Today I went to a yoga class for the first time. I took Rachel, so I really only got in about 30 minutes of uninterrupted exercise. For the last 30 minutes I tried to feed Rachel and juggle her while I did the warrior pose (or whatever it was). The instructor warned me that my wrists would hurt afterwards. You know, she was right. Still, I think I’ll keep it up. Rachel will grow into it, and in the meantime I can ease into it myself.
This afternoon I gave Scout a bath. I can’t say he loves bath-time, but he is fairly cooperative. What was really entertaining was watching him dry himself off afterwards. He definitely understands the purpose of a towel. All I had to do was toss it on the floor and he rolled and rolled and rolled and twisted and turned on that towel.
Then I tried to brush him. He is less cooperative about brushing. I had to cut a few clumps of knotted up hair on his ears. That is the only place the groomer leaves his hair long. I suppose it is because he doesn’t hold his head still very well, even when I am holding a sharp object next to his head (namely scissors).
Jeff has been fighting a cold for the past week and a half. Nothing life-threatening, just keeping him feeling bad. Today he finally went to the doctor. He decided to stay home for the rest of the day. He laid down on our (extremely comfortable) sofa in the basement with Rachel and took a nap. Is that not the sweetest thing you ever saw?
On Sunday I took a couple of pictures of Rachel in a beautiful dress that she got from Heather Toombs and Holly Casos. I don’t like to brag about my kid, but she was the cutest thing at church! In one of the pictures I managed to get a smile, but of course the picture was blurry. Too bad! I’m going to post it anyway.
