Cold Front

Yesterday and today we had a cold front in good ol' South Texas! We did not get a chance to take advantage of it yesterday because Holly was busy coughing up a lung (after-effects of a nasty cold), but this morning I decided to go out and take a walk.

I got myself and Holly dressed for the cooler weather (63 degrees!) and then hauled the stroller in from the garage. I propped Holly on my nursing pillow so she could watch me get ready for our walk. Once I got the stroller in, I remembered that the tires were flat and I needed to pump them up. No problem, right? Uh, maybe if you're anyone but me. I usually don't think it necessary to read or follow instructions when attempting new things. Then I get angry when I have an extraordinarily difficult time accomplishing simple tasks, like pumping the tires on Holly's stroller. By the time I finally figured out how to fill them, I was sweating profusely and thought about giving up on our walk. But no! I had to get out in the cooler weather. By the time I was finally ready to go, Holly was asleep.

Would you believe she slept through our entire walk? She woke up about 30 seconds after I dragged the stroller back through the front door. Crazy kid.

Here are some more Holly pictures, just because I think she's cute:

She always has that "deer in the headlights" look when I use the flash on the camera. It's so funny.
