How in the world is it December already? I guess that means I need to go dig the Christmas tree out of storage and figure out where it might fit in our apartment. It didn’t seem so huge in our house but it will take up significant space here.

Blog World was a little quiet this weekend after NaBloPoMo ended. I guess everyone was enjoying a weekend off. My weekend was very quiet. I watched a lot of bad movies on TV and read. I didn’t even touch a computer from Friday evening until Sunday afternoon. Call me potato. I was so sedentary that by last night I couldn’t stand it anymore and had to go work out. Normally I don’t enjoy exercise – I do it because I should not because it makes me feel good (I really am a potato at heart) – but it actually felt good yesterday to get moving after being a lump for 2 days.

Miss Sabrina walks a little more each day. She is starting to make me nervous because she is learning to open cabinet doors and wants to investigate. Our cabinets don’t have pull handles or knobs on them so I can’t get the child locks that go over the hardware and since we are in an apartment, I really would rather not install safety locks inside the cabinets. So I either need to move things or never let the child out of my sight.


We also tried the Christmas card photo shoot again with mixed results. She immediately started to cry again but I managed to get a couple of smiles when I brought out her favorite singing stuffed animal. I’ll share the photo we are going to use after I’ve sent the cards out (friends and family need some surprises…it is hard to have conversations when they have already heard everything going on in my life because I’ve blogged it!)

    You’re right! The internet was so quite this weekend. Everyone is Nablopomoed out. We had crappy weather here in Chicago so I was stuck home and had nothing to read online since everyone was obviously boycotting their blogs!

    That child is just beautiful!! Alex also likes to explore the cabinets. For the most part, we let him. He’s gotten really good at knowing what he can play with and what he shouldn’t….but he’s also usually in my sight the whole time.

    Glad you had a relaxing weekend.

    As far as the kid proofing thing goes – Emma has figured out how to open the cabinets (some of them), even though the safety latch thingie is on them. I will say, like Kim mentions above, Emma also has gotten pretty good at knowing what is ok and what is a “bad choice”.
