Gorgeous Day

Noelle and her Pooh.
Just took a walk with N and the gorgeous weather has just lifted my spirits. I am definitely affected by the weather and now I am feeling so darn cheery I had to share it with the world.

I do have class later but even that can't get me down. Ha!

A note for all you procrastinators out there...tonight at midnight EST is the latest you can enter the giveaway, so get on it if you haven't yet! Tell yer friends!

It's Five A.M. and I can't find a bottle

Last night was horrible. N was SOOOOOOOOOOO hyper and then SOOOOOOOOOOOO sleepy and she was fighting it harder than I have ever seen her fight it. We ended up passing out on my bed. She woke up a little while ago but I soothed her back to sleep and now I can't find the bottle that I need to give her. Where could it be? Must retrace steps from last feeding...sigh.

Three happier bits:

Homemade by Jill is hosting a giveaway for my shop! I am so excited and grateful for her generosity. Be sure to check it out/enter to win! WoOt WOot!

I am loving this playmat/foam blocks set that I got for N. It was pretty decently priced, and has a lot of fun differnt textures, and is soft enough so that N can roam freely, no worries. The only thing I don't like about it is that it comes with 26 letters. Obviously this can't be helped, duh, but when you want to make a nice 5x5 square it is annoying that you have a leftover block. I'm anal, I know. I left out the "X" so that "Z" would be on the mat. "Z" is my favorite letter, after all. "ZUNS!"

and...*love of my life* D is coming home today. :o)

Nick and Norah

Watching this movie made me remember why I love this city so much...I am not going to even start trying to wax poetic about it, but it was nice to be reminded.

Lacy White Hat

It is actually 5 in the morning. Noelle really knows her daddy's not here. She was yowling away but I just gave her a bottle and now I can't sleep...sigh.

Here is the lacy white hat with pink ruffle flower.

Noelle updates

Noelle loves to crawl backwards. She's able to do the forward thing, but she really has got the backwards thing down. Is this an indication of a rebellious spirit? Perhaps.

I'm sure many of you are familiar with these Bumpkins bibs, but boy do I love them!

Small Moment

The babe is knocking her Pooh Bear against the rails of the crib.

He's going to need counseling.

Grilled Cheese Perfection - For Ji

There are few joys greater than the perfect ooze of a grilled cheese, attained here using American cheese, soft white bread, a dash of butter and a dash of olive oil (to keep the butter from burning). Here's to all my fellow fatties out there who have the winter blues - fry it up and feel the love!

25 Random Things

Noelle's 25 things (in the first person)

1.I have four crooked teeth, two on the bottom that are fully out and two on the top.
2.I like to grind my teeth together and worry my umma.
3.I really like the fuzzy yellow polka dot blanket. Umma thinks this will be my security blankie.
4.If mom holds me and then passes me off to daddy, I get teary-eyed.
5.I love Amy Winehouse. She's the JAM.
6.My new favorite toy is Pooh Bear from Aunt Michelle.
7.I can play by myself for hours if I have my stacking rings.
8.I can roll over at the speed of lightning, from one end of the room to the other.
9.I have developed catlike ways (see pic). I love to play with yarn and sharpen my little claws on the upholstery.
10.I have eczema.
11.I get a fatty attitude when I'm eating sweet potatoes. Umma is too slow with the spoon, yo!
12.The word I like to say the most is "Ah-Dah".
13.I weighed nearly 23 pounds the last time I went to the doctor. Fat girls rule.
14.My eyes glaze over when watching FSC (Fox Soccer Channel).
15.I believe bath time is the right time for some wicked fun (i.e. fartin' bubbles).
16.If left to my own chewing devices, rubber ducky would no longer have a face.
17.I have begun to make "extreme poo" to the disgusted amazement of both umma and apah.
18.I have concocted an evil plan to get whatever I want from my daddy - look straight into his eyes and say "ah-pah?" and then smile ear to ear. BWAHAHAHAHAHA
19.I like to stand up but crawling gives me the creeps (get it?)
20.I have morning hair 24 hours a day. "No more tangles" my a$$
21.My favorite thing to sing is "woawoawoa" at the top of my little lungs.
22. Once I'm down for the night, a train could pass through the room and I'd still would not wake up.
23.I like cheapie plastic bottles. Bougie bottles can suck it (get it?)
24.I have VERY high-self esteem, much like umma. I'M THE PRETTIEST!
25.My favorite thing to wear is nothing. Easy. Breezy. Beautiful. Fat.
