Rip Into It!
She was really flailing around in this picture.
Almost like she's trying to fight with it.
It's going to be a busy week; I've got to get my 'to do' list worked up (possibly on Sunday) so that I can get everything done. Amongst other things, I have some electrical work to do, some crawling around in the attic (for an inspection), cleaning, recycling (scrap and metals, for which I get paid), mowing the lawn, and ultimately next weekend to cut a hole in the basement floor (and dig a hole below the concrete floor) and a doorway into the cistern.
There are other things going on as well (I've got various things already scheduled for Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday), so I need to write all these things down and figure out where to stick them so that they'll get done.
But anyway, it was good to be done with work today, because I managed to finish what I was working on so I don't have any loose ends for that particular project hanging out there when I come back. It meant I had to stay later than I wanted to, but it was either stay until 5 and get it done or leave early (as most in the building did) to come back in a week's time to figure out where I'd left off. I chose the former, because it will ultimately be easier.
On a random side note, I forgot to mention yesterday that Kirstin is officially 24 3/8" long and weighs 12 pounds, 15 ounces. She got measured up yesterday, so she's most definitely growing. It's really been neat to watch her the last week or so, because she's really learning how to do some basic critical things. She was able to basically roll from her back to her tummy today, although it wasn't a complete roll as she hasn't figured out that in order to lay flat on her tummy, she must pull one arm out from underneath her. Regardless, she's finally figured out how to gain that little bit of inertia to get her past that point of no return where she's more on her front than her back or side. So that's cool.
I also got to see her take the pacifier from me (when I held it near her hand), then immediately bring it to her mouth where she started sucking on it and removed her hand (let go) once satisfied it was in place. So that's cool, too, the fact that she's figured out how her hands work (in a basic sense).
Anyway, it's been a busy day today and I'm sure tomorrow will be filled with activity as well, so I'm going to call it an evening and bid thee adieu. Until next time...
