When the family is hanging out in the bed it is always a really fun and silly time. I few months ago Adriana asked the silliest question ever. It is a question only a child exposed to lots of nursing moms would ask. She said "Mama are you going to pour milk into your breasts for the baby?" Obviously this is still something Michael and I laugh about and Adriana will ask on occasion to get a laugh. She asked again lastnight which is why I'm blogging about it. She can be so silly and we love it!!!! I think she is half sersious, Michael told her God would pour milk in mama's breasts for the baby.
This would have been the phrase of the week had I been blogging at the time.

Adriana does really well on the bar. She used to flip her hands once she started to flip but now she is doing it without fiipping those hands. It is amazing to see her improvement.
Adriana got really strong over the summer, once we came back from summer break she was able to do the rings with no problem. She is supposed to land on her feet which she can do but when she tries to go to fast it doesn't happen. She was going fast.
I'm really not sure what benefit this has on the body for gymnastics but Adriana loved it and had a blast being rolled. Yes she is a big amusement park girl.

I went to bed last night knowing it was supposed to snow. I was definitely hoping it would not snow (unlike the schoold children praying for snow) for two reasons. One, I was at work and if my clients don't go to their jobs or programs that means I have to stay until someone comes in to relieve me. Secondly, and more importantly because I had plans to go to a talk on organization - if you could see my office you would know I need this. Plus, I am also really excited to get together with the families in the community. Well when I woke up this morning (5:45 am) one of my co-workers was already outside shoveling snow, we must have had 3-4 inches by then. Boy did the snow put a damper on my plans. During the last storm I drove home from work only going 30-35 miles/hour on a major highway. I hated that drive so today I decided that it would be best to stay at work (get a little overtime) a wait out the snow. Plus I had Michael check my e-mail and the talk was rescheduled. It worked!! Four hours after my shift ended a regular schedule of staff came in and I went home. Roads were great. I would say we got a total of 12 inches in Worcester. It was coming down pretty fast for while. What a year for snow we almost hit the record in Dec 26.9 inches.
A tired and pregnant mama got home just in time to nap with my daughter.
A nor'easter (also northeaster; see below) is a macro-scale storm along the East Coast of the United States. A nor'easter is so named because the winds in a nor'easter come from the northeast, especially in the coastal areas of the Northeastern United States and Atlantic Canada. More specifically, it describes a low pressure area whose center of rotation is just off the East Coast and whose leading winds in the left forward quadrant rotate onto land from the northeast.

Today I was reminded that my daughter would much rather use her imagination and play with random boxes than her toys. My daughter who as more toys than I have room for only needs the pops you get in the fragile boxes and large boxes. Why can't I remember this when I'm buying one more of those toys, I think she must have.

The fun part about co-sleeping is the fun you have in the morning. This morning evn though I was up at 4:30 a.m. I layed back down in the bed when Michael and Adriana woke up. Adriana loves to snuggle. Then she attacked daddy, the tickle monster. Daddy got revenge, he turned into a lion and attacked mama and Adriana. Maybe mama was the reason Adriana was attacking daddy's feet. I love co-sleeping. It is great!!!!
