currently...

It doesn't get more perfect than this! My little bestie!
Loving: watching Mia grow! It's crazy how one day things will just sorta click. One day Mia figured out how to pull herself into the standing position (major shocker to mommy and daddy). One day she figured out how to put herself into the sitting position (which makes nap time real fun). One day... well, you get the picture? My momma heart bursts with pride each time Mia figures out a milestone. Of course I think I have the smartest, strongest baby in the world! But at the same time, my momma heart breaks a little with each new milestone. Motherhood is such a trip. So much happiness mixed with a little sadness at all times!

Reading: I haven't been reading. But I've been unpacking books, does that count? :) I'm actually planning on reading a book (hopefully two) this week! I'll let you know how that goes...

Learning: that I just want to take taxi's for the rest of my life! Okaaaay, I don't mean that! But let me explain. We are selling our truck and this is the first time we've sold a vehicle. Let me tell you, people are idiots. Idiots, idiots, idiots. Including me! Eric and I are very loyal people, so, if someone says they want to buy our truck? We stop taking calls and texts of other interested buyers. Then said person turns out to be a J E R K and we choose not to sell him the truck, we've missed out on all the other interested buyers. (Lesson learned. We won't be cutting everything out until it's a done deal!) But then I get stupid texts from cheap people who offer ridiculously low dollar amounts that feel like a slap in the face. I guess it doesn't hurt to try, but they definitely get a big fat NO from us. Then they counter offering $100 more? They should have stopped at the first ridiculous offer. Luckily, we don't need to sell the truck so we can sit and wait until the right buyer comes along. But seriously, what. a. pain.

Trying to: hold true to my attitude change with Eric's job. Some days are more difficult than others, but for the most part? It gets a little easier each day to just let go. And my oh my, what a difference it's made in our marriage! I'm sorry it's taken me so long to figure things out, but the relief we all feel from this is just amazing! It feels good to be back to "us" again!

Wishing: time would slow down! I never realized why "moms" would say this until I had my own baby. The first 2 weeks of Mia's life felt like the longest and shortest weeks ever. Longest because I was so sleep deprived, healing from the most trauma my body has ever been through, and figuring out this brand new, tiny human being who was also trying to figure out life in her brand new body. And shortest because apparentely once you have a baby, time flies more quickly than ever before! Mia will be 8 months next week. E I G H T MONTHS! How is that possible?!

Excited for: the time I get to spend with Eric this week! We have a couple of FUN tiny getaways this week and they couldn't come soon enough. Like I said before... between work, moving and life we just haven't been able to spend much time together. I know that Mia is especially going to love her time with the both of us! She gets super hyper when she realizes she gets to play with us both! It's so cute :) I love my little family!

I love the instagram photo!! I'm hoping that your attitude change sticks around and that time will hold still for awhile so that you can enjoy Mia and I can live vicariously through you and enjoy her as well! Please give her the biggest kisses and snuggles from her Aunt Jamie in FL!!

Glad you and Eric have a few getaways planned! And I'm the same way when it comes to selling things...if someone is interested I wait on them to get back with me and miss opportunities. Guess manners are different when it comes to selling things!

OMG! They do grow so fast! It seems like yesterday that my blonde curly headed baby boy barely took up 1/2 a couch cushion! Now 23 years later, he just graduated from college cum lade I might add! :) and headed to grad school to get his doctorate degree in research psychology. And the heart bursting with pride NEVER goes away! Very proud of my baby boy.
You have a very happy, beautiful little girl!

time does go by fast but each day is a blessing and Mia will do more cute things every day as she grows. Like Julian is talking more clear and telling when he needs us to change his diaper and when he wants more milk ..is so great

Wow she is getting so big and even more gorgeous! This week has been a huge lesson for me in "people are jerks", but somewhere deep down I also know that most people are kind and loving and precious - just this week they seem to be few and far between!
