boo tuesday

Allow me to needlessly complain......I'm grumpy. I am now 31 weeks pregnant. I have a pain in one of my ribs on the right side of my body, that unless I am laying flat on my back, or standing up is pretty much what you would think constant pain is.....constant. I had this same pain when I was pregnant with Natalie, it started at about 21 weeks. With this child it started at about 26.
Also, I'm not exercising this pregnancy, whereas I did at least attempt to walk a few times a week last time....thus adding to the grumpiness.
Lastly, I went to make sour cream chicken and potatoes tonight only to find that my potatoes were rotten. I'm hungry.

yummy goo

On Christmas morning, like any rational person, I decided to make cinnamon rolls for the very first time ever. In fact it was my very first run with anything containing yeast. Yeast makes me nervous....I have no idea why, but why not face my fear on the greatest day of the year? I'm happy to say it was a success....I have pictures, and people who ate them to prove it. However, as I was making my second batch today (that I think is going to be even better than the first) I decided that I will make them again....but not before I get new counter tops!
I realized that I should've taken a picture of the mess that flour, dough, melted butter, sugar, and cinnamon make in these lovely cracks...but you can imagine it can't you?

1st haircut

Natty has been sporting a pretty sweet mullet for some time now. Every time I do her hair, I brush the back and think "this would be so easy to just cut straight across and be done with it". But having no haircutting experience (aside from shaving Benjamin's head) I have never had the guts to do it....until this past Wednesday. Impulsively while Natalie was taking a bath I got out my haircutting scissors (why I have these, I don't know) and cut off the back of her hair. It was a little stressful since she was busy being a 20 month old that doesn't sit still, but I think I did an OK job. The right side is a smidge longer than the left, and unfortunately that is highlighted by the fact that the left side curls under and the right side flips out...but all in all, it looks alright, and when I have the assistance of Benjamin, I'll do a little further trimming.
Might I add that I now find her about 15x cuter than I did before that bath. Initially I was a little sad at the change in my growing little girl, but now I just can't help but smile and giggle when she smiles and giggles at me.

try not to laugh...

So this is my online christmas card (because I'm too lazy to do a real one). How awesome would this be if I actually sent this out?

hump day..

I think she would do this all day long if I let her.
