Rainy Days & Mondays

It's rained off and on since midnight here, and the rain is very
welcome! We've been pretty dry, and now have standing water in the
yard. It keeps going back and forth between sunny/blue skied and
cloudy/pouring rain. Emmy survived her first thunderstorm without any
apparent trauma, although it did wake her up from a nice nap (darn you,
thunder!). Later this afternoon, if weather permits, we plan to hit the
library and eat dinner at Red Robin. I dunno, something about a rainy
Sunday afternoon makes us want a cheeseburger & milkshake.

We'll be visiting Indiana soon, and Emmy will get to meet all kinds of Hoosiers including great grandparents, Grandpa Loehmer,
Uncle Josh, and all sorts of extended family. She's quite excited about
the whole thing, let me assure you. We'll also be stopping off in
Cincinnati to visit our great buddies, Jen & Chad. Their daughter
Sophie is anxiously awaiting the arrival of Em as well. We plan to hit
the zoo while there, which is having a Bloom Fest (or some sort of
blooming/flower type fun).

I only have 3 more weeks left of my
maternity leave. It surely has flown by, and I can't say I'm terribly
anxious to get back to work. We've got a great babysitter set up for
Emmy until her daycare spot opens in June sometime. It's such a relief
knowing your baby will be in good hands while you are out earning a
living to keep her in diapers. This work thing is going to really mess
up my schedule though...up at six, morning nap with Em, nice afternoon
walk around the neighborhood, Oprah. Ugh. The only thing that will be
the same is the up at six part (the part I could most do without!). It
will be interesting to see how well we transition to a
two-working-parent household!
