Let's see. Nothing terribly interesting to report. Well, lots interesting, but much of it isn't really blog worthy, haha. But some is! So I'll tell you about the fun stuff!
Gage and Sophie are the best of friends. It is so cool to watch them interact. They just play together, hug each other, emulate each other, etc. Gage tells Sophie he loves her all the time, she sits on his lap, and they just laugh and laugh with each other. It isn't the way I expected it to be, at all. Not to say they don't get into it sometimes (Gage periodically shoves her down, or she will bite him) but over all, their sibling relationship is a really good one. I sincerely hope they always have close bond.
They each have email addresses and I try to remember to email them regularly to tell them stuff about what they're doing, what their development is like at their ages, etc. I figure it will be fun when they're bigger, and I can give them the passwords, and they can read all the things I wrote them. I also thought it would be cool for them to each have email addresses now; who knows what email addresses will still be available in 13-15 years?! It's fun to write to them, anyway.
I had a really nice Mother's day. Brian gave me a card, we spent the day as a family, and took a long walk to a frozen yogurt spot. It was fun and tasty, and not TOO bad, points-wise. Next time we go, I will be a little more portion conscious, but it was ok anyway. For me, I am not the kind of person to want to send the kids away or get away from them for Mother's day. I really enjoy spending time with them and feel so blessed to have them. Not saying anything negative about those who do enjoy a day without kids, because we all celebrate differently. But a perfect Mother's day for me is one with kids! And also a long walk, and also delicious frozen yogurt, haha. We sure put miles on our double jogger. It's great for walking with both kids.
I have been working really hard at cooking every night. I've been doing pretty well, too. We really don't eat out very much any more, and I'm really proud of that. I've lost weight the last four weeks, and that's a pretty huge accomplishment for me!
The SD card in my phone fried last weekend. It was a big bummer because I had loads of music and photos on there, and I hadn't backed up pictures in a long time. Fortunately, Google+ works diligently at backing up my pictures, so they are all "in the cloud". Now I just have to figure out how to get them OUT of the cloud. And how to warranty my SD card, too. It was a birthday gift, so it's barely 6 months old.
I guess that's about all I have for now. That was a pretty boring post, so I hope you enjoyed the minutiae of my life. Ha!
