Just what you’ve always wanted out of a blog on a Sunday night – 15 random things – now with pictures (that in most likely no way correlate to the random things)! – I’ve had my eyes checked twice since having Ariadne, and both times have resulted in crazy eyesight changes. My eye doc tells […]
We’ve been taking Aria to the park lately. It’s been nice outside. Let me rephrase: It’s been that strange stage between being cold and being ungodly hot. Most people call it the 75-85degree temperature range. I consider it too hot, 70 is more to my liking. But for most, it’s been perfect for going […]

She really seemed to enjoy watching it, and it wasn’t ridiculously annoying for us grown ups – although I won’t be disappointed if she never takes to the “diaper […]
