Oh where to begin?
I’ve had so many things that I’ve thought about writing about in the past few weeks but geez, it’s not easy to find time. I have time during the day, but not so many minutes consecutively, the past week anyway. And I’ve been cleaning and doing extra vacation laundry along with the usual baby routine.
The usual baby routine is a bit misleading to say because well, if something happens for 3 days in a row, it seems like a new routine, but the truth is, things change really fast regarding what she doing, how she reacts, what she is interested in. Some things stay the same – the usual routine does involve D and I feeding, entertaining, playing, and giggling with her, and alternately, trying to do none of the above when she wakes us up at 2:30 a.m.
We had a great Christmas at home. It was low key and fun. Then we went and had a great time with D’s parents in France. We were in the 15ème arrondissement of Paris, near Gare Montparnasse. It’s mostly residential there, and we mostly stayed in and visited, and ate, and rested. We searched around until we found a nice grocery and a good place to buy bread (baguettes!!). The apartment was awesome – two bedrooms, two baths.. clean, big kitchen.. The only thing I can think of to add would be a bigger tv and a hot tub.
It’s been cold around here, and snowing, and not warming up at all. Which I’m fairly sure is abnormal for this part of Germany. I’m fairly sure it’s abnormal because I didn’t see anything like this in the last two years (not much reference I know), but also because they really aren’t cleaning the streets here, or the sidewalks. I had to push the stroller through 3 inches of smooshy, dirty snow most of the way to baby A’s doctor’s appointment this afternoon. Yech! And I forgot my gloves (brilliant!).
Our little sack of potatoes was exactly 7.00 kg today (or 15.4 lbs) and turned 4 months old yesterday – go Baby A! She also woke up at 3 a.m. last night when I coughed and didn’t go back to sleep for the next 2 hours. Yay-ehh..
I’m throwing this theme-less post up because it’s late and I’m tired. Pictures next time! Happy 2010!
