i may or may not be trying to take a photo every day. but i can't say that, or it won't happen. sooo... i just happen to be taking daily.. consecutive... photographs. 

oh well!

this was thanksgiving with the savage family. i was pretty sick at this point, so gray just got passed around all day, to eat people and sleep with them.

happy thanksgiving

i'm thankful for these two boys. they're the best people i know, and i love them forever. i'm thankful i get to spend all weekend with them, and not out in lines shopping :) i'm thankful we're leaving in a little bit to go spend time with loud, crazy family.

happy thanksgiving!

photoshop babysitting

apparently this is what keeps kids entertained when they're all snow-ed out :) 

(please forgive the sloppy-ness... kids also have short attention spans!)

if you're not a fan of people bragging, don't read this post. but it's my blog, so i can do what i want :)

having a baby is different. awesome. but different. we don't really take naps anymore. we don't sleep in. we don't even go running together (gray is evidently NOT a fan of the jogging stroller ;)). but we do have an awesome baby to hang out with all the time, so it's definitely okay!

however, more often than i'd like to admit, gray and i spend the day in pajamas and don't get a ton accomplished. so when i do accomplish a thing or two, i feel pretty good. when i accomplish more than two things, i feel amazing. i feel like bragging!

today, i...

did three hours of accounting.
edited a photo session.
caught up on photo e-mails.
made, stored and froze chicken stock (SO easy to make, i don't know why i never had before...)
did two loads of dishes.
did a load of laundry. 
tidied the house.
got gray a high chair.
went grocery shopping.
made THE best pulled pork sandwiches and homemade bbq sauce (with my own changes).
went running.
cleaned up the kitchen (i always make a huge mess when i cook).
smooched my husband.
bathed my baby.
... and i should probably take a shower.

feel free to be impressed now :) because tomorrow, i probably won't do much. but i will vote! and go see wreck it ralph! both very important things...

ps- i should probably point out that nick is amazing, and worked all day, also went running, cleaned the jogging stroller, fixed the jogging stroller, and put our kid to bed :)

pps- i hate blog posts without photos. so here's my cute baby!
