I know you're sick of my constant blogging

So it's been more than 6 months since I updated my blog. I've been busy?

Stuck inside because of hurricane, I mean tropical storm Irene is a good reason to finally post a new blog.

I've written about 15 great blogs in my head as I have been getting ready to go to sleep or standing in front of the sink while doing dishes or on the train heading to or from work. However, by the time I'm in front of my computer, I either have to do work work or stuff for church or want to get off the computer as quickly as possible to spend time with my family.

And what a wonderful family it is! Nate's language development cracks us up. Language growth certainly results in some funny conversations. As you may have seen on facebook, Jen had this recent conversations with Nate:
Nate: "The socks are warm mumma."
Jen: "Are they too warm?"
Nate: "No they are one warm mumma."

And the other day when I was driving, Nate said I was going fast and when I asked if he was going too fast he said "No, Mommy's going nice fast."

I've been working on losing some of that weight I gained while we were trying to get pregnant and also have been dealing with sciatica pain that I've had since May. In the process of researching yoga classes (hoping the stretching would help with the pain) I found a place that has classes for 2 and 3-year olds not yet in preschool one day a week for 3 hours. So I signed up for a fitness membership and Nate is now going to a class from 9:15-12:15 on Mondays. The pain has gotten better with the chiropractor, massage and stretching. And I'm down about 5 pounds by restricting calories.

So I have a couple mid-year resolutions. One is to blog once every 2 weeks (or more frequently). And the other is to start getting ready for bed at 10pm every night. I'm going to keep you updated through my blog posts. :)
