...I'm rambling. Why? Because I am unable to make one, fluid thought today.
So, I FINALLY updated my sidebar with some more of my favorite blogs. Seriously, it has been MONTHS. I feel like there is probably a dear friend that I have neglected to add...if so, let me know! They're in order from most recently posted, so if you're on the bottom of the list, that does not mean that you're on the bottom of my list. (hoot hoot, I miss you :))
Am I the only one who has been SUPER busy lately?? I feel like I have been doing so much, but when I stop and think about it, I cannot tell you what I have been up to. Weird.
It really bothers me that I just ended a sentence with a preposition.
I told a friend FOREVER ago that I was going to do a post of my favorite baby items, and I haven't yet...sorry, friend. I will eventually have time to actually think out a post, but for now, I will say that my MOST favorite buy EVER are the Pampers Sensitive Wipes. Wow. The first month we were home, and even when we were in the hospital, we used the harsh, regular wipes and always used diaper rash cream. I just thought "she's a baby and babies all use the cream, so we are going to as well." Since switching to the sensitive wipes, we have maybe used the cream twice...in EIGHT months. Miracle!
Does anyone ELSE follow the Pioneer Woman's blog???!!! I have been keeping up with her for at least two years now, and it is AMAZING how far she has come! So, if you know who I am talking about, you know that she is not some boring ole woman sitting in her cabin poking at a fire while preparing a pig for supper that she killed with her own two hands. I know that this is the image most have in their head if they have never read about her, so I'm here to tell you that she is NOT at all like that, and she is AWESOME!! Seriously, before getting married, I rarely cooked, but she has helped me out SO much! Now, it's rare that we eat outside of the home. (My favorties are her brisket, rolls, chocolate pie, orange muffins, lasagna, bacon-wrapped jalapeno thingies...I could go on.) Her cookbook is wonderful too. And, I just really think she is hilarious and has some great tips on her site, but probably the thing I love most about her is that she is super humble. ANYWAY, I am not getting to the point! Did you hear that she was contacted to make her love story into a MOVIE??? Possibly starring REESE WITHERSPOON??!!! I am SO excited!! Can you tell??
Anniston has been rolling, rolling, rolling lately! So much fun. We've had a lot of therapy recently, therefore, a lot of encouragement. Sometimes I focus so much on what she is not doing that I miss out on all that she IS doing. I am really trying to work on this because I know that I should be giving God ALL of the glory He alone deserves! I have been seeing her right hand open TONS more lately! It has been so much more relaxed, and she has even been making more of an effort to reach for things. I would appreciate it if you guys would pray that she would continue to recognize that side more and more. We're still working on strengthening the right side of her torso, but it truly is amazing how much stronger it has already become! I see so much motivation in her eyes. I know the Lord has placed that determination and strength in her, and for that, I am grateful!
She has been shaking her head "no" ALL the time! It makes me want to laugh so hard because I know she doesn't know what she is doing (I don't think), but I realize that I probably do not need to overly encourage that motion!
Here she is sleeping with her daddy. Part of me wants to stomp my feet and protest that I am NOT a very sentimental person, but my posts are not matching up these days! Really though, one might think that I shed a tear watching Hallmark commercials (like my mom...love you, mom), but I can assure you that I RARELY cry. I am almost as bad as Cameron Diaz in The Holiday. Almost.
The End. I think.
