As Bennett approaches her first birthday (sniff sniff) I am thinking back a lot on her first year. It hit me this morning as I was journaling that she has traveled quite a bit in her first 10 months of life. I noted that appropriately, she has been to 11 states in 11 months. And she has spent the night in 7 of them. We realized that she had spent the night in Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, Texas, Kentucky, and Kansas. And she has passed through Mississippi, Tennessee, Illinois, and Missouri. Since her father and I both love to travel we thought that we should get her off to a good start, and it looks as if we have.
Also, we found her first tooth today! Hooray! I was starting to get a little worried, but this morning I thought I noticed something when she smiled at me and there it was! It's a big day in our house.
And finally on a completely random and side note, did anyone watch American Idol last night? I don't usually blog about TV shows, but I was so disgusted by bikini girl. All I kept thinking was that my little nieces are watching this. Doesn't Simon usually throw out people in costumes as being gimmicky? Why didn't that qualify as a costume? And all the shots from behind? Sorry. I have no idea why I included that in a post about Bennett's first tooth, but it really annoyed me. Not to the point that I would stop watching mind you, but to the point where I would interrupt a perfectly harmless blog post and vent about it.
The ghosts that haunt us
