This little girl did not want to go to bed the other night. So I let her get up but made her stay in her swaddle, haha. She was having a great time.Went and saw Leap Year last night with Bethany and Kelly... eh. It was fun to go out with the girls, but the movie wasn't as good as I had hoped. Definitely not as good as P.S. I Love You, right mom? :) Plus we were sitting on the very back row and a few seats down from me was a couple who were totally making out! I almost barfed.
The main guy in the movie was named Declan (deck-lin) and I really like that name.

I made rosemary potatoes and pork chops in my crock pot last night, and even though I didn't have any rosemary, it was really tasty!

We're reading the Great Gatsby for book club and I love it! The words are just so pretty.

Im so ready for summer. I finally used my X-mas money and got all summer clothes, and two pairs of super cute wedge shoes that were buy one (for $15) get one free! I couldn't pass that up! But now I have to wait for all this snow to melt to show off my new diggs.

Cupcake Girl

5 things about my 5 month old sweetest baby T:

1. She likes it when I fold her in half and make her toes touch her nose
2. She does crunches and leg lifts at the same time when she wants you to pick her up. I think she may be the only baby Ive ever know to work on her 6 pack
3. She is entertained by me wiggling my fingers in front of her face for quite a while
4. She does a great Chewbacca impression
5. She loves to play with and pull her daddy's beard

We did a photo shoot for my friend Ashley's new clothing and headband website and I finally got to put Tate in her cute bloomers Mimi got her. Im so excited to see how the pics turned out. Ill post some as soon as I get them.

Today we got caught up on the Bachelor on, went to the grocery store, picked up dad's drycleaning, and played with monkey and baby doll. Pretty exciting :)

I hate shopping.

Today Tate and I went to the mall. I've had Christmas money that I am supposed to use on new clothes (because everything I own is ugly) but I can never find anything when I go looking for it. I dont know whats wrong with me, what kind of girl hates shopping? For herself! For clothes! (I also hate talking on the phone, but lets save that for another day)

We walked around and in and out of the mall for 3 hours today. We walked out with nothing.

I need a personal shopper.
Someone who I can just give my money to and say "make me look cute!"

Exciting moment of the day:
I found Becca's twin sister at Icing shopping for headbands.
I literally thought it was her from the side and I was about to call out to her but then remembered Becca lives in Arizona, and if shes visiting up here she always calls me. It was so crazy that I had to call B on the phone and make sure this other B didn't answer.
I was nervous but I asked her for her picture so I could show Becca the madness. She was really nice, her name is Kara. I wish I had gotten a profile shot to show the exact resemblance, but I already felt like a dork asking for her to stand and smile :P

I guess the trip wasn't a complete failure.

Date Night

Last night G and I went out and saw Invictus, which was amazing! Tatum got to stay at Billy and Alli's house, our old neighbors from HG. They adore her, and I think she has a blast with them too. Im pretty sure she gets 100% attention from the moment she gets to there apt, till the moment she leaves.
We were supposed to get froyo after the movie, but Dad was missing his little baby too much :-) So we went and picked her up and got her to bed on time.
She is always so happy when she wakes up in the morning. Today I started hearing her cooing and went into her room. She was just staring up at me and laughing. She had her cute giraffe pj's on. So I undid her swaddle and she was kicking and stretching out. I love our mornings.

Over Christmas break our laptop died. The hard drive "completely fried" (words of the Geek Squad) and we lost all of our pictures! It stinks because Greg is always saying we need to back up our pictures onto disks. At least once a month he says this, but we never do! Why didn't we? I had all the pictures from the last 4 years on there. Bummer.
But... yesterday I logged onto my shutterfly account and I had forgotten that I uploaded some pictures onto the site to make Tatum's first week home book. I had 200 pictures on there from when she was in the hospital and the first few weeks!! I was so excited! Now at least I can order prints of them.

My first book club meeting is on Thursday, and I am very excited. This month we are reading Star Girl and Maniac Magee, both by Jerry Spinelli. I've finished Star Girl and am about 1/2 way done with MM. Luckily they are both pretty quick reads, I think they are junior high level. I wouldn't say I've loved them, but they were interesting enough. SG kind of bugged me because she was to nice. I dont know what this says about me, but people who are 24/7 perky and cheerful and oblivious to anything negative going on around them annoy me. Is that bad?
I consider myself to be a pretty positive person, but come on Stargirl!

We're out to discover!

Tatum's new trick is to lick her lips. It started about two days ago, and she just thinks those lips taste so good she cant stop. I'm going to have to get her some baby chap stick soon.
Also she can now turn in a circle while laying on her back, haven't caught that on camera yet

More Baby Pics (duh)

Hey everybody check out my new shoes! Yeah, me and mom sweet talked my dad into letting me get these awesome kicks. Our friend Casey hooked us up with his sweet discount at Journey's Kids, otherwise I'd probably be bare foot right now.

Im not a very big cuddler but my mom tries to trick me into it when she's feeding me

Or she'll give me my shirt to chew on, that works too.

But sometimes she puts my pants on my head so I look like a fiddler on the roof girl, only with more style (polka dots)
