I'm a little bummed that the Patriots lost. I don't actually care for football, but Steve is a big Pats fan, and I was really hoping they'd make it to 19-0. Ah well, life goes on. We had Steve's friend Donovann and his wife over, as well as my brother. It was a nice, small gathering, but Donovann is super loud, louder than Steve, so Owen got spooked a few times.

Speaking of Owen, little man has been cranky the past couple of days. I don't know what's going on with him. His teeth have come through, so I don't think that's it, and he isn't sick or feverish or anything. Maybe he's just having a few bad days. I hope gets past them soon though, because my patience is wearing a little thin.

Last week, at one of the moms group meetups, we went to South Coast Plaza, which is a higher-end mall (Saks, Nordies, and Bloomingdales, but they also have a Sears) to have lunch and walk around. A group of 5 or so of us decided to walk into the Jimmy Choo store with our babies and strollers, and oh my God, it was hilarious. The salesmen just stared at us with these scared smiles on their faces. It was priceless.

One of the girls in my moms group has some artistic talent, and showed me some dinosaurs that she painted onto canvas. Since my bedding set doesn't come with any wall hangings or anything, I'm thinking of commissioning her to paint some for me, based on the dinosaurs in the pattern. I think they would be really cute, but I don't know how much I should offer her for them. I guess I'm getting a little ahead of myself because I don't even know if she'd do it.

If you do decide you want her to do it, you could always ask her how much she'd want and go from there. If it sounds reasonable to you, great. If not, you can negotiate a bit.

Sorry to hear about Owen's crankiness. You know, with babies, nothing ever seems to last too long. When D has a bad day, I just keep telling myself, this won't last forever. I hope Owen is feeling better soon!

Question for you: What kind of mesh feeder did you get for Owen? Is it just from BRU? I'm thinking D might enjoy gnawing on a banana.

He's still cranky, boo :(. I've started putting him in his crib for naps, but he'll only sleep for half an hour, so I wonder if that has anything to do with it.

I got the Munchkin mesh feeders. Owen loves eating bananas in them.

Daniel was super-cranky yesterday, and now his sleep is crap again, so I feel your pain. Sometimes, I wonder if babies' moods are controlled by the phases of the moon, there's no other way to explain it! :\

I guess it depends on how long it take sher to paint them, but I think somewhere in the $30-50 ballpark wouldn't be unreasonable?

that's too funny about the choo sore! I did that once in the Coach store, and I think I hear a collective letting out of breath when we left :p

Hope the little guys cranks are gone soon, it can really wear on you!

Apparently, we're not allowed to be fashionable after we have kids :p.
