mirror conversation

As I was walking past the bathroom mirror with Emily in my arms I noticed that she was watching herself move by. I paused to see what she would do and for the next few minutes enjoyed my baby interact with her reflection.

She started out just staring and then a little smile started. As she saw her reflection smile she grinned happily. Then she laughed at herself and started to coo and babble a bit. I imagine that they were discussing how funny it was that they both had the hiccups.

homemade sushi rolls

We don't have any great sushi options locally so I've been intending to make my own for months now. Today I finally got around to it. The crab and cucumber rolls turned out amazing and while the salmon rolls are ok, I'm not impressed with canned salmon and I'll try lox next time. Maybe some avocado too.

Happy Birthday to me!

Yesterday was my birthday and I treated myself to dinner out with friends and made myself a turtle cheesecake. It was a gorgeous, sunny day so the girls and I hung out at the playground with a couple friends in the afternoon. Eric is working swing shift so he missed dinner, but I saved him some and he enjoyed the cheesecake as a midnight snack. My car and iPod were my presents this year and I got them early so it was a quiet birthday.
