I know, I know … it’s been too long since I last blogged. I’m sorry, but I do my work in the evenings, and then I just want to veg out and watch TV or whatever. SUE ME.
Anyway, funny story. I gave Emma a bath on Monday evening, and then Chris and I put her to bed. We left her room, shut her door and came back out into the living room, expecting to see Norbert curled up in my chair like he normally is. Nope. Then we expected to find him curled up on our bed in front of my pillow (his other favorite spot). Nope again. We looked all over the place for that crazy mutt, but he was nowhere to be found. We figured we shut him in Emma’s room, so I opened up her door and looked in, but he wasn’t there.
Turned out he had gotten himself shut in the bathroom where I had given Emma a bath. He had been hanging out with us in there, and I guess I had shut him in there when I carried Emma out. Poor thing, he hadn’t made any noise being shut in there in the dark. He probably thought he was in trouble. Chris let him out and gave him a dog treat to try to make up for it. He doesn’t seem any worse for the wear. Silly puppy.
Chris, Emma and I will be visiting Indiana Oct. 10-17. There’s a Heacock family get-together on that Saturday, and the annual Martinsville Fall Foliage Festival parade on Sunday that we’ll get to attend. I think Emma will really like the parade.
We’re planning on taking Emma to the San Diego Zoo soon. I think we should probably wait until it’s not as scorching outside, but I want to go fairly soon. I think she’ll love seeing all the animals.
Emma’s into waving at people (anyone and everyone) these days, which is the cutest thing. She says “hi” sometimes, but she says “bye” a lot. It’s so funny. We were leaving Johnny Rockets (where we ate lunch) Monday, and she waved at one of the waiters and said “byeee.” He turned around and smiled and waved back. So cute. She’s also into blowing kisses and making the kissy smack noise. Again at Johnny Rockets Monday our favorite waiter stopped by to say hello to us. He turned and walked away, and Emma blew him a kiss to his back. She loves him. It was so sweet.
That’s all for now. More later.

The San Diego Zoo is cool, but I’d highly recommend a good map and taking the tram as much as you can. It’s really spread out, and there’s lots of hills, so a day there can get pretty tiring.
A local recommended that we go to the SDZ Wild Animal Park instead. We didn’t go, so I can’t vouch for how good it is, but several LA locals swore it was better than the actual Zoo. Since I grew up in Cincinnati, and we were told the Cincy Zoo was 2nd only to the SDZ, I just had to go there. The SDZ was good…but Cincy was better 😉
Thanks for the info, Andrew! I’ll look into it! 🙂
Well, nobody except Dirk Buttress!
Jaime can elaborate on this inside joke… 🙂
