I’m currently re-reading The Dresden Files series… very slowly since I don’t get a whole lot of reading time in right now. If anything, I read blogs when I have time since that doesn’t take much time. I’ve been getting into more of a reading mood, it’s just not something that can be easily done while interacting with a baby and a crazy toddler.
Sooo excited that Downton Abbey is back! There are not enough exclamation points. If you already watch it, you know how exciting this is. I’m a little bummed that so many characters from the first three seasons are gone, and I’m not entirely thrilled with the return of one character, but I’m looking forward to this season. Sure, I could just buy it and watch it all at once, but it’s nice to spread it out and force myself to wait each week for the next episode. I also just watched the first season of ‘The Taste’ on Hulu and I’m surprisingly into it and looking forward to this upcoming season. The only problem with these shows is how hungry I end up getting and then despondent because I’ll never come up with anything half as creative or have the motivation to do so. :p We also just started watching ‘Eureka’ thanks to my brother’s suggestion and now have to find time for all of the shows we’re enjoying. Ha ha.
As for movies… we’ve watched quite a handful lately thanks to Netflix and often feeling too unmotivated in the evening to do anything, but sit down and put our feet up, usually in bed with the baby in between us if she isn’t up eating. Most recently we watched ‘The World’s End’, which had a lot of funny moments, and gets thumbs up from us. Also ‘The Heat’, which was pretty entertaining as well.
Attempting to eat healthier… I’m getting back into a smoothie mood, and it makes it easier that Enzo also likes smoothies and it’s an easy way that I can sneak in some veggies since he hasn’t been enjoying them much lately. I’m going to slowly add more and more green gradually so he doesn’t suspect, plus it’s good for me too. I picked up some chia seeds and with some luck I can start losing the linger baby weight pounds. I did, however, get an ice cream maker… somewhat counterproductive in terms of losing weight, but hello the endless ice cream possibilities!!
It’s probably not a surprise that I’m going to say… Phoebe! Ha ha. I love my little Toots (as in Tootsie) aka Toots McGee, Lady and Ladybug. She’s such a happy little girl, and I could eat her up, especially when she tries to laugh. It’s funny how much more petite she is than Enzo… I wonder if she’ll always stay petite or not. At this age, I think Enzo was an inch or two longer than her and a couple pounds heavier as well.
A lot, and probably worrying too much as well. First and foremost I want to motivate myself to lose the baby weight… the hardest part is finding time to work out with a full-time job and a toddler and a baby. I already get up at 5:00am and could maybe fit in a very short workout in that time, but it all depends on if the baby ate before that time or not. I also don’t want to work out too late at night either… so I’ll have to figure something out. We also want to eat healthier, but that can also be tricky when we have so little time in the evenings to prepare meals and you have a toddler hanging off of you because he wants a “nack” and doesn’t want to wait for dinner even though he had a “nack” 30 minutes ago. Oh, the impatient toddler.
