I can't believe January is over and February is here already! Part of me is sad the month went so fast, and the other part is happy because it means warmer weather is closer!! I wanted to post an update about my resolutions at the end of each month, and of course I'm already behind :)
My first resolution was to try more things that I pin on Pinterest. I think I've done pretty good at achieving this goal. We have made a couple meals that I've pinned this month, and they all turned out pretty well. Some of the meals we tried were: Skillet Chili Mac, and Crockpot Italian Chicken. They both were a success and we will probably make them again! Now I need to try some of the non food stuff I pinned next month!
Next was trying to read more books. Thanks to Konnor being awake so much at night, I've actually read several books in January! While he's awake and I'm trying to get him to go back to sleep I usually read books on my phone. I've also been reading the library books I get a lot quicker. So I'm definitely happy with that resolution!
The scrapbook resolution I am not doing so well on. I don't think I did any pages the whole month of January. I better get to work in February if I'm going to finish it by the end of this month.
Running is also another resolution I've been slacking on. It's been so cold and gross outside. I know that those are just excuses and that I really could find a way to make it happen. I think I may try and find a 5k in March or April to sign up for so I have some motivation to run again. I really really want to run again, I just don't want to do it when it's really dark out around here because there aren't many safe places, and I would prefer it to be a little warmer :)
Writing on the blog more was another resolution. I've been trying to write more, but I don't think I've been very successful at this either. Hopefully there will be more exciting things going on in February to write about. Konnor's library classes start tomorrow, and swimming starts next week so that will be exciting!
The last resolution I had listed was to be outside with Konnor all summer. I definitely haven't done that one yet, but I really hope when the weather gets warmer that Konnor and I can be outside all the time. We do try and go out in the yard as often as we can when the weather is above freezing :)
So that's the update for January! So far the year hasn't been too exciting. I'm hoping as the weather gets warmer and we find more activities for Konnor that things will get a little better. He's still waking up every night and staying awake for a couple hours most nights which stinks. I can't tell if the reason he's waking up is still from teething or not. He still has a couple more teeth to get so it probably is! Other than that, he's been walking all over and talking up a storm. He's starting to say more words, and he likes trying to repeat what we say. He likes to tell the dogs "down" and "sit". My favorite is when he tries to say "slam dunk" after he makes a basket in his bathtub basketball hoop. He tries to say "banana" and "yogurt" and he is doing a great job with his sign language for "more" and "please"!
