Happy Mother's Day to me a few days early! I ran across a display of air plants at the mall after making some Target returns (it turns out the zipper on Maggie's raincoat wasn't broken after all), and decided these were exactly what I wanted for Mother's Day. And there was no real point in sending Brian when I could just purchase them myself and pick out the very ones I wanted. I hung them in the dining room windows today, and I am oh, so delighted.
Of course, I promptly forgot the names of the plants, but they both flower and then produce babies, which just increases their bulk (unless I pinch them off to make new balls). They need to be misted a few times a week or taken down and dunked (soaked in this one's case) in a sink full of water. Low maintenance and frighteningly pretty!
And a bonus pretty is this necklace I received from Maggie today!
HappyPoor Leo's been on the receiving end of some serious blog neglect lately. I always say Leo was born happy, and he is an extremely good-natured fella, but teething is teething, and Leo's had it bad. A few nights ago I discovered two upper bicuspids way back in his mouth that he cut when he only had his four front teeth. Leo says, "Bring on the steak!"

Leo is loving this walker these days. It's kind of difficult to use indoors since it's pretty heavy and has to be steered around furniture. I finally had the idea to bring it outside this morning where he can practice walking on sidewalks. He had a ball but found his shoes kind of hard to adjust to.
