 -Lizzy is seriously on the move--she's wanting to hold hands and walk around, and she's constantly pulling herself up on things. She is trying to climb out of her crib, and knows how to tip herself over in her bouncer (time to retire that, I think). The other day, she stood up on her own, but I actually thought she was falling and grabbed her before I realized that she was actually just standing.

-I have somehow misplaced the file folder of ALL our legal documents. Mine, Justin's, and Lizzy's. I KNOW it is somewhere in our house, and I feel like I have looked everywhere but I CANNOT find it. This is especially frustrating because my driver's license expires on Sunday, and I need all those documents to get a new one. Awesome!

-I've been faithfully doing the 30 Day Shred for the last little bit. I'm bribing myself to do it every single day this week--if I do, I'm going to buy a new dress and shoes for an upcoming wedding. Truthfully, I need a dress anyway, but I'm trying to convince myself that I will only buy one if I follow through with the Shred plan.

-I'm in the middle of reading The Help, and I can hardly put it down.

-I wanted to use ShowIt sites to make a new photography website, but it appears that now none of their sites are free, even with a referral. Bummer.

-I am thinking about getting some sort of teething necklace. Lately, Lizzy has been grabbing at everything--mouth, nose, etc., when she is tired. And it hurts. I even have a cut on my gums from her scratching me. The only way I can keep her from doing it is my swaddling her arms to put her to sleep. It's frustrating!

-In less than a week, Kaitlin and Jesse (and JAXON!) are coming to visit! I am so excited!


  1. Showit still offers a 5 page website for free with 30MB space. You just have to download the software and create an account and you'll be good to go. You can download at http://showitfast.com/#/download/.

  2. Whew girl! You sound busy. Hope you find that folder.

  3. Well, I guess she really might be walking by the time I get there!!! We can't wait to see you guys! Jaxon has been so happy the last couple of days, so hopefully it lasts while we are home! :)

  4. I keep hearing good things about that book- "The Help." I even almost bought it the other day...maybe I will have to pick it up when I am out today. I've been wanting to get back into reading, but it's a little hard after reading a slew of bad books.

  5. She is amazing! She is going to be walking before you know it! Good luck finding your documents, I hate when you lose some thing that you know is probably right under your nose.

  6. My mom read the Help and loved it, now I really need to pick it up!

    Lizzy is such a strong little girl, I am amazed at all she can do!

  7. She is so cute! Good for you doing the 30 day shred! Can't wait to see what shoes and dress you get!

  8. I misplaced my passport and social recently. I looked EVERYWHERE! Through suitcases, my underwear drawer - you name it and I looked there. The day my new social arrived in the mail I found the passport and old social. They were in a random box on my desk stuck between a stack of old 3 1/5 in floppy disks. Random. Good luck finding your stuff!

  9. I love the photo of her walking. She's such a cutie pie.

  10. I think I may start the shred next week too. I go to the gym at night but I'm not seeing the results I want to yet. I know it's only been 3 months but I'm so sick of looking pregnant!

  11. awww she is such a cutie! Good luck finding that folder, I do this to myself all the time and it drives me crazy!

  12. Glad you are liking The Help, I really loved it. Looking forward to your review!
