So we've decided if we ever have another bambino, he or she MUST arrive in the springtime...or at least the fall. This winter crap is for the birds! (Well, not really. Even they skip town in the winter.) I would love to take Lilly for walks in her stroller, sit outside with our neighbors, go hiking with her and the dog... anything but sit around cooped up in the house all day.

However, we did get out yesterday (even Midas came along for the ride) for my appt. and then drove around for a little while, since Lilly loves the car so much. She did well at the doctor's office, but I had to feed her, take her out of her seat, bounce her around the exam room while we waited forrreeevver for Dr. S. Only, to find out that my BP is back up, and therefore so is my dosage. One of these days I'll get back to normal.

I am super excited for the arrival of my etsy Earthsling though! It shipped from Australia on Monday, so maybe I'll get it early next week? It's apple green and looks like so much fun. I debated whether to go through with getting a sling because I was worried that Lilly would end up napping in it too much and would never nap in her bed if she got used to the snuggliness of always sleeping on me. But now that she's becoming a CRIB SLEEPER (!!), I don't think I have to worry about that. It'll be really helpful to have my hands free during the day and when I go back to work, I'll be able to keep her with me when things are quiet, like around 4:30. Otherwise she will always be the last baby in the nursery and I was the last kid picked up from soccer practice enough times to know that no one wants to be last! Including the teachers!

I also ordered something really neat for Lilly's monthly photos, so her 1 month pic will be delayed a few more days until it arrives. But I will tell you that a) it's gonna be sickeningly cute and b) it's gonna be sickeningly cute!

Here are a couple pictures until then...

Baby's first mullet. Business in the front, party in the back.

Absolutely worth the wait:) (Lisa, if you have a girl, this one is all yours!)

Play time makes me sleepy!

I don't know, do you think she likes her crib?!

I LOVE the mullett comment! Just about peed my pants when I read "party in the back"...I didn't think I led a sheltered life, but apparently so as I never heard that before!

She is just too precious! I love her "worth the wait" onesie too!

Glad to hear you are both doing well! Keep up the good work Mama!

My little (ok, he's 3 - not so little anymore) guy was a winter baby too and I longed for some walks in his stroller just to get out of the house. We used to cruise the got me out of the house (and some exercise to boot) and he enjoyed the stroll and "watching" all the other people.

I want the apple green earthsling too! I'm anxious to know how you like it.
She is one cute kid!
