Two Things

Monday, April 26, 2010

1.  Paisley has now said “Da Da”, “Elle” & “pup”.  My feelings are officially hurt.

2.  My living room looks like Toys R Us threw up all over it.

I Quit

Monday, April 19, 2010

It’s official.  Being a full time employee, wife, & mother of 2 is not simple.  My poor blog is nearly abandoned.  The time to sit and blog is nearly non-existent.  It makes me very sad, but for some reason Joe says that is not enough reason for me to quit my day job.  Joe’s mean.  Today I decided to catch you all up on the past week, but I only have time for bullet points.  Please forgive me.

  • My legs are sooo sore.  One Saturday Joe & I did a bunch of yard work.  Which included pulling a TON of ivy from the side of our house.  I kinda want to hunt down whoever decided that planting ivy there was a good idea.  Ivy on a house with siding is not a good idea.  After wrapping up the lawn, we moved on to cleaning out the garage.  It looks great now.  In fact, Joe keeps poking his head into the garage to just look at how clean it is.
  • While cleaning out the garage Elle found a box of her snow clothes.  She proceeded to put on the snowsuit, stocking cap, and mittens…and go play in her sand box.  It was classic Elle, folks.
  • Paisley is about 10 seconds from figuring out how to crawl.  I continue to be amazed at how polar opposite she & Elle are.  Elle just sat there like a bump on a log until about 10 months.  Paisley is ALL OVER THE PLACE.  She’ll pull anything down onto her head to get a better look at it.  DaDa may be the only word she ever speaks.  Elle had 200 words by her 1st birthday.
  • We’re about 2 weeks from my most stressful time of year at work.  I need to scrounge up about 40 more volunteers.  Maybe “scrounge” is a bit of a harsh word.  I need to inspire about 40 more people to volunteer.  That better?
  • I know I keep saying this but seriously, Joe is NEARLY finished with my new blog design.  Leave a comment about how excited you are, maybe it’ll push him to get this one last tweak finished.  (Love you, babe!)

Skinny(ish)

Monday, April 12, 2010

Lots of people that I love are having babies for the first time this summer (see here, and here).  I’m super excited for each of them, I’m super excited for my daughters because it means more cousins for them (and for me too, because technically Jim’s baby will be my cousin)…BUT I’m super excited for myself too.

I was the first in my group of siblings to have a baby and I was still the only one to have a baby when I had Paisley.  However, this summer I plan on basking in the fact that they are all going to be super pregnant & uncomfortable…and for the 1st time EVER I’ll be the skinny(ish) one.  Last weekend I told them all that I may just walk around in my swimsuit the whole summer.  This may have been a bit of a stretch considering I LOATH swimsuits (Who doesn’t, right?), but my self esteem may be a little higher this summer.  If you see me with a little jump in my step, you’ll know why.

Oh!  Baseball season is officially underway, so I’m sure I’ll have much more free time on my hands so expect more blog posts 🙂  Joe hopes to have my new blog design ready in the next day or two.  Paisley will officially be part of our blog family soon (poor kid).

Easter Weekend Pics

I feel like you all need to see pictures of the girls.  It seems like it’s been a while since I’ve shown pics.  Have I mentioned that I love my camera???
