a few fun things that have been going on around these parts–
we took eleanor to see the black keys perform last friday evening. as expected, she fell asleep by the second song since it was her bedtime (we figured she would since she did the same thing when we took her to see beirut perform live past her bedtime last fall.) even though she fell asleep towards the beginning of the show, she danced in my lap until her eye lids were too heavy to stay open. the black keys are currently her favorite. we know this because whenever we play their music she insists on stopping whatever she’s doing to stand up and dance with her hands in the air. she loves her music and dancing, that one.
josh and i saw cedar lake contemporary ballet perform. if they’re ever passing through your area, go see them! one of our favorite dance companies and the program they are touring is so good!
other exciting news includes that our 1 month of no desserts, candy and soda is over! OVA! hip hip hooray! i celebrated by eating almost an entire box of thin mint girl scout cookies. and yes, all. by. myself. ;) josh celebrated by having a coke.
some not so fun things that have been going on around these parts–
eleanor has a cold. how do you get a cold in 80 degree weather?
it’s been a very painful week, as far as pregnancy goes. plus, my tummy currently measures as big as it was in my 42nd week of pregnancy with eleanor (that late little lady!) so as you can imagine, i can’t wait to see what this belly is going to look like come june! woah. so if you see me in person in the next 10 -12 weeks, please don’t say “you look like you’re going to explode/pop… you’re HUGE… you got triplets in there? or dang, girl, you’re so pregnant!” because i know, i know… and i don’t need the reminder.
it’s been 70 – 80 degrees outside! you’d think this would be on the other list of fun things going on around here. and don’t get me wrong, we really are enjoying this sunshine and extra hour of light in the evenings, but did we skip over spring? i’ll be so sad if we did… i’m not ready for hot august weather just yet. hey spring, please come back!
