Odd and Ends


Life has just gotten busy 'round here!

I'm taking a couple of minutes while Maggie is having fun in her playstation to just say 'hi!' and let y'all know what's been going on in the Webb household.

So ... up first ...

A couple of weeks ago, one of my very bestest friends - Ashli - came to visit for a long weekend and see Maggie for the first time.

(Ashli, Mary (Maggie's godmother) and I have been friends for a coon's age. We don't get to see each other much these days because we went 3 different directions after college, but whenever we're together it's like no time has passed at all since the last time we visited. Thank goodness for electronic communication - keeps us at least 'up-to-date' on each others lives.)

Needless to say, I was so happy to have Ashli here - I was up later than I have been since before pregnancy because we would just talk and talk and talk. I loved it! Makes me wish we all lived within driving distance (as opposed to flying distance). I'm glad she came out ... even if I had to fight her to pay for her lunch :)

Maggie quite enjoyed her company, too :)

Hello, friend! Can't wait to see you again!

Next ... we found our toes! And ever since, Maggie has not let go of them. When I get her up at 5:00 am and lay her down to change her diaper, UP go the feet and, with eyes still closed with sleep, she's yanking on her toes. It's the cutest thing, and I'd take a picture but, hello, it's 5:00 AM! I'm not even really awake yet!

And ... we rolled over this afternoon! From tummy to back! Alas, no picture of that accomplishment because Maggie (1) did when no one was watching, and (2) has refused our repeated requests to do it again.

Finally ... this past Friday was the first night of our Friday Night Friends group. Some friends of ours - all married with babies - got together Friday evening for a potluck dinner and fellowship. Hubby and I had such a good time. It was so fun playing with all the babies and taking time with friends that you see often around church and such, but don't usually get to really talk to and spend time with. We're rotating as the hosting home so no one person has to do that, everyone brings a dish, and we're meeting once a month. I'm so excited about this! It has been a desire of mine for a few years now, and to actually see it happen is so cool. Plus, since we all have babies, crying/screaming/drooling/pooping/burping/spitting-up/running-around baby-ness doesn't faze anybody. How great is that?!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

PS: As I was signing off, I looked over and this is what I saw:

Maggie has scooted herself completely off her playmat (and removed a sock) and y'all ... she is watching football. 'Scuse me. I think I need a tissue ...
