Oh my god, how did he get over there?

Monkey is crawling and using random furniture to pull himself up!! He also has a bruise the size of a nickle on his forehead from falling over!My little baby is quickly approaching toddler-hood. Can I make time slow down? He wants to cuddle less and less. I'm so torn between pride and being sad. Everyone warned me he would grow up to fast and I always replied, " Yes, I know." I didn't know it would be this fast!!!!

Now that I shared a little mommy news let me share the last book I read.
I just finished Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella. Do you recognize the name? She wrote Confessions of a Shopaholic which was great book and cute movie. Twenties Girl has a lot in common with her other novels, its a light enjoyable read with some heart touching moments and it occasionally tickles your funny bone. However, I'm glad I checked it out from the library and didn't buy it.

Publisher's Summary from Audible.com

Lara Lington has always had an overactive imagination, but suddenly that imagination seems to be in overdrive. Normal professional 20-something young women don't get visited by ghosts. Or do they?

When the spirit of Lara's great-aunt Sadie - a feisty, demanding girl with firm ideas about fashion, love, and the right way to dance - mysteriously appears, she has one last request: Lara must find a missing necklace that had been in Sadie's possession for more than 75 years, and Sadie cannot rest without it. Lara, on the other hand, has a number of ongoing distractions. Her best friend and business partner has run off to Goa, her start-up company is floundering, and she's just been dumped by the perfect man.

Sadie, however, could care less.

Lara and Sadie make a hilarious sparring duo, and at first it seems as though they have nothing in common. But as the mission to find Sadie's necklace leads to intrigue and a new romance for Lara, these very different "twenties" girls learn some surprising truths from each other along the way.

Written with all the irrepressible charm and humor that have made Sophie Kinsella's books beloved by millions, Twenties Girl is also a deeply moving testament to the transcendent bonds of friendship and family.

So, what to read next? I've been trying to get my hands on Dead and Gone by Charlaine Harris. It's the latest in the Sookie Stackhouse series which is the bases for HBO's True Blood. I've loved the books and the show so far and I'm sure this book won't disappoint. However, it's been checked out of the library for a month and I keep forgetting to get it from my sister. So I guess I'll try to read one of the other books I borrowed from the library. I'll let you know how that goes. :)
