112th post

Once again, I have waited at least two weeks to blog. I am on such a roll.

It is 6:24 am and there is no strange reason for me to be up this early. When fall rolls around, for some reason, Cooper wakes up earlier, waayyy earlier. I will never understand. I already miss the 14 long days of summer. Don't you agree thats about how many we have here in the indecisve land of Utah? Totally. I can't complain though cause heaven knows how much I obsess over autumn.

May I start out with the hugest news in the history of the world????? Coop actually peed on the toilet. ON THE TOILET. That day was a wonderful day...there were almost tears of joy. But I didn't allow myself to get my hopes up. And good thing I didn't cause he's peed on the toilet maybe twice since then. Awesome.

Reese has been keeping things extremely real for me as of lately. I don't know what switch went off in her head, but I must say the baby that I once new was a far sweeter version of the girl that I know I now. It might be the teething. She's chewing on her little hands constantly, she gets fevers like they are going out of style, she will not, under any circumstances, let me put her down, and she wants to take like 4 teeny tiny naps a day. I will just continue telling myself it's a phase. It's a phase.....

I had a great weekend. Any time spent with family from Canada is great. Besides this weekend, the kids the I have had a pretty laid back couple weeks. Good thing I have a few pictures to look back on, or else I would forget everything...since I do forget everything.

Last week we hit up the pumpkin patch. I love the pumpkin patch. Coop was giddy when he saw that the tractor he sat on last year was there still. IMG_0055 web

This is the #1 reason I love daybreak. Coop's got some good buds here.

There is no other reason for posting these, other than they melt my heart.

"Growing Old Is Getting Old"

I can't get this seriously awesome Silversun Pickups song out of my head. When I like a song, I listen to it over and over again until I can't bear it anymore. I seem to run everything into the ground. My problem is that I can only do it one thing at a time. One song at a time, one interest at a time, I can't talk on my phone and do anything else at the same time. I'm a one track mind kinda gal. Kudos to all you people who can do everything at once.

This is why I despise blogging. I never seem to write about the interesing things that go on our lives. I write about the miniscule, mindless thoughts that pop into my head. Then I think, holy...why did I write about that? I should delete it. Then sometimes I don't, and all you lucky people get to hear about it.


As I'm sure everyone else is, I'm enjoying the colder weather. I'm in a clean my house, stay inside and eat food, watch gilmore girls kind of mood. And it seems like I've done just that a whole lot lately. I'm such a home body.

The first rainy day last week, we ventured out to the library to pick up a new load of books for the kids. Before getting into the car Coop ran out into the alley and basked in the rain for a bit. These are seriously the only measley pics I've taken forever, so enjoy.

Check out these ridiculously cute bloomers that my talented friend Karrie made for me. There is a dress that goes with them, but the bloomers are cute by themselves, don't you agree? Nothing compliments her chubalicious body better.

Poor Reese has had a rough couple weeks. It started out with a literal bang, as I accidentally rammed my camera right into her brand new tooth and chipped the crap out of it. Way to go, me. Then she got some sort of eye infection last week which made it hard for her to see out of her goopy eyes and hard for me to look at her goopy eyes. She's good now, and back to her spunky, active self.
