Wanted: Dishwasher

Ok...I get that this neighborhood was built in the fifties.
I get that we live in a "Historic District," and I'm cool with that.
But when you own some apartments in 2010, can you please, please, PLEASE update and put in a dishwasher?!
Washing dishes is the bane of my existence. I loathe it. I'd rather have the fleas of a thousand camels infest my armpits than wash dishes by hand. Which results in this:

And then I spend forever washing them all, which leads to this:

...and this...

....AND this...

Call me lazy, but I'd much rather spend 5 minutes loading those suckers into a dishwasher and spend the other 85 staring at my cute child. There's an hour and a half of my life I'll never get back.
And...before you think it, because I know you were about to...I am well aware of the ghetto-ness that is our kitchen "curtains." Being able to see out a window when it's dark outside makes me practically wet myself with fear so this was our quick fix when we first moved in. 2 months later and we're still rockin' it. I'll get real ones someday...

Like Father, Like Daughter

I walked in from a church meeting a while ago and found this in our bed.
Brings a smile to my face every time I see it.
My goodness...I am a lucky girl

Family Night

Oh how I love My Love and My Lovey.

My Love doesn't have a lot of time off, and he hardly ever has Monday nights off. Well this past Monday, he did. So we lived it up, Holmstrom style. AKA low key dinner and hanging out. But, considering we never eat dinner together, this is heaven to me.

We grilled chicken, made some pasta, and feasted til our bellies were full!

We watched Baby Einstein. (soooo boring by the way! how does that ever hold their attention??)

We played on the floor.

There were lots of kisses

And giggles. Yes! Lovey giggled for the first time on Monday! Music to my ears...

Then we read a goodnight story...

And it was off to bed for My Lovey...

We finished with ice cream and an intense round of Phase Tenage. Which of course I kicked My Love's tooshie in!

I lalalove my little family

Tender Moments

Last night, Ruby started to cry in her crib.
I went in to put her pacifier back in and after I did I just softly rubbed her cheek a few times. She reached up with her tiny little hands and just held my hand to her cheek.
I melted.
I love being her mother.
