I'm pretty sure I'm winning the Worst Blogger award over here. Hands down. I'll spare you my laundry list of
excuses reasons and focus instead on my current second-favorite reason I'm not blogging (first-favorite being the cute baby, obviously): because I'm catching up with 2008, yo!
I like to be really behind when it comes to popular book/movie franchises. See also: I just read/watched Harry Potter last summer. Anyway. Last week Matt and I noticed that Twilight was on Netflix and we discussed how neither of us had either seen it. Also, Matt was begging me to please NOT watch another episode of my current super-embarrassing show of choice...so I decided to appease him by opting for Twilight instead. So we watched it and I loved it!!
So on Friday (I had the day off) I went to the library and got the first book and the second and third movies, and long story short...now all of my spare time is being spent catching up on everyone's favorite vampire love story from a decade ago. Woo! Is everyone already sick of talking about it? Because now that I know what's up, I'm ready to debate. My deepest apologies to my office-mate/friend who gets to hear my running commentary of thoughts as I wade through the franchise.
So anyway...I'm reading YA novels into the wee hours of the morning, thus I do not make time to do things like write about my weekend and my cute baby. Shameful.
At any rate...
Between Palm Sunday and Easter weekends, we got to see ALL of our siblings and nieces and nephews! That means Millie got to have some exciting Cousin Time!
My niece Carley was all about helping "Mill-Mill" with her paci. It was rather precious.
Millie and Laney are old enough to notice each other now! They had fun "playing" (ya know, chewing toys) together and cuddling on the couch.
Millie and Eliana also had fun playing together...although Millie seemed pretty jealous of Eliana's ability to crawl. Also, her hair. Or maybe that's just me.
We took advantage of our day off last Friday and went to the UGA Vet School's open house. They had a lot of cool animals there, which was right up Millie's little animal-loving alley.
In less thrilling news, Millie had her first school picture day. Apparently it was boring and slightly repulsive?
These pictures really crack me up. But I'm going to need to get a second job so that I can afford to buy all of the amazing photo-emblazoned things...like mouse pads...and locker magnets...and dog tags. Truly. So many magical things to purchase.
Easter came and went and it was wonderful. Millie wore a ridiculously bright dress and she couldn't have been any cuter. I love her face in this picture...like she was just so over our photo session or something?
Life is just peachy. We don't do many things that would conventionally be considered exciting, but in between working and errands and sleeping and Twilight-reading, we manage to have a lot of fun.
We come home and play on the bed and apparently it's pretty great.
When the weather is nice, I don't even bother to change out of my work clothes before we head out for a walk. Millie is my favorite accessory to wear!
Maybe one day soon I'll finish vampire love dramas and have more time to sit down and write...or maybe I'll just find some other decade-old book saga to plow through, who knows.
Now...let's all pretend it's 2008 and Twilight is something new that we all want to talk about! Tell me: are you Team Edward or Team Jacob? Oh yeah, and I'm not even done reading Book 2 (but have watched Movie 2), so feel free to not spoil things when you weigh in, ha! I'm trying this new thing where I don't go immediately read the Wiki for the final book to see how it all ends...it's tough, but I'm trying to stay strong.
