For our anniversary, some wonderful people watched Savannah for the evening while Paul and I got a chance to see a movie! Movies are one thing that are just hard to do with a baby. We went to see Toy Story 3 and enjoyed it very much. I did think it was a little on the scary side, though – are all those types of movies that scary, or do kids just not notice that? I guess I do remember getting scared by Disney movies when I was a kid, like The Little Mermaid and Mickey’s Christmas Carol (which has forever ruined that story for me – I still get chills when I think about the Ghost of Christmas Future! *shiver*).
Savannah did great with the Garrisons while we were gone! They took a video of her current mode of travel – scootching!
So, needless to say, she has gotten more mobile in the last week or so! She’s still not very fast, but I am having to start thinking about babyproofing more. One morning, I set her down on the floor of my room and fell asleep on the bed. I woke up to see her in the hallway, sitting at the top step looking down! Phew, talk about waking up fast. I went out and bought some baby gates and things for the kitchen cabinets. :-)
Today Savannah found the cat bowls. She tasted the cat food and happily splashed in the water bowl until it was empty, and then she proceeded to pick up said bowl and bang it against the floor. :-) It was cute.
I also started scrapbooking her first year. I have never really scrapbooked before, so this is a new experience for me. I have pictures from the first 11 months all ready to be placed on the pages, and I am also going to include the monthly letters. It’s a bit daunting/overwhelming, I think. I am much more comfortable designing on the computer where I do “undo” when I don’t like it. I have definitely enjoyed walking through the scrapbooking section of various craft stores, and I look forward to implementing the ideas I have so far. I need to do at least 5 pages a day to make my goal of getting this done before her birthday, and today I did 10 so I think I’m doing pretty good… Now to just keep it up!
While scrapbooking, I’ve been watching TV. For our anniversary, I got Paul season 2 of Leverage. I love that show! One thing I like about the DVDs are the commentaries for every episode. They are entertaining to watch, and really make the episode come more alive. I never realized how much effort they put into the details of the show. I am glad to hear it was renewed for a 4th season. I really, really miss having TNT and being able to watch it live! Actually, I really, really miss having cable in general.
So I might be scarce the next few weeks while I try and get this scrapbooking thing done. I have contemplated taking a break from the Internet in general while I try to get a handle on everything else going on in life (like our house), but I never seem to be able to actually cut myself off. I’ve been thinking about it for a while now, so maybe this project will be a forced break for me.
I hope everyone else is doing well.
