Photo-a-day album.

I was asked to post some pictures of my photo-a-day album on here, so I'm going to post what I have done so far.

There they are. I need to get caught up. I am getting behind! ACK!

SO not a morning person.

I really did not want to get up this morning at about 8:15 when everyone else was awake. Madolin is still waking up a lot and last night was worse than usual. She woke up every 1 1/2 hours to 2 hours without fail. I need more sleep than that! She eats more in the night than she does during the day. Something has got to change. I wonder if it is because she is in our bed (I'm too lazy to actually get up to feed her) and when we move it wakes her up. I am really going to try harder to put her back in her bed when she is done eating tonight. See if that helps any. Please, oh please. I need more sleep than what I'm getting and naps just don't do it (when I'm actually able to take them). Gotta go do the dishes and start laundry before I am needed elsewhere.

She rolled over!

Madolin rolled over for the first time today about 5 minutes ago. I had layed her down on the couch (I know, not good lol) and was on the computer and she started fussing, so I went over to see what the problem was and she was on her stomach! Her first real physical milestone! I was so excited! But doesn't this mean that she is getting bigger? It's all happening so fast! Time just flies.


Oh my gosh. I want a house so badly. I just went over to my parents' house (house sitting for our neighbors still) to get some laundry to do over here and my little brother started bugging me like crazy. I know he's a boy and a brother and that's what he's supposed to do, but I don't want to have to live with that anymore. I want a place I can call my own. There are few things I want more than a house I can call my home. I just need to have faith that when the time is right it will happen for me. Just had to get that off my chest.

I went running Friday late morning with my mom and did pretty good. I also went running last night (by myself... shocking I know!). I'm totally sore today, but I think that it will just get better. My legs finally don't hurt when I'm just sitting still though. I'm surprised at how much I actually like to run though. I used to absolutely hate it. I guess it makes a difference when it's a choice instead of having to do it (like in highschool gym class). Anyway, my picture for yesterday was of my running shoe. The day before that I took a picture of Maddie in her towell after a bath. She LOVES to take baths and kicks her legs and coos and smiles the whole time she is in it. I love how she smells fresh and clean when she first comes out of her baby tub and is still slightly damp. Her hair curls up and she grins at me from ear to ear. It's almost as if she is telling me thank you.

Kara and I are doing a picture a day album. We take a picture a day for a month. It will make us take pictures and put down things that are important to us that we normally wouldn't. On June first I took a picture of cocoa puffs. Hyrum and I spent the morning snuggling, watching cartoons, and eating cocoa puffs dry. He would even get behind me and wrap his little arms around my neck.

On June second, I took a picture of chess pieces that Hyrum had lined up on the Clawson's couch. He even left them there for the rest of the day. He kept pointing at the knights and saying, "horsie, horsie." What a smart boy!

We are house sitting for the Clawson's while they are in Hawaii until the 10th. It's been nice. We're about to head over to Mom's house next door to have "girl time" with Kara and my mom. Sounds like fun to me! :)
