Life Lately (according to my iPhone)



We've been staying busy these days.  February is just flying by!  Work is kicking my butt and I've been living breathing and dreaming about compensation disclosures and governance issues.  We all had a bout of the stomach flu last week, which came on fast and furious, but thankfully didn't last too long.  Ryan's mom is a life saver and took care of Mac a couple days while we recovered.  Ryan lost 7 pounds and I gained 2.  Go figure.  I just got back from a much-needed overdue wonderful weekend in Breckenridge, CO with my girlfriends.  Ryan has spent the last two weekends fishing and hunting with the boys.  And Mac spent his first weekend away from mom and dad at the Farm with his grandparents.  I only called to check on him 43 times and only cried twice while I was gone, so I consider it a success.  The little dude is crawling 100 mph, pulling up on everything, standing with ease and even walking behind his push-toys.  I'm shocked that he's this big.  SHOCKED.  He's STILL got a bit of a head cold (going on 2 months now) and got some new meds from the doctor this morning for a little eye infection.  Poor kid.  It hasn't slowed him down a bit, though.  He now has 4 teeth and eats everything in sight.  He's gotten so solid - I can't wait to see what he weighs at his 9 month appointment next week.  We're gearing up for snow tomorrow (supposedly) and are looking forward to a weekend full of NOTHING.  I can't imagine anything better than snow outside, a fire inside, surrounded by furry pets, a snuggly baby, a giant glass of wine and a bald husband (yes, he shaved his head and I holy shit do I LOVE it).  Hope you all are staying warm!

  3. Let's hang out after your big work paper book thingie (uh huh yeah that's right) is done. We're in a similar place, minus the travels and work stuff. (So, what? Big hefty snotty baby on the move and wondering wtf where is my infant? I got samples of Enfamil TODDLER in the mail the other day. TODDLER. I cried.) (Also, we have wine in common.)

    Worst comment ever. Hang out with me soon anyways.

  5. Mac, could you be any cuter?!?! I think not! I've always thought skiing sounded like vacation disguised as exercise but that picture of everyone sitting around with beers sure looks fun! ;) Sorry the flu hit your house and that poor Mac is still feeling crummy. Poor kids. It's tough when all your friends drool all over you and lick your toys. Makes it hard to stay healthy!

  6. *make that exercise disguised as vacation. Clearly my brain is fried. I should probably stop lawyering for the day.

  7. RYAN SHAVED HIS HEAD?! Omg, you are DYING. Does he look like your beloved Bruce Willis now? And um I'm not ok with like 97% of those pictures because Mac is not allowed to be so big, NOT ALLOWED I SAY!!

    Sigh. Have another one so I have an actual baby, since that fool seems to want to be like a kid or something.

    xoxo,
    Your Demanding But Very Loving Bestie

    ps. Mally, we're still waiting for your arrival, I know your mom is being lame and there's snow and shit up there.

  16. Are you reading (or did you read) Gone Girl? Looks like the book cover. What were you thoughts? I was not a fan. I mean I liked the whole book and then hated the end. They are both losers

  17. Very cute. I really enjoyed reading your blog and I can relate with your comment about work. I have been working on workmans comp medford oregon for the last month straight and it is very time consuming.
