"Never forget who you are, little star ..."

Is everybody ready for their nice, long, three-day weekend? I'm just hoping I can get something productive done, instead of letting the old procrastination thing win, once again.

Look who is sitting up, all by herself, these days!

Papa's hand is back there just for show ... she really can sit up and play with her toys. See?

I know I'm all about the babeh pictures these days ... but I have to show you a couple more. (All of these were taken yesterday, by the way.)

After I picked her up at daycare yesterday, we came in and sat in the rocker to catch up with each other. Emilie soon called to say hello, during her lunch break. I put her on speaker phone so that they could talk to each other, and so that Emilie could cry a little. (MAN, she misses that baby!)

Well, after a bit, the Sweetness started chewing on her "caterpillar" ... a toy she's had over here since Day One. She sank lower and lower, until her head was on my arm. I looked at her and smiled ... she smiled back, her eyes rolled around a couple of times, and CONK. She was out like a light, still hanging on to the bug. Of course I had to snap a picture:

If THAT doesn't melt your heart, you've got problems.

"Remember to always think twice ..."

Count me in among the David Cook Fans. I thought all along that little David Archuleta would be crowned the new Miss American Idol. And that was OK with me, since he was deserving. (And cute as a buginarug.) I knew that David Cook would end up with a nice, fat recording deal anyway ... and not be tied to the AI bigwigs in the process. Hell, if it could happen for Clay Aiken, surely someone as talented as Cook would be a star, even without the crown.

But in the end, Cook won. Now my hope is that the big American Idol machine doesn't kill his career before he gets started.

Because I lurrve him.

"For Emilie, whenever I may find her ..."

Yeah, I know. Simon and Garfunkle spelled Emily with a Y.
But this is my blog. And my Emilie, too.

Not a lot of time today ... but I wanted to post these new pictures of Miss Squishy for her Auntie Em, who I know is missing her some babylove this week.

Em's move to NC went about as smooth as it could possibly go ... and she's hopefully "enjoying" her first week at work as I type this. I miss her, that goes without saying. But knowing that she's where she wants to be, and happy ... well, that goes a long way towards a Mama's happiness.
Without further ado, here are a few pictures from my weekly "Afternoon Of Love" with the Squishy One :

(Emilie, stop crying! I know you are. Now stop ... and smile over the fact that you have such a beautiful niece who will love you forever!)
