Here's the bitching piece... People are insane. I don't quite get humans (especially those with xx chromosomes). I think I'm going to transport Bill, Liam, Jill and my parents to a foreign planet where weird humans don't exist and we can all live happily ever after. I'm seriously starting to think that recluses like JD Salinger have got the right idea. At least they don't have to deal with the bullshit that humans deal out on a daily basis.

Alright, enough bitching... Gotta check on my babes!

St. Paddy's Day

Unlike some people, I like St. Paddy's Day. In fact, I love the Irish! Irish people are great! Perfect, in fact! Yeah, Irish people!

Enough of that... Bill and Liam and I went out to dinner with Jill, Pam, Brian and Emma at Gregg's. Wow... Lots of names! Bill and Brian had corned beef and cabbage like good boys. I ate chicken, as corned beef just sounds gross, let alone is gross!

Liam was cute. He kept screaming, because he gets excited, and Emma kept crying, because she gets scared of Liam. It's a cute cycle.

Here are some cute pictures:

Liam on St. Paddy's Day morning - He's just so excited to be Irish!

This is Emma playing with a crayon for the first time. She did really well!

If you ever want to entertain my child, give him a balloon. He will laugh for hours!

In other news... I got a new car. Like for real. My RAV kind of died-ish. I brought it to get serviced and they told me that it would be $2,600, so I said screw. We bought a new 2006 Toyota Matrix, from another dealer (screw Tarbox). It was a good deal. I'm happy. I'll take pictures and put them up on my blog sometime this week. It's shiny.

Me & My New Jacket

Thanks, Grandma & Grandpa Doughty! I love my new jacket!

The Life Cycle of a Shoe

First, we wear the shoes.

Then we look at the shoes. They do look tasty!
Then we taste the shoes. My! They are tasty!

Then we play. It's an exciting life cycle!

From Sunday, 3/12/06.

Liam's 9 Month Birthday

Yeah! It's Liam's 9 Month Birthday! It's so cool that he's been out in the world as long as he was in my tummy!

Here are some cute pictures for the fam:

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love vegetables. Liam has become interested in eating table food, so please enjoy the introduction to baby carrots, which took place on Sunday.

Umm... I'm not too sure about these things mommy...

Yeah... I'm going to have to say "no..." Thanks, though.

Well, maybe... I mean, they are my size. That's kind of cool.

Yeah! I think I pooped!

These pictures are from today - his 9 month birthday!

Liam and Grandma on his 9 month birthday!

Life can be so hard... I mean... What with keeping up with the yacht...

And the golf outings. I'm exhausted!

I'm adorable... What can I say? This is my "I'm trying not to smile, but you're goofy" smile.

Perhaps Nickelodean should review their choice of MC for the Kids Choice Awards...

I will be attempting to post newer photos of Liam tomorrow, since it's going to be his 9 month birthday - HOLY CRAP!

Other than that... Working... Sleeping... Watching disgusting amounts of television (damn you, Sopranos)... Playing with Liam... Not seeing my husband (damn you, CPL).

In better news, apparently Lily enjoys dancing with a photo of Bill. That was cute!

My 5 Favorite Movies

As I was reading my husband's blog, I saw that he listed his top 10 (+20) favorite movies. Unlike him, I cannot select 30, let alone 10 movies... I tried. Movies take too long to watch. I have no patience... That kind of thing. So...

Some cute ass pictures!

I've made up captions, for what I think Liam may be thinking...

Liam: "I'm so excited to be wearing my radicool dinosaur Hugh Hefner pjs!"

Liam: "Yeah, Food!"

Liam: "I'm so cute in my dino hef pjs. All the chicks are gonna dig me!"

Liam: "Hey, I'm in a laundry basket! How did I end up here? Wait a second, this is kind of fun!"

I have all of these cute pictures of Liam...

On my computer at home. D'oh!

Oh well... I never get a chance to actually do anything on my computer at home, so I figured that I should at least stop into the blog and say "hi."


We're all still alive. Liam is adorable! We went to Wrentham outlets on Saturday and he was such a happy smiley baby and even when he got tired, he just fell asleep in his stroller for a few minutes to get himself to be happy again. I have the cutest picture of him, but again, on my computer at home. That night we went over to Jill's dad's house for her birthday. We hung out with Emma, who is so cute! Apparently she isn't used to loud noises, and when Liam gets excited, he screams - so that was a recipe for disaster. Emma's crawling over to where Liam is sitting and Liam goes for her hand and screams. Emma immediately pouts the lip and starts wailing. Liam looks at her, like, "What did I do?" Such a man... Never thinking that anything is his fault. :)

But by the end of the night and the many breakdowns - Emma was pretty cool with Liam. Instead of crying when Liam would scream with glee, she would just look at him, like, "Could you please keep it down?" You would think that Brian was the librarian! :)

Oh! And I'm so excited! The Amazing Race started back up again!! I was talking to my boss yesterday, before I actually watched the show (thank god for DVR), and he said that there was a couple on the show that reminded him of Bill and I. I was a bit skeptical, so I went on the web to see who he might be talking about. I was offended at first, until I actually watched the show. Lori and Dave are essentially the still dating version of Bill and I - personality, if not looks wise. Lori looks more like Annie and Dave is Bill if he plowed his way through a Dunkin' Donuts inventory. But still! They are so cute and describe themselves as the biggest nerds on the planet! If that's not Bill and I, I don't know who we are! We are nerds! And dorks! And we love each other! We are Lori and Dave! So I wasn't as offended by the end of the show and you know that I will be rooting for them throughout the competition!! Oh and the "Double D's" need to go... Jeez... I hate pink.

But yeah... Once I get a chance to post some of the uber cute pics of Liam from this past weekend, I will. And this Sunday is Emma's birthday, so we should have another fun/strange outing of shouting with glee and crying breakdowns!
