m.i.a.

This afternoon the girls & I headed up to Park City to have "unch wit Dada!" per Cassidy's request. After lunch we stopped by his office to visit & so I could feed Kalea in relative privacy (I say relative, as his office door/outside wall is completely glass & the opposite wall has huge windows that look out into the parking lot where all his co-workers were returning from lunch. Good thing I'm not a stickler for privacy these days.) In any case, while I was busy shielding my, ummm, baby feeders, from the world & taking care of Kalea, Michael was amusing Cassidy while simultaneously getting some work done - what a multitasker! In any case, the point of the story is that he distracted Cassidy by pulling up the blog & showing the ego-centric toddler pictures of herself.  And he said, "Wow! You haven't posted in a whole week!"  Yes people, I'm slacking.

We're gearing up for our Annual Meeting at our agency (next Thursday & Friday, so expect more slacker blogging!) & I've been doing a little more work than normal during the three days that I'm officially "off" work. But, I am excited because I think it'll end up being a great event that celebrates the agency's 25th anniversary.  You should come!  

Other than that excuse, we've simply been enjoying the fantastic weather. It was sunny & in the 70s for the last week so we've been outside a lot recently. We also took Cassidy to the Thomas the Train event at Toy R Us this past Saturday. She had a good time playing trains, coloring & picking random toys off the shelves to "take with me, Momma?"  You bet we left with more than the freebies! 


Kalea continued the sleeping through the night trend for the past two weeks. I feel like I may be starting to come out of the 9 months of sleep deprivation fog (yes, I realize she's only 7 months old, but sleep the last two months of pregnancy wasn't particularly fantastic either!). She's doing a great job of sitting up on her own & last week, with a little prodding & assistance by Aunt Jenny, got up on all fours for a few seconds. She's eating like a champ too - still nursing, but added a jar of baby food for lunch + a jar & a half or two jars for dinner. She is such a pleasant baby - all smiles, giggles & laughter (unless she's hungry & then we hear it!) - and growing bigger every day. A new favorite activity is bath-time...enjoy the video!


Lastly, we've gotten another award! Apparently our friend, the Drama Mama, at The Scoop on Poop, doesn't mind that I'm a slacker. This morning I noticed a wonderful surprise...
Thanks so much, Drama Mama! We're so excited to be recognized & to pass it on! Please go check out our nominations:
And, really lastly, don't forget that tomorrow is Earth Day 2010. What are your plans to celebrate Mother Earth?

You've got 2 little girls, very cute ones I might add, and you totally rock those sunglasses. You are allowed to be a slacker. I'm glad you enjoyed your award. Looking forward to meeting the blogs you listed.

Those kids are too cute! Don't you love when days go by without blogging and your excuse is simply that life was going really, really good? Best excuse ever. :)
