Well, we've been back about two and a half weeks now and Jinx has been sick twice, this second time requiring antibiotics. Needless to say, she's not the only one who's been in a bad mood around here.
One thing I find I'd miscalculated is just how much laundry one has to do when one has children. Naively I had thought, " Oh, you just have her extra laundry to do in addition to your usual amount of laundry you did before she came along".
No, no, no......having a baby means doing her laundry, which is at least two or three changes a day (especially if she's projectile vomiting like she's been doing lately), ON TOP OF all of the changes of clothes you need for yourself being the recipient of those projectiles, and the endless, towels, and sheet changes that go along with the rest. There is no time that I move from one floor of the house to the other that I'm not carying some article of clothing either to be washed or put away.

The illnesses aside, having Jinx around has been more than we could have ever imagined. She is just so much fun. Never one to want to stay home and hang out, she's always on the move- her favorite haunt being the grocery store. The minute I set her into the carriage she starts to shriek with joy as we move through the supermarket. She just loves it!

Her other all-time favorite activity is admiring herself in the mirror- Whenever she's down all we have to do is walk her by a mirror and if she as much as catches a glimpse of herself a huge grin comes over her face. Ahh that I were so enamored with my own image.
