Fish likes to pretend to talk on the phone. Her pretend conversations always go, "Hello? Okay! What? Really? Bye!" which makes me wonder if my conversations all sound that way to her.

She also started saying, "Bless you!" whenever she sneezes. So she kind of gets it.

I took her down to Columbus today when I went to get my dress started at Grandma's. She had fun running around and I was glad I got to spend some time with her. I've been feeling like I haven't had enough time with her since I've been back at school. I'm glad there's only a few weeks left of it. Then I just have my online class for summer semester.

Mother's Day

Mother's Day was pretty laid back. We got up and went to church (where I got a prize for being the youngest mom there, which certainly surprised me) and then came home and hung out for a bit. After that I made Joe take my annual Mother's Day pictures:

Me & Mony 2010

There were quite a few outtakes, but the hug outtake was by far the cutest.

Then we stopped at Handel's to get ice cream. We got Ramona her own cone for the first time. They had little tiny baby cones- it was so cute! Ramona ate some and made a mess with the rest. (Also, my boobs were out of control all day with insane cleavage. I blame this new bra and apologize for the ridiculousness.)
After that we stopped up at Joe's parents house to wish his mom a happy Mother's Day and hung out for a bit.
Now Joe is sleeping and Mony and I are playing. Pretty much what I expected and wanted for the day, so it was a Happy Mother's Day for me!

Good Week

It was a pretty good week. Work seemed to drag on the whole time, but outside of work I got to hang out with my friend Nina a couple times since school is out, and that was very nice. Joe and Tauno painted the living room ceiling for me as a Mother's Day present, so I can finally finish up my decorating in here! I'm excited.

And I got to see sweet little Marielle. She's a super cutie. Here's some crappy phone pictures since I forgot to bring my camera.

Look at all that hair!

She was a very sweet baby. She slept any time she wasn't eating for the most part. She was very cuddly and had that newborn smell that everyone loves. Ramona was a little jealous of me holding her, but she got over it pretty quickly. She poked the baby in curiosity a few times and said "baby" but that was the extent of her interest. I think she was jealous that Marielle already has more hair than her. But I had a lot of fun and it was good to see everyone and welcome the new little one into the family.

My grandma was also back up from Florida and is ready to get on dress making so we're going to get going on that. I'm sending in the deposit for catering tomorrow, so the wedding is trudging along. It feels like we have forever and no time simultaneously.

I'll throw in another pic that was on my phone. They gave Ramona a hospital gown to wear at her last pediatrician appointment. I thought it was pretty funny, so I wanted to get a picture of it. Unfortunately, this was the best picture I got.

Baby Goo and What Not

So, Mony learned two tricks yesterday- spin around and jump. Both are super cute (obviously). Nothing exciting is going on lately, except we got catering figured out. So all the big stuff is booked for the wedding and it's mostly down to the details. I'm feeling good about stuff. Sorry, I have nothing of value to say tonight.
