Quick update. P is huge. 100% huge. He is roughly 15 pounds and between 27 and 28 inches. I say between because he is about 3-1/2 months old and he was 27 at 3 months. Terrifying but awesome!
I have been busy busy busy at work. One of the girls in the office is leaving (::sniff sniff::) so we have all be frantically trying to learn her stuff since she isn't being replaced, they are just shifting things around and hiring a new admin. This does however mean that our current admin is staying (YAY!) and...she is moving into the HR dept! WHAT?! I know...so exciting!
Hubby has been great. P has been an adjustment for us both but we are settling into our groove. He is training for a half marathon. The same one we did last year together. But this year he is running it! I am so proud. A little disappointed that I cant be out there training with him but maybe next year!
We have been crazy busy lately, which of course, I love so I do have lots to share. Hopefully I can post about our many adventures, including the Texas State Fair and the Pumpkin Patch soon! But while you wait...you can enjoy this!

Anywho...just a quick update for today. So this week I am attending a Human Resources conference....
Quick note...I think it is weird that you say "a Human Resources" but "an HR" or did I just make that up and thats not actually the rule? Sometimes I just say it the way I think it sounds better...anyone else?
and it is crazy to think about that at this conference last year, I found out I was pregnant. Well not actually at the conference but that week. It happened on the 19th. I will save that story for then so be sure to check back. But it is just crazy how much things change in a year! This year I have a kid. This year Leslie is attending the conference with us! Just wild!
Thank you again for your kind words. I will keep to blogging and hopefully find out what is going on with my blog because I know you are dying for updated pictures of P!

*I had pictures but my blog is being finicky...boo!
During the first few weeks after P was born, I dreaded nighttime. Big time. During the day, I seemed to keep it together but once night time came, I was a mess.
P was a good sleeper from the get-go. He just liked his sleep, takes after mom and dad, I suppose. The problem was, is that he would spend most of the DAY sleeping and then at night, he was wide awake. I know having your days and nights mixed up is pretty common for babies but it really is tough. I never listened to anyone and go in the habit of "napping while he was napping" so unfortunately, come night time...I was tired and ready for bed. P on the other hand had been sleeping all
day and was ready to party! (party = stare at nothing while his parents acted a fool)
The swing was our saving grace throughout the first few weeks. Heck we still use it now for naptime but that is another post for another day. P LOVES the swing. We would get him fed, changed, burped, and calmed down and then we would "swing it out". Good times. Anyways, during all this, for some reason, the nights would make me very lonely and depressed. Waking up in the middle of the night. Sitting in a dark house with a crying baby, trying to figure out how to console him was tough. Very tough. As he got older, things did get easier and as I figured out how to comfort him, that depression slowly faded away. A week or so before I started back to work, Hubby and I decided to try and get P into a bedtime routine. Nothing concrete, just paving the way for a consistent schedule. Feeding times were still up in the air, but we knew if nothing else, we could give him a bath at somewhat the same time every evening and just go from there.
This started our nightly routine and is now my absolute favorite time of the day. We call it our BBB.
We start with a bath..
Then "supper". Interrupt that 'B' how you will...
I rock P until he is falling asleep and then into the crib he goes. When he is full and happy and just lays on my shoulder, I can't imagine being anywhere else. I often use this time to pray and count my blessings and just relish in the time that I can spend with him when he is willing and able to just lay and snuggle-bug on me because I know, especially with a little boy, those times won't be around for forever.

Today is my good friend Jenilee's birthday! YAY! Jenilee and I met 7 years ago...geeze...I can't believe it has been that long. Her and her boyfriend at the time, Scuba Steve, had just moved to Texas for Steve's job as a DJ for The Liz Wilde Show. My Hubby (well of course he wasn't my Hubby at the time...we actually didn't even know each other) was getting his demo together, had given away his cat, had started packing his things, and was ready to hit the road to find a radio job outside the DFW area. He happened to bump into to Steve and Mick (another guy from The Liz Wilde Show) and I'm sure it was more involved but ultimately they offered him a job! (little did I know I would meet him a few months later)

So I make Hubby 2 sandwiches every morning, peanut butter & jelly for breakfast and turkey for lunch....we are exciting, I know. Well the past few mornings, after I'm done I have looked around and realized that the silverware drawer is still open, dishwasher is partially cracked, cabinets where the baggies live is still open, pantry is open...the list goes on and on! What is my deal?! I need to work on this before it becomes a habit and frankly I need P to be on my side when it comes to making the bed.
There is one thing I know I will never compromise on though, and that is the toilet seat lid. I apologize for all of you who leave yours up but that is f-ing disgusting. So this might be just as weird as my being grossed out by getting my feet wet thing (for another post entirely)...but it TOTALLY, ABSOLUTELY, 100% grosses me out when I go into a bathroom and the lid is up. I don't know why, I mean I have to lift it anyways to actually use it...but something about walking in and immediately staring into the abyss that is your personal poop palace just makes me queasy. Oh also...black toilets...I mean ew, just ew.
So I have talked about the bathroom two days in a row...it is just a coincidence, I promise it wont become a habit.
I will leave you with this because I know it will make your day, just like it did mine!
*So I almost just published this post without spell checking...EEK...y'all would have be embarrassed for me...I am pretty much at a 3rd grade spelling level.
