FIVE on Friday


So Wednesday morning I’m sitting down watching Emma flip through a Little Einstein search and find type book, when out of nowhere she says “six, seven, eight, nine, ten.” Yeah. Seriously. My jaw dropped and I got teary-eyed and I said “Oh my gosh how do you know that?” Turns out my Dad and her say numbers one through ten all the time. I don’t know if she really knows about counting, but she knows those. However, when we count our itty-bitty chocolates (her treat for cutting her nails) she skips the number two.


We went to Sesame Street Live on Sunday. So exciting! She enjoyed the majority of it. After intermission (when we got her a balloon) she lost her full focus on it and she spent the second half up and down, playing with anything she could get her hands on. Lol. It’s okay though. We paid extra to be in the fifth row, and at the Peabody if you’re over one you have to have your own seat, so she had plenty of room to move and she got to see Elmo up-close-and-personal.


After Sesame Street Live, Emma had a birthday party to go to for her friend Lorelei. It was a Minnie Mouse theme and Lorelei’s Mommy (Rachel) is a very crafty person so it was so amazing to see all the decorations and such. Anyway, Em decided to skip her nap that was supposed to take place in the car before SSL, and she didn’t nap afterwards, so my baby girl went all the way until bedtime without a nap. Wow. I’m sure you know where I was between 1 and 2:30am. Yep, in her room on the floor trying to get her to go back to sleep. Bad naps really do equal bad sleep at night. I really hope that we don’t have to do that again because Momma likes her sleep… especially on a work night.


I’m getting super excited for everything Valentine’s Day. I have no idea why I get like this every year. I guess I like hearts. Hahaha. I even get all emotional. Well, I think the combination of upcoming Valentine’s Day and the start of the New Year is what makes me so emotional. Just the fresh start and possibilities… think about it! So exciting. J


I really, really, really need to go shopping for new work clothes. I have some gift cards that I got for Christmas, I just haven’t had the time to use them. I used half of my JCP one on two pairs of work pants and a shirt, and I love the pants. Every time I wear them I think about how I want to go find some more. Ugh. I just can’t take Emma because she wants to walk and run around, and I hate to give up my time with her because I get so little in the first place. It’s a lose-lose. Booooo.


  1. I love the third picture of her at SSL, she looks so excited! Oh and I need to shop for work clothes, too. I got bleach on 1/3 pairs of work pants. :-(

  2. Super impressed with how well she behaved at SSL!

    I usually spend most of Valentine's season hating it and then one day I'll be like OMG I LOVE VALENTINE'S DAY LET'S BUY ALL THE HEART THINGS! Thank goodness I have a boy or else my daughter would be wearing pink hearts every day of February. With glitter.

    Have you tried online shopping? It's not ideal if you're the type that prefers to try things on first, but when I'm pretty confident of my size or a style that's worked in the past, I will usually just order it online. I just hate clothes shopping in the stores and I hate it 10 times more if I have Dez with me. In fact, I just refuse to do it because it's pretty much impossible.
