1/9 – Hey, acid reflux: you can suck it.
1/13 – I love the expression on people's faces when they ask when I'm due, and I say, "Today."
1/20 – And, I'm staying! Getting induced today. Tator Tot, I am so excited to meet you.
1/21 – Welcome to the world, Henry Jacob.
1/22 – I am so in love with this kid already. I honestly can't believe he's really all mine.
2/8 – I love that the two feet of snow we got this weekend forced Phillip to work from home. He has his laptop on his desk and Henry on his lap.
2/10 – Still in the midst of a blizzard. Or, as the meteorologist called it, Snowpacolypse 2010.
2/11 – This is the 5th outfit I've put on Henry today. This boy could pee through iron.
2/25 – Hubby to me last night: I think Henry's wet. His level of anger just increased.
3/1 – H pooped on me yesterday. ON ME. As in, so much his diaper couldn't handle it and it ended up on my lap. Not cool, baby, not cool.
3/9 – Told mom I couldn't leave H with her while I shopped b/c I didn't have any nipples with me. Bottle nipples, but still, that sounded weird.
3/12 – Earlier today, when I should have been cleaning, I chose to hold Henry on my chest while he napped for 2 hours. Definitely the right choice.
3/17 – Is it crazy that I know EXACTLY what's on tv at 4 in the morning?
4/3 – H likes to bang his head into my head. Pretty sure one of us is going to end up with a broken nose. If it's me, I'm getting a nose job.
4/3 – Holy cow. Henry rolled over. Twice, just in case I thought the first time was a fluke.
4/12 – Last day of maternity leave is tomorrow. Excuse me while I cry.
4/14 – We made it. H and I are home, together, just like it should be.
4/20 – What am I going to do? Working all 5 days this week, and only 3 pairs of pants that fit.
4/28 – H and I had a difference of opinion on what constitutes morning. I think it's 5:45, he things it's 3. So exhausted.
5/6 – Just realized it was a year ago this past Tuesday that we found out we were pregnant. Can't believe it's been a year already! Love you, H.
5/30 – Phillip + I are at a wedding. Well, he's at a wedding. I'm sitting in the car pumping. First date night w/o Henry.
6/4 – H fell asleep by himself last night AND slept through the night for the third night in a row. AWESOME.
6/4 – Paying my sister to clean my house? $30. Coming home to a clean house? Priceless.
6/9 – H rolled the other day, then looked up at me, like, what? Aren't you going to applaud?
6/14 – Just as we were about to leave this morning, H spit up all over both of us. And then laughed in my face. Thanks, kiddo.
6/17 – I just saw a tow truck towing another tow truck.
6/21 – It makes sense that today is the longest day of the year, because it is turning into a LONG. FREAKING. DAY.
7/3 – Completed Week 1 Day 1 of the Couch to 5K. Good grief I am out of shape.
7/12 – I love that I have a supportive hubby. Just called to confirm that he would be home early to watch H so I could go running J
7/12 – And I'm using the term "running" pretty loosely here.
7/13 – H likes to grab my face with both hands when I lean in to kiss him. Love that.
7/19 – I'm going shopping for a bathing suit. Prayers are appreciated.
7/31 – You know what sucks? Stretch marks. Thanks, H.
8/4 – I must be batshit crazy to run in this weather. Somebody tweet me in 30 minutes to make sure I haven't died.
8/23 – Okay, can my customers SENSE that I'm getting ready to go on vacation? Have had over $3M in requests THIS MORNING. Normally great, but NOW?
8/23 – Co-worker's teenage daughter told me today that she "loved how pretty I was and how I always dressed so nice." Yes, I'm blushing.
8/24 – I will not cuss at clients. I will not cuss at clients. I will not cuss at clients. I will not cuss at clients. I will not cuss at clients.
8/25 – I definitely forgot makeup this morning. I *may* have forgotten deodorant. And I had a nail in my tire, which means my car is at the shop, which means I can't even drive somewhere to BUY deodorant.
8/29 – We are home from our beach vacation with a 7-month-old. And we are exhausted. Happy, but exhausted.
9/1 – Super productive today, which hopefully makes up for sucking at life yesterday.
9/3 – Have I mentioned we're throwing a labor day picnic for 50 people on Sunday? Yes, the weekend after our beach trip. Yes, I'm an idiot.
9/4 – Eating at Chick Fil A and THEN running is a bad idea. Ask me how I know.
9/10 – Who knew that one little nose could produce SO MUCH snot?
9/10 – So, H is COMPLETELY IRATE when I wipe the snot dripping down his face, but he is PERFECTLY FINE with wiping on my shirt. Awesome.
9/20 – I'm glad someone (Henry) finally appreciates my mad dance skills.
10/2 – And I'm done. First 5K. Complete.
10/5 – Is it weird that I brought scrapbooking supplies to work? They're sitting under my desk, just waiting for my lunch break.
10/9 – Oh, now H has learned to pull himself up. There will be no stopping him now.
10/15 – Running today for the first time in a week. Nothing to do w/ me being lazy + everything to do with this dirty little word: harvest.
10/26 – Have I mentioned that I'm not a fan of the treadmill. Not. A. Fan.
10/31 – I think I may have overdosed on chocolate. Please tell me I'm not alone.
11/12 – Ever gone to work and realized you shouldn't have worn a black bra with that shirt? I mean, it's never happened to me. Definitely not today.
11/14 – P: What are you eating? Me: cough drop. P: Oh, you smell like old people.
11/17 – H and I have a system. I fold a piece of clothing, he pulls it off the pile + throws it in the floor. Such a good helper!
11/19 – Not only did I trip + fall in front of my boss today, but I just missed my mouth + spilled soda all over myself.
11/20 – He just discovered the joy of pulling tissues out of the box one by one.
11/21 – H stood up on his own today for about 5 seconds. Then we all collapsed into giggles. It was wonderful.
11/30 – Sister in college: I need a job. I'm poor. Me: You think you're poor? Try having a mortgage. And a kid. And a husband who farms and hunts.
12/1 – Huh. My tights are too big, and they keep falling down. This is awkward.
12/1 – Does Spanx make leggings? I need a pair of those.
12/2 – Working from home in my recliner. Definitely not awful.
12/3 – Just a general reminder: whoever you are, whatever you want, you deserve it. You are awesome.
12/7 – I have spent all night in the recliner with H. Notice I didn't say "slept." 3rd night of this. I'm a little grumpy.
12/9 – I scrapbook because I have a serious case of CRS.
12/11 – I've decided that I'm totally cool with my house not being clean for the next two years. That's the last stage of grief, right? Acceptance?
12/13 – I can finally breathe through my nose again. I'd forgotten how nice it feels.
12/18 – Shoppers, beware! I'm wearing my kick-ass boots today.
12/20 – P is interviewing RIGHT NOW for his dream job.
12/25 – P + I are about to throw a Christmas hissy fit re: toy assembly.
12/29 – I haven't worn heels in a LONG time. I'm pretty sure my feet are getting ready to cut themselves off so they can kick me in the head.
Happy New Year's Everyone!
