Happy belated Easter, everyone! We have had good couple weeks, and an whirlwind Easter holiday. There is not much to report as far as our day-to-day goes. Between eating, sleeping, and pooping, Sophia's schedule is pretty booked up. In between those activities, I find time for showering, reading, napping, and catching on reruns of Desperate Housewives on Lifetime. My days are pretty major. We've had visits from Jana and Ryden pretty much every week, which is awesome. What Sophia and Ryden may not understand is that they are betrothed, so Jana and I figure that they should hang out a bit and get to know one another. :) Sophie also had a cold last week, which wasn't the worst thing in the world. That is, she wasn't too fussy or miserable, but the amount of snot that can come out of that little nose is pretty impressive. She makes mommy so proud... The worst seems to be over now, and the booger sucker is almost a thing of the past.
Easter was fun, but quick. We took a chance and decided to risk the car trip down to San Diego to visit Tony's family. His parents hadn't seen Sophia since she was born, and his grandmother hadn't seen her at all. The trip down wasn't too bad. We made it all the way to Mission Viejo (80+ miles of the 120 mile trip, for my out-of-staters) before we had to stop for a feeding and a quick diaper change. The rest of the trip was a breeze, and Sophia was sleeping soundly 40 minutes after we arrived. Unfortunatley for her adoring fans, she also slept most of Easter, so most people didn't get to see her until about an hour or so before we started packing up to leave. The trip home was awful, and the traffic was MUCH worse than either Tony or I had anticipated. Thankfully, despite the fact that she usually wakes up if the car isn't moving, Sophie slept for the ENTIRE almost 4 hour car ride home. My daughter rules.
There are, of course, pictures to post, but I have a kid that needs to be fed pretty soon. Check back in shortly, and expect a new installment of April photos to be put up on snapfish.
