I know my husband is finishing up a blog post regarding yesterday's AWESOME events. However, I just can't help from posting a FEW of the pictures. :) I won't even comment on them...except to say they are SOOC and we had so much fun. The end.

See, I eve only posted TWO. I deleted one. :) No worries more on the antics of swimming with a large lab to come. :)

January 1, 2011

Sounds like a holiday. Wait. I think it is a holiday. Let me check my calendar. Yes, definitely a holiday here in the USA. In the Golbov family it could also be a birthday.

That's right. Baby Number Two (aka Bean) is on the way.


So were we. :)

Sesame is taking the news welll. I told her there was a baby in Momma's tummy and she patted my belly. Now she'll give Bean kisses. Awesome. :)

She also thought it was funny. :)

Oh and here are some photos of how we live when I'm overwhelmed with work:

So look out world...another pajama unzipping fiend is on his/her way! :)

Sesame has been restless the past few nights. I'm wondering if those last four teeth are trying to break through. Either way, it means less sleep for Momma. Today husband graciously rose with Sesame at 6 am so I could nab a couple more hours sleep. :) Here's how I woke this morning:

Door creaks open.

Hushed tones ensue:

"Nellie, go see Mommy."
"No, no - shhhhhhhhhh, we're quiet. Shhhhhhhhhhh."


Something landed on top of me. Something laundry. I opened my eyes to see Sesame's pajamas. Shortly followed by a diapered Sesame. Bleary-eyed and confused I turned to husband.

"Why is she naked??" I asked.

"I didn't do it." he replied with his quirky grin.

It's true ladies and gentlemen. Nells has officially mastered the snap and zipper. She can now fully remove her clothing. Per Dr. Roscoe - it might be time to break out the duct tape for her diapers and turn allllllllllll the jammies inside out. :)

A word that has permeated our home these days. What was that??? You want to know what is so unexpected?? I'm so glad you asked. No, really, I am. I have a list - Ya'll know how I like lists! :)

1. Instant oatmeal packages in my dishwasher.
2. Mini-basketball in my dryer.
3. Shoes in my toilet.
4. Sidewalk chalk in my bathroom.
5. Little People in multiple crevices
- my shoes
- tupperware
- the locked cureo cabinet (that one I still can't figure out!)
- the fridge (which I wasn't aware tiny hands could open)
6. A collection of water bottles under the couch.
7. Dog treats in the toy drawer.
8. Shampoo under my desk.
9. Missing headphone covers (I caught her with them the other her mouth...and now I think I know where the neon green poo came from)

Ah. The joys of a 16 month old. :)

So just because I haven't posted, doesn't mean Sesame has slowed with her shenanigans. On the contrary.

How many children do you know that can be both diva and Einstein??

Um I know one. Her name is Nells Bells. She attended a senior shoot with me at the beginning of May and just ate up the attention. Love this kid!

And this photo. I nannied for the girl on the right (who graduates from college in DECEMBER!) and the girl on the left (who is graduating from high school IN MAY!). How poignant that they now watch my little one. I really think I might have to have a ginormous copy of this for my work room. I'm welling with tears now. Oh no. The wells are overflowing...wet keyboard...

So I have to tell you all. Nells is becoming quite the helper. Today I opened the dishwasher and she started unloading the dishes. She lined all the plates up in a little row and then looked up at me. "What are you going to do now?" I asked her. Then she stacked three of them and heaved and grunted until she lifted them up to me. "Mah-muh!" She shouted. Why? Because I was totally spaced out on my daughter's capability. I mean...HELLO!? She's ONLY 16 months?! Jesopete...I'm not ready for this yet...

Then there's the unpacking of the blow up pool. She managed to open the box (which was taped) and pull out the pool in the time it took me to pee.

Trust me...just because there haven't been interweb stories doesn't mean they don't exist! :)
