I never know how to start blogs. So, let's get passed the awkward start and get into it!
Anna still isn't walking regularly. I don't think she's ever going to walk. She absolutely loves to walk around the house while holding our hands, but it HAS to be both hands. If you let go of one of her hands she sits down and cries. And, when you're done walking around with her she cries. I think I've got a bit of a whiner on my hands. She'll do a bit of walking from chair to toy and things on her own, but it's usually not more than two or three steps, and she'll hardly ever walk when pressured. She's going to be 10 and still only walking while Miles or I hold her hands.
I really don't like when people say "So-and-so and I's blank." That's just not correct. Neither is labeling a picture of yourself with someone else "So-and-so and I." It's me, not I!
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I'm not stoked, but I would be if I could actually comprehend that it was tomorrow. Does that make sense? November has gone by ridiculously fast and I can't believe it's almost over. I'm making mashed potatoes for my aunt's house tomorrow. Then, Saturday we're going to my grandma Pike's house and I'll be making a caramel macchiato cheesecake. Fancy, fancy.
I'm so incredibly tired of taking pictures. I think I've just gotten burned out on it. Actually, it's not taking pictures, it's editing them. It takes so very long and I rarely have time to work on them. Sure, I'm home 99.9% of the time and about 75% of that time I'm at the computer. But, about 100% of the time I have a baby on my lap who doesn't like to let me get things done. Sadly, whenever I have time to myself I do things like update my blog cough cough, or search diligently for nothing on pinterest. I CAN'T HELP IT! I have about four people I need to get back to with picture information. This weather makes it difficult to plan anything, though. I don't have anywhere inside to take pictures, so bad weather kind of means I'm out of commission. The other thing is that I really just want a break. I want to WANT to take pictures again. I like to look forward to editing pictures...that's one of the things I like about the winter. Also, I have quite a few things I want to sew and make for gifts. Poor me, poor me!
Oh, oh! So recently Anna has been pretty difficult to get to sleep. Then, once she would fall asleep she'd wake up between two and four hours later, and either stay up for a bit of go back to sleep fairly easily. Then, she'd wake up again about two or three hours later and I'd change her diaper and pull her into bed with us. She falls asleep so incredibly easily when she's in bed with us. (Sidenote: Anna sleeping in bed with us always terrified me, as Miles is a pretty deep sleeper and he doesn't turn over, he rolls over and elbows are a-flyin'. But, now that she's able to move herself around and smack Miles in the face, I feel better about it.) Last night she fell asleep while eating (which she used to do every night, but had since stopped) and actually stayed asleep after I put her in bed (again, which she used to do but doesn't really do anymore). I think she woke up once last night to get her pacifier back, but that was it. She went to sleep just after 1am and is still sleeping...in her bed, mind you, at 11:23. Amazing! I wish she'd do that every night! Here's to hoping this is her new schedule! (Don't worry, I don't actually expect that to happen every night...but a girl can dream!)
Okay, enough. I've got to work on pictures!
