This first picture is a group photo of my husbands side of the family. Starting on the top row of faces on the left:

The Last Mimzy

I just bought this DVD, and it was a great movie. Then I went to the official website for it and found a few fun things to do.

FastAccess DSL

Yay!! I finally got DSL. Yes, I was stumbling along with regular old dial-up internet but today, I finally got my DSL modem and installed it and it is wonderful! I'll never go back!..!...!...

On to other things. I really wish I had a digital camera. I would upload so many pictures on here.
My son went swimming with his daddy and stepsister the other day. DH said it took him about an hour to coax him into the water but then once he was in, he wouldn't get out. Almost fell asleep in the pool playing so hard. He's only 3.
Speaking of the stepsister. She lives in Ohio, but is visiting us here in Kentucky for 10 days. DH hardly gets to see her because she lives so far away. It is a 7 hour drive from our house to hers. So we love any time we get to spend with her. She is 11. Wish I had some pictures to post.

My baby girl is 4 1/2 months old. Finally putting cereal in her bottle at night and last night she slept 10 hours because of it. Wow. I was really able to catch up on my sleep. Speaking of which, I really need to get to bed.

It's Me Again, Margaret...

Here it is, late at night, and I'm still awake!! I can't seem to go to bed at a decent time anymore.

My baby girl is now 4 months old. She should be turning over and making distinguishable sounds but she isn't. Of course, I know, all babies develop at their own rate. And I have to keep in mind that she was about 3-4 weeks early, so these milestones will come later. But she's definitely getting more active. She plays with her rattle now for several minutes at a time before dropping it. She laughs and smiles at me whenever I stop to talk to her. She stays awake more during the day. She's trying her voice out, just not quite making good sounds, even though I swear I heard her say mama earlier today, although that was probably just wishful thinking.

Right now I'm watching Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List. This is hilarious. I've always liked her comedy and this show is really tickling my funny bone. :-)

Can't wait for tomorrow night's new installment of Top Chef: Miami. Of course, I know I'll Have to wait, but I don't wanna!! I like that show. :-P

Well, that's all for now.

'Nite, 'nite..

Long time, no see...

Wow... It's been awhile since I posted anything here. Too much else to do with a brand new little baby!!

Well, let's get you caught up on a few things that have happened...

My dad's dog, Penny, died last week. I went over to help bury her in the back part of the yard, under the weeping willow tree. She lived 9 long full years, and passed peacefully in her sleep. Gotta be one of the best ways to go... I hope I'm so lucky.

My little boy is finally (mostly) potty-trained!! Yay... I thought he was going to be in diapers/pull-ups forever!! He finally decided one day that he was going to wear big boy underwear, and that meant he had to use the potty. We still have a few accidents every once in a while, usually when he's busy playing outside and doesn't want to stop to come in until it's too late. :-)

Also, been doing a lot of yard work at my parent's house. (With help from sister, Tammy) We've planted four trees, a plot of marigolds, I mowed the yard for my dad, as he just didn't feel up to it this week. Still need to do some more landscaping, plan on making a little patio area down between the retainer walls outside the basement door, and setting up the patio table and chairs, with umbrella, and planting a small flower garden. Also need to hang flower boxes on front porch and finish cleaning off back porch.

As for my house, I finally got around to taking down the garland and christmas lights from the front porch. Isn't that awful?!? Need to find someone with a trailer I can borrow to get rid of some junk from the yard. Also really wanting to do a little planting around the front porch. Is it too late in the year to try to grow plants?? Maybe if I get something already started and blooming.. hmmm..

I know I'm just renting here, but the place looks so bare, and devoid of personality... I want to do something to liven it up. Maybe I'll actually get around to posting some pics of it, too.
