Why Is This Post All About Clothes??

Is it Wednesday?  I couldn't tell over the sound of me sweating my butt off!  It has been very hot this week, but the weather report says it will be in the 50's this weekend.  There is a certain irony in the fact that the weather has been amazing over this Easter weekend.  The irony exists for me because I had to work on Thursday and Monday to make up for the days when we had the Snowpocalypse.  Luckily, I still had Friday off and the day care was closed then and on Monday.  On Monday, my in-laws babysat for us, but on Friday, I got to spend the whole day with my angel!

She slept in a little so by 10 o'clock, I had her up, dressed and ready to go.  We went over to the local park, which happens to have a track around the outside.  I dressed Harper in layers and off we went.  We walked for about an hour, with the stroller, we went about 3 miles.  There were tons of people out, admiring how gorgeous my daughter is.

About 3 minutes into our walk, I stripped her outer layer off and we walked in her onesie.  After our walk, we went over to the mall and I bought her tons of outfits, which were on sale.  In spite of the sale, I bought enough clothes to send my bank balance into double digits.  Regardless, it's an expense that I gladly pay.  I try very hard to keep her out of pink.  She looks better in other colors anyway...

After the mall, we went home and napped.  It was a great day and makes me look forward to the summer even more!  On Saturday, Sara and I had a date night.  We went to dinner at a nice restaurant in town and saw Stomp and the local theater.  It was a great night.

On Sunday, we went to my in-laws for dinner and some relaxation.  Since they were going to watch Harper on Monday, she stayed with them for the night.  When we left without her, I took several tools from my father-in-law.  Not a great trade, but I think a fair one...

Yesterday, I dressed her in one of her new outfits for day care.
Look how cute she looks in blue!

When I got home from work last night, she had, apparently, thrown up all over this nice outfit and so Sara had put her in something else.  When I arrived at the house, however, no one was home.  They went for a walk without me!

In revenge, I used my new tools to tear a dead bush out of the ground at the top of the property.  I didn't even change out of my work clothes!  It was liberating!

This morning, I could not for the life of me figure out how Sara organized all of the clothes that I brought home for Harper and, as a result, could not find any matching outfits at all.  I put her one of the outfits that was a single piece.

That green thing is a toy that Sara bought for her a few weeks ago.  It's a little dinosaur/dragon thing that goes "BLEH" when you squeeze it.  It's adorable and quickly becoming her favorite toy.  She hasn't been able to figure out to squeeze it yet, but she loves holding it and trying to eat the plastic part that lets you hang it from something.



On a totally unrelated note, has anyone used, or heard of anyone using this "Your Baby Can Read" program?  I'm not currently downloading an illegal copy to try...

On the same unrelated note, let me know how it works out so I can start writing to her directly.

Kay likes Harper's name.

Just another thought. This seemed kind of forced. It was not as a good read as other posts you have made. Harper is ADORABLE and I am not just saying the to be nice like you do to some people's kids that are butt ugly. Like that Seinfeld episode, where they "had to see the baby". That baby was so ugly, but like my kids, Harper is so cute. Pictures are awesome. Did you get a chance to see my Easter pictures on facebook?

Ski, I agree with you. Work has sort of drained my creative energy lately. I hope the next one will be better.

Work can be a real drain. Sometimes I wish I could work from home. I really want to start an online tutoring kind of business. Maybe continue teaching for a while longer and figure this out some how. Maybe finish my masters and finish grad school so I can teach at the college level. I don't know. I am just rambling.

Can Harper read yet?

Dave, I hope you like my newest post. It's a little long though.
