No there's nothing wrong with your eyeballs!

So I know I'm a loser blogger.  So since it's only been 2 months since my last post you'd think this would be action packed.  Sadly I do not lead such a life.  My life is very normal take care of my baby, sleep when I can, work, sleep take care of baby... I know... RIVETING!  You can't wait to scroll and see what else could possibly happen!  Anyway my sweet man Jacob is now today actually 9 and 1/2 months old!  He's so cute!  And hilarious I laugh so hard everyday!  He's now a MAN and drinks from a sippy cup!  (Except he's a bit of a binge drinker, in that, whatever liquid is in his sippy cup he will finish in 20 minute time frame.  So needless to say he tests just how dry the Pampers Baby Dry diapers can hold.  He was winning that battle but mommy has since gotten smarter and doesn't give him that much liquid in his sippy cup!)  I know PAGE TURNER!  Jake is standing more and more by himself.  Dan and I are just waiting for him to take those steps he's so close.  He'll hold our fingers and walk fabulously and basically sprint behind his push toy.  I'm torn with how I feel about this because I'm so excited to see it and I can't wait for all the fun that we'll have once he walks.  Running outside, hide and seek, just seeing what all he's interested in now that nothing really can hold him back.  But I'm sad to just one more thing that he's becoming a toddler and less of a baby.  I think I held him for the first 2 weeks of his life and that seems so long ago and those moments weren't enough!  We just put him in bed we don't rock anymore so our cuddle times are less and less.  Oh well!  That's what kids are supposed to do grow up.  Anyway my son is 22# 15 oz and 31 inches tall!  HUGE!  We took him to the Cincinnati Zoo (which is excellent and everyone should go wether you have kids or not) he petted a goat and LOVED it.  

My new job starts October 6th.  Sorry to my North friends you all are great, good luck, and I'll miss all of you!  Can't wait until GNO!  I'm excited about weekend option.  I have so many plans cleaning and organizing my house.  I was just telling my husband tonight how I feel we live day to day we just make sure we have clean clothes for that day and food and things like that so I am looking forward to not having a laundry room with Mt. Everest piles and utilizing my closet and maybe don't tell my mother making my bed.  In early August I got a heck of a deal on new bedding from Macy's and I think I may even want to make my bed at least!  WHO AM I???  I am really embracing this wife mommy thing.  I feel like when maternity leave was over I lost myself which I'm sure a lot of new mom's feel.  And now I can finally feel the old me coming out and being better and more motivated.  I'm so sick of my body I can't stand it!  And just know the weight issues with myself and in my family history it really makes me want to be more active for my son.  Behaviors are learned at home and a lot by example.  Yes I know he doesn't know I'm the BIGGEST I've ever been, nor does he care, nor will he remember but I want to be able to play with him and shoot toddlers are active little bugers you got to be in shape to handle that!  So basically to the point with the new hours I'm going to be working my goals are to be a better me which is mom & wife.  I love being those things.  So wish me luck!  I've got a TON of work to do!  Take care!  (and no I don't know how this became underlined!)
