Well...Where Did January Go?
The past few weeks have been busy. Not our normal busy though. A stomach bug hit me and left me energy less for a few days. Logan is great though and fed the kids for me, haha. Anyways, here a look at the rest of our January.
I realized the other day that it was ten years ago this month that I found out I was pregnant with this boy right here. 10. T E N. 10. Wow. We had a lot of emotions going on the night we found out we were expecting. I was so excited and nervous with the results of the first test, that I went to take a second one and completely forgot to use it. I remember rambling on and on about every little thing. Looking back at my reaction, it was funny and probably a typical reaction of a 16 year old girl. I am so amazed at how this boy has grown and I am so incredibly blessed. I know the next 10 years will be just as amazing to me and I can't wait to see how his personality develops as he becomes an adult.
These pictures were taken on a near perfect evening after school. It's not typical for a warm-shirtless-play-in-the-mud-day in January, but thats what we got. The kids just loved playing in the mud and they made a damn and used the mud as face paint.
Jase wasn't ready to come in, but he loved the nice warm bath.
Jase is still breastfeeding, but it will soon come to an end.
It's rare I get a little alone time with this girl. We enjoyed an early morning cuddle while watching cartoons before Jase woke up.
This year I decided I was going to invest more time in myself. I'm always busy with the kids and don't take enough time for myself. I want to read more and do the things I enjoy with the people I enjoy being with. I got to spend part of my Saturday with my Mom and sister shopping. I always feel guilty going somewhere without Logan and the kids, but I really enjoyed my time.
My bedroom doesn't look all that great yet and I'm just dying to finally buy us a bedframe, but doesn't my baby look so cute in it?
Nikolai finally mastered the double knot!!
Just a few pictures of us!
My jalapeno pepper plant produced its second pepper, and I picked it too late! But aren't the colors beautiful?
We also got to have a lunch date with Aunt Amber, Alice, and Jack.
I love those days I can devote to cleaning the house. A clean house can improve my mood, more than almost anything.
Some days I get in the pick up line a little too early and Alexandria switches seats. I thought it was humorous that two days in the same week she ended up in the exact same position.
