I write more on Facebook than here, so to try to re-cap the last 6 months here are some of my favorite status updates:
Jan 2: This time last year we were just a "table for two."
Jan 6: Get ready Micky Mouse. 21 Bogi are heading your way!
Jan 13: What to do on the last night in my 20's? How about watch a movie in bed and fall asleep by 10:30.
Jan 26: Lainey hit a milestone in gym today: she went thought the entire class without putting her mouth on any of the equipment!
Feb 6: Maybe I need a new 'do. When looking through a magazine with Lainey she pointed to Justin Beiber and said "mom"
Feb 22: Lainey will eat lotion, chapstick and soap and tonight she tried to chew a used diaper. And yet she doesn't want my cooking. What does that say?
Mar 1: Me: Lainey, where is your eye? Lainey: *points to her eye* Me: Where is your nose? Lainey: *puts finger in her nose* Me: Where is your mouth? Lainey: *puts said finger in my mouth*
May 17: Why do I bother to clean while Lainey's awake? I end up cleaning the same thing over and over. I've rubbed the counters so much I swear they're getting shorter
May 24: Cancun: I had about a million nachos, Mike had about a million margaritas and Lainey went down the waterside about a million times. We all got what we wanted.
May 30: Lainey now says no. It's the cutest, sing-songy no. I wonder when this will stop being cute.
June 26: Took Lainey to her first movie today. She laughed, sang, squealed and rode the arm rest like a horse. She had so much fun in fact, that we had to leave early.
A quote I read recently says "A good mom has sticky floors, a dirty oven and happy kids." That sure rings true for us....
Yep, that's us.
