I'm pretty much terrible at making regular, good, homemade meals every night for dinner. Thankfully I have Tim and he likes to cook AND eat so it's a win win for him to make dinner a couple times a week. Yesterday Tim was making something that his mom would make for him and I started looking through a church cookbook my mom gave me a while back. There were so many of her recipes and recipes of others that she would make that are sooo easy looking! It made me wonder why I always thought my mom used like 30 ingredients in every meal when she really only used like 6! I was always so impressed with her (and I still am!) but now I know I can be like her! So now I am determined to make yummy food for my family! Tonight we are grilling but I am totally making her delicious french bread to go with dinner. And then Taron's mom's banana chocolate chip muffins. And then maybe some cookies. Sheesh, am I pregnant or what?!

I just woke up from a nap and I have a lot on my mind! First, they are tearing down the houses across the street that we used to live in. I'll probably do a separate post for that because it's sad, but I'm sort of enjoying watching them just crush everything. It's really interesting and gives you that demolition derby kind of thrill.

Juliet is still sleeping! She was being super fussy so I put her down at like 10:45 and listened to her talk for about 20 minutes before she finally fell asleep and now she's still down! She has been a great sleeper lately; both at nap time and night time and it has been so great for me to be able to sleep through the night uninterrupted. I'm still nervous about when we put baby #2 in the room with Juliet so I'm getting all my sleep now I guess. Juliet was out of our room at like 7 weeks, but I hate to put a new baby in her room that keeps waking up in the middle of the night. Any suggestions?

Tim is a german TA on campus now so he works one less night at his other job. It is so nice having him home even just one more night a week to help with things like dinner, baths, and getting Juliet to bed. He really likes his german stuff too so that makes me happy that he's getting to use the language again more frequently.

I feel like his graduation is creeping up on us and it makes me nervous sometimes. I guess we really don't even know where I'll be having this baby since we don't know where we are going. I don't like knowing these things because it makes me more nervous than I probably need to be. But even not knowing when the baby will actually come is stressful because I want to utilize the time my mom comes to help :)

Juliet's awake :) She is a sweet baby and we are so grateful to have her.
