I feel like I need to blog. When I go too long I feel like I must be missing something. And I really do look at this as my journal, and that's probably why I worry.
Life is busy. As usual. We went up to Salt Lake last weekend to relax and visit Jon's best friend from high school-Curtis. It was a lot of fun. They have a cute little girl, and his sis that we stayed with also has a cute little girl and so we had 3 sweet little girls running around and having a great time all weekend. Oh! And the weather was SOO nice! Somehow, I didn't take a single picture. Ooops.
While in Salt Lake I also had the opportunity to meet Jessa's new little baby boy and take his picture. I just love to snuggle newborns. And they smell SOO good. Mmmmm.
I'm trying desperately to catch up on editing. It's happening slowly but surely.
I've recently become an herbal tea drinker. I've always enjoyed it every now and again, but lately I have a few cups a day. It really helps my throat and nose (which, as usual are all upset from allergies). I've found a "throat coat" and an echinacea kind that is delicious steeped together. And it's a great way to get my daily dose of local honey.
Paisley has been doing much, much better. I think maybe she was just going through some painful teething because she's really mellowed out again. She loves to hug me and give me kisses-and I love to hug her and give her kisses too! She is 100% fearless at the pool, and will jump into the deep end before I can get there to catch her! She is getting more and more grown up every day. She now knows how to climb onto the chairs at the table and insists on sitting there, she likes to use big girl cups, and she's really grown more accustomed to her big girl bed. Realizing that she's going to be 2 next month is still really crazy to me-it seems like she's always been here, but at the same time like she was born yesterday.
Everyone around me is having babies. Which leads to continual discussions about diapering, breast-feeding and the like. It's so strange to me that I nursed for the whole year, which wasn't that long ago, but seems like forever ago...and I do miss it. I like snuggling little babies.
And last, but not least-I'm totally going to see The Little Mermaid at Tuacahn tonight. And my dear sweet husband is coming with me. The best part? We're totally going on a scooter date-which we haven't done in a really long time and I'm super excited. I'll try and be naughty and snap a picture to post!
