Hey- it's snowing!! In Hot-lanta!!! I got a couple pictures even. I posted them on my flickr account: www.flickr.com/photos/carynabbott . Everyone check them out!
I bought a swing for the baby. Julian has turned out to be a sort of hold-me type baby like Lara was, so I broke down and bought one. So far he seems to love it- except when Lara goes over and tries to play with him while he's sleeping. Grr.
This morning Lara was sitting on the couch and I was feeding Julian. I had put Monster's Inc. on TV and she was staring with a glazed-over expression, with maybe a little drool. I needed to call a friend, so I said, "Hey Lara, go get me the phone." So she said, "okay, mommy, I'll get the phone." Then she continued to sit and stare spacily at the TV. I repeated myself: "Lara, go get the phone for mommy." Without turning her head to look at me, she said, "I'll get the phone in a minute, mommy." Now how do you like that? I laughed out loud- not the best discipline technique, but sheez- the child really has a mind of her own! (In case you were wondering, I did make her get the phone for me.)
