life has been nice and slow lately.
we got back from indiana and have been lounging around a lot and i love it.
the weather shows signs of maybe a spring ahead.
today was the first day maxson spent any real time in fresh air!
it was absolutely lovely to take him outside and swing him around without being bundled up in blankets/snowsuits.
i can't wait for summer.
casey is continuing to study like a mad man (i've never been so eager for a semester of school to be over in my life).
maxson is sleeping longer stretches at night sometimes which is a.w.e.s.o.m.e.
last night we had our first 9 hour sleeping stretch, oh my, that was nice.
but i of course woke up after he'd been sleeping for 8 hours, naturally,
and then couldn't fall back to sleep,
and then i went to make sure he was still breathing,
and then i went to the bathroom,
and still couldn't fall back to sleep,
then went down stairs to pump a little bit to relieve the pressure,
then still couldn't go back to sleep,
then needed chapstick,
then casey needed tylenol for a throbbing ear infection (at 26????),
then maybe i was about to fall back to sleep,
and maxson wakes up.
30 minutes later, after he's full and asleep, we continue our slumber until morning.
and somehow i was still tired even after all that sleep?
i've been kinda lazy myself lately, just going from nap to nap without much of a schedule.
we've been baby wearing lots around here.
maxson is perfectly content and happy with whatever activity i'm doing while he's in the moby.
(sitting down doing nothing doesn't count as an activity to him... what?)
it's been a lot of fun.
pick up the house,
ya know, mom/wife/house stuff
but we love that moby.
even casey has joined in on it a time or two.
and big announcement
after 2 rounds I AM WINNING THE FAMILY MARCH MADNESS BRACKET.
people, that's a big deal!
you know how i pick the teams?
rankings? well yes of course i keep those in consideration.
but beyond that i pick the winner based off a bunch of whims.
arizona, california, and utah teams usually are almost always chosen in my brackets.
western states almost always beat all other states.
isn't kansas like always good at basketball?
michigan has gangsters, they usually win too.
sometimes teams just have names that sound like winning teams: butler, duke, marquette, harvard, etc.
if i've never heard of a team before they won't ever get chosen no matter what their ranking (FGCU? whichita? la salle? who are these teams?)
back to maxson,
we've been getting more big laughs lately doing the most random stuff!
and once we can tell he's laughing at us we keep doing it over and over and over and over to get replay action on that sound.
babies laughing=happiest moment of my days
