RTT: Button, button, who's got a button?


I made a button for my blog. God, it's ugly. Fugly, really. But at least I finally did it. I've been telling myself I was going to do this for, like, weeks. Maybe even a month. And last night I finally did it. Patience is obviously not something I had a lot of at the time. The truly sad thing is that it actually took me like 45 minutes to make it. Go check it out on my sidebar. Or maybe not. I'd hate for you to go all blind and shit when the fugliness burns your retinas right out of your skull.

This is going to be a very busy week. Actually, make that a busy month. My summer coaching duties always begin in June. We host a week of middle school camp, then have a week of spring practice, and close the month with a week of a pretty intense camp for the girls. That's just June. After that I've got to coach summer league one night a week and hopefully make it to open gym once a week as well until the end of July. This is all normally no problem, but now there's a BABY mixed into the equation. That means finding babysitters for all of these days and evenings. Luckily we've got a good chunk of willing victims family around who are more than happy to watch Baby Bano for a couple of hours. They're all still under her spell because they don't live with her. (Okay, okay, I'm still under her spell, too.)

I haven't showered since Saturday. Even I am grossed out by this. Once BB falls asleep, I plan on using every ounce of hot water in the house to remedy the situation.

In case you didn't catch my last post, BB has discovered her hands and feet. If you ask her, she'll tell you that They. Are. AMAZING. She is absolutely fascinated, especially by her feet. Her left leg is sticking straight up in the air right now and she is STARING at her foot. (How the hell does she do that? It's like advanced pilates or something.) Her hands (fists) get shoved into her mouth at any and every chance. Apparently they are a delicious snack. (Tastes like chicken!) She gets all cross-eyed looking at them when they are right in front of her face.  Apparently it's pretty normal--the eye thing--but it sure freaked my shit out the first few times she did it. Mr. Clean had some "eye issues" when he was born and I've been paranoid as hell that BB will inherit them. It's quite a sight, really: eyes all jacked up, shoving her fists into her mouth with one leg in the air while speaking in tongues. "Yep, that's my kid! Isn't she talented?"

That's all the random I've got. Hop on over and visit the UnMom if you've got time and want a good laugh.

Wait until she figures out she is making those hand move. And can get that foot in to her mouth--toes are quite the delicacy for babies.

And she's multi-tasking as well…

How very talented indeed. Love how she can speak and have her hand in her mouth (she must be saying Tastes like chicken).

Thank you for your randomness,

John's mom had some eye drama too when she was younger. Sprite's Christmas picture when she was a month only heightened my fear that she would have the same problems. Nope, grew out of it by the third month. Now, NOTHING escapes her attention..

I had a good laugh over that last visual of BB...too funny.

Neil had a lazy eye that required surgery as a kid, so we were pretty freaked out by our daughter's eyes for the longest time too. Someone should let new parents what to expect...there are enough things to worry about...like how the hell we can get a shower!

Good luck with your busy coaching schedule...I'm impressed already. There are some days that I don't even get dressed!
