Football Life: Yes, I still talk about football from time to time ;) I am pretty excited about the Super Bowl this year- I'm hoping for a good game and ultimately for a Falcons win. I pretty much always root for the NFC team when it comes to the SB. Also, I don't know if I can actually buy another team's gear, but I am tempted to get this for the game because it's so darn cute! I still miss being on the "inside" with the NFL but the fact that the Bengals were awful this year helped me not miss it quite so much. Onto the combine and the draft- wahoo!
Home Life: If you follow along on Instagram you've probably noticed lots of painting, cleaning and just general dirty work going on over here. The people at Lowe's miiiight know me by name at this point. There are some big things happening in this area of life and I plan to share more later this week!
Fitness Life: Although I think some of the housework I've done lately should qualify for working out, I'm still trying to fit in a few workouts a week. I've been doing a little jogging on our treadmill and have been pleasantly surprised by zero hip pain and the fact that I finally don't "feel" my c-section scar when I work out. I've also done a few barre3 videos at home and... OUCH.
Work Life: Sometimes I almost forget I have a part-time job- I enjoy it that much! If you missed that info back in October, I work from home as a virtual assistant and it is going really well. I've taken on new things as the months have gone on, and they might be bumping up my hours a little in the next month or so, which is cool. It's insanely flexible and I truly can't believe I've been given this opportunity. I love feeling like I'm still contributing to our family while I'm at home with T.
Mom Life: My little baby is not so little anymore! He's definitely over 20 pounds, though I won't know an official weight until his February checkup. The past 8 months have been the fastest of my life. He'll be 8 months on Thursday and though I'll probably say this every month, things are just SO fun with him right now. Despite some teething grouchiness we still have so much fun every day. I love watching his little mind work as he soaks in something new or as he starts to recognize various things, places, etc.
-He has 2 adorable teeth that I cannot stop staring at.
-Loves to eat "real" food and pretty much likes everything we give him.
-Still sleeps 12 hours straight every night like clockwork.
-Always chomping/licking on something.. babies are so gross.
-Not crawling yet but scooting around on his belly and rolling like crazy to get where/what he wants.
-Loves to stand and jump with our assistance.
-Always lets out a belly laugh or squeal when he sees himself in the mirror.
-Super ticklish on his belly, back and feet.
-Loves music and when I sing to him.
-IS THE BEST BABY IN ALL THE LAND!! I'm not biased or anything, but man we have a sweet little boy. I'm cherishing every stage and every moment I can because it's flying by.
Hopefully this life update will get me back into the swing of blogging in 2017 because I have so much I want to write about... must.make.time! ;)
