My little girl

Amelia at 9 months old My little girl will no longer be a baby soon. In less than 3 months I will have a toddler. She is growing up so fast. This weekend we went shopping for clothes and it was sort of sad when I realized we were shopping in the toddler section instead of the baby section. She just about fits into 12 month clothes, so we buy those to make them last longer. We did get her some adorable outfits, jean shorts and shirts that are just darling. I will have to get some pictures of her sporting her new attire and post it to the web.

Her great-aunt sent her a bathing suit and we have yet to try it on her. I wanted to do that this weekend, but we didn’t get a chance. I have to get off my butt and get out there and clean her pools out. They are gross and filthy from sitting outside all the time.

This weekend, I’ll be in Atlanta. I know DH isn’t going to get out there and clean her pool, so she won’t be going swimming till maybe the weekend after. I am making it a goal of mine that if we don’t have any other plans I will clean out her pool and let her go swimming that weekend.

Cooking Fish

I cooked fish for the first time a few nights ago. I never had before because I didn’t know how and was afraid. Lame, I know. But while my in-laws were here, MIL cooked some Tilapia and explained how she normally cooks it.

So I tried it the other night. I pan fried it in a little bit of olive oil after seasoning it with lemon juice and Old Bay Seasoning. It was so good, I ate two whole fillets and that’s a lot for me. I was so proud of myself. It was delicious. And now I’m not afraid anymore, so I’ll be able to add fish to our collection of dinner dishes. Next time I need to learn to fry some catfish.

The Final Year Begins for Me

I’m finally reading it: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows! Woohoo! My collection is in paperback, so I don’t purchase the hardback version. I’ve been somewhat patiently waiting for my co-worker to finish reading it (she pre-ordered it) so I could borrow it and read it. She finished it this weekend and has handed it over. Hurray, hurray!


Amelia was clapping this morning! All by herself! I’ve been trying to get her to clap for a while now and she finally did it. I’m so excited! It’s so cute!
