My Old Man...

Happy 31st Birthday to my nerd. Love you.

My Monster Child.

This is how I feel about Brazos, as I imagine any mother of an almost-2 year old boy feels. Not the bath salts part but the description of how boys are and wanting to asking the grown men in my life "why." and stare at them like its a joke they play on us women. I think she captured it perfectly so I wanted to share.

Brazos is becoming a handful. I should not have bragged about how easy I had it. He's really not that bad but I was so spoiled ya'll! It feels worse than it is because he has always been so EASY.

And at the same time, holy moly does he make me laugh. Like tears-running-down-your-face kinda laugh. My kid is hilarious. Its just so amazing to watch him too. He's really growing up and has such a big personality. He's so outgoing and rowdy and such a boy. He talks a mile a minute and we can actually understand some of the things he says.
Some of his favorite things to say currently are:
"Top-It" = Stop-It
"Bob-bob" = Spongebob

2012: Another Year in Review

I would be lying if I said I wasn't THRILLED that this year is over. It been a horrible year with a few really great moments sprinkled in. I'm looking forward to 2013 and to never looking back at 2012 but one last time [just to remember the good] here's a review of this last year:

1. What did you do in 2012 that you'd never done before? Went on a cruise, went to a foreign country, snorkeled, ran a half marathon, got down to my goal weight (and gained it all back again) - lots of great firsts

2. Did you keep your new year's resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
Last year my new year's resolutions were as follows:
Lose 29lbs by August (our cruise) CHECK
Drink 8 glasses of water a day FAIL
Be better organized with time/work/home/etc FAIL
Budget, budget, budget FAIL
Send a card for every occasion FAIL
Take better care of my appearance FAIL
Blog more. BIG FAIL
No candy at work SEMI FAIL (ate less candy but can't say I didn't eat ANY)
My 2013 Resolu…
