It's a Stomach Implant

I'm not fat it's a stomach implant. -courtesy of my favorite comedian of the moment-Jim Gaffigan

Most comedians have their funny parts and their not-so-funny parts, but I laugh so hard through his entire skit. [go youtube (yes I just verbed that) his hotpocked skit...or all of it for that matter..hilarious]

I really need to jump on the weight-losing bandwagon. Perhaps not even that, but I really need to tighten up some specific parts. The fact that my belly grew large enough to qualify for its own zip code doesn't exactly make for a nice-looking body now. And apparently my hips grew which isn't exactly surprising, but it is a little depressing to have to move up pant sizes. Such is life, I suppose. Alas, I don't see a tummy tuck in the budget, so pilates (and firming lotion) it is. Cutting out the junk food would be helpful too, but we all know about my self control in that area.

My house looks like it was hit by a tornado. Unfortunately, no one is sending in aid relief to help me, so I'll be picking it up on my own. If only I had time. I spend all day at school these days, and when I get home, I just want to snuggle my baby. So instead of cleaning and organizing which I'm just itching to do, I sit here and imagine what I wish my house could look like. I need to create a master list and just tackle a few things at a time. It's so overwhelming.

I can't express how sick and tired I am of being DEAF in one ear. I think it's congestion-induced, but it's annoying, and nothing will work to fix it. I feel as if I have no concept of volume at the moment because my hearing is so lopsided.

My first week of student teaching was a success and my love for teaching was absolutely reaffirmed. I love working with those kids, and I can't wait to see what the remainder of the semester brings. I did have to punish two little devils kids for calling Obama a "brownie," which was a little hard because of how hilarious they found this and their contagious giggles. But I successfully stopped them...straight-faced. I had my first session of capstone seminar at the university today. For some reason, it reminded me of something like a giant summer camp coming to a close. You know, you usually are split into groups, see the other kids in passing every once in awhile and then you all come together at the end. This is the light at the end of the tunnel-what a milestone it is to know we're all together to support one another in the last step of the program. I graduate in four months and I can hardly wait!

My little Rooster is finally over her first cold, thank goodness. At times, I can tell she still has a bit of a stuffy nose, but she's doing great. Her little personality is starting to shine through and it's just fun. She smiles so much and it just lights up my life. She has learned to blow bubbles, she sticks her tongue out at you if you encourage her, she coos and "talks" and she has found her fingers.

I mourn the loss of my teeny tiny baby but look forward to seeing all of the growth to come. I'm so sad she'll never be small and you can never really appreciate the fact that kids grow so fast until you have one. It was one of those things that people just said all the time prior to my childbearing years, but sadly it's entirely too true. I constantly think about my pregnacy and replay my labor. She's not that wrinkly, squaking newborn that's wrapped so neatly in a tight little swaddle. I guess there isn't really a way to get over that-she'll never be my teeny tiny baby again. And I don't know how many kids we'll have but I do know that I don't aspire to be like Michelle Duggar and have 18, so I can only do this a few times-I want to soak up every single second of it.
