101 Things in 1001 Days

>> Tuesday, February 22, 2011

Well, it's only been 3 months since I wrote this list... I kept meaning to post it on here, to hopefully keep myself accountable, as well as giving myself something to blog about. We've finished 11 goals so far, which isn't bad, right? Thanks, Autumn, for teaching me how to do strike-throughs! That'll give you an idea of some of the things I'll be blogging about next, if I can ever get into the groove.

What are your goals? Are any of them the same as mine? I'd love to hear about them! I'll cheer you on, if you cheer me on!

(And now I'm going to go lie down since both of my boys are sleeping! Yes!)


What's been going on...

>> Monday, February 21, 2011

I've been on an extended hiatus from this blog, so kudos to you, if you are actually reading this! For a while I just decided it wasn't worth my time to post on here anymore (which is probably still true...) but lately I just keep thinking, "Oh, I could put that on the blog," so I'm just going to go with it!

I wrote a 101 Things in 1001 Days list this year instead of my regular New Year's resolutions, and have been meaning to post it for the last month and a half. Maybe if I keep track of it on this blog, I'll feel a little accountability and actually remember to look at the list once in a while, and get something done! I'll try to post it soon, and you can see what I'm working on for the next 2.5 years. :)

But here's what I've been working on lately:

This sweet little boy is a month old today (though he was only 8 days in this picture). We are loving him!

My 2 year old is loving him a little too much... He keeps trying to pick him up when I'm not looking. Today I ran (literally) out of the room to put something away, and ran back just in time to see Big Brother pick up then accidentally drop Baby Brother! I'm pretty sure I screamed. The baby seems to be fine though. Good thing 2 year olds aren't very tall, so he didn't have far to fall.

I love this little boy! Even if he is constantly getting into mischief.
