All over the place

I need to take back my plan from the previous post. It is not your responsibility to hold me accountable for my own eating habits. Plus, it just didn't work. I still ate like CRAP yesterday. I am going out of town this weekend as well so I can't imagine Weight Watchers will be at the forefront of my mind. I truly have nothing to say for myself.

On a lighter note, a blog I have been reading called Marlie and Mommy (see the link and the button) featured me today! I was so flattered! She asked such great questions. I also love the way she writes about her daughter. I feel like we have a lot in common.

I realized today that I haven't actually talked about Lila in a while (other than her being sick). It seems I have been talking about myself entirely too much. Here's what's up in the world of Lila these days:

1. There seems to be either a lack of the desire or a complete defiance in regards to crawling. She can contort herself into a variety of positions that look like they could lead to crawling and then she looks at you and goes right back to sitting. You could put every toy we own just out of her reach and she would just sit there and smile at you. Yes, we did that.

2. Lila's perfect world of everything revolving around her is about to come to an abrupt halt. No, we aren't having a baby. But, my sister will begin watching Lila AND Carson starting Thursday of next week. Carson is an adorable three month old that belongs to my friends Katie and Brandon. Katie is also a teacher and she is going back to work part time for the rest of the school year. Katie has been bringing Carson over lately and when Sara holds Carson Lila becomes a little distraught. I mean, we couldn't really expect much less. Seth and I both smother her because we don't feel like we see her enough and Sara is like her very best friend in the entire world. She is never around other babies/kids so it stands to reason that confusion would set in over the new addition to her day. This would be the one and only drawback I can come up with for not doing daycare. Thank goodness Carson can teach Lila some social skills.

3. Lastly, this one's about me. Yea, I somehow made a post about Lila turn into something about me again. In my defense, it's about how I feel about her. I look at her every day and I feel like I don't really know what it's like to be a parent. I know I'm biased, but she is so unbelievably easy. She is happy, bubbly, and just plain perfect. People tried to tell me before she came that I would never know how happy a child could make me until I had one. Now I know. It scares me sometimes (well, a lot of the time). That intense kind of love is all consuming and overwhelming but I think I can handle it.
