Just checking in.


  Hi! Today seemed like a good one to just check in. There are a lot of things I want to write about {new year's goals, life with 2 kids, updates on my 30 before 30 bucketlist...}, but I just haven't gotten around to them. And come to think of it, I really want to write a day in the life post, too. Because this season is so funny and full and exhausting and I want to document it to look back on later. 
  But anyways. None of that today. Just some bullet points to check in

//I'm working on getting up before the boys each morning. Depending on when Tyler's last feeding was or how cold our house it {its hard to leave a warm bed!}, it does or doesn't happen. I'm looking forward to more predictability from Tyler so I can wake up more consistently, because a few minutes reading my bible, drinking some tea, and showering seriously changes the tone of my entire day.

//I just finished reading a book {this one} and I only started it late last week. Guys. That is a sign to me that we're doing ok over here. I have time to read a book! 

//Tyler is finally six weeks old, the timeframe our doctor gave us for keeping him away from big crowds {hi, flu/rsv season}. And I couldn't be more excited. We are absolutely going out for brunch to celebrate this weekend! I don't do well staying cooped up in the house. 

//How do moms of two find time to workout in the winter? Really, I want to know. Its too cold to get outside with the kids. Tyler is too young to be dropped off at the gym daycare. I already get up between 5:30/6 just to shower and read my bible, and I honestly can't imagine getting up any earlier when I'm still feeding Tyler at night. Naptime could work, but I literally have an hour to pee, eat lunch, do the dishes, and finish the load of laundry I started that morning. After the kids go to bed? I'm not sure I could muster the energy. Anyways, this is clearly a work in progress for me. And by that, I mean I'm not working out at all right now. Eventually!

//And on a really unrelated note to just about everything else, did you know that Curious George is an extremely informative show?? I KNOW. I need to get out more. But seriously. Caleb loves it right now and its his go-to morning and post nap show, and I'm learning so much! Well, I can't actually think of any of those fun facts right this moment. But I find myself saying 'Huh! I had no idea!" during every episode.

Ok, random check in over. We're surviving over here {thriving really!}. I miss my cookies from Whole30 and we're all getting a bit smarter by watching Curious George every morning. Life is good!
