We took a walk around cold and sunny Lockeland Springs yesterday because Tessa seemed keen on pushing her "baby dawes" stroller and moving it around the house wasn't cutting it. By the way, she loves the two dolls we got her for Christmas—they're in her arms constantly, the both of them—but one is blond-haired and periwinkle-eyed and one brown-haired and brown-eyed. I've really got to work on finding some Tessa-like dolls. Wanted: Doll with insane brown hair, gray eyes and caramel skin. Let me know if you know of any. After this brisk walk, we got an early dinner at Five Points Pizza Kitchen. We've fallen in love with this new little pizza joint—most especially its garlic knots. Then all went to bed early and woke up happy. Welcome, 2012. We're pretty excited about you.
