Sunday randomness

I played in my first ice hockey game today. SOOOooooo much fun! We won, 7 to 1. I felt like I played reasonably well, and our team played really well together. We managed to put into practice all the things we've worked on over the last few years. Yay hockey!!!

My sis and I went to the mall last Sunday with our respective babies. As we were leaving, I went through the door first, then held it open for her. This other female person waltzed through after her, and didn't even bother to say thank you. My mouth opened before my brain could do anything, and I said in a really sarcastic tone of voice "No problem, let *me* just hold the door for you." She gave me a nasty look, but you know what? I felt pretty dame smug about it. I am always so nice and polite, and let people get away with being rude, but this time my mouth won out.

M and I went to a friend's wedding last night, and I had my first alcoholic drink in almost 11 months. Two toasted almonds. Yummy! We had such a great time at the wedding (my mom was babysitting), and although we had to leave early because A only ate 2.5 oz at his 8pm feeding so I wasn't sure if he'd be down for the night, or wake up at around 11 for more, we did get to stay for some dancing, and the cake! I tried on all my formal dresses the night before, fortunately one of them fit me. It had criss-crossing ties in the back - which used to meet up in a bow in the middle of my back, but with my little baby belly there was no meeting at all. But no-one else knew that ;-)

The past week has been really cool with Antony. So many things have changed! He's leaving his hands open now, they're not in fists nearly as much anymore. He's blowing spit bubbles, and sticking his tongue in and out. Definitely looking AT the toys on his gymini now, and he was apparently following Winnie the Pooh with his eyes when my mom was babysitting the other day, although I haven't seen that myself yet. Also lots more talking and smiling. We stayed at my mom's house last night after the wedding, and had a really fun exchange with Ant when we got up this morning.

Me: Antony, I hear you were reading some poetry with your granny last night?

Ant: Smile

Granny: I started reciting the poetry and he went to sleep almost right away.

Ant: Smile

Grampa: We should tell him some limericks!

Ant: Smile

Grampa: There once was a man from Nantucket...

Ant: Huge smile and almost a chuckle.

We all roared with laughter. The timing of his smiles was just *so* perfect, and the grin we got after "Nantucket" was priceless!

It's so great that you are playing hockey again and loving it so much!!

I think that it is great that you said something to that ungrateful woman that you held the door for. I can't tell you how many times I have wanted to say something to rude people like that.... I have said something once or twice but usually find the person way to caught up in themself to even notice!

SOOOOO glad that you are having such a blast with that little Ant. More pictures please :)

BTW - when I had that 3D u/s the tech was trying to get a shot of her hands (with fingers stretched out) and all we got were fists (just like mom!) so hopefully she has fingers!!

Smiles are fun. Sounds like he's the little charmer!
