I was talking with a new friend the other day. She has a son that is about a year now. We were talking about how when your pregnant and you gain 50 pounds people say, "You're growing and feeding another life! Don't worry about the weight." Then 2 months after birth and you have your jello stomach hanging over your jeans people say, "You had a baby 2 months ago! Take it easy." Then at 5 months when the jello is still there they say, "You're breastfeeding! You have to have enough for both of you." But then you get to the point when you're not breastfeeding, it's been 10 months, sure it's a lot to take care of a kid, but that jello is still hanging over those jeans and there's no "justifying" it anymore. I won't admit that I'm at that point... but I am. ha.
Which leads me to my next story about this morning. I slept through my alarm to get up and go work out. When I woke up at 7:30 and realized this I woke up MT telling him how mad I was that I slept through the alarm. My thoughtful husband said, "I can go into work whenever I want. Go workout now." Then, I was so mad at him for saying that. I wanted to tell him to be up all night with a baby and then go workout. Anyway, in my anger I got up and went to work out and realized that I wasn't mad that I had slept through my alarm. I was in fact glad that I did so I got more sleep and was pretending like I was mad that I didn't get to work out. Wow, I'm reading this over and I'm really confused by the whole story. I think I'm crazy. Anyway, I ended up thanking MT for being helpful and making me work out. I'm not sure why I wrote this last paragraph. Oh well.
Henry has had his first cold. I can brag about pretty much everything he does- except for how he handles being sick. To say the least, he's being a big baby. ha. But I feel really bad for him. It's hard when you can't suck on your binky and breath through a runny nose. I think we're over the worst part though. I only had to get up 3 times last night. I feel bad for me too if you you can't tell ;) Despite being up in the middle of the night this past week I was able to pull off 13 loaves of bread and 120 cinnamon rolls on Saturday! It all went really well. Thanks to all those who ordered! I'm really excited to do it again.
Alright, alright, I'll get to the pictures already. Here are some videos and things from the past little bit. Enjoy!

I'm just posting this to make me feel like I'm on top of things. Sorry for it's lameness. First, let's talk about some things on my mind lately.
1. Why do I shave my legs. Seriously, I only did it in high school because I played volleyball and people made me. I do it now because it's a social norm but seriously it's so annoying.
2. The cycle of making new friends. Most of us do it over and over again. From elementary to middle school, to high school, to college, to marriage, to graduate school... It's just a lot, and it's hard. I really like the new friends we're making but sometimes I just wish I could keep all my old ones.
3. Space. I talked to Morgan (Thomas) the other day. I think we decided if there was ever a mission to be the first people to live in space, we'd want to be part of it.
4. Money. Why is it that the one thing that's supposed to not matter actually does. I wish it didn't. Then I could go to Disneyland all the times I want. Then I could go see family whenever I want. Then I could buy all of our food pre-made. Too good to be true. I know.
He loves the playground in our back yard. Believe it or not AZ folks but it does get kind of chilly at night. It's pretty crazy. And so nice. Have I mentioned that this place is amazing?!!!! The weather, people, playgrounds, swimming pools- just awesome.
Henry is very good at making friends :) Eden and Johnny are 3 months older than him so he tries to keep up. They're really fun to have around!
