This is totally normal...for us.

I have grown so accustomed to my son being in costume that I didn't even realize I was sitting across from someone wearing an eye patch until several minutes into my lunch.


In between bites, he growled, "Aaargh!"


And fittingly enough, we were having fish sticks.

Where I've Been

So, obviously, it's been a while since I posted. The explanation for the silence is pretty simple: I spent over half of the month of February with absolutely NO internet or computer. As many of you know, BJ did his final residency for his doctorate this month, so I spent a couple of weeks in Menard. Unfortunately, my parent's computer has died on them, and Menard is completely bereft of any WIFI anywhere, so my tablet was useless.

I will have to admit it was weird going so long without any connection to the internet. It felt like stepping back into the mid-90s for me. What surprised me was that I absolutely LOVED it. If I wasn't married to a gaming, technology-loving geek, I'd happily have a computer-less home.

But I am married to a geek, and the computer is as permanent a fixture in our home as our stove and fridge, so I might as well blog.   So with that in mind, here are a few of my favorite pictures of Violet doing her new favorite past time, eating.






And last but not least, those eyes!

Dressed like a "pen-cess" and playing with pirates. That's our girl!

Due to technical difficulties, I haven't posted in ages! This is coming from my tablet until my blog starts working on our computer again. I plan on posting weekly come February. But just as a quick post, I was able to capture this morning Violet's newest trick: sticking her tongue. Babies have the cutest little tongues!
