Bullet Points

- About 6 years ago (maybe less), I was listening to NPR on the topic of a messaging system that gave updates to family and friends but was limited to about 140 characters. I immediately thought, "Why would anyone want to use that?"

Twitter, HA!

Now, I get to do status updates for work on Twitter. for WORK. How odd, huh? If you want to follow tpt go here. (I won't be offended if you don't or have no clue as to what I'm talking about. I'm a late adopter.)

- I tried on my wedding dress a few weeks ago. No reason, really. But, should I be worried that 1) it's still dirty from that day. No I never dry-cleaned it - should I? and 2)it fits. I know, I was shocked too. Either I was chubby 9 years ago or I've somehow lost all the married and baby weight I put on.

- I have a new office mate. And while he's nice, he's extremely opinionated. OPINIONATED! He thinks I'm in idiot for using a PC. Hey, buddy, I've got me one of them fancy itouch things so lay off me!

I've also been banished to the woman's dressing room to pump. Actually, it's pretty sweet. I have a private bathroom and I catch up on my two tv shows. (Parks and Rec - Hilarious! and Office) It's a nice break during the day. But still annoying.

- We're heading over to London in May. WITH.THE.BABY.NINE.HOUR.FLIGHT.OH.HELP.ME! I'm a little worried. The kid has flown as recently as January and did great. But now, he's getting more like, "hey, you, hold me!" "No, wait! I want to look at you upside down." "Put me down over there!" "WHY'D you put me down!!"

Ya, that should be fun on a plane. But his passport is so cute! (my preshus bayyy-beeee has a passport!)

- and speaking of Jules (I'll keep it short, I promise), he totally understands me! For example:
(Scene: Baby in my moms arms at the table, playing with her necklace. Me sitting next to them.)

Me: Jew-uls, eh, eh. Don't pull

Jules: (blank stare at me - then back to pulling)

Me: Jew-uls, don't pull

Jules:

Me:

Jules: (yanks hard)

Me: JULES! Eh, eh! Don't pull.

Jules: (pouty face emerges and begins a FAKE CRY, people)

Me: Oh, Jules, you're fine, don't pull.

Jules: :)

London! Awesome! Got something going on in particular, or just vacation?

After the marathon, I went to brunch with my parents, sister and her (then) 1 1/2 year old. First he wanted the french toast, then he'd just about stab a piece with his fork, but then he didn't want it. Scream and cry. Then he wanted it again, but with his fork just an inch away again, then he didn't want it. Scream and cry.

Some people's kids...

My friend, Tony, moved there a few months back and we wanted to take an overseas trip while the baby was still little.

Maybe you should clean your wedding dress?

I say take advantage of the time you don't have to work while you're doing that Mommy thing in the bathroom. Besides, you won't have to put up with your officemate eating his nails.

I think Jules will be fine on the flight, they tend to sleep most of the time on overnight flights. Just bring along extra ear plugs so you can hand them out to the people around you.

Jessi!

I was talking to Sandia the other day and she told me about your blog and said that you guys have a BABY! So I had to come and check it out for myself. Your Jules is just adorable, and it looks like things are going really well for you all.

We miss you guys! If you'd like to catch up you can email me at andranelson@hotmail.com.

Andra (and Leher) :)

You know we have been everywhere that involves long hours of flying with the kids. What really makes a difference is the airline and the hostesses. Yeah, United is the worst and Malaysian and Emirates are the BEST. If Jules is easily distracted with TV, pray that there will be a kids channel with a choice of over 300 shows, and you will be fine. The other thing is, babies do sleep, nine hours sounds a lot, but goes by fast. Other thing you can try is natural calming formulas that you can buy at Wild Oats or similar, but try them before you fly because some have the opposite effect. Have fun!
