Of course now that I am back I have nothing to say. It could stem from the fact that I am really sleep deprived today, in desparate need of a shower and my sweet little baby girl is starting to grunt- her way of letting me know I better feed her soon OR ELSE! I guess I am too preoccupied to write a good blog. Remind me next time I make a "must do" list to add showering to it. That's seems like a really important thing I forgot to accomplish.
I leave you with a few pics. Boring? Perhaps. But I'll be back with some snarky witticism in my next blog... I hope...
Day we made Christmas cookies... yes, she is licking the frosting off of every surface. What's a day baking Christmas cookies without an insane sugar high?
This next one is my "let me pump a bottle so I don't have to pull a jug out in front of Christmas company and then let me proceed to feed her with my chin so that my hands are free for unwrapping presents" look. Comfortable. Thank you honey for snapping that photo.
The little bugs first smile caught on film:

Cute, right? Except, well, what would a blog be without some color commentary? Let's start with the dear husband. Sweetie, Grizzley Adams called and he would like his raw animal pelt back? What, that is your beard? Oh I'm sorry... Actually, the spouse knows that I like facial hair. Here's how our real conversation went:
Me: "The beard? Did you just forget to shave? We have a family picture today."
Husband: "I've had a beard for like 6 months..."
OK, so he didn't marry me for my keen power of observation. I'll give you that. And then there's me. I know, I know, it seems totally self absorbed to over analyze pictures of yourself when no one else really cares. But, again, I'm blogging here, and if a blog ain't a place for self-absorbed commentary on things that don't matter to anyone else, I don't know what is. For starters, I have a tad bit of Tanorexia happening here. See, I thought, seeing as how we were getting our portrait taken, I ought to add a little "kiss of sun" to me cheeks and go for the sunless tanner for a few days. Great, except the rest of my family looks like they're living in the sunless, pasty, bleak, blizzardy plains of Iowa in the middle of winter--- rightly so.

You've seen those "elf yourself" videos right? Well, me and mine, we roll gangsta style.
I dedicate this post to my bloggy friend Trace, who is the most gangsta suburbian white chic I know. 'Cept by "friend" I mean stranger on the internet who could very well be a 50 year old perv man, but I don't think so cuz girl's got style!!

Loving this first one, my baby girl Millie is all "Oh no you're not kissin' me with those slobbery lips girlfriend!"
This next one is just a gratitous, ridiculously cute, baby shot. That's right, I get to kiss those tiny little perfect lips all day long if I want to!
