-Yesterday the weather was awesome. It was so nice we even had the windows down in the car. While we were on our way home from running some errands we were stopped at a red light and Miss Elise decides it would be a great idea to drop her sippy cup out the window!!! I only notice this by looking in my side mirrors after she says, "uh oh". In my mirror I also see a policeman get out of his car to get it! I turn around on the next street and he drives up to find me and we exchange the cup in the middle of the street with both our windows down. I said "Sorry, thanks!" and felt like an idiot. He didn't say anything! Felt like a pretty awesome mom then! Guess no more windows down for us!
-This week Elise has been calling me honey. It's pretty cute/funny. I'm not entirely sure where she got this from. Zack and I do kinda call each other honey but it's been a long time that we used the whole word. Usually we just refer to each other as "hon". Either way it's adorable. Even as we were at the store and she was in the kids play area while I shopped I hear a "honey!" from all the way across the store. Not mom, honey. So funny, I love that girl.
-At dinner last night Zack was talking with Elise and starting singing one of our little made up rhymes to her. In this rhyme we repeat the phrase "baby 'lise" over and over. She stops us all on her own and says "no no, I'm a big girl!". It was heartbreaking and adorable all at the same time. Soon enough she will be our big girl and not the baby.
-As of yesterday I'd say the baby's room/nursery is 100% finished. At least on my end. My mom is still working on the quilt and will help us make curtains and a new ottoman cover for the rocking chair. But all things in MY control are ready to go. I finished putting the swing together yesterday and I even have my hospital bag packed. Is there anything you swear by having in your hospital bag? I have what I think will be good, but time will tell. The only things it is missing are things I still use daily like my kindle and phone charger, etc.
-Yesterday I woke up sick :( Boo. I've been really lucky to have not been sick this whole pregnancy until now! I have a very stuffy or runny (it takes turns) nose and a sore throat. It's the pits. Especially since I'm pregnant because that means I can't really take much for it. Anything you'd recommend?
-An exciting thing from this week is that we got an ipad! All the 3rd years at the medical school get either an itouch, ipad2 or ipad4 (which they pay a little more for). We decided to go with the best and get the ipad4. It's been pretty fun to play with! I was really excited to finally get Instagram! I haven't used it myself but I have been able to see what all my friends post on there! Instagram wouldn't let me sign up from just a laptop and my phone isn't "smart enough" for the app, so I've been banned since now! If you'd like to "follow me" my username is ems.pugh27 and one day I might get around to putting up a picture myself!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
PS- I'm thinking of making this tent to go in Elise's room as a little reading nook with some floor pillows. What do you think? Too hard? Too much? We'll see if I get around to it...
