Friday's Letters 1:18:13

Dear Simon,
I can't believe you're 8 months old today. Stop growing for a little while, please. I think this is my favorite age so far. You've got a cute little personality and are starting to interact with us in a major way. I've also learned that there's something to celebrate and something to mourn with each age of development. Like, soon, you'll be mobile; it will be great because you'll physically be able to move yourself; however, you're going to get into everything. On another note, I think you're just sleeping well on Thursday nights so that I'll blog about it on Fridays. Let's try sleeping a little better the other 6 nights of the week. That being said, good job for last night.

Dear MayMay,
Happy Birthday! I wish we were there to celebrate with you!

Dear Weekend,
Glad you're here.

Dear St. Louis weather,
I get excited any time it's going to be higher than 40 degrees - I'm excited about your high of 56 today! Woohoo. I might even go for a walk, who knows.

Dear brown burlap fabric,
Where are you? I've looked everywhere. I even dreamed that I found you, but alas, you're nowhere to be found. 

Dear Readers,
I recently learned this new way to put eye drops in and it's changed my life {I apparently have dry eyes}. Tilt your head back, close your eyes, put the drop right by the inside of your eye, and then when you open your eye, the drop will slide into your eye! Don't worry if you drop a few drops on your forehead or nose, I've done that too. Tom had a good point though the other day, he said that maybe it's not so good because any "junk" {grease, dirt, sleep boogers, mascara} you have on the rim of your eye might slide in with the drop. Good point; I'm sure optometrists everywhere would frown on my tip. BUT, it's still easier and less traumatic than dropping the drop in cold turkey.
