Lately No. 7

It’s felt a little slow around here. Probably because I had a cold, which brought everything other than the essentials to a grinding halt. Thankfully I am now mostly over it and feeling much better.

I’ve been working a few hours a week from home for the last month or so, and am happily awaiting my first paycheque this week. As a consultant I know that being paid net 30 days is standard…but ouch! Waiting for that very first cheque can be difficult. It’s been a little over two months since my maternity leave ended, and my bank account is looking forward to a deposit.

Boo Boo, of course, continues to be the sweetest and cutest thing ever. He amazes me everyday….though admittedly my amazement isn’t always positive (he’s still getting far too much enjoyment from hitting his head against, well, everything…).

Boo looking through Dada's legs

My little man likes to find the most direct route to what he wants…in this case, Daddy’s attention!

Boo Boo's top tooth

Boo Boo has been smiling a lot lately…giving us a much better look at his three teeth. I’m in love with that lone top tooth.

Mama's uniform

Working from home has its perks…these are pretty much my work clothes.

Boo Boo practices with his spoon

Boo Boo is still totally uninterested in feeding himself. But, he is making progress figuring out how spoons work.

Andrea's odometer

So yeah…while we’ve been busy marking all of Boo Boo’s milestones, Erica (…my car…don’t you name your car? My gal goes by the name Erica Echo) hit her own! She also, quite evidently, needs to be dusted.

Boo's hair

I’ve stopped combing Boo’s hair after his bath…because if I leave it be, I’ve noticed that the top layer is starting to curl as it dries. And I love it.

Just hanging around with Daddy! I don’t know who’s having more fun in this picture – they’re both so cute :)

Rocky Road Cupcake

We had my in-laws over for my MIL’s birthday this past weekend. The husband went overboard for dessert – a (delicious) key lime pie AND cupcakes (all purchased from here, and oh so good).

Family shot

While the in-laws were over we managed to get another family shot…we need to make an effort to get more of these. In better lighting, too!

I believe we’re having the in-laws back for dinner next weekend, this time for their anniversary. It’s a big one!!

In the meantime, I’ve got to get started on my Christmas shopping. I think this is the first year in which I have absolutely no idea what to get anyone….and a list about as long as my arm of stuff I’d like. Terrible, isn’t it? How are you progressing with your holiday shopping? Have you started? Finished? Want to do mine?
