  • I've been reading, but not as much as a few weeks ago
  • I've been working on pictures again - taking and editing and sorting.  Feels kinda nice
  • I've started running again.  Decided to train for the Teton Dam 10K.  Not a half marathon like last year - I wish I had started training 4 weeks sooner so I could have run that.
  • I've been surprised and happy how easy it's been to get back into shape.  For the most part, anyway.
  • We've been talking and thinking about baby number 2.
  • I've been thinking more and more about baby number 2.  Maybe I'm ready?  Maybe I'm not?
  • Naomi has been the sweetest thing since her top two K-9 teeth have come in.  I knew she was in there somewhere
  • Naomi has discovered her love for salt and vinegar chips
  • She still takes 2 naps maybe once a week, but mostly down to one these days.
  • She is trying to say so many words, I only understand most of them because she points while saying it.  
  • I love it when she says "Mama"  The tone she uses :)
  • Jaren has been working like crazy.  It seems every year I see him less and less during farming season.  
  • I've been buying loads of home/home decor magazines and have been cutting out things and writing down ideas because I want to be prepared when the day comes to build.  Someday in the next few years.  I hope.
  • I have been making quite a few trips to Twin Falls to see Nathan, Stephanie, Conner and the recent addition - Jayden.
  • I have also been working on a "Quiet Book" for Naomi for church so she will be distracted enough to stay in Sacrament meeting.  I'm tired of taking her out in the hall!
  • I can't seem to enjoy folding and putting away laundry, but I love my new washer and dryer!
  • Naomi has finally overcome her fear of the windshield wipers
  • Naomi has picked up a new fear of yelling/screaming.  Any yelling/screaming on T.V. get's a whine and a drop down to the floor with her head shaking "no" over and over till it goes away.  Ugh.  I don't know where it came from.
  • I have found running with a stroller is 5 times harder than running without one.
  • I have felt a bit socially deprived.  I miss hanging out with friends.  
  • I have been obsessed with Mindy Gledhill's album Anchor.  Fantastic.  Beautiful voice.  Saw her in concert and it was better live than on the album.
  • I have been eating loads of dried apples.  Yum Yum.  My Daddy's dried apples to be exact.  
  • Naomi discovered another love:  Red Peppers.  To my surprised and delight.  
  • I have been trying to go to bed in the 10 o'clock hour.
  • I have been trying to decide if I want to cut bangs again or not.  I hate that they get in my eyes.  I'm trying to decide if I look old without them.
  • I have been trying to get myself to blog.  Hopefully I can do at least once a week, then build up from there.  I miss it.
We like to play Peek A Boo
She really didn't want to pose
Except for when I'm behind the camera :)
