P365: Day 90

March 31, 2010

We aren't feeling much better but I figured some fresh air would do us both good.

Maris is demonstrating that the best way to be a Cleveland sports fan is to root for the team that is NOT currently in season!

P365: Day 89

March 30, 2010

The most exciting thing to happen to us in a long time - our cable is fixed! The remote, the box, the stations and service... none of them have worked correctly in YEARS. Everything seems to be fine now. Emphasis on "now." To say we don't love our cable provider is an understatement.

Now seriously, At&t U-verse, please come to our neighborhood!!!

P365: Day 88

March 29, 2010

Pay no attention to my clothes. I repeat. Pay no attention to my clothes.

We are sick and miserable.

P365: Day 87

March 28, 2010

Today was a pajama day since both Mama and baby were sick.

P365: Day 86

March 27, 2010

Happy Birthday Johnny!

Wouldn't they always rather play with the box?

P365: Day 84

March 25, 2010


I jinxed NE Ohio by saying I thought Spring was here to stay.

P365: Day 83

March 24, 2010

Maris likes to wear her apron while she makes food and washes her dishes.

P365: Day 82

March 23, 2010

I find deflating balloons completely disturbing. Up on the ceiling? Fun! Down on the floor? Festive! But floating in the middle of the room?

P365: Day 81

March 22, 2010

It was awful and cold and rainy and windy today.

So we went to the pool! :)

P365: Day 80

March 21, 2010

Maris had another play date today. This time the friends came to her house!

P365: Day 79

March 20, 2010

Happy First Day of Spring!
(Though we all know Spring doesn't actually start until April 4th and not in Cleveland until April 12th. 56 brownie points to you if you can tell me why!!!)

Maris had a play-date today. Here she is playing with her friend, Colton. She is holding her hand over a sticker that one of the other boys kept taking off her shirt. It was his sticker after all! She played while protecting that sticker for quite awhile!

P365: Day 78

March 19, 2010

We don't have Maris watch too much TV. Every once in awhile before bed she gets to pick two Elmo (or whatever she happens to like that day) videos on the computer. She also likes to watch Aly and AJ's version of Jingle Bell Rock and Hillbilly Bone by Blake Shelton.

P365: Day 77

March 18, 2010

She really had the waves going in her "pool" tonight.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

P365: Day 75

March 16, 2010

When I was little* my favorite TV show was Little House on the Prairie. I loved snow days, sick days, and summer vacation for one reason and one reason alone. I got to watch the TBS back to back episodes of LHotP. When I grew up I found a new show to love - LOST. I've watched it from the very first eye popping open.

Tonight my two favorite shows collided when Sawyer from LOST was watching Laura and Pa discuss the depths of love and friendship. It moved me.

* Little = less than 31 years of age**
** I am 30 years of age. I still love the show and watch it if I happen on it during channel surfing.

P365: Day 74

March 15, 2010

Sarah hands the camera to Johnny.
Sarah: Here take a picture of my new hair cut.
Johnny: Okay, just make a Zoolander face.
Johnny: Don't pucker so much.
Johnny: I said less pucker.
Johnny: Turn sideways, leave your head there, but turn your face.
Sarah: Huh?
Johnny: Now why are you laughing?

P365: Day 73

March 14, 2010

Maris loves bath time!

May I offer some parenting advice? If you don't give your children the frilly, unnecessary, and often expensive "extras" they will not become hooked on them. It only took one colored bath tablet to initiate squeals of "Pink bathie!!!!!" everyday at bed/bath time. I expect it to continue for the foreseeable future. Here we are featuring purple.

P365: Day 72

March 13, 2010

Today, Maris found her Hillbilly Bone. She also yells "Yee-haw!" and "Awesome!" in this video.

P365: Day 71

March 12, 2010

Another walk today! I'm pretty sure all this nice weather means it will snow until June, but it was nice to be outside for so many days in a row!

We went to the park to swing. Maris spent most of the 2 minutes she actually stayed in the swing saying, "Out Mama!"

P365: Day 70

March 11, 2010

The beautiful weather continues. I think the temperatures were near 70 today! We went for a long walk. When we got home, I told Maris it was time to go in the house for lunch. She replied by pulling her sunshade down and tucking her feet in.

P365: Day 69

March 10, 2010

Midnight came before I knew it. No picture today. :(

P365: Day 68

March 9, 2010

We've had gorgeous weather the past few days. We took Maris to the zoo today. We have lot of fun pictures, but this one is my favorite. There are two monkeys on that limb and they have their tails entwined. So sweet!

P365: Day 67

March 8, 2010

I am a little obsessed with the Census. I don't know why. Perhaps those stellar TV commercials? No. Anyway, imagine my ellation upon finding an envelope marked "Census 2010" in my mailbox. Imagine my disdain when it was not the actual Census but mearly a letter reminding me that when I DO get the Census I should fill it out. The government is a tease.

P365: Day 64

March 5, 2010

Maris was feeling congested so we broke out the humidifier for only the second time since she was born. We're proud of that! :)

(We do not still have Christmas decorations out. I think M would throw a grade A temper tantrum if we upset her bedtime routine which include - turning on the fiber optic snowman while the snowman music box plays.)

P365: Day 66

March 7, 2010

A good friend from college is having a baby in April. I had fun at her shower today! She scored some great baby loot!!!

Oh and if you like stamping you might like her blog!

P365: Day 65

March 6, 2010

I (and by "I", I mean Johnny) took apart the Dyson today and cleaned it. The recommended cleaning schedule is every six months. I will not tell you how long we have owned it or how many times I have cleaned it. You can probably look at it and guess. I'm surprised the Dyson people didn't knock on my door the next day and repo the darn thing. It's beautiful and sparkly clean now.

P365: Day 63

March 4, 2010

We pulled out the toddler paints for the first time tonight. As you can see, Maris got it everywhere she could including, but not limited to the paper, the floor, her shirt, her arms, legs, fingers, and face.

It goes without saying she had fun!

P365: Day 62

March 3, 2010.

It was one of those days.

Ironically enough, I was pouting because I hadn't taken my picture of the day yet and couldn't think of anything to photograph.

P365: Day 61

March 2, 2010

Maris is singing Happy Birthday to her cousin, Savannah.

P365: Day 60

March 1, 2010

I am officially a SAHM (Stay At Home Mom). Today I turned in my resignation to my old school district.
