Where Am I?

I don't really know who reads my blog anymore, but I do know there are a few of you who check in looking for updates on AJ and are pleased when new pictures and videos are posted. Life has been crazy hectic with work and and sadly, I don't do nearly as many fun things with AJ as I used to. Don't get me wrong- we have tons of fun still- but we don't go places where I would typically bring my camera. So, I often think about blogging and wonder what I will write about!

Tonight wasn't anything crazy, but he wasn't feeling well so I took him to Blockbuster and we rented Tarzan. He wanted to lay on my bed and watch it (meaning on my laptop) and eat crackers and drink milk. It was Friday night, I hadn't seen him in 2 days and this sounded perfect! So, we got in our PJ's and snuggled up on the bed and goofed around, talked, had a pillow fight and just laughed a lot. It was awesome. To top it off, I got a lot of hugs and kisses which made my night. :) I've been missing him desperately lately.

Then, I had him all tee'd up to take a picture- he was sitting there with such a nice smile and camera broke! UGH! So, I had to take them on my phone. Those pictures aren't ever very good. But it's better than nothing!

Here they are:

Tomorrow is going to be fun. It's supposed to be warmer outside (40's) and we still have tons of snow. So we're going sledding! Then tomorrow night, we're going to AJ's best friend Dax's 3rd birthday party! We can't wait!

I Missed Him So!

I left AJ for the longest stretch so far this weekend and I had a great time, but I missed my boy!

I went to California for a long weekend (4 nights) and decided since it would involve many things that would not be kid friendly, that I would leave AJ in Colorado. It was seriously a tough decision- I never thought I'd go back to California and not bring him- but it was for the best.

I'm lucky to have so many people that love AJ and are willing to watch him. He spent a few nights with Grandma and Papa and then a few nights with Jason. From the sounds of it, they all had a great time and AJ was his normal good self.

While in California, I got to talk to AJ on the phone each day and one time got to Skype with him which was wonderful. I missed him sooo much! Coming home tonight and just hugging and kissing him and talking to him made me so happy! (and he was pretty happy too!)

I had a wonderful time in California- ran my first 1/2 marathon. I had hoped to do it in less than 2 hours and I did it in 1 hour and 55 minutes. I was pretty thrilled! (and now I'm in a ton of pain) The weather was perfect and had a great time visiting Matt and Kristin. They were amazing hosts! Thanks guys!
