The Week In Review

- I love Thursdays. Thursday is my "we've almost made it" day. There's still one more day until the weekend, so if I didn't get everything done that I wanted to do during the week, there's still one more day until Big Fun Daddy is home for 2 whole days of fun, fun, fun. If it's been a long week, there's only 1 more day until Big Fun Daddy is home for 2 whole days of fun, fun, fun. I always feel like I'm winning when it's Thursday.

- Running is still going great. My ankle/foot feels really good when I run, which is awesome. It continues to bother me in real life, though. Sigh. I feel it when I sleep on my side, or sit on the floor, or walk around a lot in fun summer shoes.

- Declan is growing like crazy. Can't believe we're almost at 4 months and 2/3 of the way to solid foods. It's so easy to just breastfeed, and I'm really lazy. I also can't believe we've had thrush for more than 13 weeks. I mean, really.

- On the bright side, I'm down 12 lbs in 7 weeks. I've now run my way out of 2 pairs of shorts, I'm off this weekend to get another smaller pair. YAY!, and CRAP!, all at the same time. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy to see the scale moving in that direction, I just wish I didn't have to spend my $$$ to buy a new pair of running shorts every couple of weeks. And the weird thing is, I now weigh less than I did before I got pregnant with Talia, but my shape has changed so much that not many of my pre-Talia clothes fit. Hrmph.

- M'girl is not growing like crazy, but turning into a big girl more and more everyday. She speaks in sentences all the time now. We've been really potty training for the last 3 days and she's doing great with it. We'll see if she keeps it up or if we have another potty strike on the horizon. This time her little friend at Daycare is also hittin' the pot, so maybe the 2 of them together will figure it out this time.

- Talia has fallen madly in love with Elmo. I have developed a huge hate for Elmo. Perhaps part of the problem is that we only watch the same 4 episodes that are currently on video on demand. I am so tired of learning about the Wild Wild West, Bathtime, Wild Animals, and Exercise. And that's only with letting her watch 1 or 2 episodes (14 minutes each) a day!

- My boss called today to talk about a couple of work situations. I love that she keeps me in the loop and calls me in from time to time when I'm on mat leave. A year is a long time to be out of the game, yo. It was fantastic to use my brain this afternoon for something other than "when was the last time Tally peed?" or "can I get away with not washing diapers for one more day?"

- We got my parents a new computer last weekend when we were home. Watch out world, Grampy & Grammie have been unleashed upon the "Interweb" once again.

- And for those of you who missed it on Facebook (Donni, I'm talking to you here) - here's Talia blowing bubbles:

OMG! I am by myself in my apartment laughing out loud like a crazy lady at this video right now - hilarious!

Thanks for thinking of your non-Facebook friend. I am teetering right on the edge of Fb right now. My friend Dan and I have had a long standing "I'll go on it when you go on it" deal and he's finally caved, so maybe I am next very soon.

Talk soon!
