Some notes on a Friday

I'm up before both girls!!! This is weird.  I keep staring at them on the monitor wondering why they've blessed me with all this free time. So here I am with my random thoughts.

~ Painting still sucks, but it's coming along. So far we've finished the family room, the eat-in area, the kitchen, entry way, downstairs hallway, and Emerson's room. Almost done with the half bath, but after two coats of paint I decided to change the color scheme so it's back to square one. I hate myself.

~ I'm back on My Fitness Pal. How do non-breastfeeding people do it?? Calories go so fast! But it really works. I've lost 7lbs since I started it - wahoo! Still have 15 to go though to get back to pre-pregnancy weight. Not wahoo.

~ I have yet to find a food that is not more delicious with sriracha sauce on it. I don't know why it took me so long to discover the most amazing condiment since the invention of condiments.

~ Coffee. God, it's glorious.

~ Anna has been sleeping in 6-7 hour stretches - if you know how sleep deprived I was with Emerson, you know this is a huge accomplishment. My darling Em (who to her credit is a wonderful sleeper now) never slept more than 4 hours in a row (except two random times) until we sleep trained her at 5 months.

~ I have daughters. Two children. Two girls. This concept still blows me away every single day.

~ Emerson knows so many words now it's starting to freak me out. She talks non-stop (I am sure this is retribution for how much I talk to everyone ever). We now have to spell things around her, because if we say anything out loud, she immediately wants it. Yesterday I misspelled the word kitchen when referring to her playset upstairs. Yikes. I guess her vocabulary boom will be good for all of us.

Alright, that's enough randomness for now. Anyone want to come paint my house??? Haha, I'm kidding <--- I'm really not. I'm about 2 days away from hiring some nomad off of Craigslist.


  1. You are losing weight like a champ! I need to start breastfeeding...maybe that will help me?? haha

  2. Go you! Enjoy your peace and quiet! & I need to try this siracha!
