Thank you very much to my friend Sarah for letting me borrow her stuff. I had so much fun making the biggest mess in my kitchen, and this cute little cake. Anyway, it was great to see family and celebrate our beautiful little girl.
Olivia also went in the pool for the first time. I'm not sure if I already blogged this or not, so I will tell you again... Last Thursday we got O all ready for the pool with a little swimmer diaper that was entirely too big, lots of sunscreen, and her cute little bikini top (which may be inappropriate for an infant, but figured it was more modest than the nakie alternative). We got in the water and she was calm and serene as could be. She just loved it. By the time I got done taking pictures and finally got in the water myself, it started to rain! So we quickly got out and got into the house. But it was fun while it lasted. I'm glad she loves the water.
In other news, I decided to run a 5K in Flagstaff in June. This is in preperation for a Sprint Triathlon to take place possibly in October. I really want to get back into shape and this is the most fun way I have found to push myself. That and purchasing a WiiFit first thing tomorrow.
Well that's about all the going's on around here lately. The schedule thing is coming along. Thank you for your book recomendations. Right now I think O is having a major growth spurt because she has been eating every two hours like clock work, and taking more naps during the day and still sleeping like a champ at night. Oh and she giggled for the first time on Friday. She only did it once, and despite trying as hard as I can I haven't been able to get her to do it again.
Oh... and I had my piano recital last night. Yes, I barely started piano lessons about a year and a half ago, but I have learned so much in this past year. I played the Winnie the Pooh theme song. I have to laugh at my recitals because my teacher teaches a large range of students, the youngest about 5 and then there's me, 23. I think the 5 year old played a more complex peice than I did. And I messed up 3 times. I always get so nervous. I feel like everyone in the room is like, "Oh an older person, she's probably going to play something she composed herself... or something really hard." And then I pound out and stumble on "Winnie the Pooh". Ohhh good times.
And I think that's it for real, this time.

My other worry now is if I should be trying to get Olivia on a schedule during the day. So far I've been pretty much on demand... she's eating her hands and fussing I know she's hungry, she's crying and rubbing her eyes I know she's tired, and I change her diaper with just about every feeding. No rhyme or reason to this schedule whatsoever. Any input? When was your baby on a schedule? There's so much research each and every way, I have no clue. I know each baby is different, and I'm trying to trust my mommy instincts. But I worry. That's what I do.

Today is my mom's birthday. In honor of her I will list five great things about my mom.
1 - She always thinks of her kids first, no matter what.
2 - Went out and got a job to help send her kids to college.
3 - Even though her kids make some decisions she doesn't understand, she supports them in the end.
4 - She loves her kids more than anything, and we all know it!
5 - She's not only a great mom, but a great friend.
Love you mom. Happy Birthday.

MommyHere you are, absolutely done trying on blessing dresses. You can't sit up on your own yet, but this dress was poofy enough to hold you up!
Here you are getting ready to go to your first baseball game.
And here you are on your two month birthday with your cousins. The look you are giving me is priceless.

Olivia's first Major League Baseball game. So fun. She was an angel.
Helping Douger move from Tuscon back to Mesa. Not so fun. She was a devil... well that's a little harsh but she's got herself a little cold, and wasn't happy to be in the car.
Mother's Day. Aaron made me breakfast. Chocolate chip waffles with strawberries and whip cream. Yummy.
House hunting continues.
And housework at home never ends :)
Happy Mother's Day everyone!

Sure, she may be just a small aquatic crustacean, but the female sea louse is No. 1 on our list and here's why. First, she's lured by the male into his bachelor burrow for mating where -- surprise! -- she discovers that she's actually in a harem with 25 other pregnant females! If that wasn't bad enough, once the babies are ready to be born, they make their way into the world by eating her from the inside out. Worst. Childbirth. Ever.
Makes an epiosotomy sound like a pinic.. well maybe that's a poor choice of words.

We looked at a house today, well tonight really. Let me tell you, looking at bank owned property after dark is scary. Extremely. This particular house probably would have been scary in daylight. It said vacant on the listing so our realtor (Aaron's cousin) took us. Flashlights in hand (the kind you have to shake to get the battery charged, because that's all Ammon could find) we left at 8:00pm. We pull up and the exterior of this house is charming. Citrus trees, roses bushes, and a little front porch. Backyard is a nice size, with a nice fenced in pool. We try to get in, but Shawn's (realtor) ekey realtor thing is expired, since it's already so late they switched the numbers for the next day or something. Meanwhile he has his wife and two kids with him who are 3, and 5 months. They are not happy. It's late. I feel bad. So then we finally do get inside and it's scary. First thing to hit me is the smell. Pee. Gross. And it looks like it's still sort of, kind of occupied. Sean calls out, "Hello?" and my heart is seroiusly racing. There's just junk every where. Like a single high heeled shoe on the kitchen counter. Old quilts and bedspreads. Garbage. Pots and pans. I try to see the potential. Nice tile floors. Reccently painted... but painted over some weird bamboo wallpaper. Nice kitchen. Marble tile countertops. Interesting. Then there's the bedrooms. One is hot pink with writing with marker on the walls. Teenager's room I'm sure. Then there's two more. One smells so horrific I don't even go inside. One is filled with bedspreads. Then there's the master. It's a good size. The bathroom is small. I don't think there's a walk in closet. And then there's a huge cockroach in the bathroom. This is what freaks me out the most. I am ready to leave. Meanwhile Aaron is falling in love with this house. Yes, you read correctly. The smell, the creepy-ness, the roaches... don't seem to mind. It's a good price, in a good neighborhood and somehow feels right to Aaron. We agree to go back in daylight. Maybe then I can see what Aaron sees.
