Kids Don't Lie

We were watching Josh's niece and nephews last night and I had a conversation with his niece that went something like this:
Niece: "Do you like being a mommy?"
Me: "Yes, I love being a mommy. It is really fun. Do you want to be a mommy some day."
Niece: "Yeah."
Niece (while poking my belly): "It looks like you are going to have another baby."
Me: "No, I am not."

And I thought I looked okay for having a baby a few months ago. It is time to start getting serious about working out again.

Happy 2010!

Sometimes I feel like I am the only one blogging still. I hope that doesn't mean that nobody is reading anymore.
Anyway, Ember was just a little bit spoiled this Christmas. She doesn't really need anything so we just got a couple of things for her this year. Next year I think we will just wrap the same gifts up again and give them to her all over again, because everyone knows that the wrapping paper in the real favorite toy anyway. Here she is with her loot. She still prefers her hands to any other toy. She got an unbrella stroller, two outfits, bubbles, plastic bowls, and a duck toy and duck towel from Grandma and Grandpa. She also got a couple of outfits from Josh's side of the family but she got those later on Christmas and they didn't make it in the photo.
The bubbles were a real disappointment. Granted, they were 2 for $1, but I can't get any bubbles to actually blow. Josh did manage to get one or two bubbles but they were a total bust. Anyone know how to make bubbles? I am guessing it is just dish soap and water but I don't know how much of each to put in. Google, here I come.
The duck, however, was a big hit. She loves it. She is trying to eat it in this one. Duck might be her first solid food and she is not a vegetarian.
It has a motion detector and it will say things like "I love you" or "Peek-a-boo" or "quack quack" Twice now, we have been playing with it and then I have put her to bed and maybe 20 minutes later I have come back into the room and the duck has said "I love you". It is a bit unnerving. I think it might be possessed. Either that or it has the hots for me. I don't quite know what to think about that. I hope everyone else had a fabulous Christmas and a Happy New Years.
