The Diapers are Coming!The Diapers are Coming!
Couldn't resist the Paul Revere play on words.The boys and I just read one of our all time favorite books last night,John,Paul,George and Ben,and that just rolled off my tongue.If you love children's books,like I do and you love offish humor,like I do...check out this book by an extremely talented author.Super funny and educational to boot.
Back to the diapers.Yes,indeed folks,the day after tomorrow,Zoey's diapers will or SHOULD arrive on our doorstep.Excited and so much so,that I might just prop the princess upon the top of the stack and capture the Kodak moment.Kidding.At least about the photo but not about the excited part.My new best friend,Rick,from Shield Healthcare of California,called this morning and notified me that shipment is en route.Turned out to be not as big a battle as I was geared up for.Which was nice.All sarcasm aside,we feel extraordinarily blessed to be having such a service provided for Zoey ... and I am hanging onto the notion and the hope that one day,Zoey will prove Miss So and SO wrong and bid farewell to diapers all together.
Springbreak officially began this afternoon.Looking forward to the break in routine.Matt's mom and dad will be coming in from Chicago on Saturday for a week,followed by Mark's mom and his aunt,from NY, the following week.Throw in Easter and Jessica' birthday on Easter Sunday and that shapes up to be a definite break in routine.Not complaining in the least bit ... looking forward to all of it.Ample time for wonderful memory making.
*One of Zoey's favorite things to do is make her way over to the lower oven and "talk" to herself in the reflection.I just love watching her do this.And today,as I was battling my love/hate relationship with my stainless steel appliances,I captured a few photo's of her in "conversation" mode.At one point Matt came down and was putting his lunch together for work,or is that dinner when you work 1pm -1am,not sure which but anyway, as he was going about his business,Zoey paused long enough to wave to him and do his "name sign',which, because he is tall,6ft 7in,we pat our hands on our heads for his "name".I thought is was so cute and so smart ... two "words" together,"hi" and "Matt".Love this little girl... it is truly the simple things,like watching her engage in her reflection, that bring me just joy and remind me daily that ... it's all good.Life,in this moment,is all good.
*In further review of these photos,I am convinced I have the worlds worst camera ... or could it possibly be,the photographer and lack of knowledge of the afore mentioned and the photoshop that is readily installed in my computer?I say the former and am pledging to save my pennies for a new one.Which,my husband would say,would mean I should stop purchasing things like this.But seriously,after seeing it on this amazing blog ... I just had to have one!Don't you agree?Back me up people,I'm counting on you!!
