La Sophia

Let me introduce you to Sophia:

It was love at first sight....there is no denying it my child has a thing for her new giraffe, Sophia. I don't know if it is the spots or squeak but we now always have Sophia wherever we go. Mainly Sophia stays in Rachel's mouth however she occasionally dances a number or two.

I must thank my friend, Ashley for this wonderful gift that I child ADORES!!!!!!!
I just ask you please do not ask Rachel whether she loves Sophia more than her parents because I do not think I could handle the answer.

Happy Half Birthday Rachel!!!

My baby is 6 months old. WOW! I cannot believe time is going by so fast! I've seen a lot of other people do this so I thought I would as well. Here are 6 interesting facts about Rachel since she is 6 months old.

1. Rachel is swaddled every night before bed. She has been sleeping through the night since about 7 weeks and we attribute this to swaddling. She is rapidly growing out of her blanket that we swaddle in and I have NO idea what I'm going to be do when that happens.

2. Rachel LOVES to eat! She will eat anything we give her especially at supper time! You cannot feed her fast enough and trust me she will let you know if you're not feeding her fast enough.

3. She loves a bath. She recently graduated from the baby tub to her duck tub. She enjoys splashing around in her tub and will do so for as long as you let her.

4. Blowing raspberries is her specialty these days.

5. Rachel loves animals. Especially big dogs.....please note that she is only around dogs that we know. She enjoys grabbing our cat, Moses, and we are currently working on "sweet pats" instead of grabbing and pulling kitty's hair.

6. She will grab at any necklace. This could be very bad for us down the road......

I LOVE YOU RACHEL!!!!! You have blessed me more you than you could ever know!

Office Etiquette

At work I must admit I'm very luckily to have my own office. I do realize that some people work in cubicles and honestly I do not think I could survive working in a cubicle. Our office building mainly consists of a long hall with offices of either side of the hallway. Mine is located at the end of such hall and conveniently located across from the break room which is right next door to the two bathrooms on our floor. Maybe a cubicle wouldn't be so bad after all.

Being across from the break room does have its moments. All the advantages seem to escape me at the present time, though. I am thinking about making list of appropriate things that can be microwaved and taping it to the door. The top two would be fish (given) and popcorn. The funny thing about popcorn is that it is a lose/lose situation. First off if you are one of the only two people in the office that can pop popcorn appropriately it smells heavenly. There's nothing worse than smelling something that you cannot have. It messes with my emotions and makes my tummy rumble! On the flip side to that (which is most likely the case) you burn the popcorn thus making my office smell for the rest of the day like burned popcorn. More likely than not the perpetrator in this crime either works on a different floor and far away from the smell it does not effect them.

The moral of this story.......Just don't pop popcorn at work and everyone will be happy.

I will not take on the issues I have with the bathroom at this time. Thank you for listening!
