i'm so glad when daddy comes home...

Ben got home before Natalie's bedtime the other day and had the chance to help her play with a new toy I got her.  

rock a bye-baby

For a solid two weeks, everytime I picked up Natalie she would lay her head on my shoulder.  In that time I rocked her to sleep mulitple times.  Her Omie even rocked her to sleep once.  It was so sweet and I loved it.  Now its been a solid 3 days and not once has she laid her head down.  She's back to crying herself to sleep for every nap and bedtime.  So sad....

musical monday

I'm gonna give some love to the men this week.  Since I get most of my new interests from Pandora, its not usually new or terribly undiscovered, but at least I know I won't hear most of the music if I turn on the radio.  Presenting...Amos Lee

just cute

My friend Emily and I went to a St.Patrick's day parade in Alexandria this last weekend.  The weather was great, and we had a fun time.  Cute pictures.

bad mother

Today has been the hardest day in Natty's short 11 months.  She would not let me put her down and was basically just crying every minute.  To add to that, our cable wasn't working.  I'm not sure why, but I didn't really care that much, and didn't try to fix it until now...7 pm.  Well, I fixed it (stay tuned for the new to launch tech support company Edgell Services) and turned on Dora.   Natalie IMMEDIATELY started beaming and has not come anywhere near me.  
Bad sign for how she spends much of her days....but thank goodness!

In typical Virginia fashion, we don't get our big snow fall until it came last night.  I have no real winter clothes for Natty, but I did manage to take some pictures of her in her seat.  

musical monday

My sister Cat (I would link to you, but you have no blog.  booo) told me to check out this band and I'm now a big fan.  It fits right in with my, slightly depressing while being lovingly harmonic, taste.  I bring to you, The Weepies

ok, and how cute is this video?
