::: Going through the old posts has me not hating the idea of being pregnant again. We're not ready - but it's nice to finally not be dreading going through that process again.
::: Life has been all sorts of crazy. We've had tons of guests (friends are here now from Iowa, actually), tons of trips, and have felt like we've just been in a hamster wheel. I leave Monday for 3.5 weeks in Chicago and I have A LOT to do in order to get ready for it.
::: Leo has been on quite a few airplanes, but each age scares me more than the last time he flew. I have a feeling this flight is going to be pretty exhausting. I'm planning to save a few of his birthday toys to pull out on the flight for some novelty, keep him eating and drinking bottles whenever he will take them, and crossing my fingers he will nap in the ergo. I'll be earning my keep around here I have a feeling.
::: I am so excited to be in Chicago during early October! The weather for next week looks like absolute perfection and I'm giddy at the chance to put Leo in some darling sweaters and pants!
::: I have my first ever Maid of Honor speech coming up in a few weeks and its starting to give me some anxiety. Any tips for how to write a sweet, cute, easy, and touching speech (besides not drinking too many glasses of champagne?
::: Can we go back to the part where Leo is turning one this week? Like, what the hell!!!!!!!!!
::: I still have no idea what he is wearing to his birthday party. We're having a causal party on Saturday, but I just haven't found the right thing for him. I don't want to invest too much money in a "I'm One" outfit since he won't wear it too often, but I may just end up going that route since I'm waiting for the last minute.
::: I'm so glad that fall TV is back! Joel and I don't have tons of shows that we watch, but we both love Modern Family, Black-ish, and a few other light comedies that we're ready to see again. And I'm still very much so obsessed with Kim and Kroy and think they're adorable (although she needs to stop ruining her face).
::: My workouts and eating are so off lately. I'm blaming my hectic schedule, but it has me feeling like shit lately. I need to be better about not letting off routine weeks throw off my health, but they have been and I need to fix that before I do some serious damage.
::: I really want to grab a wifi SIM card and start using my DSLR a little more often. Obviously the iPhone is so handy, but my nice camera is collecting dust and it would be nice to have a few really quality pictures of Leo.
::: When I got back from Austin, I was so excited to see Leo and after the first minute, he wanted nothing to do with me! It broke my heart! Every time Joel would walk out of a room, Leo would burst into tears and only wanted to be held by daddy! He really made me pay for leaving him for 3 days!!
