It is freezing out there!!! I know it's nothing like Michigan weather, but it's still freezing! It's 16 degrees out right now and supposed to be down to 7 tonight! I am already freezing my hiney off just sitting in my chair! Looks like I'll have to get another blanket out tonight!

Well, I went and officially signed up for daycare today... Kind of scary, but at least that's done! What a weight off my shoulders! I think all the things I HAD to do while on maternity leave are now done. I still have a bunch of things I want to do, like find an eye doctor and a dentist and go get checkups and new glasses (Elwood chewed mine up again like a week after I found out I was pregnant and since you aren't supposed to get new glasses while you are pregnant, I had to wait and wear the chewed up ones).

Here are some pictures and a little video clip (it's of her sleeping, so it's not exactly exciting, but I wanted to see how it worked)... Nick got me a video camera for Christmas too, so someday I will figure out how to get the videos off of it and post some more exciting ones, but this one is just from my camera.

This is a super cute picture from today. She was Miss Smiley Face until I got the camera out, then she stopped smiling... then she would start again and I would take a picture and she would quit... I think the light of the flash disturbs her so she quits smiling when she sees that light... but that's just my thoughts on it. Anyway, she was all smiley and happy and then about 2 seconds later, she was having a complete meltdown and it lasted about 20 minutes. I was trying to make dinner before that happened (which is why she was in her chair in the kitchen to begin with) and then Nick was late getting home from work, so, I didn't get dinner made (again). I was trying to make some meatloaf and I only got as far as getting the egg and burger mixed together... ugh. But I guess I won't have to mix the egg in when I finish it tomorrow! Ha!
Look at those baby blues!!! She has the prettiest blue/grey eyes right now! I think they are going to turn green/hazel like mine and Nick's because when you look at them just right, you can see a tint of a brown/green color. But who knows?? They could stay blue like Grandpa Lumsden's and Uncle Adam's!! They could also be brown like Grandpa Hietikko's and Uncle Jeremy's... I guess we'll just have to wait and see!

This is a cute picture after bath time in her cute little lamb towel from Grandma and Grandpa Hietikko. Gotta love it! Well, that's it for me. I'm off to bed on this cold night! I hope everyone is doing well and staying warm!
