A is for Atlanta Botanical Garden. We went to the Light in the Garden event (exhibit? What do you call it?) with Matt's parents- it was really beautiful!
|I'm just going to make this mean face, okay, Mom?|
|Hey, this is fun!|
|Bravo, grass! Way to grow!|
E is for emoji. Matt recently sold out and got an iPhone ("sold out" as in he was probably the last person on earth to still be rocking a flip phone...I seriously thought Millie would get a smartphone before he would). As suspected, my favorite part of him having an iPhone is texting emoji to him. He thinks they are stupid. I'm sure I can convince him otherwise. Or else I'll die trying...
F is for flying.
G is for Gossip Girl. I started watching this show for the first time last week. It's very entertaining, but I spend most of my time trying to convince myself that no kids actually live like that, right? There is NO WAY that even the super rich kids of the upper East Side actually LIVE LIKE THAT...right?? (I'm mostly referring to how much the drink/party. I can even understand rampant drinking, but like- they just go into bars and get served like they are...ya know, NOT FOURTEEN. Is that a thing?? Am I really so sheltered that I can't even fathom that happening?)
H is for horseback riding. Millie tried her hand at it at an antique store Saturday.
|Mommy, I think I will stick to crawling, thanks.|
J is for July. I'm not trying to rush June or anything, but I'm really looking forward to going on vacation in July...also: baby Fourth of July outfits.
L is for lamb. Millie makes a really cute one.
M is for monograms. I don't have a lot of monogrammed or 'Southern'-style clothing for Millie, but I do have this...and she wore it Sunday. And she was off-the-charts fabulous in it. (Don't worry, another picture to come...)
N is for no. This is a word Millie has started to hear lately (like when she's trying to scale bookcases and pull electronics/heavy items off shelves...). Apparently it's a really hilarious word, based on how she laughs her head off every time she hears it. It's awesome. I'm so funny.
O is for one hundred. That is how many squats I did each day last week (well, except Sunday. Day of rest and all). I plan to keep it up this week, because...why not?
P is for party. People keep asking what I'm planning for Millie's first birthday. This is quickly becoming my least favorite thing to talk and think about. I reeaaaallllly do not like planning parties/events. Or hosting them. Or paying for them. Or cleaning up after them. I had hoped my daughter's first birthday might prove to be the exception, but so far...nope. Ugh.
Q is for quinoa. We had my favorite zesty quinoa salad for dinner, and it seems that Millie actually didn't like it! Or maybe she was just in a mood or something, but this would appear to be the first food that she's rejected outright. It was devastating, except not really. More for me!
R is for ruffles. Because what monogrammed bubble outfit would be complete without butt ruffles?
S is for selfies. I'm pretty sure Millie gets tired of posing for them with me.
|Really, mom? Again? Ugh. I can barely even bring myself to applaud this.|
V is for very large woman. This plant-covered sculpture at the Botanical Gardens was really cool!
|Yaaaay sculpture! Way to go!! *clap clap clap*|
W is for walking. We finished off the weekend with a hike in the woods. Some of us were too tired to stay awake for the whole thing...not naming any names, though.
X is for uhhhh...xray. And luckily our weekend didn't involve any of those. Ha.
Z is for zzzzzz...as in, it's past my bedtime. Coming up with this list took approximately five hundred times longer than I'd thought it would. If you noticed that I skipped K, U, and Y...it's because at some point I got so tired that I couldn't even think of anything stupid (like xray), so like...delete. And now I'm done! Peace out, yo!
