Blast From the Past

Today (2/20) it got almost up to 70 degrees.  Just a few weeks ago (2/3), mom snapped this pick on her way to work:

Since Monday I've been a little sick (slight cough) so I'm not sleeping well and didn't get out to do too much during the week.. 

On Friday, Febuary 18th my school was closed but mom and pop still had to work, so Mimi came down to watch me for the day.  She even brought me a present - a super sweet new outfit from the Gap.  I'll post pics as soon as mom washes it and I get a chance to model it.  We had a lovely day and I even got to take a ride in the stroller for 45 minutes.  I'm loving this nice outdoorsy weather.

Mom needed a break, so Saturday dad and I went to see Mimi in Liberty.  Two days in a row of love from grandma, how lucky am I.  That night I saw the other set of grandparents.  Mom and dad had a Homeowners Association party so BobBob and Ta came over to watch me and put me to bed.  Sunday morning I saw Grandpa Dido and Donna for breakfast.  I feel like I'm getting passed around like a sack of potatoes, albeit a loved one.

Sunday afternoon was another nice day so I headed back out to BobBob and Ta's with the dogs.  We spent quite a bit of time outside, the dogs took a dip in the lake, and I took a spin in some antiques.  When I say antiques, you might be thinking cars, but that's where you'd be wrong.  I toodled around the driveway in an antique stroller and then had some lunch in an antique high chair, which happened to be the same one mom and uncle Ronnie used when they were kids.  Seriously...why is everything from the 70's that ugly puke yellow/green/orange color?  How could that have looked good at any time in history?



















Here's a little action footage of the antiques in use.





Mom wanted to be all artsy so she snapped these photos of me last week.  To get the full effect you have to view the entire series:

Thanks for letting me fall mom! 
If you look close enough you can see I still have tears in my eyes.

Many people have said this, me included, and I will say it again, your mom is a great writer Maddie. This will be your precious memory when you grow up.

I L-O-V-E the retro highchair. So hip! Looks like that railing will make it tough for you to push things off but I'm sure you'll overcome!
