Big Daddy and I felt like we sort of lost the summer after The Muffin was born and we've sort of felt the same about this past summer. I guess moving and having a baby within 7 days of each other combined with another move and a "to-do" list a mile long makes you feel that way. Now, it's Fall and I'm feeling like Christmas is so close and then Big Daddy will start working on his MBA again the first of the year. We are trying to get a few things taken care of before he starts spending almost all of his time away from work locked upstairs in the bonus room, a.k.a. his room.
We're having a "date day" to celebrate Big Daddy's birthday and I'm hoping to finish most of my Christmas shopping. I'm really excited about buying gifts for The Muffin this year. I feel like I finally know what she'll really like (B@rbie's, My Little P.onies) and my mom, sister and I have already picked out some really fun things. Baby Ellie is another story! Of course, she has all of The Muff's old baby toys and my mom already has a few new things for her. The Muffin loves this for herself, but it would really be for Baby Ellie. I'm just not sure that Big Daddy will go for an $80 baby toy... I'm not sure that I want us to spend that much money on it either!
I guess if all else fails, I can just get a few empty gift bags for my two sweet and crazy girls!Baby Ellie may look like an unwilling participant, but I assure you that she was loving this!
