Thursday

I don't have much to write about today. Maddie and I had a good day yesterday. We went to the best playground in Alexandria (Siobhan and I decided this) to enjoy the weather. Parks are still a little tricky at Maddie's age and size because they are always meant for bigger kids and there's not a ton she can do on her own. Plus, some of them are pretty high and I worry about her falling. But, it was fun anyway. This morning, I was in nesting mode once again and worked to get the toys in Maddie's room organized in this toy organizer thing I bought. That's done. I also moved her crib to make room for Sophia's crib (which I'm getting ready to order). Next on the agenda is to work on the basement and Maddie's closet. Normally we'd do it on Sunday, but it's a dog show weekend, so that takes priority. On Saturday, Gabe will go show early in the am and Maddie and I will stay home. That evening, a girl who works at dog school, is going to come over and watch Maddie for a few hours so that Gabe and I can go to the celebration dinner for his sister Patrice and her boyfriend Eric. They're celebrating that they finished law school! Pretty exciting for them :) Then, on Sunday, I'm bummed because we won't make it to church, because we're going to the dog show. Gabe says it's at a really pretty place where Maddie can run around, so that's what we'll do with our Sunday this week. Tonight is cherry-cola ribs for dinner (very excited) and now I'm off to rest while Maddie does :)

Thanks Mom. Patrice does read this blog, so I'm sure she'll see your comment. Dinner was great; very filling as Morton's always is. And, we have a new plan for today. Just Gabe and I are going to the dog show and Maddie is going to be at Sandy's to play with Janie and Alex since they are both home. Yeah, a day off!!
