2012 Challenges: July – Top 5

It’s been 9 days of vacation and fun in the California sun. Now we’re back to sleep training, HURRAY! Not. What better time to blog than now? Here’s proof that babies don’t have long term memory. A month ago, we would do Porter’s night routine, he would give me a hug and then asked to be put down to sleep (for 10-11 hours). Now he is crying like he’s being held hostage against his will. Let me assure everyone that this sucks for all of us, but there’s no comparison to the agony felt when no one gets a solid nights sleep. Alas, this too shall pass. 

Onto the July challenge! I hope you enjoyed June’s Bucket List challenge. It was my favorite so far and I highly recommend everyone come up with at least a few items to put on your own bucket list. Since we were vacationing for the beginning of July I decided to take a mid-year break from the 30 day challenge. July will be a short month.

What I really wanted to do was run/be active for July, but obviously that’s not happening. About 10 days ago I twisted my ankle while running. It became clear that the only people made for falling are toddlers. When mama falls, she falls hard. My chiropractor had a serious look of concern on her face after adjusting my back, neck, wrists, knees and ankles. She prescribed an extra appointment, which will be happening on Wednesday. Hopefully I’ll be back in action by the end of this week.

Another hindrance to my idea of a physical challenge is that the temperatures in Boise have reach inferno levels. This is the climate part of Idaho that I have yet to fall in love with. So July is going to be frivolous and fun and I’m still going to post daily. Yay for you! Since I liked making a list in June, everyday for the rest of July I’m going to do a Top 5 list. If you have an idea for a Top 5, drop me a comment here or on Facebook. Here’s the first:

TOP 5 SUPER POWERS I WISH I HAD
5. Super hearing
4. Speed reading, and I don’t mean the kind you can learn in a course.
3. Photographic memory
2. Super strength
1. Flight

Feeding Big Baby

Playing with the trains and the Boise Airport, probably picking up another disease.

We each got our own seats on the airplane!

Sleeping at Tutu and Grandad’s house.

My mom working her magical Tutu powers to put Porter down for a nap so I could go get a massage and hot tub at the Well Within. Ahhh.
At my parents house riding a mini tractor. It was love at first sight…with the tractor.

We went to the Sacramento Train Museum on the 4th of July and it was AWESOME!

“Mo big choo choos!” Almost a sentence.

Porter, train engineer.

Bam Bam

He’s asleep. Sigh.
