  • 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 :)

Yay for an awesome update! Sounds like you've been keeping busy! I've missed your blogging too! I've been slacking off too...maybe I should get on that!

Wow, you have been very busy. I am so glad you are blogging again and I love the pictures. Naomi is just too cute and getting so big. She just looks like a little girl now and not a baby at all. Weren't those K-9's the worst! Brady was so cranky and finally they popped through and he is back to his old self again. Ugh, we still have two more to go on the bottom.
