Nearly 3 WeeksI can't believe Baby A has only been here for 2 and a half weeks... it seems like she's been here forever! S is going to go back to work for a few days a week starting tomorrow, so I'll be facing my first day "all alone" with A (with help from Abby and Cricket!)
In the meantime, we've been making the most of S' time off and we've been trying to get out and go places... those of you who know me will doubtless be SHOCKED that one of our destinations happened to be a certain eatery...
Not only have I been learning to live with MUCH less sleep, I'm also having to learn how to balance all sorts of things. For example, my lap, although much larger than when I was preggers, is still only so big. Consequently, space allocation with a sleeping baby, a snuggly cat, and knitting can be a bit of a challenge...
When she's not trying to balance precariously on what little bit of lap isn't covered by baby-ness, Cricket has been shouldering a heavy burden of housework. For example, yesterday we ventured out to the Torpedo Factory to spend the rest of a very generous gift certificate we had received for our wedding. We scored big-time... 4 beautiful pieces of pottery. Cricket had to single-handedly inspect each and every one to ensure proper quality. She especially liked the little bouquet I stuck in one of the peices...
She isn't allowed on the kitchen counter, so she had to settle for a much more cursory inspection of the new little chicken bowl (that we're currently using to hold salt)...
And she luckily had completed her inspection of the bowl before I filled it with fruit.
But my favorite peice? Definitely this one. It's about the size of a salad plate, and is slightly curved... so it's not quite a bowl, not quite a plate. And it's just beautiful.
