She has no idea that, that doll is over 25 years old or that her name is Jewel Tetsey. Nor does she know that it's an original from the Cabbage Patch Store in NYC or the fact that her Mommy hand picked her from the store or that Nana and Grandfy waited in a long cold line to get into the store.
She has been carrying that doll around all day. For months she has been eyeing her in her closet, but I wasn't ready to pass her down. Then, today, I thought it was time. She lit up and was so excited to play with her and have her meet her other baby.
I was excited to see her play with a doll, I played with daily. It's kind of cool to see things passed down. So, I guess my mom keeping things was the right idea, and that I should probably do the same for Mary.
And...Dad, this does not mean you can bring the Barbie Dream house, circa 1980, that will have to wait.
First up, swim lessons. Henry started over at the Tom Dolan Swim school. He swims 30 mins every Saturday and he is loving it. I think he would like to be in there all day. The first picture might be one of my favorites of him.
Then on Sunday night, he lost his first tooth. We knew it was loose but to the point of where it was going to fall out. He was up watching his show and came running down to tell us his tooth was going to fall out. Charlie ended up just tugging on it and it fell right out. The tooth fairy was so not prepared for this moment. I think she may have actually borrowed money from Mary to pay Henry his $5 for his first tooth. I can't say I saw her do it, but I have a good feeling it happened.
We met with the builder last week and had our pre construction meeting. We went over Saturday and saw this.
Today we went and saw this. They dug out our house, hopefully the weather keeps sunny and they can keep working.
Can't forget this part of the whole house process. Should be listed mid March...if you know anyone looking to move into a great house and neighborhood, let me know!
To get ready for the house, we have decided to move the playroom to the back bedroom in the basement and make the playroom an office. Bye bye, Buzz blaster blue, I will miss you.
Just a cute picture of Henry and Rudy watching us paint last night.
Finally,we took Mary to the dermatologist this morning. She has had this perma zit on her face forever and her Daddy was done looking at it. It ended up being nothing, and the Doctor said he wasn't sure if it would ever go away. So, we had it frozen off. Yeah, that was entertaining. You can barely see it on her cheek, but it should fall off in a week.
That pretty much sums it all up. I won't get into her not napping and waking up for the day at 4:50am. I may be a Starbucks Venti and a Chick Fil A coke in already, but that is nothing with everything else going on. I will try to blog more, but as you can see, my time is running thin. Fun times to look forward too, gotta just keep on moving.
