the perfect birthday

My birthday:

1. Woke up at the delightful hour of 9 o'clock (thanks to my sweet man who whisked the Gig aways when she began her daily vocalizations at 6am)

2. Eggs on toast

3. Deep tissue massage: 90 minutes working the kinks out that have been around since I was pregnant (I think I've been storing some major birth-memories in my gluts).

4. Sushi at Takashi (while my sis watched the babe)

5. Play at Pioneer theater

6. Opened present: brand new beautiful snow shoes

7. End of the day: Cozying-up on the couch with my man, while Gigi slept

I found these pictures Matt took yesterday on the desktop in a folder entitled "green morning." He had named the pictures as follows:



that pretty much sums it up

rat race

The other day, after two crazy work days, dropping and picking the Gig up from the babysitter's, and dropping off and picking up each other from work, Matt commented that we had officially entered the "rat race" of parenthood. The last two weeks have been a little harried. From the babysitters to work to the gym, I've been so exhausted, and of course the Gig doesn't sleep through the night! The house is in disarray and laundry is piling up, but overall it isn't so bad now that we are getting a little used to the pace. It definitely isn't dull. My favorite time is at night when the Gig watches us make dinner in her seat and then after dinner we see who can make her giggle for the longest stretch (Matt always wins).

Here are two pictures Matt took while we were in NYC that I love:

Dreams are going so cheap right now.
