first of all let me start off by saying i am NOT pregnant. but i have had uncontrollable cravings lately! today i was sitting at home and all of a sudden i needed chocolate. not in 5 minutes... or an hour... I NEEDED IT NOW! so i made ashton bring me home some chocolate and i ate 2 whole candy bars. which i would normally never be able to do because so much sugar makes me sick. i also am hungry all the time! and i eat a lot! i was getting a little nervous that there was some sort of oops or something, so i googled craving food while breastfeeding, and it turns out a lot of people crave things like chocolate or sugar while they are breastfeeding. the reason for this post is that i am wondering if i am crazy or did any other mommies have these crazy craving while they were breastfeeding. k i am gonna go eat some cookies... :)

5 Months

Sophie at 5 months...

-she loves to bounce if you hold her under her armpits while she stands she will jump all day. but when we put her in her bouncer she doesn't know what to do.

-she loves to stand. i'm afraid she'll try to walk before she crawls.

-she can roll.

-she loves rice cereal. she's also tried pears, apples, and bananas, but she loves pears the most.

-she is now pooping 8 times a day. i only bring this up because i wonder if it's normal. she usually only goes about every other day, but now it's 8 times. i do not love this.

-she waves bye bye. but will only do it for her granny.

-size 2 diapers

-6-9 month clothes

- i have no clue how much she weighs.

-she's starting to look more like her mommy :)

-she is starting to get separation anxiety. if she realizes we have left her she will scream so we are trying to leave her with people more often so she'll get over it.

-she finally allowed us to go to all 3 meetings of church for the first time yesterday. although daddy ditched out a little early anyway :)

-she still loves watching sports and music.

-she can sleep for 8 hours straight. happy happy for me!

-she makes fart sounds with her lips. i love this.

-she laughs a lot, and it's super cute.
-she's starting to teeth, and the first tooth is coming in on top. i'm not to excited about this!!! ouchie!!!
-she's finally starting to get a little hair.

thank you note

so here is another random post. i seem to think this is more funny than everyone else does. last night i was going through a huge bin of old pictures at my parents' house and i found this thank you note in cute little kid handwriting with letters backwards and things spelled wrong. it was written by my little brother daxi. this is what is said....

on the front there was a stick figure person holding a big piece of gum with a caption saying.
"a peace of gum. oh my gosh! thank you!"

Then inside it said, "thank you for the peace of gum. my breath stinked bad. i would love to go to afghanistan and breathe and kill osadan bolatin. thank you. dax wittwer."

hahaha i love it so much. little kids are so funny. we can't figure out who it was to or anything. but i love it.

dumb, but TRUE song

I just heard this song on Good Things Utah. It's a really dumb song, but I was laughing because it's so true... You think college is hard while you're there, but the real world sucks a lot more hahahhaha. (I had to edit the song a little) hah

- I Wish I Could Go Back to College Lyrics
I wish I could go back to college. Life was so simple back then.
What would I give to go back and live in a dorm with a meal plan again!
I wish I could go back to college.In college you know who you are. You sit in the quad, and think, "Oh my gosh!I am totally gonna go far!"
How do I go back to college?I don't know who I am anymore!
I wanna go back to my room and find a message in dry-erase pen on the door!Ohhh...I wish I could just drop a class...
Or get into a play...
Or change my major...
Or kiss my T.A.
I need an academic advisor to point the way!We could be...Sitting in the computer lab,4 A.M. before the final paper is due,Cursing the world 'cause I didn't start sooner,And seeing the rest of the class there, too!
I wish I could go back to college!
How do I go back to college?!AHHHH...
I wish I had taken more pictures.
But if I were to go back to college,Think what a loser I'd be-I'd walk through the quad,And think "Oh my Gosh..."
"These kids are so much younger than me."

so i always have thoughts about all these weird random things. today it's about babies and having babies. isn't it so wierd that you grow a baby inside your belly? i mean, you make a whole person in there! that is just amazing. the whole time i was pregnant i would watch baby story on tlc and watch the women deliver babies, and i still watch it sometimes. i would always get scared because so many things can go wrong. but i must say.... it is more awesome than scary! it's like i can't wait to do it again. not literally, i can wait a couple years. but it is so amazing i will be so excited to do it again! (let's just hope the epidural doesn't take 2 hours to kick in next time) anyway, it's just so fun. you wait 9 months to meet this little thing. i never knew that 9 months was so long, and then within a couple pushes they are out and you are holding them!!!! i know this is totally random. but as i was watching baby story today i was just thinking how cool that is that we have the opportunity to create life. what a blessing!!!! the end.
