Quick Hitters

This week has been a bit of a lazy one for us. Jilly was still recovering from her cold, and I just had no energy. So there was more than one day where we both laid in bed until super late. But you could tell she was feeling better when she started destroying and coloring all over the place (see my latest Aimeeland blog). What can you expect from a 2 year old? ;-) But of course, as Jilly is getting better, Steve is coming down with her cold and has spent most of the week feeling sub-par. Poor guy.

Probably the most exciting moment of the week was the Season Premiere of LOST!!! We were so stoked about it. I think Jilly skipped her nap that day and we packed her off to bed before 9pm so we could watch in peace. It was awesome. I could go on for hours about how amazing this show is, and Steve loves it even more than I do. But we were a little weirded out by the first episode ending at 9:53pm. It didn't seem like the next episode started right away either. That was slightly annoying, but oh well. Still loved it. :-)

Another score this week was Tuesday night when my mom and I took Jilly to Gymboree to get some cute things. She had earned "Gymbucks" last month (spend $50, get $25 off during a certain time period) and I had a gift card from Jilly's birthday. So basically, we were getting $50 worth of stuff for free. Score! We found an adorable nightgown that will fit her for a looong time, as well as some bright turquoise with white polka dot leggings. We also got a couple of white undershirts, since she's outgrown onesies. This time we actually managed to bring the stroller with us (we'd forgotten the past several times we'd gone to the mall). But as always, once actually in Gymboree, Jilly insisted on being let out, so she could watch the TV. She also helped move some of the boys underwear around. Apparently, it needed to be hung in a different spot. ;-) She ran into a couple of colleagues there, who were about their same age. Once the little boy said Hi to her and she just stared at him. Then later a little girl came in, Jilly walked over to her, says Hi! and the other girl proceeds to yank the keys right out of Jilly's hands. Hahaha. It cracked me up quite a bit. We had a lot of fun with Granny. We always love Gymboree.

Jilly had her 2-year-old pictures taken at Yuen Lui last week, but since she was sick they didn't come out that great. I think we'll be getting them re-taken. Poor girl was all red-cheeked and glassy-eyed and it really showed up. The photographer did a great job getting as many shots as she did (we love Amanda at the Alderwood Yuen Lui, I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone!) but unfortunately, Jilly just wasn't all the way there and it showed. But we'll get them redone soon and they'll look great. :-)

That's pretty much all we've been up to. We hope your week is going well!
