It's staying light outside for a little longer now! EK has been a crazy girl outside lately. It makes for a MUCH better evening when she is able to get a little of her energy out. Also, my mom has made a few outfits for EK that are just adorable.

 I'm stuck in a book rut lately. I'm spending way too much time on the internet, aimlessly browsing Pinterest and my mommy boards. I did happen to pick up the first Harry Potter book a few days ago, so I may revisit that series. 

Gnomeo and Juliet. X10,000. My mom gave it to EK for her birthday. It's EK's new favorite movie, but it's a little depressing to hear her call it "Momma & Daddy". I guess she is reminded of us when she sees talking garden gnomes. Really, I have been sucked back into Dual Survival and The Bachelor. Educational + trash= My television watching habits are incredibly well rounded.

Listening to:
The Thieving Birds- Hey, Leigh.  Love this band !

Thinking about:
How blessed we are as a family. I've been so worried for a few patients and kids that are in horrible situations, and I just can't be thankful enough that Ryan and I get to be the ones to raise our beautiful girl.

Looking forward to:
I have a hair appointment on Friday afternoon! My head is in pitiful shape.. I went way blonde in November, started taking Biotin for hair growth, and now I have 2 inch roots. It's bad, but at least my hair is getting longer. My childhood neighbor and fellow troublemaker is so talented at doing hair, and she always makes me feel pretty by the time she's done with mine. 

I'm volunteering in the nursery on Sunday, which will be interesting, I'm sure. As you all know, my maternal insticts aren't my selling points... I'm sure we will be fine though.

Making me happy:
 EK has manners! Seriously, she's adorable. She says "Thank you" (Tatue!) and "No Thank you"  (uh uh tatue!) Cutest. Thing. Ever.

  1. Hi Kirby! I'm a new follower! I can relate to worrying about patients...sometimes it's hard not to take it home with you. Good luck working in the nursery! My day is coming soon!

    1. I wish I could take them ALL home with me, for sure. It's hard not to feel guilty when I sit down to eat a good meal, and worry what someone else is having that night. I hope I can find a way to help them even more. I'm so happy I ran across your blog, too!
