I can see clearly now

Thursday was beautiful. The sun came out and it was unseasonably warm. More like March than January. I decided to take Edie for a big walk in the stroller but remembered at the last minute that when it's super sunny, Edie is often blinded in the stroller with no way to turn her head away. I almost delayed the walk but then remembered! Heidi and Maggie gave me some ridiculous baby sunglasses at my baby shower last year! I dug them out and she loved them.
Until she took them off and tried to eat them. Which took about 5 seconds. In the end, I opted for a blanket draped over the stroller to shield her from the sun.

Days like Thursday remind me that Spring will be here soon. Last year at this time I was so overwhelmed with morning sickness. When I think back to that time I mostly remember looking forward to 2010. And while these days I'm sometimes (okay, all the time) tired and occasionally feel a little left out when I hear that parties that I would have been invited to last year are happening that I didn't even know about this year.... life is pretty great. Even better than what I'd envisioned 12 months ago. Edie has been sleeping well this week, the sun is out, boring chicken breast by boring chicken breast my body is slowly returning to me, and I get to spend my days having dance parties to Fleetwood Mac with Edie. And the best part? I get to keep doing it. Because guess what? I quit my job.
