Baby Girl started teething last week. She is drooling like crazy over everything we own. Good news is, she likes when I wipe her mouth; she thinks it’s hilarious. Bad news is, she is getting older! I guess it had to happen sometime.
Ridiculous trip to the grocery store earlier this week. I had a doctor’s appointment first, and then Ellen got hungry. So, before we went to the store, I decided to stop by Mike’s office to feed and change her. It is right across the street from the doctor after all. When I get there, I learn they now have a policy that family members cannot visit, so I got to feed Ellen sitting in the backseat of my Buick. Fine. Whatever. Then, off to the grocery store where I always lose track of time. It is weirdly fun for me. Ellen starts to get hungry again so I rush through the checkout so I can get home to feed her. No rushing through check out. No going home. Instead, I waited in line for 20 minutes while the guy behind me talked about how much Michigan (the state) sucks, and then went to go to my car only to find it was pouring. Now I am wet and I have a crying baby. I ditch the groceries and just jump in the car with my soaking wet baby and proceed to feed her. As I am doing this, a man tried to steal my groceries. I gave him the stink eye and he walked away. As I am feeding Ellen, I realize I am the worst. mom. ever. I forgot to change her at Mike’s office/my car. She has literally peed through her reusable mega diaper and her pants onto my pants. Poor girl was sitting in pee all.day. Kill me now. But, she got her revenge when she was done eating. Ya’ll know she puked all over my favorite blazer. Luckily, my husband called and said he was coming home from work early. My knight in shining armor met us in the parking lot, loaded the groceries in the rain and saved the day. Grocery shopping fail. Husband win.
I am completely in love with this video. You will be too.
This past week, I took a photography class. It was the best instruction I have ever received in taking photos. I plan on taking the more advanced classes in weeks to come. Hopefully this will mean better photography for the blog. If you have any good photo tips, please let me know in the comment section!
Mike and I had our first night out without Ellen. My parents invited us to a Tigers playoff game. I did a really good job, too. I only cried a squirt, and I only talked about her from the first inning through the eighth. I think Mike about had it when I asked him how many times he thought Ellen had tooted while we were gone. I’ll get better, I promise. Keeping our marriage strong is really important to me. That’s why…
I am joining a moms’ group at church. I believe we are meeting just moms at first, but then we are deciding on what times would work best for our husbands. The point of the group is not just to meet as moms for a break, but also to grow spiritually as mothers as well as wives (with our husbands there!). I am very excited about this, and I only wish it would have happened sooner!
