Today (Tuesday) my husband gave me an early Christmas present: He took Sydney ALL DAY. Apparently THEY had some shopping to do (for me) together! Whee! I had the house all to myself for the first time since we brought baby home. At first I was a little bewildered and had a "I miss my baaaaby, waaaah!" moment and then I went off like a dervish making lists and organizing my thoughts before the family arrives in force Thursday (we hope … this snow crapola is freaking me out!). I also showered and got dressed in a matter of 20 minutes, which is super fast considering that the process takes nearly an hour if it's just me and the baby and she's awake. I got going on my baking finally, got most of the Christmas cards mailed, picked up my car from the shop, finished up grocery shopping for the big meal … AMAZING. I haven't gotten that much done in one day in a long time! I was on such a roll that when Sydney went to bed I finished making cookies! WOOT! Too bad I really should have gone to bed because we were up all night last night with the girl. Note to self: Do not allow anyone to nap after 6 p.m. EVER.
While I pumped a to-go bottle for the big daddy-daughter outing, John was in charge of getting Syd dressed. And yes, we got it on tape:
It's always exciting to see what he'll come up with when I ask him to dress the girl! I have to remind myself that (most) men didn't play with dolls and therefore have uh, different, ideas about how to dress a tiny person. He really didn't do too bad a job … it DOES match as he points out but, polka dots and stripes? Hee.
