This not blogging every day is really helping me. I know that might bum some of you out, and I'm really sorry, but I just can't do it everyday if the first time I sit down to do it is 9pm. My energy is zapped by then, and if I'm editing and uploading pictures or video and writing a post it can sometimes take up to two hours. And I'd just rather be sleeping. Another thing is that it is extremely hard to find something to blog about when we've been in the house all day. Really, if I blogged about our day everyday, it would go something like this:
Hi friends. Today we changed diapers, watched Blues Clues, tried some solids, ate a bottle, did bath, did dressing change, ate another bottle, took a nap while being held, played in the floor, played in the exersaucer, watched Gabba and/or Sesame Street, played with our cars, read some books, played in the high chair, tried more solids, ate another bottle, maybe took another nap, played with our ball popper, played with our basketball goal, took meds, popped blisters, aquaphored our face, and went to bed.
It's getting tough to come up with blogging material and having to write about how boring it can get around here and how cold and unforgiving the weather has been doesn't make for fun posts, that's for sure. So...
I'll try to continue blogging three or four times a week, but I can't do daily anymore (as I assume you've already figured out). Feel free to pray for two hour naps in the crib, and I'll be glad to go back to daily blogging. :)
Mom and Shaina babysat Jonah last night so Matt and I went to Sagebrush. A while back I signed up with Coupon Mom and got a code for $25 restaurant gift certificates for only $5 (or something like that), and Sagebrush was one of the ones we had a coupon for. You had to spend at least $35 to get $25 off, so needless to say, we ate way too much. It was awesome.
I wanted to show you Jonah's birthday invitation. Heather over at PictureItCards did it for me. She also did his birth announcement and our Christmas card which I've posted on other occasions. I sent some invitations and invited some people through word of mouth, email, or Facebook. I just couldn't afford to send that many people a real invitation. I would love to be able to invite all of you, but it just wasn't possible. Plus, I want to be able to really BE at and in the party. I don't want to feel too stretched. I DO want to meet everybody sometime though (at least you more local folks). We'll have to work that out. :)
So with no further ado, here it is:
Completely adorable, right?
I do have some cute videos of Jonah I want to try to post soon, but I'm STILL trying to figure out my new camera. It takes great video but is a lot more complicated. There's dubbing and editing and the process of just getting them from memory card to computer is a lot more involved. I'm working on it though. I hope they'll be worth the wait.
Anyway, I feel like his post was a whole lotta nothin' (except for the cute invitation, of course). Sorry about that. Today and tomorrow are supposed to be cold still, but Matt says it's supposed to be in the 50's Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. I think Jonah's ready for swinging at the park (we've never been), so I hope to get to go this weekend.
Hope everybody has a Happy Wednesday.
