I very foolishly set up the new babe's Fisher Price Infant-to-Toddler Rocker yesterday. Of course, I thought I was just tackling another project on the to-do list, but now Iris has adopted the rocker for her own. I keep telling her how nice it is that her baby sister is sharing the rocker with her, but she couldn't care less. I think we might have to buy another one. The last thing Iris needs is another small piece of furniture in the house, but I don't want to make it look like the new baby is taking the rocker away from her. Maybe it will just be an early "birth day" gift? Matt and I were talking about getting something for Iris, from her new sister, but maybe the rocker will have to suffice.
I have also, half jokingly, bugged Matt about a "push present". Apparently it's something all the stars are doing, as I learned on a recent show on VH1. Of course, all the celebrities get diamonds and other assorted jewelry. Us lowly folk have to set our sights a bit lower. So we decided that the new couch I have my heart set on will be my present. Yay! I had originally been rallying hard for a new laptop, but I think it's still a bit extravagant for us. Since our current couch is actually a very old, lumpy, stinky futon on a rickety frame, I think getting a new couch is a pretty solid purchase.
