2 years later...

TV is going up on the wall and all that equipment being put away and of course some pics of B will be displayed instead!

We finally got bedroom furniture. We have been using tray tables and janky lamps, not cute mismatched but scary mismatched and mine was broken. Anyway, the room isn't done, TV needs to be hung, a mirror or two to put up and what not but its so close! Furniture, check. Lamps that work, check. Bedding, bedskirt, table skirt, check. I love walking in my room now. My husband likes to keep commenting on how the lamps aren't functional. They are kinda tall, ok really tall, and you can't reach them while laying in bed. I realize for most that function would haven kept them from buying these particular lamps but I never do things the easy way. If you know me you are not shocked by this. The lamps are pretty, that is their function. Simple as that.

My child is almost 11 wks old! She has been super smiley lately and sleeping a little longer at nights. We are hopeful she will be ready for vaca in a couple weeks and sleeping thru the night! Don't tell me if you don't agree... I prefer to stay in ignorant bliss. :) She laughs out loud for no reason and I love that about her. I also love that I can put big bows on her and since she is mine and can't talk yet...she can't tell me no. OH and her BM issues have gotten better the past few days. I doubt anyone reading this really wants to hear about bathroom stuff but when your lil one is having problems and they finally start going the bathroom without help then you will jump for joy and call your husband to tell him about it. She has gone 3 times within 5 days! Ok enough of that. Oh did I tell you she was sleeping in her bed? When she sleeps that is. Glad that pretty bed is gettin some use.
Looking up at dad who is tryin to make her smile...
It worked!

She gets distracted easily...who does that remind you of?
10 wks. - clearly annoyed with her mom. Hope it isn't a sign of things to come. Ok it prob is, who am I kidding?

CF - CrossFit is going well! Kicking my booty but it feels good to be doing something and it helps me wake up in the morning! I have enjoyed meeting some new girls and I am trying to get a friend to start going with me so I look forward to getting my heart, lungs and body in better shape. My knees are killing me when I run and my lungs seems to have jumped back in better than my body. Being a mom who is serving milk out of my body, who is large in the milk supply area, has been making running a challenge. 2 sports bras later I think I have figured it out, then another hump in the road. Another infection in the milk supply area. Seriously? 3rd time. I am so over infections.

Ok so here is a story to make anyone laugh or gasp. I realize boys are different than girls, especially 3 yr old boys but here is what took place as I pulled into my parents house yesterday. I am about to pull into the driveway and I see the lil boy that lives across the street walking on the sidewalk in front of his house, away from the house to the empty lot next door. I kinda wondered why he was out there alone but maybe his mom/dad were close by in the garage and I just didn't see them?? Ok so he starts to mess with his shirt pulling it up, and then I realize he is taking his pants down. ALL the way down. He then knelt down over a sewer and relieved himself. He smiled at me the whole time. I of course not being able to mind my own business told him if he needed to go potty that bad he should do it inside his house (that was right there), or in the grass but not in that water because it went out to the fishies and they didn't like potty in their water. Ok I realize as a new parent I will eat my words as my child grows, and I hope I dont offend anyone but the parents weren't there, and I think they should have been at least outside considering he is 3 and it he was basically in the stree. I also think he was doing it because he is a stinker. If it was out in the woods, or an emergency on the side of the road, or at the park or whatever when there is not a bathroom close is one thing, but in front of your house where I know there is a perfectly acceptable bathroom, pretty much in the street unsupervised, in the drain is another story. Come on people. I will say I did laugh really hard as I went inside to tell B what I had just seen. Maybe his parents were watching the whole time laughing or not caring, if each his own and not my problem. I kinda do kinda think we shouldn't urinate in the drain though.

On a little bit of a sad note: my grandad has had a mass on his leg for quite some time. We found out it is malignet (sp?) and so he starts treatment this week. They live down on a farm in SE Oklahoma and love it down there. They will be here though in the city for the next 5 wks while he does radiation and that is hard for them to not be able to go home. We will be taking him every day and hope that he might even do well enough that the treatment won't have to be the full 5 wks. We feel blessed because they think its contanied and the radiation will shrink it enough that when the doc goes in to take it out it will be done with. Say a lil prayer all goes well! They are happy though becaue they are getting to spend time with lil B!

Long post. Oops.

Love and Blessings,
