Rowan's first taste of a green apple. Though you can't tell by this look - she loved it.

Oh No

Oh No
Oh No,

Rowan's mimima (my mother) decided it would be a great idea to give her a push pop - I am sure you can see my head shaking now. Keep in mind we were getting ready to make a 7 hour car trip - just Rowan and I.

Halloween, Birthday or both?

This seems like such a petty concern. But I have been turning this around in my head over and over again.

I would like to get her a costume for Halloween - but if we go Trick-Or-Treating then you know it would be really for me (to show her off and to get the loot) - so I can't pretend there. Otherwise I will just get her the costume to take a picture of her in. So theres 20 bucks or so.

But - her birthday is next weekend - so why spend 20 bucks on a costume just to take a picture of her on a Holiday that she won't remember - when I could spend it on her birthday.

So thia has been goign back and for in my head - I may just check Sunday to see if that have any decent costumes for dirt cheap, and if they do, pick on up and take that picture (and show her off to the trick or treaters that come to the door of course)

We will see!

Wow - almost a year!

Rowan's first birthday is coming soon - and I just can't believe it is almost a year since she was born - and over a year since I started this blog! LOL

I know I haven't been the most consistance - but I haven't given up on the blog either.

You know - it is funny how your wants and needs change so drastically when you have a child.

When I go to Target - I realized that I now b-line to the baby/toddler clothes. I don't think I have bought something for myself since I was pregnant (thank goodness my mother has - otherwise I would have a very pathetic wardrobe right now)

Also - I am having surgery on my back next month - nothing really huge, but I will be in the hospital for 2-3 days - and of course I won't be able to put my baby to bed - or many other things. And then when I get out of the hospital, I won't be able to pick her up for a while afterwards - and of course this really has me bummed.

I know I will survive - it is just interesting how things change so completely.
