In and Out of Town.

This weekend, Eric is out of town doing a gun show in Raleigh, NC. In turn, Grandma and Grandpa H. are here to spend the weekend with two of their most favorite girls. (That would be Elaina and me, by the way.)

We spent the majority of the day shopping and loading up on lots of great stuff. (We love stuff ! ) We found plenty of nice things for Elaina and Grandma and Grandpa and even Eric. I had no luck at all in finding the one and only one thing I needed for me - a dress for Elaina's baptism. Isn't that just the way it goes ? Oh well, it's truly Elaina's day and she will be looking beautiful - but then again, when doesn't she ?

Now more about our girl ... My mom has often referred to Elaina as a "Love Sponge." She is exactly that. She just soaks up every bit of love and attention directed her way. In return, she generously shares her hugs and affection to her adoring family members. Today she finally said, "Mom !" Then, "Mama." Yeah ! She is too cute ! Happy Mother's Day to me - a week early !

After a busy, long day, Grandma snuggled down with Elaina to feed her bedtime bottle. In the meantime, I was on a cleaning rampage throughout Elaina' closet. I sorted and organized and categorized and labeled all of her too small and too big clothes. Whew ! This girl has alot of clothes ! I have to admit that it was sweet remembering how little she was and how it seems like it wasn't very long ago that she was wearing her 3-6 month wardrobe. Where has the time gone ? Now I know where the clothes have gone ! ( In plastic totes #1-3 ! )

**In case you were wondering, we don't refer to that as being "spoiled" - we prefer to say that she is "worthy !"
And that she is !
