Quick Takes Volume 18
I'm learning that blogging via iPad is not frustration free. But I'm not going to complain since it allows Katie to nap on my lap as I write this.
It's been two weeks since a desperate Bryan offered me an iPad if I would just give birth before the weekend was over. I thought the offer was a joke. Obviously I didn't realize how serious he was about ending the anxious wait for Katie's arrival.
I apparently am one of those mothers who are oblivious to her baby's cries in the middle of the night. The whimpering ones, not the I'm hungry ones. So while I'm slumbering for a four hour stretch Bryan is waking every 20 minutes or so to Katie's little sounds. He claims she's wide awake in the middle of the night. I think he's just wrapped around her little finger.
They're calling for really cold weather this weekend. I'm quite happy that I can use Katie as an excuse to stay home while the girls and Bryan head to the soccer fields.
Madeline managed to get in a fight with a chair at religious ed last night and lost. Poor kid has a bruise the size and shape of the bottom of a chair leg on her cheek.
It took me two trips to Target, but I finally remembered to buy the cereal we ran out of yesterday.
Halloween costumes are finally picked out. This year I will have a baby, a glittery pink princess and a skeleton. I let you try to guess which each child will be dressing up as. I'll give you a hint, Katie won't be dressing as a baby.
