woo hoo! go me! blogging from seattle. although, I have no photos to post, so that will have to wait.
but we are having a good time, jack is doing really well - except that he's on a pooping spree & we purchased a generic brand of diapers when we got here so we have had a few leaks. no worries - I got some huggies yesterday. phew!
heading to do a little shopping today - our last day here.
we did some sightseeing stuff monday, yesterday we took the ferry to bainbridge island, so today is shopping! and I'm not usually much of a shopper, but there are some nice stores around here (and they're all close) that I don't normally get to go to - i.e. lululemon!! wonder if I should mosey into gucci... ;)
I'm a little bummed - we were going to head to a town called woodinville to tour the red hook brewery & two wineries. we found out last night that the cab ride would be atrocious & if we rented a town car, it would cost $55-60 ONE WAY. so we decided to nix that trip. :( guess we'll save the brewery & winery tours for a different trip.
sooo, yeah. I finally have time to blog. and I get to report what I woke up to this morning. as most of my blogging friends are already moms, you've probably been through this before, but it was a first for ben & I.
poop! poop everywhere!
I thought I was being spoiled when it was 7:30 and jack still wasn't up yet. then we hear him so both ben & I go in - poop everywhere. poop coming out of his diapers & jammie pants. poop smushed into the sheets. poop wiped on the crib padding. poop wiped all over the rail. I picked him up and noticed it was all over his hands. for some stupid reason I kissed his cheek & realized I had just kissed poop. it was all over one cheek, one ear & in his hair.
so needless to say, we went straight to the bathtub this morning. and NOW I can say everyone & everything is cleaned up and poop free. but that sure was fun.
I'm just thankful ben didn't encounter that yesterday morning when I was already at work. I'm also thankful he can be a little late to work to stay and help me.
I'm really not that grossed out- I deal with poopy animals all the time. it's just that they're not pooping on pottery barn kids crib sheets/padding!!
grandma lulu (ben's grandma) passed away monday. she was such a wonderful woman and such a great example for her family. she put up such a brave fight in the last two weeks of her life. it was so hard to say goodbye, but we know she's in a better place.
but we'll still miss her immensely.
I thought I'd post a couple photos of her.
not sure I know another couple this in love. they had been together since they were 13.
and now I'm up at 3:45 am and have been since I heard two bowls in the kitchen come crashing down at 1:30. ben was only slightly annoyed that I made him come walk through the house with me, you know - to make sure there were no burglars or anything.
and now I can't get back to sleep. I have had a sore throat since sunday and had a fever when I got home from work yesterday (tuesday).
home from the lake yesterday and jack had a mild fever. today it is slightly more than mild. :( I hate having a sick baby. fevers are my least favorite. I hope he gets to feeling better soon, if not we'll be heading to the doctor.
