Post edit: I tried to use Picasa to upload my pictures to my blog. Apparently it didn't work. You should be able to see them now.
No videos this week, just pictures.
I sent Julia to put on her pajamas one night, and came into her room to find this:
Yes, that's a swimsuit. Over her clothes. Most definitely not her pajamas. And she does, in fact, have awesome hair. She usually does. It's a gift.
Clark and Julia made pancakes for dinner on Sunday. I thought it was a sweet moment. And pretty impressive that I actually reached for the camera, no?
It's Birthday Week for Julia, and we've got lots of fun things planned. I was inspired by my friend Celeste (who was inspired by Secrets of a Super Mommy) to have a birthday countdown. Except that I am so not crafty, in any way, and even with 9 months to think about it, I never got around to actually making a board. But I decided that the thought was the important part! Julia picked all the dinners this week (pancakes, beans and rice, chicken nuggets, sandwiches, mac and cheese, meatballs, waffles, and taco soup). Last night we had an All About Julia FHE, where we talked about the day she was born, and told our favorite Julia stories. Later this week, she gets to go on a date with Mom, decorate the house, pose for a photoshoot, and go to the zoo.
For today's activity, we went to the candy store and she got to pick out whatever she wanted. As approached the storefront, I realized that it was Easter, and this trip could really backfire on me. They had enormous chocolate bunnies for sale, and who wouldn't want an enormous chocolate bunny?! Well, Julia didn't. She looked around for a while, and then chose a package of two chocolate coated peep bunnies. $1.25. I kind of felt bad, so I let her pick something else, too. She got a $1 package of gummy worms. Not bad at all! And she was in heaven.
