I figure I should blog at least once this year

This is my toddler. Last time I blogged, she was 17 months old and now I'm starting to think about her SECOND birthday party.

I've been wanting to blog but (as cliche as it sounds) I just don't have the time. In October, I was promoted at work and I get almost zero desk time so breaks just don't exist. When I'm home, the last thing I want to do is use my brain to type a blog post but I often go to bed with one formulating in my head.

So what is new? Here is a summary:
*J is amazing. She is smart and funny and silly. She is sassy and says "NO" more than I'd like. She loves Elmo and her "ABC's" which she know says. She loves books and the old iphone. She can actually say iphone along with dozens of other words. Over the past few weeks, she will repeat anything and everything that is said to her. As you can see above, she also discovered pockets (pockies, as she calls them) and will ask if you have pockets and fully expects you to utilize your pockies if you have them!

*The same time I was promoted at work (through a long interview process), Chris also applied and interviewed for a position with his company instead of being a contractor. Our situations were so similar and we started our new (but same) jobs just days apart. We are both doing the same job duties which is good but just in more secure positions. Yay for finally being an adult!

*I'm currently training for a half marathon. I am running THIS race, just like I did in 2009. One of the reasons why I love blogging is that I have a record of my past. I'm about 5 weeks into training and up to running 5 miles straight. It hurts but I'm getting there!

If I can find the energy and brain power, I would love to blog about motherhood more. There is so much to say. Until next time.....
