Fall, Grandparents, and learning new things!

Wow! I haven't blogged in a quite a bit! This past weekend Josh, Lex and I went to visit his grandparents in Washington. Its always fun to go but this time was different because we had Lex. Having a baby adds so much more responsibility to your life! I don't regret having her one bit it just makes some things harder. We didn't get much sleep because Lex didn't like sleeping in her play pin/bassinet. The last night we were there Josh got a combined total of 4 hours of sleep and I got a combined total of 5. It was rough! And car trips are no longer a walk in the park. When we went before, we may have had to stop once to use the restroom but this time we had to stop for a couple times and let Lex stretch her legs and just be out of the car seat. Luckily on the way back she slept for three quarters of the trip! Which was DEFINITELY A GOOD THING because she was so crabby. I totally understand though because she was (and still is) teething really bad and she wasn't feeling good because of it, she didn't have her own bed in her own room (which I think was harder on us LOL), and she wasn't at home in her normal routine. All in all it was good to see Josh's grandparents and get to spend time with them hanging out and playing Mexican Train!

I can totally tell its fall now! For the first time in a while (especially because I was pregnant and not super cold) I am wearing a sweatshirt and sweats! It feels comfy! In my opinion, a sweatshirt (just for lounging around the house) should be big and like you can wrap your whole body in it if necessary! I can't believe we will be celebrating our first Thanksgiving, CHRISTmas, and New Years with Lexi this year! Soon after that she will be a year old! I can't believe how fast time is flying! I feel like just yesterday we brought her home from the hospital and how overly emotional I was! That night I was introduced to Impractical Jokers which gave me something to laugh about after being so emotionally exhausted and tired!

Last night I did something new! I have always seen the broiler setting on my oven and never really used it! I used it last night to cook Josh some chicken. OH MY GOSH! I will never ever go back! How the heck did I not know about this little treasure! Seriously! I'm going to do steak next and see if I can make myself a medium steak! Which by the way would be the first time ever! I always over cook it! You have NO idea how excited I am! I am loving trying new things. Who knows what else is in store for me!
