I almost took a picture of the sunrise this morning... but didn't have the energy to stand up from the love sac, where I was lying with Sophia... as it was much earlier than I like to "stand up" at all. I could swear she JUST got over a cold, but now she's got a brand new barking cough. Why can't one cold just exempt them from the rest. Like, they've done their time, they should be able to be healthy for a while! So needless to say, she was up before the crack of dawn... now that dawn happens a little later I guess. 5:30 or so. Poopy diaper which is totally out of routine, and hacking cough. So we hung in the love sac and watched our friends, the Little Einsteins. I really did see a beautiful sunrise out the window a while later and think, "I should take a picture of that." Now I realize why it was extra pink, we have CLOUDS today! (Hence the seemingly unexciting picture.)
Blogging has connected me to lots of long distance friends I didn't keep in touch with before. This means we are all made aware of the different circumstances in which we live. Weather- being a big one. Some of us are cooped up in the winter hiding from snow and freezing temperatures and awaiting a blue skied, sunshiney day. Some of us, on the other hand, myself included, enjoy blue skied, shineshiney days all winter, and then SUFFER (no sarcasm involved here) through blue skies and sunshiney days in the summer. The sky never changes, but the temperatures do. This past weekend already broke 100. The sunshine is not so welcome when it zaps all energy and turns your and your daughter's face into a sweaty tomato. SO- my point with all of that? Today looks like it's going to be a cloudy day! At least part of it. And that is really, really good news. Good enough to make up for the 5:30 start to the day.
So the weekend was an especially fun one. We had our friends Lindsay and Wes from Vegas come down and stay with us for the Pacific Life Open Tennis Tournament. Lindsay and I were in the same major at BYU and worked in the same group in our big capstone class and so spent quite a bit of time together. Luckily she was one that made working into the wee hours of the night fun. Good company. So of course we love that they only live a few hours away (that's right, there's a short cut to Vegas from here that's just over 3 hours.) They're pregnant with their first right now, and just found out (with 90% assurity) that it's a BOY! It was fun to see her with her barely there bump. Congrats Linds and Wes!
I am ashamed of both of us since we each have blogs and neither of us managed to take a picture together. Lindsay put a super cute one of Sophia on her blog, and all I really got was one of Sophia playing football with Wes. It will have to do, just so I can prove they were really here.
18 month shots today. Yuck. We'll see if they still want to do them even though she's getting sick. I HATE shots and feel the WORST empathy watching my little girl get pricked. Yuck. Did I already say that? Yuck.
