Hub took off from work yesterday unexpectedly, which was nice. I was good on my diet, which is really hard with him around. He got a sub for lunch - and I resisted. Then last night one of my girlfriends came over, and while we had Mexican for dinner which was not healthy in the slightest, she drank wine and I had WATER. That's right, I resisted the temptation of alcohol. There is a first time for everything!

So while Hub was home, he became obsessed with reorganizing our digital photos onto fewer disks. I swear, he is borderline obsessive-compulsive, and I don't think he would argue with that. He was up till after 12:30 am doing this. And then he calls me into the office to look at some of the old pics of Princess. Now while I was not pleased about being roused from bed when I was trying to sleep, check these out:

This is Princess on the day she was just born and in the intensive care unit, where she stayed for 5 days:
Princess in the NICU

This is Princess with Aunt Karchamb at 2 months old:

Here is Princess at 4 months old. This is one of my favorite pics of her, even though she is basically bald:
Four months

And here is Princess as a ballerina, at about 6 months:
Ballerina Princess

Honestly, I can't even remember her being so small!!!

X - I did not "prefer" water to alcohol, I just made the right decision for once. I still prefer alcohol!!!

Trine - yes, I did that myself to the ballerina pic, with Photoshop.

Patsy - Ya ya!!! And yes, she was 3 weeks early and still 9 pounds 4 ounces. In the NICU with all the 2 pounders.
