Really? Only March 5th?

I swear this week is going sooooo sloooooow. I keep thinking it ought to be St. Patrick’s Day or something already. Part of it is because January and February just whizzed by. It felt like one day we were celebrating New Years Eve in a tiny motel room as we waited for the blizzard to stop so we could continue home from Colorado, and the next it’s Valentine’s Day. And now it’s already March!! However, now I feel like the days are just completely dragging and this week is just taking f-o-r-e-v-e-r. (Hmm, my spell check is telling me everyone of those single letters is wrong, which makes sense, except apparently it’s ok with –v- …weird.)

You know what I think most of it is? I decided to take a couple months and stop eating processed sugar. I’ve been doing it for two weeks now, but it feels like years! I’m really hoping that it’ll help me lose weight and train myself to eat healthier again. I’ve been having a major problem with that. I think it’s because when I’m pregnant I just let myself eat anything, and then when I’m nursing I’m constantly hungry too. I’m still nursing, but it’s been 8 months since I was pregnant and I’m still having a hard time eating just for myself again. Too big of portions and too many snacks, along with a serious craving for sugar all. the. time. So I decided to just go cold-turkey and quit all the desserts and sugary snacks for good for awhile and hopefully re-train my body. Please wish me luck!

Lily is still potty training. We keep having days where she does fantastic, no accidents for 3 or 4 days in a row, and then it’ll be a week of poopy underwear multiple times a day. Ugh. Right now we’re trying to get her to drink LOTS so that she’ll have to go more often and hopefully really start to recognize her body’s signals, but any other advice would certainly be appreciated. I’m getting really grossed out by all the accidents I’m cleaning up!

One other thing I wanted to mention: I LOVE THIS SUNNY WEATHER!!! For the last couple weeks I’ve totally been pretending it’s summer. I’ve been wearing my capri’s, going to the park with the kids, picnics outside, all the curtains thrown open – it’s been so nice! Nevermind that it’s actually only 55 degrees outside, the sun just makes me happy. :) I’m sure I’m not the only one!

Sorry, no new pictures. I just felt like rambling.

The weather has been great, I agree! I hope it stays, potty training doesn't sound fun. He's already crawling? Lydia is so close!
