Morella is teething an eye tooth on her right side. Her little tongue is hanging out…it’s cute. So, you may imagine that she has been a total crank monster, and if you did indeed imagine that you would be correct!

Regardless, I had plans for today. It started off with Tim making french toast (surprise and delicious!) and coffee, followed by a leisurely morning of putzing. Then we got dressed and headed downtown to enjoy the nice weather and do a little State Street shopping. Something must have been going on at the Overture Center because State Street was deluged with parents and babies in strollers. Yes, we looked like a cliche, but who cares? We had a nice time we:

–got coffee from the Fair Trade Coffee Place
–got more deodorant for me (I vowed I would never go another Dr. appt without putting some on!)
–two new hand made soaps (orange and a cinnamon/clove one)
–a wonderful acrylic stamp set that has my imagination firing overtime (splurge)
–valentine’s
–lunch at Chatayra (where the picture is taken)

We installed Morella’s new car seat today and I am pleased to report that she fell asleep in it within moments of heading home. I guess you could also say it was because she was an hour over her nap time. Anyway. IT fits and looks so comfortable. Hurray!

Once we got home I changed her diaper, put comfortable pants on her and slipped her into her crib where she took a 3 hour nap! Woo! I took a long nap on the couch, and when Tim got done riding his bike home from work (we had dropped him off) he took a nap as well. For her dinner she had leftover Korma chicken and I made a homemade spaghetti pizza that was a disaster because the crust didn’t rise at all, and the texture of the ground turkey made me gaggy. :P Tim ate a bunch though so it wasn’t all a total loss.

Morella then proceeded to meltdown every five minutes and we decided to take a walk around the neighborhood, with Tim carrying her and me walking the dog. It was a nice walk, though slippery. I am a little worried about how my legs started to ache near the end of the walk and how tired I was — I’m really out of shape! Now I know why they say to wait a year between kids because I don’t think I’ve fully recovered from Morella and everything hurts so much more — like the the uterus pain, the leg pain, no stamina…sigh.

Last night we finished watching True Blood and it was okay. I guess I would watch more. Libby, are those books you mentioned the books that the series was based on? If so, I have a friend who is reading them who say that it’s sort of trashy — but in a fun way. I don’t know. I think I am a little vampired out for the moment. But I’ll keep it in mind for when I am out of books to read. Thankfully I have Sarah’s recommendation of Archangel next to my bed and am pleased to say that last night dreamed about it. :D

Laura – you got the “Ashley” britax marathon? Mostly yellow with red flowers?

Sarah – thanks for the icon! It’s great — maybe I’ll use it for the website. I really need to update my Bio. Sigh. I just haven’t been into website design for a while. I wish I had some young intrepid student worker who wanted to impress me and redesign my website…instead of me doing it. Also, I think I will leave a suggestion with the library based on my next Baby Book time experience. Though shouldn’t one give it at least three tries before criticizing?

Marnie – Where is the Donuts with Dad? Is that on the west side too?
