*It's a weird feeling, to be playing computer games with my husband, my brother, and his friends. I feel very out of place & old. But still fun. (And to be hearing Mr. Wickham's voice through Eric's microphone on Skype.)
*I get tired of eating out so much. Kris' parents eat out a lot, and I think I'd much rather cook for us and eat at the house, than eat out all the time. I get worried that Alaise is getting more and more used to salty & fried foods.
*I never thought I'd love nursing. I still don't, really. But one time during the day, I do love - around midnight, when I dream feed Kai before I go to bed. I love that he's mostly asleep, curled up, not getting distracted by anything and everything. I cherish being able to just look at him, and enjoy his small-ness that will not last very much longer.
*Speaking of nursing, I never thought I'd be nursing full time at 5 months. Praise the Lord.
*Speaking of the Lord, we are going to dedicate our babies at church on Mother's Day. I'm really excited. Although it seems to be an "American church" thing, I read a short documentation that our pastor wrote up, and I really like his view on it. And even if it is just a church-y thing, I'm excited to participate in it.
*I am SO unmotivated to do house work these days. Being a clean & tidy wife is so unmotivating... Dishes will be there tomorrow, whether I do them today or not. Same thing is true with all the chores. I put it off, and put it off. How do some women keep their house clean & tidy 24/7? I just can't seem to. I'd much rather enjoy my (luke warm at best) coffee and a show on Hulu... I guess that makes me a lazy wife.
*I love my husband. This October will be our 10 year anniversary of being together, and he still makes my heart warm & fuzzy. And he's willing to do painful things for me. It was heartbreaking to see him in pain.
*I never realized how big a year and a half olds were. I thought kids Lacey's age were like... Three. She's grown so much, it's insane.
*I can't seem to get my Genovese basil to grow very well in a pot. The sweet basil, on the other hand, seems to be doing better. My cucumber plant totally wilted and died without sprouting a single new leaf. The tomatoes seem to be flourishing. Not too much success with the grass seeds. Lavender doesn't seem to be doing too well either... I'm thinking it needs a bigger pot.
*We cleaned up our sun room and WE LOVEEEE IT. LOVE IT. LOVE IT.
*I wish we could turn off AF when we're done having kids. It's very inconvenient.
*Speaking of, I think it is slightly unfair that AF came back so quickly. So much for breastfeeding delaying fertility. I'm not so lucky.
*I definitely think the birth certificate for Obama is relevant. But not to a point of sending out emails about the serial number of it and stuff. It's just not going to make a difference at this point, one way or another. I'm tired of hearing about it. (They talk about it on The View almost every single morning, for Pete's sake.)
*I am super excited about our first Farmer's market trip this Saturday. Maybe they will have yummy blueberries. Alaise LOVES blueberries.
*Milano cookies - I adore you.
*Purchased leggings for the first time. We'll see how they fare. On that note, I'm needing new jeans. SMALLER jeans. :D My size 8s are too big anymore to look nice.
