finally broken!

Thanks for sending all the good anti-vicious cycle karma into the world for me. The vicious cycle has been broken. I am awake and happily working on making a batch of pecan rolls (from yesterday’s leftover pizza dough), cleaning up the house, getting organized and doing *work* for the outside world too. Oh, and here I sit, sneaking in a blog post…

I’m thrilled to report that after a long bout of teething-meets-the-wrath-of-the-virus, our sweet, funny, spirited little birdie is back. In a big way. Pizza night was a hit! Followed by a wild rumpus then the reading of Ezra Jack Keats The Snowy Day and what more can I ask for?

This is our nest’s new favorite book (thanks, Aunt Becky). The illustrations are fantastic (love the gouache meets collage technique, don’t you?) and what a great story of snowy exploration. To top it off, I am in love with the name Ezra. For a boy or girl, no?

Don’t you just love Peter? I just want to put him in my pocket – he’s just so darn cute. In fact, I suppose you could put this version of Peter in your pocket:

Dear readers, I hope you have a super hump day. It’s my birdie’s 9 month birthday today. She’s just about been out of the womb as long as she was in it. It’s bittersweet, isn’t it? How the time does indeed fly by. Before you know it, she’ll be in Brownies and I’ll be asking you if you’d like to buy any Thin Mint cookies. Sigh.

  1. Good Morning Ashlea, so glad your happy Wren is back. I don’t know that story, I will have to check it out. Arrived ahead of sch., and get this,also arrived to 84 degrees! The warmest it has been in forever down here. Now just to get a couple of good night sleeps. Today we are going to the Farmers Mkt. Looking forward to that. Hugs to all, much love Grandma Judy

  2. Ezra – no, for boy or girl. Please. I’m happy for you all that the little one’s innate (inate?) good nature has returned. She really has a very pleasant temperment. 9 months! Have a great time in Chicago! xoxoxo

  3. Ezra is one of my favorite names ever and since I’m not having kids, you MUST use the name. Or else I will waste it on a dog someday.
