To your right you will find a picture of the Schap Family Bath. Our nightly routine for Anja has quickly turned into Theodore's routine as well!! Actually, it's kind of obnoxious because he doesn't usually sit where he is in the picture... most of the time he likes to hang out on the edge of the bathtub walking back and forth so that it makes it REALLY hard to wash the baby in the tub, whose bathtime it really is. But, Theodore was the center of attention for so long, who can blame him for his jealousy? Check out that huge belly on our baby girl! Can you tell who just had dinner?
I was going to do some Christmas shopping with my sister-in-law TusaRebecca today, but I cancelled on her. I can't tell you where we were going, but afterward we were going to knit together and I'm bummed that it didn't work out, but there's no way it would've been possible today. Anja was up about every hour last night (and the night before) and I was counting on her sleeping all morning, but she didn't! She was awake, and didn't want to be put down. So it was 2:30 before I was even ready for my day, yesterday's dinner dishes were still all over the kitchen and the pile of dirty clothes on Anja's bedroom floor was about to drown us all. Plus, my day doesn't seem to get going until I get my shower and makeup on. Until then I am a big, BIG
grouch-o. But eventually I got my shower taken and my makeup on and around that time Anja finally fell asleep and I was able to get all the dishes done and two loads of laundry. Hooray! But by then it was too late to get together with TusaRebecca... hopefully she didn't hate me too much for requesting a raincheck.
This is a dopey picture of me and Anja from the other night, to show off her cutie outfit from Auntie Perkalator! Too bad we both look like such losers in the picture.
And then there is the ice ornament from outside our kitchen window after the ice storm last weekend.
Of course I had sooooo much to blog about this morning when there was no time. Now I've forgotten everything. Except the fact that Martin set up the coffee maker this morning for double my usual daily amount of coffee, which is fantastic. I know I probably shouldn't be drinking as much coffee as I am, but I can't help it.... especially since the coffee we have now is chocolate truffle.....
