Spring Has Sprung

Yup, Spring has sprung. It's 70o outside today, bright sunshine, and we have a robin building a nest in our weeping cherry. I'm not so sure about the mental status of the robin as he's building this nest out of what appears to be typewriter ribbon, but he looks happy, so, OK.

We've spent a lot of time outside in the last couple of days, and I've realized that sometime over the winter the great big doggie reached some milestones. He can reach the mailbox and take out the mail without being lifted up first. He can turn the hose nozzle on and off by himself and thereby spray the driveway to his heart's content - the lack of this skill was the source of much frustration last year. And finally, he can pedal his own trike and go all the way around the block without tiring. Don't tell Leonard, but he's looking more and more like a big boy these days despite his certainty that he is a dog.

No baby yet! We're all getting bored and tired of waiting, but it's hard to be too cranky with weather like this. The only fly in the ointment is that supposedly there is a snow/freezing rain/sleet storm "mixed precipitation event" looming on the horizon for Friday night, but I guess that's par for the course for March. I saw some daffodils in bloom today, so now I'm willing to bet that we're due for more and more warm weather in the next few weeks.

I think it's time for nice Spring nap...aaaahhhhhh!

Bonus Cute Conversation:

Gran-Gran: "Can we put my shirt in the washer?"

Liam: "Yup, we can!"

Gran-Gran: "Can we put your big boy underwear in the washer?"

Liam: "Yup, sure we can!"

Me: "Can we put your dump truck shirt in the washer?"

Liam: "Yup, we can!"

Me (teasing): "Can we put Casey in the washer?"

Liam: "Um, no. He's too big and the lid wouldn't close."

Gran-Gran: "You need to blog this."

  • When I saw that your blog had updated in Bloglines, I thought that baby had arrived! Ah, the fun end of pregnancy waiting! Hope that baby comes soon!

    It's warm here today too (80-ish!), but we're getting another cold snap this weekend with highs only in the 40s. Enjoy the warmth while it's here!!

    And, what a big boy/doggie you've got over there! So much fun!

  • I have been having so much fun watching that little ticker tick down. 1 day left! Wow! (Of course, we all know that doesn't really mean anything, but it's still fun.) I hope the next few days are full of as much relaxing and "enjoying" as possible. :)

  • Hey, Little Guy has a Gran-Gran, too, but it's his grandfather. Can't wait to hear your baby news soon so I'm not the only one up at 3:00 am checking email with an 11-day-old.
