Reading/Watching: I don't even know why I update this. Of course I'm not reading anything new besides books to Mia. Although if you ask us, Princess Potty is a real winner in this house. So, SO cheesy but Mia loves it and hopefully it's starting to pave the way in her brain to potty training (that's about as hard as I've pushed potty training, ha!)
I'm still lost in the world of Gilmore Girls. It will be a sad day when I finish the series. I've been guilty of letting Mia finish an episode with me if I'm watching when she wakes up from her nap, and now she will randomly ask me, "I sit couch, Girrrls?!" Oops!
Trying to: be more creative with Mia's hair. I thought I would keep her short bob forever, but I'm actually loving the longer bob on her, plus it gives us more freedom to do more fun stuff with her hair! Luckily she holds pretty still for me while I do it right now, so I need to take advantage! Why am I always the laziest with my hair and my family's? I'm pretty useless as a hairstylist in the Brinkerhoff home, ha!
Wishing: that my work life had picked up and moved to Arizona with me :) I'm extremely grateful that I get to spend my days with Mia instead of having to find work, but I do miss my one day "break" each week! We had the perfect set up as my parents watched Mia, I got to do all my favorite clients (and enjoy that creative outlet), while spending the day with my girls at my favorite salon. I miss the work, the people and the "break" away from home more than I thought I would! But again, I am so grateful that I don't have to put Mia in daycare to go work here in Arizona!!
Excited for: the second trimester! I am a couple weeks into it now and feeling alllll the relief! This is definitely my favorite part of pregnancy as I get my energy back, eat normal again, gain a cute, little bump that isn't horribly uncomfortable yet, feel baby movements for the first time (again, before they get horribly uncomfortable, ha ha!) and find out the gender of the baby! So many exciting things to look forward to in the next few weeks!
