Welcome back, Baxter. And Lizzie.


As if things weren't crazy enough already! Baxter has returned, and he brought a friend with him this time. Her name is Lizard, Lizzie for short, and she's about 1,000 years old in people years. So all of a sudden we've become quite the cluttered house. Cluttered with living things, that is. And the best part is, they always want to be in the same room with us!

I sound like I'm complaining, but it's not so bad. Especially since Martin was still home sick yesterday when they arrived. I might have been overwhelmed if they'd come while I was the only one home, but having him here was great. Of course he was really hacky and snorky and half-dead the whole three days he was here, but whatever. He was still able to take the dogs out so I didn't have to do it.

Theodore seems to be adjusting well, too. Every time Baxter has come over since he left in November he's not acted like the best friend that he was before. On the one hand that's good because it means they aren't constantly attacking each other. But it's kind of sad at the same time.

Ok, last night we watched the CUTEST movie!! It was "The Holiday" with Kate Winslett, Crazy Jack Black, Cameron Diaz and Jude Law. It was sooooo cute!! I loved it!! There were so many adorable little twists, it was just great. I'm SO glad I picked that over "The Namesake" which I couldn't even decide if I wanted to see or not because I know it would've just made Martin and me mad watching it, knowing it wasn't nearly as good as the book. And I forget what else I thought I might get, but anyway, I'm glad I settled on "The Holiday" and all of you should go out and watch it because it's just adorable.

Anja's Ooma has brought her a little play gym thing. It must be from the same makers as her swing because it's got some of the same little animals hanging from it... including a TOUCAN!! She's just in heaven. She stayed under it for really most of the day yesterday.

Okay, so anyone who can help me with this small medical issue is welcome to do so: I have this very strong pain in my face. It's only on the right side and it starts in what I think is the sinus that's in the corner of your eye/bridge of your nose, and then it radiates up through my forehead. What is it? Any thoughts?

And here is Anja flirting with her turtle:

My favorite scene in The Holiday was the video store scene. I loved the Jack Black/Kate Winslett half of the movie. The other half was just about sex. Except when she goes to his house that one time...i don't want to ruin it for people who haven't seen it, though...but it's when she shows up with wine...that was a nice little plot twist.
But the video store when he sings theme songs to movies - that was awesome; I watched just that scene three times.

Do you have a sinus infection? My friend Dana had one really bad and said it's going around. Hopefully Baxter is being decently good! I'm off to take the GRE. Fun times.

Can I just say you have the cutest baby girl. Her chuddy cheeks and perfect skin. Ah! So cute.
