15 Months

It's hard to believe that I have a full blown toddler on my hands. He's throwing me curve balls left and right, but I love how busy my life is with him. It's really hard to imagine what life is going to be like with a new baby and Grant to juggle, but I'm so excited to meet our new addition. Anyway I've been teaching Grant a few different words in sign language. It's crazy how much these little kids catch onto things so quickly. Even though I don't like to put him in front of the television, he has become quite attached to 'melmo' which is Sesame Street ( it all started with this video) So it's becoming a daily struggle to find things to entertain him with before I give in to Sesame Street, but I always always give to his adorable little finger pointing to the t.v.

Jeff started his internship on Monday with Senator Valentine. He has loved every minute so far and is learning a ton- and he gets to meet really 'cool' people. I'm not sure how I'd do in a job like that, but I'm glad that he is enjoying it so much. He's gone more than I'm used to him being gone, but it's only for 5 1/2 more weeks!

Little baby #2 is growing and growing. I've been a little down because my weight keeps going up and up and up!!! But I know that he's doing well and that's all that matters in the mean time. It's kind of depressing knowing that I still have 8 weeks left and I weigh a few more lbs now than I did when I delivered with Grant. (Yikes)

Speaking of weight and how am I going to loose it ALL after this giant baby is born- I ordered a double jogging stroller (yay) I can't believe how much I love BOB jogging strollers. They are just awesome and durable and make jogging possible- even with little children :) So I sold the single stroller and purchased a double!! Can't wait to test it out- and this time I'm getting a car seat adapter so we can use it as soon as I'm able to get out and run/jog/walk!
Thank You Ebay!!


Happy Birthdays!!

This is such a fun time of year for me and Jeff. We met 8 YEARS ago in drivers ed, right before we turned 16!  I can't believe it's been that long because I can remember every detail of the first day we met!  Jeff and I are only 40 hours apart. I really believe that we knew each other in heaven and couldn't be apart for too long, so we came to earth together :) I have so many fun birthday memories with Jeff throughout the years and they just get better and better. Jeff's birthday was on Sunday and mine was Monday. We celebrated ALL weekend though. We had fun date on Friday and went shopping on Saturday. We celebrated with Jeff's family on Sunday. Since we've been married we sort of 'share' our birthdays. Yesterday Jeff had an orientation at the state capitol for his internship, so I spent the day with my mommy. It was fun to spend it with her and brought back all the fun memories I have of her taking me shopping and out to lunch (I have the best mom in the world)!! Then we had yummy pizza and cake. After cake and ice cream my sisters, my mom and I watched the Bachelor while the guys watched the National Championship game. It was a fun fun day. We got home pretty late and it took me less than 2 minutes to fall asleep after laying down.
