I love blogging, but have had NO time to do it the past couple days. I keep thinking of lots of things I want to say, but never get around to doing it.
-Have you ever heard of tabouli? I remember my mom making it and, personally, I think it's very tasty and it's also very healthy! I decided to make some for dinner yesterday. Eric was like, "umm, is this supposed to be hot?" That translates to, "What the heck is this stuff? This is nasty!" But, because Eric would never say something like that he said some other random comment about it being too cold.
Well, today when I tried to feed some to Judah he literally spit it out and started gagging. I thought he was going to throw up, but fortunately he didn't. Eric was like, "yeah, I had to keep myself from gagging last night." Haha, I guess I'll be the only one eating the leftovers!
-The Community Babyshower: Basically, it's a big baby expo put on by the hospital. You have to be invited to be in it (but don't worry Jenna, I'll get you an invite!). Everyone sets up their table and promotes their product or service. I've never been to it (last year we thought about it but it was right on my due date!).
Today I met with a lady putting on a business tradeshow. Personally, I think it sounds cool, but Eric doesn't think we should be in it because it's not geared toward our target audience. There's a huge baby expo in San Francisco, but it costs at least twice as much to be in it. The cool think about the Home, Garden, & Antique Show and the Community Babyshower is that we're able to be in them for FREE!! You can't beat that!
-I know I've said this a million times, but Judah is SO FREAKING social! Everywhere we go he's making little friends. And, he'll go up to both adults and kids and say, "What's your name?" Tonight we were at Costco and he was having fun sitting next to and eating pizza with his 4 year old new friend Albert. I didn't make up that name either, how cute is that? I love that these total grandparent/great-grandparent names are coming back in. A few months ago Laura came to storytime with us and there was a little girl names Ethel or something like that. (Do you remember what is was, Laura?)
-Judah's sleep schedule is a CRAZY mess. I know it's my fault, but I honestly don't know if there's much I can do about it. Most nights we get him into bed at 8:30. But, on cell nights people don't leave until 9:30, so last night he was up until 10:00. On Sundays by the time we get home from church and eat lunch it's already 2:30, so he goes down at 3. Then, he stays up late. Then, sleeps in the next morning and starts the whole crazy schedule over the next day. Today he didn't wake up until 10:20!! Ministering to people and church are, obviously, huge priorities to us, but I feel like Judah's sleep schedule is totally being affected. I want him to be getting plenty of sleep. He just started getting ANOTHER cold and I hope it's not from lack of sleep. Oh yeah, and the crazy sleep schedule also messes up his naps. So much so that he hasn't taken a nap in about 4 days. I know he needs those naps because he falls asleep in the car or gets super cranky early. On the way home from Costco tonight, at about 6:30, he fell asleep.
-Tomorrow I have Wake Up NOW (Networking on Wednesdays, remember?) I always feel so funny getting dressed up in businessy clothes, like I am playing some game or in a play or something. I'm such an imposter! I'm not a businesswoman...I'm a MOM! Different businesses take turns hosting them and tomorrow's is at a coffee shop. Can't miss that!
-The last couples nights have been LATE nights for Eric & I. With Judah going to bed around 9:30 or 10:00, we don't get to bed until around midnight. But, it's been so much fun!!! We study our Bibles together (so good, so easy to get tons of revelation!) and then we work on our webpage. Eric is teaching me how to put together the announcements and I really like doing it. (And I'm learning how to use Photoshop. Yay!) I've made a save the date, two pregnancy announcements, and two other things that I can't remember. Check it out and maybe you can find the new stuff made by yours truly. (haha, I've always wanted to say "yours truly")
