When I got back from my trip to Winslow, J.D. had the crib set up. Bo has been sleeping in my top dresser drawer for the last 3 1/2 months. (joke) The cradle that my parents got when I was born held little Bo since he was born, but he's huge now so he's in his own room in a big boy crib. He likes to throw his feet up high and slam them down. Sometimes I know he's awake because I hear that.
I keep telling him "stop being so cute!" But he's stubborn like his momma.
Clearly he found his toes. And he started rolling over from his back to tummy. A few weeks ago he did the opposite, but it was really an accident. He just really didn't want to be on his tummy. He hates exercising. Just like his momma.
UNLIKE his momma, he looks like his dadda! 1/20 people say he looks like me. I see J.D. like most people.

I’ve got a pedicure at different places every 2 - 6 weeks for the past 5-6 years. I rarely cut my own toenails, I just let the ladies do it. Shortly after one in August, I got an ingrown toenail, I picked at it for a while then left it alone..then picked at it then it got worse. It was waking me up in the night because it touched the bed or the sheets it hurt (it was that tender!) so I had to sleep on my tummy with my ankles cross. So annoying since I just spent the better part of 9 months struggle to find comfortable ways to sleep. During these weeks Bo sleep SO well during the night, has been going to sleep between 8-9:30 then waking up between 5-7 and going back to sleep til 8-9! Which is awesome, but I still woke up every few hours because of my toe. It got worse and worse so when I went to Winslow mid September I went to Dr. Travis Reber (who by the way is easy on the eyes) He numbed my whole toe and cut that whole side of my toenail. It looks terrible but feels awesome!!! It was such a relief. A couple days before I went it my OTHER big toe felt tender when I walked, I had him look at that one, but it looked fine. Now, 2 weeks later, it’s totally curved in and hurting, AND my 2nd toe (the one next to the big toe…do these suckers have names besides the one who got roast beef and the one who ran away?) is growing inward as well! My toes are driving me crazy. These are my FIRST ingrown toenails and I have 3...who does that?! It makes me think since I still to this day and I’m 26 have never had a cavity, when I do I’m going to have a mouthful. I was doing good doing my workout video everyday before I couldn’t put shoes on anymore, now I haven’t been doing anything active and I have 25lbs to loose so I can fit in my pre pregnancy wardrobe! Isn’t nursing suppose to help you loose weight? Because I can’t imagine what I would weight if I wasn’t nursing. I created a throw away pile at the top of the stairs this week (old lamp shade, broken laundry basket, a box from snowboarding shoes that has been in my way for a year, a cocking gun that works I’m sure but I just want to throw it away because it is awkwardly large and I don’t want to look at) also in this pile was the scale. J.D. took it all to the dumpster tonight and said “Are you really throwing this scale away?“ I said yes. It MUST be broken. Then I thought to myself. Or it’s really mean. Speaking of throwing things out I’m still obsessively nesting, apparently I got addicted to it. Everytime the baby is sleeping I run to start a project and try to finish it before he wakes up, if he wakes up before I finish I entertain him til his next nap and go finish up. I lay awake thinking of if I should move the plates and cups to a different cupboard…if I should go through and take extra stuff to savors…and while I’m there I wonder if I could find nightstands better than the ones I have…then what is in these nightstands? I should clean them out too…I’m not sure if like where they are right now….should I rearrange the room. Ah. The tv. That’s the only place for the tv. Unless we get a flat screen for the other wall. That would be nice but we’re on a budget, that wouldn’t be smart to spend $500 on a tv when we need to plan for the next year or so on one income. Then, should we have bought the 50+inch flat screen? Was that stupid? We could have been wiser. But it makes J.D. happy. But now we have to have HD channels, which are awesome, but they are an extra $18/mo from Cox and I just got the Cox bill down to $60, all of the sudden it’s $130 again…how did that happen when 60 + 18 is NOT 130. What other bills can I cut? Did I pay all the bills this month?
Ouch. My toe. Blah.
Ouch. My toe. Blah.
