Tomorrow is Scott’s first day back to work. Big breath. I am already in need of a big nap and now Scott will be out the door at 5:30am in the morning. I should be a zombie by Sunday evening.
Lexi was up every hour last night which is very unusual for her. Not sure what that was about.
Emma had her 2 year old visit on Wednesday. She is 35 1/2″ and 27 lbs. Above average height, low on weight. Mom says that’s exactly what she always heard at the dr about me. He said she was very bright and even looked back at her 6 month comments and it read she was a bright baby. Emma said excuse me, Mommy today and for some reason that was really funny to me. We haven’t worked on saying that but I do say that to her when I want her out of my way and she did the same to me. Smart girl!
Emma finally started calling me Mommy again instead of Amy. It’s been a few months now. Tuesday a week ago she called me Momma once and then Wednesday once again. Each day she called me Mommy a couple more times a day. Today she’s only called me Amy one or two times. And a lot of times she will correct herself. Finally. I really was starting to get tired of it. She’s my little girl for goodness sakes!
We decorated for Christmas Tuesday. Scott did the outside and I did the tree. It was a pain but it is worth it. I’m really enjoying seeing the tree lit up every night.
I’ve been into cooking the past few days. I cooked Bobby Flay’s cuban burgers again which my family raved over just like his did when I made them last time. I made a casserole from Emeril’s site yesterday and also made a pumpkin pie. Tonight I am making Emeril’s roasted garlic dipping sauce. I’ve been craving it for a few months but it’s not the easiest recipe so I’ve been waiting for a good time.
I think I’m going back to work part-part-time in two weeks. I couldn’t handle the thought of having no check around Christmas since it was going to be unpaid time.
