Isn't she just adorable! She is getting SO big and she just loves to talk! She has an opinion on everything! It is quite funny to hear what she has to say. Currently, we are working with nap time. I think she has decided that she is too old for nap time. haha. Not happening. I think this started because she has RSV and for a while would wake up during naps and many times during the night with coughing fits. She is getting better though. She slept through the night last night and through her nap today. She wouldn't go down till four when I made her lay next to me for an hour until she fell asleep. I should have just given up, but I was too tired.
This is her new dress from her Grandma Nelson. Isn't it so cute! I am so excited for Spring. Clothes are so much cuter in the spring. I figured I could dress her in spring clothes since we aren't really going any where till she gets a little better. She also has an ear infection right now so we are kind of home bound. Anyways, have a great day!

PS.the pictures worked because I did it in photo booth. Still working on how to upload pictures! I will figure it out...eventually.
Okay, so the workout thing has failed. For my second and third day it SNOWED like CRAZY! i wasn't about to go out and run in that! haha Sad, I know. I think I will start again tomorrow morning since I don't have school till the evening. I will let you know if it happens.

1 day down. I've decided my first goal is 6 days a week for at least 30 minutes for 1 week. Very doable. I will reassess my goals next Thursday. haha

The first day went pretty well I think. I ran/jogged a lot farther than I thought I could. I know it was less than a mile. I went all the way down to the park without stopping. Walked around the park and started my jog back. So far, so good. On the way home, I started and stopped like six times, not so great. I got distracted on the way home. Here are a few things I noticed. A lady spray painting a little kids wooden high-chair. Bird sitting zone with TONS of poo right where I ran. Dr. Barney Clark memorial. He pioneered artificial hearts and became the first recipient. Our apartment telephone number which I called to report a broken disposal and stopped up sink. First run, very successful. Music of choice, Opera. Primarily Pavarotti.
Okay, so I saw that a friend of mine was beginning a work out log on her blog. I am going to start doing that to kind of hold myself accountable. I have never been a big exerciser. EXCEPT when I lived in Hawaii. I ran a couple of miles a couple of times a week. I have always wanted to be in good shape. SO THIS IS WHAT I AM GOING TO DO. Everyday I am going to record how far I ran. At first it will probably be only around the block, but I feel if I write it down, then I will be pushing myself to keep with it. We will see how it goes. Please make sure I do this everyday. I do want to get in shape and now is a great time to do it! Thanks!

So for Christmas, I got a new camera. Jared and I have been playing and experimenting with it. I can't upload many because I am still having issues with Blogspot. My most recent subjects are Lauren and her fiance and of course my daughter. Here are a few samples!

This next one is a fav. I learned how to focus certain parts and blur everything else. Notice her ring is in focus and that is about it! So fun. Thanks for being patient with me guys!
This is my little monster. Taking pictures of her is almost painful She WILL NOT hold still. I took about 40 pictures and got about 4 decent ones. Isn't she sooo cute! Love her!

More pictures to come as soon as I can make amends with blogspot. It took me forever to get these few to upload and they are WAY downsized. I don't know what to do. Whatever! Enjoy!
