-Seeing a mockingbird hopping around the front yard today: "DUCK!! Duck--SEE DUCK???!!!!" (Everything with a beak or bill is a duck in her mind. Oh, and chicken...chicken is something you eat.)
-She loves the moon and is expert at finding it in the sky whether it's day or night.
-She now informs us "I stinky" when she needs a change.
-"Noooooooooo, Nooooooooo" is becoming a favorite phrase.
-When I'm working on stuff outside she has to help. If I don't let her hold the hose when I'm watering the flower beds, she grabs a watering can and goes over to the faucet, trying to unscrew the hose so she can water things all by herself.
-She loves carrying a purse, always hanging over her elbow.
-One of her absolute favorite activities is making the bed. She hands me each pillow and blanket and when we get finished she is SOOOOO happy that she did it!
-Her baby's name is "Deeshee" D.C. but with an H in there. Why? I have no idea, but that is what she calls it.
-She insists on having her vitamin every day. Runs in the kitchen, points at the shelf and yells, "Treat, treat" until she gets it.

Family Photo Op (freaky how Matt just blends in there)

Seriously, it's 4:00 am, why am I still awake?

Oh, now I remember, it's the first night in a week I haven't had to take Nyquil. Ugh. If I take it now I'll sleep all morning and won't remember to get Autumn out of bed.

Mother's Day

Was a little weird. I'd gotten a gift for my mom (I was supposed to be in IN today) and hadn't gotten anything for my MIL (since Matt was going to and I wasn't going to be here). But of course, I was here. So that got messed up.

It was also Matt's birthday, but I gave him his gift early since I wasn't supposed to be here today. But I was, so then I felt silly cause I didn't have anything to give him today. (Oh, and it was a watch.)

Best thing about my mother's day--feeling better. A lot better. Still tired, but so much better. Flying tomorrow (knock on wood). Oh, and I got a Starbucks card from "Autumn." Yes, there is finally a Starbucks in town.

btw, the smoke is really really bad today. it looks like thick fog everywhere. and it's not moving. today is a day to be inside and be grateful for air conditioners.


I just paid an additional $215 to move a $59 ticket to Monday. Isn't that ridiculous? Got sick with Autumn's bug last night. Just in time to keep me from flying today. Ugh. Just hope I'm better by Monday. Can't move the flight again. :-(

Thursday, May 10, 2007


and Autumn's doing a lot better since she got the IV. She's stopped throwing up. We're still having a hard time convincing her to drink though.

Picky eater

While we were at the Dr. today, I was talking to him and we were discussing having picky eaters for kids. I've never been around picky kids before really. I'm the oldest of 12 and we all came into the world loving things like spinach, broccoli, etc. All those things kids aren't supposed to want to eat.

Autumn, on the other hand, likes starches, chicken nuggets, yogurt, and a couple fruits. That's it. No meat. No vegetables.

Most kids I've been around, when given pizza, pick the toppings off to eat and leave the crust. Autumn, when given pizza, flips it over and picks the crust off and eats it, leaving only the toppings...

Autumn's stomach bug, which seemed to be getting a lot better, got a lot worse yesterday. We've spent the morning at the Dr. She had to get an IV and we're headed back on Thursday.

Renassaince Festival

We went to the GA Renaissance festival just for a couple hours on Saturday. Autumn had fun. :-)

The dragon was fine until he started talking with a human voice.
Then he was scary.

Just a few quick pics...
