some things on my mind in this new year...

Photobucket

1. I am back. I have been seriously unplugged and it has been wonderful. I am very much 'plugged in' on most days but to take a week to have your phone on silent and no internet connection in sight is pretty lovely. If I didn't get so much enjoyment out of my blog I would seriously consider a telegram only policy... Okay sorry I am rambling... I might have forgotten how to blog.

2. So as I was saying... a new year. I feel like so much is changing and shifting right now which is why I thought I would take a second to snap a photo of Henry's favorite shoes. These little froggie rain boots have been on H's feet for many of my favorite mom moments. And they have officially been retired. Although I want so badly to squeeze his little feet in them one more time I know we need to move on and find a new pair for a new year. I think I am nostalgic because he starts school tomorrow. His first day! I have been really excited but when I see the froggie shoes sticking out of the 'too small box' I get sad.

3. If you are wondering why this is the most random post ever. Here is #3 "things on my mind" I am pregnant. 12 weeks pregnant and I feel so sick. I have been barfing my brains out. The most pregnant moment ever was a couple days before Christmas when I was crying singing 'Santa Claus is Coming to Town' to Henry while we were driving, I stopped at a stop sign and I barfed in my smoothie. Besides feeling so ill and being a tired, space case I am so excited. I am thrilled that our little ones will be 3 years apart and I am thrilled to be a mommy all over again.

4. I was in Aspen last week with my family. It was the first trip that Ross had ever been on with all 4 of my siblings. I am so bummed that I am not sharing all of our photos but #1 leaked into my desire to snap photos so I have a few cute ones of Henry in ski school but that is about it.

5. On our flight to Aspen we ran into a band {I know that doesn't make sense}. Ross and I knew the drummer, my sister knew the guitarist and we met the singer who is adorable. Any way the first night we were in Aspen we went to their show and were blown away. The band is called A Fine Frenzy... check them out!

6. I really want fried rice.

I am so excited for you Alexis:) I remember being sooooo sick with Penelope I had to literally run out of meetings to make it to the bathroom in time. Glamorous:) And there was a point where all I could eat (and keep down) was carrot cake. So strange, so wonderful:)

Hope you are in the clear of that soon. Best, best wishes to you and your growing family. Enjoy every moment that you can. And go get yourself some fried rice already.
