cutest thing ever:  little girls streaming bubbles out of their father's convertible this afternoon.


latest addictions...

So, K made me read Twilight, and I think she had it in for me.  Completely addicted.  Read the whole stinking series in about a week.  Horrific writing, but fantastically absorbing.  

Also, R got me started on MI-5 -- a BBC series entitled Spooks when it aired in the UK.  Love it.  Really, should be ordering gumdrops or something, but can't tear myself away from Netflix.


Baby Presents

So, it seems that people have very different ideas of appropriate baby shower presents.  I think that it should always be something for the mother.  The baby's getting enough stuff, and the mother is the one doing all the work.  I'm considering enrolling a friend of mine in a beer of the month club starting the day she stops breastfeeding, but I think a year of anticipation is cruel.  

R always buys a huge stuffed animal for the baby.  One was about 4 feet, but I've mananged to restrain her since then.  The current iteration is still larger than the baby, but more managable.  

My father believed in giving mobiles.  He was very irked that mobiles are designed for the adult's perspecitve, not the baby.  In other words, they're cute looking straight on, but when you're looking up, they're kinda boring.  He always picked mobiles that were interesting from the bottom. 


is it really contagious?

Fabulous weekend with B & W...  So nice to see old friends happy (and pregnant!).  

Unfortunatly, R has decided that I'm not allowed to be around any other pregnant women -- apparently, it gives me ideas.  I think if she could remove all small children from my daily interactions, she would.  Probably replace them with thirteen year olds with bitchy attitudes and exposed belly buttons.  


A love affair

The wee G is here for a stay -- with K&D, of course.  Rocky is not quite sure how he feels about it.  But he keeps coming back for more!
