I know there is "Black Friday" but is Saturday "black" too these days? It seems like a lot of stores have "doorbusters" on Saturday too. Either way, I have to head to Target for some essentials, most importantly: real Nyquil. The off brand stuff has not been working for me at all. Two restless nights proves it. We are all sick in this house and I could use a night of sound sleep. That would be step one towards getting better! So, real Nyquil it is.
Yesterday I worked another 10-8 at work and man, it was busy! We were understaffed so it was ridiculous. Jason and Amelia spent another day together, in the kitchen it seems:
He cleaned up her Sesame Street kitchen we found at a yard sale this summer:
It turns out there are three colored pots that go with it! Jason is keeping an eye out on eBay for them. It talks and Cookie Monster tells you he wants to "cook soup in blue pot" etc. Even if we don't find the pots, she'll have fun with this I think.
(What do you think of Jason's photography skills? He has been trying hard to take better pictures and I think he's getting better! Usually we only post my pictures on here and Facebook. He put my Canon SLR on a tripod, so he could focus on getting Amelia to look AND smile, and it worked for him!)
This morning Amelia was up at 6! I changed her, fed her and let her cry in her crib because it was just too early! She fell back asleep and woke up at her usual 8 :) It was hard to be upset about having to get up when I walked in to see this:
She is getting so big!
With that getting bigger comes difficulty though...she doesn't understand that this is not ok:
She gets so mad at us when we flip her back over!
I have high hopes today! I want to get a ton of stuff done, as usual. I have a short presentation in my graduate seminar, about my thesis, to give on Monday and I really need to be able to spend tomorrow getting ready for that. That means, getting everything else done today before work! Hopefully this sick little girl decides to be happy today:
