Jen and I are both home today, making for an unusually blissful Tuesday. Jen has the day off because of election day. I am normally off on Mondays and Tuesdays, though this is my first week on that schedule, so it still feels like a guilty treat, rather than a normal schedule. Natalie played with our faces and babbled happily for about half an hour after waking up this morning, grinning at the TWO MOMS in bed with her who weren't trying to rush out the door. Together, we walked over to the polls, and introduced Natalie to the voting process. She was outraged
to find out that her vote didn't really count, but was pleasant enough to the election workers while we were there (read: grinned like mad at anyone who looked at her). After running some errands, during which she napped in her stroller, we returned home for lunch and playtime.
I tried yesterday to get a picture of Natalie's tooth. Highly unsuccessful
. With two of us on the job, we were finally able to get one, though it took some doing:
Apparently, with both of her moms home, Natalie felt like showing off. She really, truly laughed (as in, more than a single "ha") while jumping in my lap. Then she sat
unsupported for the longest she ever has.
Holy cow. She really is growing up.
PS - The last time we both had the day off from school with Natalie, Jen fell and broke her arm
. This time, Cait cracked her head on the nursing stool while playing on the floor with Natalie and gave herself a mild concussion. Days off are dangerous!
PPS - Mild, folks. Really, really mild. She's ok, just taking it easy.
