What An Incredible Smell You've Discovered!

Ah parenthood.  All kinds of new grossness.  We have a phantom smell in our living room.  It seems to be coming from the carpet, the couch, and Evy's toy box.  At first, I could have sworn a cat burglar broke in and left his mark.  But then I realized that the sour smell is probably emanating from the various surfaces that Little Miss has spit up on.  Now, let me just say that of course we clean up her spits.  But apparently, we are not doing a good enough job.  We've washed the couch cover and there is currently baking soda covering the carpet.  The plan is to fabreez the couch tonight before bedtime.  We'll see.

And may I just say, she's never actually spit into her toy box.  Sometimes there are no reasons.

 A souvenir from the museum.  Not sure why Kev looks grumpy.

Little Miss is rolling over these days!!  From back to tummy.  Apparently, she likes to take the tough stuff head on.  Must take after her daddy...

Oh, and bonus points if you got the Star Wars quote ;-)

I swear time jumps around here.  You blink, and you're in mid-June.  Work is.  Yep, it is.  I've been able to truck along nicely on my latest knitting project while on my lunch break.  Can't really say much about it cause it's a gift for someone, but I'll post pictures later.  Scary storms last week, but thankfully, they hit after we were all home and safe in our little cave apartment.  I do love a basement apartment, despite all the bugs.  We had two spiders in the shower this week.  Bleh.

Our friends are coming in from out of town this weekend!  Actually, they're probably already here.  I'm very excited.  We wanted to hit up the zoo, and I think we still will, but it will have to be a short trip.  Ninety degree weather and little babies do not mix.  Actually, 90 degree weather and Brig don't really mix either.

Kev is a leeetle stressed these days.  Poor fellow.  Starting a practice is hard work.  But I know it will pay off for him in the end.  Oh why yes, I did say starting a practice.  Take a look.  I promise more later on this as well.  Once time stops jumping.

June and Nervousness

Evy and I are alone this weekend, as Kev is currently on his way up to Chicagoland to take yet another course.  It's a long drive for him by himself, but he enjoys the classes.  Plus, how much longer would it feel if Evy and I tagged along?  Well considering that Little Miss does not much care for her car seat, I think interminable would be about how it would feel.  So we're alone, but that's not what I'm scared of.

I'm nervous about next week.  It's back to work for Brig come Wednesday.  I've been having back to work nightmares for a week or two now.  They usually involve me showing up late, or forgetting everything I've learned on the job, or somehow forgetting where my office is entirely.  I've been obsessing over my return while Kev was here to talk to, so I shudder to think what will go on in my head this weekend.

But, how cute is this?

On a more positive note, Evy and I went to the bank and Target this morning all by ourselves.  There was no screaming in the car, and she was a very good girl while I gave into the various temptations that present themselves at Target.  Like these fish outfits.

Oh!  Aaannnd I have a new nephew!  He was born on Wednesday and is healthy and happy.  I haven't seen him yet, but I've been told he's a charmer :)
