Listening...to the sweet, sweet sound of silence and white noise coming over the baby monitor. Millie's naps were less than impressive today and we mostly heard screaming and/or adorable babbling and laughing (like...laughing at our weak attempts to get her to sleep, more like it) over the monitor throughout the day, so this is a pleasant change. Can we blame today's anomalies on the time change? Pretty please? Cause I've been waiting for that opportunity!
|Listen, lady. I've got too much to do to sleep, okay? This activity thingy isn't just going to play with itself, ya know.|
Drinking...nothing right now. I've fallen way off the gallon-of-water-a-day wagon. We had a few good months, and now I'm struggling to drink even half of that! Apparently my star sticker chart motivation wore off? Terrible.
Wearing...candy cane pajama pants and a really old UGA t-shirt. It's pretty avant garde. Oh but hey- at least Millie looked cute today! (subtle segue...)
|A lady always rides side saddle. Good thing I'm a baby and can ride my fish-horse-thing however I want.|
|There she is! Try not to be too in awe of my amazing car photography skills. Focus your energy on the missing gas thing...|
Wanting...DANGIT I STILL WANT THAT ICE CREAM. This whole project is failing me. Other than ice cream, I want a massage. Yard work makes my back hurt.
Needing...nothing, really. It's a wonderful feeling.
Thinking...well, this probably sounds weird, but lately I've been thinking about how I don't ever really have to try to think/recall things anymore. Like, if I'm wondering something...I just look it up or Google it. I'm never more than 4 feet away from an electronic device that can instantly answer my question. I don't have to actually think or make myself remember anything. And that's pretty awesome, but also...I think I'm getting dumber. So now I'm making a point to make myself try to remember things on my own without just immediately Googling them. My most recent example would be last night, as I was trying to fall asleep. For some reason (really, no clue...) I was trying to think of the names of all the Harry Potter books in order. I have no idea why. I just needed to. And for the life of me I could NOT remember Book 6. I probably spent...I don't know, 10 minutes, maybe (LONG TIME in trying-to-fall-asleep world), trying to remember. I reviewed the story lines. I TRIED!!!! And in the end I couldn't, so I grabbed my phone and Googled it and finally got some rest. I was mad at myself for giving in and Googling it, but at some point, a girl's gotta sleep. Half-Blood Prince, by the way.
Now you probably think I'm the weirdest person ever...but all I can think about is how I hope I don't get it in my head that I need to name all the presidents or something before I fall asleep tonight. Could be a long night.
Enjoying...the changing seasons and the fun and adorable changes in Millie practically every day. It's so much fun seeing what new things she can do- we volunteer in the church nursery once a month, and today was our day. So it's been a month since the last time we did it, but today it was just crazy how much more interactive she was with the toys and other kids. She hasn't been in there any since last month (she stays with us in the service still, unless we're volunteering), so it's not like she's been 'practicing' with these particular toys or anything...she's just learning so much and getting so much smarter, she knows what to do! Hence the 3,000 pictures from the nursery today. :)
|Today I am a maestro, Mommy!! You sit right there and listen to me play.|
|All the other kids can stand up around this thing? Well, then so will I. Dad, you stay right there for when I topple over.|
Well, I'm out of currently questions and I still want ice cream, so...this was a failure in terms of diet-control, but a success in terms of I-really-should-blog-more-often. You win some, you lose some. I hope you have a great week...and that your brain doesn't pose impossible questions right when you're trying to fall asleep. Because it isn't fun.
