks? Or so? And whoa. I don't really know if I've mentioned this before, but May is a crazy time in our family with celebrations, and birthdays, etc. So we decided to take some time over Emeline's Birthday, my Mom's birthday, Mothers Day AND my parents anniversary to go on a special trip to Disney World. Yes, all four celebrations will take place in Disney. Because, why the heck not celebrate at the happiest place on earth?
We're excited. So much so. I've only been to Disney one other time and I was 21 years old. Emeline can't stop talking about Mickey & Minnie, and while she won't remember the trip per-say, there will be loads of pictures for her to look back on. So, there won't be any big birthday party, because why does she need all that if she's going to spend her big day in Magic Kingdom, having breakfast with characters, you know? We can't wait.
So my little girl and I? I guess we're twins or something. A few months ago I ran across this photo of me (on the left) around the same age as Eme. I couldn't get over how similar my daughter looked to me at this age. So, naturally I had to compare them side by side. Then, yesterday I put it next to one of Emeline in piggy tails, and a similar little squishy face. Dead. Too cute. And I guess this means she will now go through the awkward middle school years like her momma did. Poor kid.
|Sigh. I love her.|
We had a really nice Friday morning out today, since Declan is off working the 2nd shift tonight. That rarely happens, but when it does we have to take advantage of our time together in the mornings. We had breakfast at a favorite diner, and ran some random errands to k-mart and home depot.
Now that we're staying here at the house for at least another year or two, naturally we can't sit still. That's just how we are with house projects. So we're getting a rock patio put in below our deck, just to give us a little more outdoor space to play, maybe install a swing (or two) for Emeline (and her sissy). We're also (finally) putting a storm door on the front. And of course I'll be digging a vegetable garden, somehow, some-way, because tomatoes in your front garden look hideous. Oh, townhouse living. But we make it work.
It's gorgeous out today, but this weekend is calling for rain, rain and more rain for us. I guess we can't complain after all the days of sunshine we've had, yea? :)
Have a great weekend!
