During our crafting sesh yesterday, Julia and I made friendship bracelets using this clever tutorial
well, Julia opted to do a little fashion throwback and rock hers as an anklet so I guess we made branklets
this is a totally baby friendly activity as Julia managed to only ingest the recommended serving of two diamonds and had no problem manipulating the thread with her slender phalanges
so there is that
and now as an exciting filler I will provide you with a list of of Julia's most recent snacks:
teeny fingernail clipper parts from the carcass of a clipper she dismantled
dog food (always)
my razor (equal parts gross and scary and fingernails on chalkboard just typing)
the corner of the very tall door frame she managed to dislodge in it's entirety
the toilet seat
a large gulp of shampoo
yes. yawn away.
On a quest to meet people here in St. Louis, we ventured downtown to the Basilica last night to a Mass for Catholic doctors. Unfortunately, we made up 3/8 of the congregation (literally...we are three and there were eight people total....priest included) but rallied from our disappointment and went to Five Guys with one of Simon's fellow interns who told me about a delivery from earlier that day. Apparently it was the lady's 10th baby and when she stood up from her hospital bed the 8 pound baby just sort of...fell out...the husband luckily caught the head in time with a t-shirt and the mom and babe were just fine post delivery ... so ... all was well there.
I know you wish I had more love to share but I'll end here with the promise of more mediocrity tomorrow or maybe later today.
