Quiet Weekend

Babygirl came down with a cold on Friday, so we are having a quiet weekend.  She's tired and crabby, and has only short bursts of energy.  Her new favorite snack is saltine/peanut butter sandwiches.  I made chocolate chip cookies today, and that perked her RIGHT UP!  She is suddenly interested in TV, so we put on a Baby Einstein DVD (she's only seen it one other time), and she was entranced for all of 5-7 minutes.  It took a looooong time for her to fall asleep tonight...lots of TLC from momma, rocking in the rocking chair, listening to lullabies & repeat.  She's officially out (hopefully for the rest of the night), and we can finally relax.  Keith thinks he's getting her cold (I swear, the man has zilch for an immune system!), so I think I'll do some crafting tonight with the company of my ipod (and some chocolate chip cookies!)

We are renting a beach house this year with Keith's siblings and several other couples from Virginia.  They do this annually, and this is the first year we've been able to join them.  The countdown has begun, and we are SO READY!  Emmy will get to hang out with her cousin for the week, and I think they will have a blast.  They were here for a visit last weekend, and Emmy hasn't stopped saying her cousin's name all week.  

I'm including a cute pic of the kiddo, just because this one makes me smile.

Hope Emster is feeling better by now. Give her a hug from Grammy please. Y'know, the one covered in corgi hairs.
