let down.

if you were spending time reading around here in 2012 you may remember this post about the inspiring bea johnson.

well, today matteo and i went to whole foods armed with our mesh bags and glass jars.
we filled them with dried fruit, pickles, bread, and fruits only to arrive at checkout to a friendly clerk alerting me that the colorado health department is no longer allowing people to shop with their own reusable glass jars and that the mesh bags can only be used in the produce section not the bulk bins.
i'm really disappointed.
let's be honest, a typical trip to a grocery store can yield SO MUCH GARBAGE in the form of packaging.
i think i'm going to have to try to reuse the offered baggies and packaging at these stores from now on.


baby #3.

we are expecting baby number three this summer...mid july to be "exact".
due to my age (now 37) we opted for the extra testing early on in pregnancy and therefore already know the baby's sex.
so far baby is healthy.
any guesses?
a girl!
we are all surprised and thrilled.
her name is blythe cora.


it's a new dawn.

so...our laptop from 2008 just wasn't quite cutting it anymore.
i would turn the thing on and wait and wait and wait as it processed every little thing i asked of it.
but, i had a birthday this past week and now have a new-used laptop, so i hope you'll be seeing more of me/us here.
how have you been?


and december begins.

we started december with gingerbread house building,
then a visit to santa's read aloud at the local toy shop, 
and finished the day attacking said gingerbread house.
let the holiday season begin!


23 months old.

items of note:
matteo waves goodbye while reaching his hand as high above his head as he can.
he calls all food/meals/desire to eat: "lunch".
he asks us to follow him by saying, "come" and reaching out a hand upturned for us to follow.
if we ask where we are going the answer is usually "kitchen".
matteo's putting words together into short phrases instead of speaking in only one word sentences.
he likes to draw colorful scribbly circular pictures.
we recently converted his crib to the toddler bed and he usually gets cozy and settles right in.
