I love the new BLOCKBUSTER VIDEO commercials! The one where the guinea pig does tricks and juggles the mice...or when he busts out in the "Flashdance" dance. It's so adorable!!! Yeah, I know...I watch way too much television. =P
didn't do much yesterday...just vacuumed and cleaned house. I try to
vacuum often since I found tiny spider bites on Ashlyn's back, arm,
and legs! *owie!* It's also my own personal obsession to keep things
clean, tidy, and dust-free.
Ashlyn turns 5 months old today! What have I noticed about her this month? She prefers standing to sitting. She can grab things and bring them to her mouth. She started eating solid food. She can follow you with her eyes (even from across the room). She learned to respond to her name. She tries to imitate sounds and laughs along with others. She can pinch *ouch!*. She can grab her toes. She likes to smacks her lips. Hmmm...what else? She still smiles, "talks", and drools a lot, and she is an attention-hog! Definitely NOT a shy baby. I'm still waiting for her to roll from back to tummy or vice versa...but she hasn't yet. So now I try to give her more tummy-time.
and Oli are visiting. They're in town for some convention, and they're
going to stay with us. YAY! *jumping up and down* Bett's also coming
to town (tomorrow), but she'll be staying in LA for the PAC-10. I'm
really excited to see them! I swear, living here is a daily reminder
of how lucky I am to have such truly wonderful friends!
was storming tonight...and to add to the dreariness, tonight's Dawson's
Creek was a spooky one. It was similar to a teen fright flick like "Urban
Legends" or "Scream". Ivy and Oli finally got in around
10pm. Aric soon followed...he stopped over at Ed's for a bit after school
to pick up some stuff. I fixed us a snack and after Ashlyn was put down
to sleep, we stayed up to talk and catch up.
