Is here! I wasn't going to garden this year, since I figured that I would probably have my hands full enough keeping the baby alive, much less some plants. However, last week I went to the local garden store and found lots of little side projects that I couldn't say no to.

So after Elliott and I got back from my first post-natal yoga class (SO fun! Elliott tried to cry the whole way through, but the other baby in class was louder and drowned him out!) I set out to get some of my little plants in the dirt. I had just gotten the last one planted and gave it a good drink of water, and went inside to watch a movie when I heard my neighbor calling out if anyone was there. I went outside and she was mad because my plants were dripping water on her new patio furniture. She asked me if I could come downstairs and ask her to move her cushions EVERY TIME I water my plants so that they wouldn't get dirty, which is difficult when I don't know when she is around and I have a brand new baby. Not to mention this is the same neighbor who puts a fan in her bedroom window to suck out the cigarette smoke out of her bedroom, thus blowing it into ours. I guess I'll venture out to Wal-Mart tomorrow to find some trays to catch the draining water, but aside from that I don't know how I can have a patio garden without water and dirt getting on her deck. *Sigh*

Aside from that, we've had a really relaxing weekend, and Elliott has started to take notice of some of the toys that we put in front of him, and although he isn't coordinated enough to bat at them yet, he's trying! It's exciting to know that he sees the brightly colored objects and is trying to figure out what to do with them.
