On the Move

Here I am, able to post because I have entertained my daughter by wearing a pair of loud, bright floral pajama pants. She is staring, mesmerised, and petting my knee like she wants to pick the flowers. I will have to remember this trick for future use.

Miss Gabbie and I are the kind of people who like to constantly be on the go. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind a good rainy day spent on the couch reading a good book or watching movies, but that doesn't really happen for me any more. So, we go, go, go.

Today we're headed out to lunch with a friend, our last of two quiet days before we really start going. Thursday we have a million errands to run, including going to meet the teachers at day care. Later this week we're headed to Columbus, OH to see my family including my grandmother who is beyond excited to meet her first great grandchild.

We come back on Sunday, and then Gabbie and I are headed off by ourselves, leaving Aaron by himself (he's looking forward to the sleep), to go to my hometown to visit my best friend. She's on her way through town with her husband (and, a recent development, baby in-utero) on their way out to move to California. Luckily for me, she's moving one town over from my brother, so in the future (like when I throw her a baby shower this winter) I can visit both of them with just one plane trip.

Lucky for us, Gabbie is still in the stage where she mainly sleeps in the car, and neither trip is very far, so hopefully (knock wood) both will be easy trips. Also, she's easily distracted from fussing by either her favorite rattle (Mr. Elephant) or a boob. Those two things along with my pants, make me an excellent baby entertainer apparently. Or not - the pants seem to be losing their power. And, I'm off to rock a certain somebody to sleep.

A baby who loves bright pajama pants? Sounds like my kind of gal!

You're lucky she sleeps in the car...Andrew's good for about ten minutes, until he realizes there's no one paying attention to him at the moment. He is, however, perfectly content here on my lap right now, staring at my fingers on the keyboard as I type.

Sounds like you guys have an exciting week planned. Have fun (but be prepared for the heat down here; I dont know what it's like up there, but it's WAY hot down here)!

Yay! Isn't it awesome how you start to get things down when there's a wee one involved? Our power of adaptation is great. :) Sounds like you are having a lot of fun.
