Time for a new baby purchase

Tomorrow, I buy a high chair, thanks to Mom (that'd be Grandma to Kiki!) I'm excited! I can't wait for lunch tomorrow. Yay!

Speaking of our latest obsession -- food -- we've pretty much nailed down what she likes to eat. That would be cereal, carrots, and sweet potatoes. The list that makes her make faces: bananas, apples, peaches, pears, squash. The list that makes her purse her lips and refuse to open: green beans and peas. Just like mama; a carb freak who hates fruit.

So I figure I'll indulge her betacarotene cravings and turn her orange for Halloween.

Speaking of which, we were at Target comparison shopping for high chairs and they have the cutest sleeper-type costumes. I favor the Tigger; Kipp's angling for the pink hamster. I'm not sure why. He likes the monkey best, but it wasn't in Kiki's size... well, actually, therein lies the true problem. We couldn't figure out if the 3m was too small and the 6m was too big -- she's like somewhere in the middle. And Halloween is like 5 weeks away, which is astronomically far away in terms of baby growth. So we had to put off the actual buying until, I don't know, October 30th at midnight or something.

We're planning on taking the kids to the zoo for Halloween. We did that last year -- or was it the year before? I'm not sure which, but it was good fun. Crazy full of people, but good fun. You know, the town I live in isn't huge, especially not by Silicon Valley standards, but I get all nostalgic when every denizen within a 50 mile radius converges on one location at one time. It reminds me of rush hour on 101 and Saturday at noon at Costco, all at the same time.

I thought winter was descending there for a bit, but it's warmed up again. Dammit. I'm tired of having to pay someone to mow the lawn. I want the cold back! I want the lawn to go to sleeeeeeep already. Stupid lawn.

Kiki's now slinging a rattle around like a pro. Well, okay, she's a little uncoordinated, and it ends up bash! hitting her in the head bash! mama's glasses bash! her own eye bash! mama's nose... and so on and so on. But I love it. I'm so happy to see her using her arms!! Her PT has been commenting on the laxity of her shoulders. Everything else is strong and active, but her arms and shoulders need some devoted attention.

Well, I'm off to dream about high chairs. Toodles!
