we are here, we are happy. i just never seem to get around to posting it! are some of my recent thoughts:
henry is 11 months old and i hate that. 
i said i would only nurse until he turned one, but now i don't know if i can stick to that. it's just so sweet!
but...i want baby #3 to come sooner rather than nursing may have to stop soon, 
and i'm really bummed about it. 

thomas is so old! he still flies/drives anything he can find. he still launches 'rockets'
several times a day. he is also into 'mighty heros,' namely the original superman cartoon. 
he wears a cap and super hero mask around a lot, and it kills me. i want to eat him up. 

we just went to disney world, and holy cow, that place is nuts! 
thomas had so much fun! he rode big kid rides, and wasn't even scared on 
splash mountain. actually, after we went down the big drop off at the end, 
he turned to me and said 'where's the really big one?' my little guy is so big!

steven's summer schedule has turned out to be amazing. i was dreading the fact that he has
mph classes when all other med students have the summer off. 
but his classes are only 3 days a week for a few hours, so it's very much
like we are on vacation. plus, he still gets financial aid, and we get to stay here
for the summer. we have done a lot of working out and swimming in the evenings. 

i want to train for a half marathon, but it sounds daunting. training day one starts tomorrow. when i consider that it's 13 miles, it sounds doable. but the thought of a half marathon just seem 
so much harder. i'm going to do it though.  

i don't know if we are going to be able to go to oregon this summer, which is so sad. thomas 
asks to go to oregon multiple times a week. it's also a bummer that henry 
will have his first birthday and nobody will be here but us. and thomas will
have his fourth birthday here,too. but, such is life.

henry is a horrible sleeper. i try and try and try...and he still wins most of the time. 
now that we are back from florida it seems to have gotten a bit better, but man he
has given me a run for my money. he's so dang cute though, it's hard to be mad at him. 
i think heavenly father does that on purpose. 

our 5th anniversary is in 3 days. i seriously can't believe it's already been 5 years. 
it has been the best 5 years of my life....cliche as that may be. i may complain about silly
things, or get frustrated about the never-ending cycle of laundry, but i really 
have all i could want. i have it pretty great. i sometimes text steven
in the middle of the day to tell him that i 
am spoiled because i'm playing in a pool with two cute boys on a tuesday
afternoon. not such a bad life, eh? 

here are just a few pictures from disney world...we were too busy to take a ton.
