sorry for being away from the computer this week...it has been super hectic and crazy. luckily, my mom was in town to help us cope and watch the bird. they had a wonderful time together playing and singing and doing all kinds of fun things. including playing with the sticky jelly hearts i had on our window. the bird thought it was most entertaining to stick them to the floor, then back to the window, then our kitchen cabinets, then the window... you get the picture. thank you mom (nanna). your support means everything to us!
