Then, out of nowhere, I was throwing up. Sick. So sick. Violently and frighteningly sick. Thank God Drew was here and able to take Tuesday off work to take care of Eleanor. I don't remember ever feeling so terrible. Technically I guess I had a 24 hour bug, since that's how long the horror lasted. (I'm being a little bit dramatic here, but it really was awful.) I've been frustrated yesterday & today because it's taking me so long to get my energy & strength back. It's slow going, but I'm getting there. I didn't exactly win any parenting awards yesterday, but we survived. Crackers? Check. Television? Check. A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.

Kyle & Misty's new pool is open and, thanks to the heater, is warm & tons of fun even in April!
First time in the water...

Happy to have Cheerios & turkey for lunch. She's eating less & less baby food and more & more real food.
Eleanor is pulling up onto her knees on her own, but is happy to stand if you put her that way.
We put the canopy on the wagon. It's cute, but I'm undecided on if it's actually useful or just in the way. Either way, Eleanor likes it best when the wagon is moving (or in the backyard where she can interact with the dogs).
Our garden is planted! Fingers crossed that we actually grow some veggies.
-Amish Paste Tomato (good for slicing, sauces & salsa)
-sweet 100 (sweet cherry tomatoes for salads & snacking)

Eleanor is still working on those top teeth (only one is through so far) and that makes for lots of back & forth in the mood department.
She's curious and scooting to the stairs to check things out. She's not completely pulling up, but is starting to pull up onto her knees to get a better peek at things.
She was mad about something, but her doggies were taking care of her.
I've spent so much time checking her teeth lately that she often returns the favor and check my teeth.
Practicing standing and moving those legs with Daddy (which she thinks is hilarious and the reason for the blurry picture).
She took a late nap after the doctor and was up until after 10 last night. Crazy baby. At least she was happy.

Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy a wagon and that's almost the same.
(Also, I didn't know that wagons don't come with the wheels attached.)

How about some pictures?
Sunday was TOO cold for baseball. We went anyway. Thank goodness Misty had an extra hat & blanket.
We have a great neighborhood for walking and it's extra exciting now that Eleanor is sitting forward in the stroller. This is how we roll.
So many toys. She would rather chew on a lid.
Drew is in Toronto this week. Eleanor has decided that sleeping all night is for chumps and that a 7:30 bedtime is for babies. This is me, trying to be amused over how wide awake she was at 9pm.
Nonnie is doing quite well since her surgery and we were happy to visit her this week.
Speaking of not sleeping (prepare yourself for the mother of all run-on sentences)... when the baby wakes up for the 4th time, it's now 5:30am, you know good and well that she's not ready to get up (despite her eyes being wide open & her very loud demands), but she really needs a dry diaper if she's going to lay in bed with me... please tell me why on earth anyone ever thought that the sole opening of footie pajamas should be a single zipper from her neck to her foot. Why? Tell me why! There is no way to casually change a diaper without getting the baby nearly naked and waking her completely up. For the love, there must be a better way. She's so nice and snuggly in footie pajamas, but that zipper is just ridiculous. Ridiculous, I tell you.
Despite more frequent waking and my irrational 5:30am anger over a zipper, we're having a good week. Missing Daddy, but we're good. Also, green beans are delicious.
I've had the legs off of this toy so that Eleanor could sit & play with it, but this morning she was pushing/pulling up on it.
And for the necessary bath that followed to get the bananas out of her ears and hair.
