Just a quickie: 2-in-1 Shampoo and Conditioners have become a norm for this 1st time momma. My whole life I have lived by the notion that my hair (being as thick as it is), absolutely NEEDED it's own conditioner. I even went as far as bringing my own conditioner whereever I went.
Now that I'm a mom, things have changed.
Time has vanished.
And therefore, showers are much shorter. I was never a bath person to begin with (something about sitting in my own dirty water, never appealed to me) so I don't feel deprived in that department. But I do miss being able to shave my legs on a regular basis!
There are a few rare occasions where I can completely relax and enjoy. (Thank you Matthew) But all the other days...2-in-1 it is.
Happy Valentine's Day, all! Madden decided he was super excited about today and woke up at 5:30am, and instead of falling back asleep when I turned on the music, like he usually does...he stayed awake. The morning started looking brighter when Matthew came through the door with a giant balloon (that sings I might add), a sweet card, and 30 pink tulips!
As tired as I may be, I am super excited about my date tonight with Matthew! We are going to PF Changs, yummmmm! It would be awesome to add a movie to our night...but Matthew now works overnight to produce the morning show. Therefore, we will go eat and then he will drop me off at home, with a kiss goodnight. It will feel like we are dating again! Which, honestly, is kind of fun! The sleeping alone part --not so much.
On to Baby news: Madden is 9 MONTHS OLD...and stats are in:
Height: 30 in. (90th %)
Weight: 20 lbs. (25th-50th %)
Head: 45cm (50th %) <--at 6 months he was in the 10th %!!!
Our string bean is growing fast! He is pulling up on EVERYTHING...and he even lets go and stands on his own for a few seconds! He will be walking any day now : / Lord, help us!
I would love to post some recent pics, however, we had a play date yesterday with one of Madden's girlfriends, and I accidently left the camera at her house :( So you will have to wait.
I have kept silent for long enough...I can't stand the first few episodes of American Idol! I was going to post this last week after the Armadillo costume made it's appearance, but decided that my rant could wait. Until last night, when the autobot was aired. SERIOUSLY?!?!? I think it's ridiculous that these people make it on TV! This is a singing competition. I don't think it would bother me quite as much, if I didn't know that these people stood in front of 10 other 'no-name' judges, and were passed through to the celebrity judges. When I guarantee you there are other people who have good voices that don't get a chance to get the coveted golden ticket, b/c they have to make room for these idiots in hopes to boost ratings!
Just so you know...when those (I'll say it again) idiots are allowed on TV, I change the channel. I refuse to support it.
Now this next comment refers to last year...If you are above or below the age limitations you SHOULD NOT a) try out for American Idol, and b) if you do [try out], I should NOT have to watch you sing "pants on the ground"! There are other shows (America's Got Talent, The 'X' Factor, etc.) where you can showcase your talent and stay within the show's rules.
Ok, I'm done, I think. :) Now that they are in Hollywood, I can finally watch the show without screaming at the television.
on another note--Mr. Madden is now 9 months old!!! I will post his stats and whatnot later!
