Rachel, You're way too creative!! I'm sorry that Lorelai was sick most of the time. Poor little girl. On the bright side, at least you got to spend two weeks with your best friend! Hope y'all had a good trip home.

Very cute. That was a good, comprhensive list of your trip. We really should have taken more photos and videos. I'll upload the one of Lala and P when they first met. LOL!


we miss you already

You poor thing....no pampering and a sick baby the whole time...

Glad you have fun reading our adventures...and misadventures!

To clarify: I am not the mother of a super genius. Though I have read about parents who potty train at 3 months (!!), mine still does her potty where most babies at 10 months do a potty -- in her diaper. I think the sign was purely coincidental at the end of her grunting and groaning, but I'm giving her the benefit of the doubt. :)

Thanks for the tips about sign language... I think my husband would LOVE IT if we signed touchdown by this weekend? We'll see! Ha! If you really are interested in early potty training, read the book Train Up a Child by Michael and Debi Pearl... but as for me, I'm waiting until the usual time!

Rachel...you Rock!! I love the post :) Sorry we didn't catch up again. Is Lorelia doing better? I go tomorrow for glucose test number two. What am i going to do for 3 hours. Although i may get another expectant mom parking spot. That would make it all worth it :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Our babies are about the same age. Bear is 1 today. Your daughter is beautiful.

Yeah...good ice at Sonic.

The pic of your husband in the sidebar is making me laugh. I thought at first that below it, it said The Diagnosis, and I wondered what horrid disease he had that made those growths on his face! lol! Oh, how I do crack me up.

Excuse me for a minute while I risk revealing a brain blip, but...have I met you? Are you in San Antonio too? Did we talk about a MIRL? I'm such a dunce that way.

But if we didn't, maybe we should.

You are way too kind. No really! I AM thinking about selling them, just because they've been well-received with friends and on-line. I'll let you know!

By the way, your little one is way too cute!
