On a side note, it is really amazing what kind of neat blogs you can find just by following the links on blogs you know. For example, I followed the link "Amazing Trips" on my friend Jay's blog. What an amazing (no pun intended) family. I'm floored by this woman's honesty and sense of humor. I love sneak peeks into other people's lives. Makes my day just a little more interesting - not that having a 17-month old working on getting her molars (for the last 2 months!)isn't interesting enough.

And this is the pile of cra....stuff I dumped out. Needless to say, this hasn't been done for a while. Again - no judging, please.
Let's see...what's all in there....
stuffed owl, 2 diapers, 1 diaper wipe case, 1 "feminine product" case, chapstick case, board book, toy cow, 2 baby bottles, 1 bib (dirty), 2 travel packs kleenex, 1 small felt purse with crayons and chalk, 2 plastic toy dogs, string of beads, tube of hand sanitizer, 2 cinnamon mints, pack of fruit snacks, church newsletter, receipt of church offerings for taxes, 2 used kleenex, random Kix, 3 barrettes (Mallory's) and one pencil.
Okay, I'm going to go clean it out now....
Soo....Kasey, Tessa, Anna, Chrissy, and Ariel (oh, I know you have your own bag!) you're up!
Now Kasey, don't worry. I have something for you, too. But it wouldn't be much fun if it wasn't a secret anymore, now would it? Guess you'll have to wait until that baby decides to come out....
Anyway, while I sit here listening to her cry and HOPING she'll fall asleep, I thought I'd finally get around to posting the pictures of my "custom" (thanks Jay!) Valentine's Day jeans.
Note to self...when doing applique for the first time rounded letters are NOT the way to go! Oh well, live and learn. Don't look too closely at the stitiching, 'kay?
This is the back. I'm kind of bummed there weren't back pockets....I had a cute idea for that.
And the front. Yikes, looks like I forgot to clip a thread. Please don't judge me.
Score: overtired 17 month old: 1 Mommy: 0

Mallory's got another cold. I never knew a little kid could make that much snot! Seriously. Unfortunately, this one came with a bit of a fever. So she's all drugged up for the night, and hopefully will sleep well.
She's got a couple new wods, too. She's figured out "hot" and uses it if the water is too warm when washing her hands, when I open the oven, and when she has hot food. I'm trying to teach her to blow on her food....that's pretty funny. She's also started saying "ow". I'm not sure that she uses that one exactly in context. Tonight, she was sitting with Matt, who kept rubbing her head. She'd say "ow" every time! Goofball.
Now my exciting news.....we may be having an addition in our house. A dishwasher! (One without two arms and hands...) It's mostly just a matter of figuring out how it's going to fit and get rigged up in our kitchen. I can't wait!

She went twice in the potty this evening, too. The first time after we got to Grandma Deb's from town, then again before we came home. I don't think I'm ready for this. Do they make panties for 18 month olds?
Again, we're totally not pushing her to be trained yet, but I agree - if she wants to sit on the potty, she might as well have the chance to use it. I really like that that is Jo's philosophy, too.

Me, on the other hand, not so much. I feel like I've been hit by a truck. Today was so bad that I was up for about 10 minutes this morning with Mallory and had to go wake Matt up to take over. Fortunately, Grandma Deb came to the rescue and took Mallory for the day so I could stay in bed. I'm nice and drugged up now and feeling a touch better, but Mallory puts me to shame.

Please pray for her children. They are now left without a mommy and their daddy is in jail. How awful.
