+Baby cuddles and tiny leg warmers.
+Hubby and I got hooked on Friday Night Lights. We are almost through Season 2….how did I miss out on this show before? I love Eric and Tami’s marriage and parenting style, and I wish I could get away with saying “y’all.”
+Made this summer tart for dinner, courtesy of Natalie. I forgot to follow the directions about leaving the sliced tomatoes out to rest before baking so ours was a little watery, but the flavors are fresh and delicious. The caramelized onions absolutely make this recipe!
+Discovered that the little lady loves sleeping on her stomach. Now I know she is too young to do that overnight or in her crib, but for short naps where I am sitting 3 feet away and she is in eyesight, I let it happen. You would too – both for the quiet and the cuteness of a tiny baby bum in the air.
+My mom made us labels for 7 bottles of Relax Riesling that spell out “Parents.” You drink each bottle when the baby accomplishes a milestone. Caroline smiled for the first time (responsively, not a gassy or sleepy smile) at about 3 weeks so a little overdue, but we enjoyed this bottle together!
+Perfect ending to Shawn’s 5 weeks home with us. He is back to school and home only on weekends for less than a year of clinical rotations. It’ll go by so fast, I know this, but I miss him terribly.
