We're back in Houston after a really fast trip to Santa Fe. I'm so happy to see The Little Prince and wonder how it is that he grew so much in just the few days we were gone. Right now I'm trying to play catch up on the computer while Mr. Baby naps. He was kicking his legs and talking to me all morning.

On another celebratory note, Mr. B and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary yesterday with a quiet dinner for two at La Grigilia. Yum! How can it already be 20 years since we married?

Today I'm creating responses to emails and spending much needed time with The Little Prince. I'm a happy girl!

I'm so spoiled by getting to see The Little Prince every day. Right now it is two days and counting since I've seen him (in person) and I so miss Mr. Baby. He is beginning to smile more and more, and it just melts my heart to see his smiley face.

The pic-of-the-day was taken by Dr. Mc and shows all the baby's hair. We aren't sure when it happened, but at some point all the hair he was born with fell out and his new hair is growing in. It's all the same length and looks like he has a burr haircut, except for every once in awhile there are a few long hairs. Although you can't really see them in the picture, his eye lashes are long and blonde and his eye brows are also blonde.

Today I'm creating a clean casita. I've gone through the closets and cabinets, and am moving on to the drawers.

Yesterday was a fun day! Sweetness and I looked at two more venues. Between appointments we went to a cute bar downtown (Honeymoon) for lunch and a cocktail. After the second appointment we went to the fabric store to look at colors that she wants in her wedding. Mother and daughter bonding time is always special!

Last night we met my cousin, Susan, and her daughter, Kristy, for cocktails before going to see The Suffers play. The Suffers had a GREAT show, but I may be biased. Apparently they have a good following in Houston. The show was sold out (700 people) and there were others standing out front trying to buy tickets.

Today I'm creating a casita that is devoid of personal items. We left Houston early this morning for two days in the high desert. I promised Dr. Mc and Big Daddy that I would take care of The Little Prince the first year of his life while they are at work. (This is so important since he was born prematurely. I don't want him in daycare where he might get exposed to something that his system isn't ready to handle.) Since I'll be caring for Aulay I won't be able to spend my summer vaca in the hight desert. Mr. B and I are leasing the Pettita Casita to a retired oncologist while his new home is built outside of Santa Fe. We're here to put our personal items in the attic and take some items home with us to Houston. We'll still come to Santa Fe, but not to the casita until March 2015. It will be strange to be in Santa Fe and not be in our house, but that's the way it will be. Truthfully, I'd rather take care of Mr. Baby than be away from him for two or three months! Plus, I'll be busy helping Sweetness plan her wedding.

As much as The Little Prince would not sleep yesterday, he has been asleep this morning for three hours. I have a bottle at the ready because when he wakes up, I know he is going to be hungry.

Does anyone else cut their own hair or is it just my family? Mr B and I went to an event last night. My hair has been bothering me (as it often does) so I came home last night, changed clothes, and quickly grabbed the scissors. I went in the bathroom and cut the length my hair to chin length. As much as I want to have long hair, it just doesn't work on my head.

Today I'm creating dinner with Dr. Mc. Big Daddy is out of town the the night. Mr. B has a company function. Dr. Mc and I are bonding with Pad Thai. The Little Prince will be with us, but hasn't developed a taste for anything but formula.

The pic-of-the-day is a rare glimpse of The Little Price asleep this afternoon. He usually has a bottle around noon and plays for 30 minutes to an hour before falling asleep and staying asleep until 4-4:30 p.m. Today he has only slept for about 10 minutes and the rest of the time he has been awake and crying.
I've tried feeding him again, changing his diaper, rocking him, and walking around with him. Absolutely nothing has worked to quiet him. When he was at the doctor's office on Monday, she told Dr. Mc that she could see his teeth just below his gum line. Maybe he is in such a foul mood because he is teething?

Today I'm creating appointments for Sweetness and me to visit more wedding venues on Saturday. Hopefully one of the two we visit this weekend will suit her fancy.

The Internet was down at my client's office this afternoon so I brought The Little Prince home with me to work here. I'm sitting on the couch working and he is laying in his playard (previously known as a play pen to many of us). I can see him kicking his feet. I hear him making sweet little noises. And I see the hanging toys above him moving as he hits them with his hand. He is a happy camper!

It's supposed to rain in Houston tonight, followed by a cold front. I'm so excited for more cold weather. While many friends say they are ready for warmer weather, I'm still wanting to wear sweaters and boots.

Today I'm creating an Internet article. Reference materials are all around me so I'm glad The Little Prince is happy in his playard with his toys.

Babies come with so much gear. For our house I found an organizer that I attached to the side of his bed. I love how everything fits into little compartments. If only the rooms in my house were as organized as Aulay's gear!

I'm still in the de-cluttering mood, especially after watching several episodes of Tiny House Hunters last night. People live in spaces as small as 250 square feet. How can that be? One couple, I forget where they live, have a tiny house that they have lived in for 20 years. Amazing! I don't think I could do it because I need stuff around me, such as family photos and tons of shoes. Now you know my priorities!

Today I'm creating rewrites of a letter written by someone else. I wish the man had just given me the information and asked me to write the letter. Writing the letter from scratch would have been easier than trying to make sense of what he wrote. Jeez.
