All things considered and after the past few days, today was a very pleasant day. The weather was breezy, but warm. Bella was in a relatively good mood. And I was able to have some much needed "me time." The house is also clean and we have groceries for the next few days. I feel like today was a productive day and I am very happy about that. Life is just a bowl of cherries... as can be seen on Bella's outfit today.
Bella was up and at 'em bright and early. She has learned to sit up and enjoys sitting up in her crib until one of us comes to get her. She is aware of the video monitor and often gazes into the camera. It's actually pretty darn cute and is much more pleasant than waking up to a crying baby. Bella played contently by herself this morning, while I was able to get a few chores done around the house. She did fight her morning nap, but gave up after about 20 minutes of playing in her crib. She slept for about two hours and woke up in a great mood. Her good mood has continued into the evening and she is playing by herself while as I am typing.
We are waiting for Ian to get home, who has been working long hours. He may even have to work tonight, which is no fun, but hopefully it makes for an easier day tomorrow. Busy season in the accounting world is no fun for the employees or the families they often leave behind. Luckily busy season comes and goes relatively quick, so this will be all but a forgotten memory in another few weeks.
Tomorrow we were supposed to go to the zoo with some friends, but this has been cancelled. Perhaps we can get to the zoo within the next few weeks, before it gets too warm. We are going to have lunch with our new friends, the Parks tomorrow, which should be fun. This weekend we have a birthday party to attend and will possibly be making a cameo at the Strawberry Festival in Plant City. I am really looking forward to family time this weekend and it's so nice to know that we won't be wasting the weekend having to complete chores around the house.
I would also like to give myself a pat on the back for being so diligent with the blog this week. I set a goal and I am in the process of accomplishing this goal... Good job, Kim!
Well, it is getting close to Bella's bed time, so I'm going to finish this post by saying that today was a very good day... end of story.
Ian, Kim & Bella
