A moment for myself while I eat breakfast, enjoy a cup of coffee, and avoid my daily "to-do" list. Gathering my thoughts...

Knitting - I'm so close to finishing Lorelai's baby blanket! I'm on the seed stitch border right now, just a few more rows. It's made with Blue Sky Organic Cotton in a great green color, I'm thinking about putting some hearts or a small "L" on it using duplicate stitch in pink. I don't mind the idea of hand washing (or gentle cycle washing) it, I just hope it holds up to baby drool and spit up. I started the front of her "Amelie" dress, the back is finished. I am thinking about not doing flowers all over it, instead maybe just a heart - I saw one on ravelry that was really cute. It looks so long! Which brings us to...

Lorelai - She had a doctor's appointment yesterday for her one month check up - she's 23.25 inches long now (off the chart!) and weighs 10pounds, 7 ounces! She's got quite the case of baby acne right now - while she's still adorable, photos are a little tricky, hopefully it will clear up sooner rather than later. Sometimes I wonder, what are people thinking when they talk about babies. Especially people who have had babies of their own! L was a little fussy the other afternoon (hunger was the most likely cause) but not overly so - and someone said to me, "Could she be teething?" - Um, she's just A MONTH OLD!! - according to this, the earliest is 3 months. Oy. And I've also been told to "Lighten Up". Grrr. I take my kid seriously and while I may laugh at the faces she makes while crying, I am deeply invested in what's going on with her. After spending all day with her and getting up in the night with her, I don't automatically think to joke when I question something she does.

101 things #46 - I placed an order with Peapod (part of Stop & Shop) - it arrived on time, every thing was there and I feel I got a good deal. I have been trying to avoid using plastic bags while shopping (I usually bring my own canvas bags) - so that's a down side - everything comes in plastic! Ugh. Maybe I'll write them a letter - I would rather pay an extra fee to have my stuff delivered in reuasable bags (or a big box or something).

Movies - Saw Waitress the other day - really cute, very sweet movie. Two thumbs up! I think Keri Russell is becoming one of my new favorite actresses.

Oh here is my belated congratulations on the birth of your sweet baby! My how time has flown by :)
She is really adorable and look at all that hair!
Jackson looks like he is a great babysitter, very protective.
What a good dog.

Peapod saved my life after the birth of my third child. If only I had had it with the first two. My last two were born in December and January, and it was worth every penny not to have to drag three and then four children through Stop and Shop.
Lorelai is growing so fast! What a beautiful girl!!!!!!!!

Sometimes a little Dove soap helps with the baby acne. The plain white stuff. It's gentle but has just enough soap to be a little drying but not too drying. Or you might just have to wait it out! These mysterious little babies are all so different, there's just no way of knowing what will work and what won't for your own kid unless you try it. Anyway, that baby girl is so stinkin' cute that some spots won't make any difference!

I watched Waitress with mom while I was home, it really is great. Gotta get that one for Jenny, she loves keri russell.

Also I totally agree with the peapod thing. THey should totally use boxes. I have gotten better about using fewer bags, but I also use mine for litter box cleaning, so that is a good thing.
