Adult world

I realized this morning that Paxton really lives in an adult world. Especially when he thinks his stuffed bear is his best friend. He was sharing his food and holding the bear's hand and talking to him like he was real. Being the only grandchild on both sides leaves him with no cousins to play with. I try to get him together with other kids when possible but for the most part he hangs out with mom and dad. I guess I know the solution for that would be having another baby. But I just cant bring myself to terms with being pregnant right now. And somedays Paxton really pushes my patience and then I think I am crazy for even entertaining the idea of another one. If your a mom Im sure you know the feeling. This week he has been sleeping horrible and getting up 2 times a night. I cant remember being this tired and I dont even have a newborn in the house. I guess I am just used to sleeping like 9 hours a night straight. I realize how selfish that sounds and maybe I just need to jump in feet first and go for it.

Too much love

I love this little boy so much. I have decided that once a week that Paxton and I are going to have a day for just the two of us. Now I know that I have these days almost everyday with Paxton but we are going to do stuff together. Life gets so crazy and busy that sometimes I forget to stop and look how much this little boy is growing up. I am always cleaning, working, doing laundry and everything else that sometimes I think I take this sweet boy for granite. So today we went and got lunch and took it to the park. Paxton thought this was the greatest idea ever. The weather today couldnt have been more perfect either, it was so nice outside. Next week who knows what we will do, maybe we will go to lunch and the aquarium. I just feel like I need to take him on little day trips once a week to get out of the house and to spend one on one time with mommy.

Half Marathon

I ran my first half marathon on Saturday. Since it was on Halloween we were aloud to dress up and their was this girl who ran the full 13.1 miles in a wedding dress. Im not in this picture but I thought it was hilarious. She had a sign that said runaway bride.
This is me at mile 10 and I am just getting a drink and walking for a minute.
This is me at mile 12 and look at my face. I am pretty tired by this point.
Here I come approaching the finish line. I was so tired by this point all I wanted to do was cross the finish line.
Here is me, Teresa, and Jennica. We have been training together since July for this run. I seriously love these girls and was so glad I had them by my side for this amazing race.
My mom brought Paxton down and came to a couple of the stops to cheer me on. Also my friends Bailey and Megan were there to support me. This race was one of the hardest things I have done mentally and physically. I loved everystep of it and I am seriously so proud of myself. I didnt finish in the time I wish I would of. It took me 2 hours and 21 minutes and I was hoping for 2 hours and 10 minutes. But I am doing one in St George so hopefully I can redeem myself. Thanks everyone for the support.
