Kick Me

With a baby girl on the way, it’s time to make some changes to the nursery. That room was already painted blue when we moved in here, and since we were expecting a boy at the time, I didn’t bother to incur the expense of repainting even though I would have preferred a different color.

Call it a desire for equality or simply the usual pregnancy nesting instincts, but I feel the need to add some slightly more feminine elements in there. So I picked up a few little decorations and am looking forward to adding some cute little owls and such to one of the walls. Should be fun. I’ll post pictures on Flickr once I’m finished.

What a fun weekend. My Ninja had to work on Saturday morning but in trade he got to take Monday off, so it was like having a three-day weekend together. Saturday we kicked back for the rest of the day then cruised around town after dinner.

Then, on Sunday we hit up Downtown Disney after church and met up with my brother-in-law and his wife for dinner. Yesterday we went up to our old stomping grounds, ate lunch at our favorite restaurant, and visited with my dad and his wife, mother-in-law, and sister-in-law.

This week will be jam-packed, but at least we’re refreshed and ready.

Long Life

Our baby boy is back to his normal self again. Thanks for all the tips and well wishes. As a result we now have a few new tricks up our sleeves for when it happens again. Ah, the painful business of building immunities.

Speaking of the mini ninja being himself, have I ever mentioned how he goes totally bonkers when either of us use a computer? This kid will go all out to get his hands on laptops, cell phones, cameras, or any other electronic devices. In fact, by the time this kid was about ten months old he knew how to get through the initial lock screen on our iPhones.

And woe be it unto you if you have the nerve to withhold such a device from his destructive little paws. You will hear a shriek that you thought died off along with the pterodactyls of long ago. This kid cracks me up, but I thought you should know what I’m up against when it comes to updates.

Give Me Fever

What a day we had yesterday! Woke up early to take the wagon in for service. Got to the dealership, dropped off the keys, then started to share a bite of breakfast with my little man while we waited. Wasn’t expecting everything he downed to come right back up while we’re hanging out in the showroom.

Did my best to clean up but we needed fresh clothes. The service manager took pity on us and fixed us up with a rental car so we could get home to deal with the situation properly. Except Enterprise had a shortage of rental cars in the region, so I got to accept the only vehicle they had available.

You should have seen me behind the wheel of this Dodge Ram 1500 truck. Picture me at five and a half months pregnant trying to open the back gate and climb up in to the truck bed to get the stroller in and out. I almost needed to use a rope and grapple just to get in the stinking driver’s seat. Pure comedy, I tell you.

My little ninja isn’t doing so hot. This is his first nasty virus. His fever kept rocketing up to 104 degrees despite our best efforts, so we ended up taking him to the emergency room last night where we learned about alternating between Tylenol and Advil to keep the fever under control. So far so good.

No homework this weekend… Wahoo! Had a fun time watching the University of Washington tonight in their football game against USC. The two ninjas got decked out in their purple team gear and we all rooted for papa’s alma mater. This year’s game was almost a dead ringer for last year’s, except this time USC was the home team. The ending was the same though – a field goal in the final few seconds gave our Dawgs the win!

I’ve been extra proud to join my husband in rooting for the Huskies this past couple seasons because one of my friends from high school is now an assistant coach at UW, and their head coach, Steve Sarkisian, is of half-Armenian heritage just like me… and the Kardashians.
