She's not really big enough for it quite yet, but she gets a kick out of sitting in it for about 49 seconds at a time. We're happy to acquiesce. Because she really does look like a bobble head when she sits there.
When Millie wasn't able to serve as my full-time entertainment because she was doing something boring like napping, I amused myself:
I've had that app for like a year and it doesn't get old. I put beards on Millie and Laney and texted the pictures to my parents with captions like they grow up so fast!!! and stuff like that. It cracked ME up, anyway.
On Saturday night my sister-in-law came over to hang out for awhile. We ate sushi, watched football, drank wine, and (finally) got all of the wall art up in the nursery! Let me tell you: wine and hanging gallery walls are a stellar combination. HA.
We spent a lot of time getting excited for Sunday night's Walking Dead Season 5 premiere. But we had extra reasons to be excited beyond just liking the show...
Remember back in June when I said I had a secret that was killing me to keep but I had to keep it but then I gave some really awesome clues so that maybe you could try to guess what the secret was??
Well, lots of you guessed it- or almost guessed it.
Matt (not me!!) spent two days being an extra in Walking Dead!!!!
It was a really fun experience for him (and me, vicariously)- but unfortunately, not one he was allowed to talk about publicly until after the episode aired. But it aired last night!!! So let's talk away!!
That's his back (with a machine gun strapped to it). Basically you saw his legs run by, then this ghostly shot of his back/head. If you blink, you miss it.
The happy news: You could see him much better in the trailers.
Perhaps the yellow arrows will help you locate him. Since this trailer aired in July, we were really hopeful that we'd be able to see him on the 'big screen' when the episode aired. Sadly, we couldn't (in this scene). Womp womp. They panned far enough left to see the girl next to him!!!! But not him!!! Oh well. We re-watched the episode last night and only on the second viewing did Matt notice himself running by in that other scene. We had been totally focused on the fence scene and were so devastated that we didn't see him there that we didn't look hard enough during the running/chaos scenes!
So back when he filmed (in May), I was WAY OVER THE TOP EXCITED LIKE PEEING MY PANTS LIKE YOU CAN'T IMAGINE HOW FREAKING OUT I WAS and I had this huge plan to interview Matt and do a big tell-all on the blog because uhhhh hello, it is so cool that he was an extra on the best show on TV!!!! But then a lot of other exciting things happened over the summer and fall (can you think of any? hint: she's growing a beard already) and I never got around to actually 'interviewing' him and writing it up for a post. So last night Matt was like "do you have questions for me? Are you going to interview me for the blog??" and I was like...uhhh...riiiight. I still want to! I just haven't thought of what to ask yet. So maybe this will work out for the best- do you have any questions for him? Since today is a bank holiday, Matt is home and has plenty of time to answer all of your burning (heh heh- if you watched the episode) questions about zombies, machine guns, the Terminus set, and the general glamour of being a
Hollywood Atlanta extra. So ask away! He's an open book, except for if it's something he can't be an open book about. I don't feel like getting sued by AMC. But he says he doesn't know any spoilers anyway, so I don't think it'll be a problem.
In conclusion, my baby is adorable even with a beard, and my husband faux-stabbed zombies for money. Happy Monday!!!
