1) I mopped my kitchen floor last night. I know, I know, it doesn't sound monumental to some, but to me, this is huge! Come over for a visit! You're feet won't even stick to the floor! See what can be achieved with two parents home at the very same time?

2) Lincoln isn't a kitty anymore. (Shouldn't that really be Number #1 on my list?)
3) We put Lincoln to bed last night without his late night bottle which we would feed to him between 10-11:30 p.m. and he didn't even miss it. He slept all night and woke at his usual time! Hooray! No more falling asleep trying to feed him at midnight!
4) I have written the very final thank you note on behalf of baby gifts to Lincoln. I thought I was done a few other times and then "Ta Da! Look what so-and-so sent in the mail!" Certainly not complaining because "Hello!" We love baby gifts and baby clothes and big sister gifts and everything that comes with having a new baby but seriously, tame down the generosity folks, you're spoiling us!
5) Elaina went to tumbling class tonight and did great. She only paid me a visit back at the parents' table two times in the whole 45 minute class. Didn't complain the whole time and didn't even whine. She watched and followed along with the instructors and even tried to mimic the actions of the other kids.
6) Lincoln sat in the high chair for the first time tonight. He didn't exactly eat his rice cereal in the high chair like I had planned, but his butt made an appearance. He is still very interested in his new soft food within his mouth and ate a fair amount. I'm determined to give cereal to him on a more consistent basis. He's only had it on one other occasions, that being his first. (Slap my wrist!)

7) It's not quite 10:30 p.m. and I'm challenging myself to get to bed before 11:00. This will make the first time in I don't know the last time I went to bed before 11:00. I need to just put the blinders over my eyes so that I don't notice the laundry mountains which have taken over the love seat and NOT. LET. MYSELF. SURF. ANY. MORE. BLOGS. Notice my refined restraint? 11:00 People! Have a good one!

I was just reading something this morning about celebrating personal victories, and a mopped kitchen floor is a huge victory! If I could I would put your award in the mail today. A really nice thing about my mom visiting is that she always washes the floor. . . she's kind of a maniac that way. :-)

Sorry, dear daughter, but this mother doesn't do windows and she doesn't do floors.
