Oh, hello there. Nice to see you.

Edie didn't really get sick, so apologies for the alarm. She's just getting her 16th tooth! Which, my next door neighbor -who is also a pediatrician- informs me is her last tooth until she gets her 2 year molars. So perhaps we will soon get a reprieve from teething. How nice.

More importantly though, we had a fantastic stay-cation weekend in Seattle while Edie gallivanted all over Bellingham with her Grandparents. Sadly, she decided not to sleep well while there, but happily, WE slept wonderfully. We also did some deep Spring cleaning, rode the Vespa all over town (equal parts fun and cold), went out and had drinks in one place, dinner in another and cupcakes in a third locale, and as if that wasn't enough, we also went to a movie! (Kings Speech) and slept in until nearly 10am.

Aaaand. Edie and I just bought a ticket to California!!! We leave in less than 2 weeks and I is excited. A bit nervous about flying with Edie solo, but mostly pumped. We are going to stay with Auntie Napkin (aka Katherine) in LA (and her generous roomie Kait who is going to tolerate an 18mo old ransacking the house) and we are going to do fun things in weather that is decidedly warmer than here. It is roughly 33 degrees here today. I just booked our ticket using air miles and am already thinking up excuses to buy cute Spring coats and mini skirts for Edie. Not for me. Well, maybe a coat, but definitely not a mini skirt. Anyways. Californiaaaaaaaaaaa! Here we cooooooooooome!

Have fun in California! And I totally support the skirts and coats for Edie (but it's only because then I'll be secretly hoping for hand-me-downs for Hannah). Have fun in Cali!

Uh-Um.... I totally called the tooth thing. Glad to know I still got some baby smarts.

Fun!! Remember when we went to California and stayed with Katherine? I do. Sigh.

FUN!!! I am so excited to hear about your solo travel adventures with Edie. You'll be great and yes, the So Cal weather is going to be good to you. It is a little chilly today (low sixties...don't roll your eyes at me! That's cold for us!) but so sunny and the blue skies are GORGEOUS. Yay!
