random thoughts

hmm what do i want to talk about?

ashton news:
-he scarfs down his oatmeal and gets mad when i take too long to put the spoon in his mouth.

-he rolls over in the middle of the night so he ends up sleeping on his tummy or his side (scary! i don't want him to suffocate!)

-his feet reach the ground when on his baby einstein activity center thing

-he sits on his bumbo although i don't think he likes it- he is always trying to get out of it

-he can't get out of his bumbo because his thighs are so huge and he gets stuck!

-he no longer is rocked to put him to sleep....i just put him down, wrap him up in his blankie, wrap him up again when he breaks free, wrap him up again when he breaks free and rolls over...for about 1 hr or so and then he'll eventually fall asleep....after grunting and crying of course

-he puts everything in his mouth

he is slowly starting to move. picture an inchworm moving....he uses his head to move and pushes with his legs

-he has been dunked under water in the Lehi pool- we are trying to teach him how to swim (video of that is on the camera- will post shortly)
-when he gets frustrated that he can't move, he moves like a fish out of water
-he likes to scrunch up his nose while breathing in and out (i think alisha has footage of that)
-he is babbling a lot more now...he says mamamama (which obviously means he loves me more) just kidding....he loves his daddy more

my life:

i would like a new diaper bag. mine is okay but not great. i think it is super cute however, it is so narrow that everything gets crammed and is hard to get stuff out without messing everything else up. there is hardly room for ashton's toys which is a major necessity. i guess i just didn't know what to look for in a diaper bag before i had a baby. in any case, there is one that i really ...like and would have gotten if they had it out when i was looking...does anyone else have any suggestions? i like big bags...i like to be overprepared....

also my mother in law came into town and she helped me get stuff for the guestroom/craft room. i have yet to set it up. we got a new bed to replace the queen we had in there- way too big for the room but needed when my parents came to stay with us when ashton was born. we bought a daybed and more of those craft cube organizers from scrapnstyle. i am working on setting it up this week so i can get some stuff done and not have to put stuff away everyday because i was working on the dining room table! thank you so much for all your help debra! you had such brilliant ideas!

lorin's life:

he works really hard. i guess he has had a lot of big projects and sometimes needs to work at home. ummmm what else does he do? i would ask him but he is still working....
