Second, I didn't tell many people, but I had surgery yesterday, and am recovering fine. I had a lipoma removed, so it wasn't a big deal. But, I was a little overhwhelmed when they walked me into the OR and strapped me down to the table. Big lights, lots of equipment - wow. It was all new to me. And no, I never watched E.R. All I remember was someone saying, "This will make you drowsy, but not too drowsy." Yeah, ok, the next thing I remember is being wheeled into the recovery room. Anesthesia-induced amnesia is freaky.
Onto happier topics! Scott and I are trying to eat healthier, so we bought a ton of fruit this past week. Even Ava couldn't get enough of the cantaloupe. Notice she only has one sock on. Interesting.
This just kills me...up until this point, I've been lucky if Ava is looking somewhere in the direction of the camera when I take her picture. This time, I thought I should try the ol' "cheeeeeese" trick. She was far too focused on her snack in the first pic, but the second one is a winner! Look at that tilted head and one cheek stuffed full of food - what a pose!
I love this child. If only I could get her to help me clean the WHOLE house, and not just around the dog's water bowl.
And onto the most exciting event of the week...her adventure with the Cozy Coupe. I went out shopping this afternoon, and when I came back, I saw Scott zooming her around the backyard in the Cozy Coupe. Anyone who is familiar with the CC knows that the side door doesn't stay shut. More than once I had to close my eyes as they took a fast corner, and she started to fall out the door. Who knew the "incident" would happen when the car was sitting still?
"Look at me, Mommy! I'm on the grass and not moving...not even in the slightest. How dangerous could it be?"
I'm still not sure how this happened. And it happened twice. The first time she got stuck under the car. This time she crawled away.
Luckily, she shook it off, and just tipped the car back over. But then she needed to pick up all of the "cargo" (rocks and her sippy cup.)
"It's all good. Let's roll!'
After this, the evening quickly went downhill, and she was in full-blown toddler meltdown mode. She went to bed 30 minutes early tonight. But not before using Daddy as a chair! He's just so darn comfy.
We're going to try to have a nice breakfast out tomorrow, and then I'm hoping to head off to a baby shower in the afternoon. Our good friends, Megan and Erik, welcomed a little boy to their family last month. We can't wait to meet Charlie!!
