Sunday... What a day!

Why does it always seem the weekends take FOREVER to get here and then they are gone just like that? Tomorrow is already Monday.. I am not ready for it!

It is only 8 and I am ready for bed! I thought Sunday was supposed to be a day of rest! We slept until almost 10:30, but I haven't sat down since then until now. We went MAJOR grocery shopping, then home to get stuff done around the house. Ryan did a lot outside while I got stuff done inside. It was a very productive day, but I am exhausted!

Meanwhile Joshua is napping right now... he has been for almost an hour and a half. Needless to say he won't be ready for bed when I am! Oh well we have a comfy couch and a nice big TV. I can sit up with him all night :) He is starting to get a cough now too so I feel bad waking him up. I will definitely pay for it later though... ugh.

I am planning on cooking something for dinner every day this week! And for me, that's a big deal. I don't know how to cook very well, even though I have told myself over and over that I am going to learn. I am going to make lasagna tomorrow, so hopefully it will turn out good. And of course Tuesday is Taco Tuesday, so that's an easy meal! But I am still planning out the rest of the week. Hopefully I won't lose motivation when the time actually comes to make dinner haha

well I should probably wake up my little boy... or maybe I will go take a bath before he wakes up on his own. hmm decisions, decisions! I feel like reading some more of my book. :) Have a great week everyone, hopefully it won't be as long as last week was...

Well last night Joshua decided he wanted to wake up at midnight... right when I was getting ready to go to bed! So I fed him and ended up reading until almost 2... which was a bad idea! He woke up again at 2:30 and again at 5:30... what a night! He woke up at 7:30 and I gave up on getting anymore sleep. If he wants to be up then I guess I should too! Well we took a nap from about 9:30 to 11 so I was a little more rested! He has been sleeping a lot today so we will see how tonight goes...

We finally bought him a swing today! Image and video hosting by TinyPic

he loves it! And we got a great deal on it at the px so thats exciting :) I bought a couple picture frames at the PX planning on finally getting up new family pictures and I forgot them in the cart! Good thing they were only a couple dollars each... but I was so excited to get them up!

Well my little man is being fussy again...His tummy has been icky all day :( hopefully he will start feeling better soon because it is taking a lot out of me. I feel so bad for him!

The start of something new...

So I decided yet again to start a blog... I have started at least twice in the last year or so and never kept up with it. I am really going to try to do this one for all of our friends and family in Minnesota. I will try and post pictures all the time and keep you guys up to date on our life.

It is finally the weekend! This week has been a long one... Ryan has been working long hours and has been sick on top of it. I was sick for a couple days as well, and I think Joshua is starting to get it now too. It is no fun having a sick 8 week old! He is sleeping a lot though so hopefully it will pass quickly! Joshua is getting so big. He is smiling non-stop now, and he is doing it on purpose! No more gas smiles :) I am amazed at how fast he is growing and how much more he is looking like Ryan every day. He is definitely a Strickland!

This is one of the pictures I took for 6 week pictures... it ended up being closer to 7 weeks and he is now 8 weeks and they still haven't been sent out! ITs tough only having one car and having a husband who works constantly. Gotta love the army life ;)
