#1: My sister-in-law accidentally locked my keys in the trunk and I didn't want her to feel bad so I went into problem-solving mode and made this grand plan to go through the backseat into the trunk, using a tennis racket to reach the keys and pull them to safety. Smart, right? WRONG - if I had access to the backseat, that meant that the car was unlocked and I could have just pressed the trunk release. Duh. I didn't even think of this obvious solution until I was telling Austin (quite proudly) of how I saved the day and he was like "...so the car was unlocked?"
#2: I thought I'd take advantage of Natalie's nap to paint my nails in peace and quiet, but I needed to cut them first so I tossed the two bottles of polish (coral and top-coat) onto the couch so I could go cut my nails into the trash can. My back was already turned when the bottles hit the couch...and each other, breaking the clear polish bottle into pieces. Polish started seeping into the cushion (luckily not very much, and very luckily it was clear) and I spent the next couple minutes trying to use a wet wipe to gather all of the miniscule shards. Oops. (When it was finally cleaned up and I started painting my nails - minus top-coat - Natalie started crying right as I finished the first coat on one hand, so now I have a coral left hand and a plain right. Sigh.)
#3: Forgot to get my cap and gown for graduation. Beep.
In other news, we are just LOVING the stage Natalie is in. It's been so fun to see her go from newborn to little human, if that makes sense...she makes noise with us, smiles all the time, giggles to herself, loves eating and drinking, has fun playing with her toys on the floor, and is just a JOY to be around. She always wakes up from naps with a huge smile waiting for us to come fetch her from the crib, and she gets such a kick out of other small children.
She still loves using her first finger to explore new textures and objects, especially vents (as you can see) and carpet.
|this is how she falls asleep, with Kitty right by her face : )|
|just thought I'd mention that it's SNOWING in mid-April...blegh|
