First of all, I know that it's been almost three weeks since my last entry and I'm not kidding, I've thought about writing almost everyday... and everyday, something else comes up (mainly, Preston) and the day passes without a single minute to write. This whole blogging thing is a lot harder than I thought it would be (not for lack of ideas... simply a lack of time!) In fact, the only reason I'm able to write now is because I have little PJ tightly snuggled up against me in my EgoBaby Carrier (thank you, Kristen!), so for once, my hands are free :) (They're usually just like this... holding my little guy. Try putting him down- even when you think he's in a deep sleep- and he knows it within seconds!)
Two weeks later, one of my best girlfriends of all time, Preston's Auntie Kimberely, came to visit. You know you have a great friend when you haven't seen each other in nine months and you just pick up right where you left off. Kim and I have been practically joined at the hip, for more years than not, since we were 14 years old so having her out here suddenly made Colorado feel a bit more like home. We didn't do anything exciting over that weekend- a couple longs walks with the puppy and baby, some homework and a few a Kim's stir-frys- but it was one of my favorite weekends since I moved out here. I'm crossing my fingers that she'll make it out again next month with her boyfriend (and that my other three best girlfriends, Kristen, Kelsey and Hilary will get out here sometime soon... it's in the works!).
On top of that, the next semester of school just started and I'm taking Statistics and Business Law (hmmm, could I have made it anymore difficult for myself?!) The first week of Statistics really took me for a spin, but the second week has been much better, so I figure as long as I don't procrastinate, I should be fine (but of course, that in itself is not going to be easy!) Thankfully, I haven't had to guilt trip him too much (joking!) and Bubba has been really helpful with taking care of Preston while I study. It certainly helps that our baby has started smiling and cooing the past few weeks- and he is enthralled with everything his daddy does!
