This picture pretty much sums up our weekend, so far. Today was rough. Poor baby hasn't been feeling too well the past few days, and even had her first official fever. Praise God that it is now back down to normal. She's asleep in her crib, which is such a blessing because the last few nights (in our bed) were pretty sleepless, for her and for us.
Pacifiers are definitely a life saver at times, aren't they? It's so nice to be able to "pacify" her by giving her one when out in public, before a nap, and at bedtime. I also appreciate the fact that while she's sucking on one, she's not putting everything imagineable in her mouth (like usual). However, I am getting a little concerned that she's really liking them now. She will find them around the house and stick them in her mouth and if it were up to here, I think she would be sucking on one all day (and all night). The word "addicted" comes to mind. I'm a little afraid of what the future might hold when we decide to take them away. Any thoughts or suggestions on this topic?
We are still liking our Magic Bullet! I didn't think I would use it for much besides baby food, but it is so much easier to use than a blender. I think I use it almost every day, for something or other! We make smoothies for breakfast. I may be a little behind on this discovery, but Super Target has great frozen fruit (at very low prices). I think this bag of frozen mangoes was only $1.77.
Here's a little picture of Callie all bundled up. We try hard to keep our little Minnesota baby warm! I found this BundleMe on Craigslist last year (unused) for $15, and we're still using it this year! I think we are definitely getting our money's worth.
Yesterday was supposed to be our "closing day." We were all packed up and ready to go. Unfortunately, our buyer needs some more time, so we are now on "pause" and are still in our current house. We're not sure now what day we will be closing exactly, but it should be sometime before the end of October. Is this the Lord trying to teach me patience? Because I don't have time for it. :)
I've been cleaning out our freezer lately. It's pretty much empty except for a few pieces of frozen meat and some frozen breastmilk (sounds appetizing, I know). And this. Look what I found in the back of the freezer. Does anyone recognize it, perhaps?
Good guess. Our wedding "cakes," petit fours. Should we still eat them, on our anniversary in January 2010? Do you think they would still be good?
