November Randoms, pt.1

1. W got me an iPad for our anniversary and I was sort of annoyed because: 1. It’s too expensive, 2. I don’t really need one (I have a laptop, a Kindle, and now an iPhone) and 3. I specifically told him I wanted family photos done as my gift and so I felt like he just ignored me ( which, yeah, he sort of did. BUT, I have used it a lot and really enjoy it so far. Look at me blogging on it! Wheee!

2. So I still really wanted to have pics done, but the budget was blown on that. Fortunately, I found a photog that does mini-sessions for a good price. I don’t need 5000 photos of our family from one session, just a couple to frame, so this should be perfect for that. Tomorrow is the day!

3. I keep hitting the “n” key on the iPad instead of the space bar. Does that happen to you?

4. I’ve been all about pumpkin this week: pumpkin granola and pumpkin muffins. Also, Dorie Greenspan’s Spinach and Bacon Quiche with homemade pâte brisée. A bit time consuming, but totally worth it.

5. I want to be Dorie Greenspan when I grow up.

6. There is an Army ball coming up in a couple of weeks. Suggestions as to where I could get an inexpensive formal dress? Also I think we’re going to leave LC at one of the post daycare centers while we go. I’m completely anxious about this even though it’s only for a few hours and Hubs and I clearly need some adult time (last time we went out alone together? June 9th. Haha.)  Anyone have any advice on how to get your baby to take a bottle?  More on this later.

7. I just can’t believe how fast our girl is growing. She LOVES books, much to our delight, and she rarely stops moving.  Her favorite thing lately is to crawl from the living room to underneath the jumperoo in the kitchen and then just crawl in circles.  I love this age so much.  Tonight in the bath I dropped her duckie from up high so it splashed and she thought it was hilarious…she just grinned and laughed and splashed.  My heart is full!

That’s all for now…here are a couple from her 7 month shoot.

Soooo big!
