Quick, before I get Sidetrack'd

Bits and Pieces

Here are a few random things that have been going on around here lately…

~Baby Girl stayed in the nursery this morning at BSF. It was the first time she’s stayed in a nursery. We both survived. In fact, she did great.

~Boo turned two last week. More on that when I get my act together and get pictures uploaded.

~Little and Boo go for their very first dentist appointments tomorrow. Should be interesting.

~We got new outdoor toys this weekend. The kiddos are having a great time playing in the backyard.

~Baby Girl has learned to roll from back to tummy over her left side.

~My best friend moves from 2 houses down to 20 minutes away next week. I can’t say that this makes me happy, but I’m excited to see her new house.

~Matt and I got to go out Friday night (thanks for babysitting, Mom and Dad!). All.by.our.selves.

~I’m contemplating buying a sewing machine again. Matt says I’m crazy and that I don’t have time to learn to sew (which is pretty accurate).

~I’m also considering taking up scrapbooking. Matt will probably say something very similar to his comments about sewing.

~We’ve planted a garden. Again, a post awaiting uploaded pictures.

~I’ve fallen off the “reclaiming my jeans” wagon this week. I need to get back on quickly! (so far I’ve lost about 5 pounds and several inches from my waist and lower abdomen, but I have a ways to go to get back into my jeans)

~Baby Girl has had a string of rough nights this week. We’re hoping to get a little more sleep sometime in the near future.

I think that’s about all I’ve got for now. More thorough posts to come soon assuming I can string together comprehensive thoughts.

Noise from the peanut gallery

  1. Get that machine and explore scrapbooking. It is so refreshing for a mom to have a creative outlet. The children can learn to play under you while you work, learning to respect your time and you! I learned to sew with little ones (of course, they weren’t quite as close as yours are). Go for it!!

  2. I am definitely on the band wagon for teaching you to scrapbook, but not the sewing part. I have to learn myself. I told Abbey about all of you new outdoor toys and she cannot wait to come over and play.

    Just for the record, Sophie said she wanted some squeaky shoes like Boo =).

  3. I am just focusing on the new house part and not the living 20 minutes from my best friend part. It will be hard but I doubt it will make us any less of friends! I’ll make my upstairs room a guest suite and then you can come stay anytime with your family…sounds good huh?

  4. Way to go on the weight loss! I look forward to reading about the birthday! I can’t believe Boo is two!
