actually a week and a half, but it sure seemed longer than that! That's how long we've been without our computer, and it's pretty pitiful how much we rely on this piece of technology. I've been wanting to pull my hair out at times, actually.
Soooo here's what we've been up to.
We bought Aspen a booster seat to replace her high chair and it's one of the best purchases we've made! It's so much easier to have her at the table with us, and she enjoys that. I just hated having that huge high chair take up so much space in our kitchen.
I've got scabs on my face because Aspen's in a phase where she grabs your face and squeezes it between her sharp claws. Also, she wants to feed herself now, so instead of mashing up her veggies I just give them to her cooked (at which point she mashes them with her hands while trying to rub them into the table).
This past weekend we went down to Philadelphia to celebrate my birthday. It was great! Eric and I are reading John Adams by David McCullough (a great read) and wanted to see where Adams spent all his time while in Philly.
This is Independence Hall, where the Declaration and Constitution were signed, and below is us outside.
Below is us in front of the Liberty Bell.
This is one of Edgar Allen Poe's homes, and boy was it creepy! We went inside and I'll never be the same again. It was almost as if you could feel in the walls the sadness that Poe felt while he was living there.
Speaking of sadness...I've been 30 for a week! More on this later....
