It's been quite a while since I last posted. Life I tell ya...it's cray - cray!! And since I've been MIA for so long I thought a random update/thoughts post would be good. So here we go...
~ first and foremost, Camden is amazing. Seriously - I LOVE 2!! Sure I could do without the meltdowns but ya know, I was prepared for them. So most days I feel like we have a good handle on those. But in any case, the kid is awesome. He is so incredibly smart...and funny, like really, really funny. He's currently a horrible eater, especially at dinner. It's like at dinner he's just over with eating for the day and wants nothing to do with food anymore. We used to push him but now we're just like whatever. If he eats great - if not we don't stress over it.
He is really into Daniel Tiger and Paw Patrol. He loves his play kitchen (his specialty is chicken nugget soup LOL) His other favorite toys include this farm, Paw Patrol mashems, Superhero Mr Potato Head, and his B. Young brand bus (I can't find it online anywhere. I know my mother in law bought it for him from Target when it was on clearance last year.) He loves to take showers with either myself or Matt. He was doing really good at potty training but he has sort of regressed. When we're home sometimes he'll want to sit on the potty and other times he has not interest. Since he's so young yet we aren't pushing it but do encourage him to use the potty as often as possible. He is also our early riser - usually around 6/6:15. On average he naps for 2 hours every day. He legitimately talks NON-STOP, says the funniest things, and LOVES to sing and dance! He's pretty darn perfect if you ask me <3
~ My work is CRAZY! Not only is it our busiest time of year but we are down quite a few positions. The other Accounting Manager just up and left - no notice...nothing!! So it's been nuts here. The days are long, and stressful, and basically I just feel like I spend my days putting out fires - while also trying to do my actual day-to-day responsibilities. Due to all these changes I was offered a promotion as Director of Finance. Awesome - right? Yes, of course. BUT......I turned it down. The money would have been great - but I'm not at the point of my life where I want all that pressure and even more stress and responsibility. Right now Camden is my life & him and Matt are my priority and where I want to put my time and energy into - NOT work. It wasn't an easy decision at all for me but in the end I know I made the right choice for where my family is and what I want out of life. My little family comes first - no matter what.
~ My workouts have only been so-so lately. On average I work out 4 times a week, which I don't love (I'd much prefer that number to be 5 times a week but it is what it is right now.) I haven't been running because of some knee pain. That has me really bummed out, not gonna lie. I have, however, been taking a Barre/Pilates class on Sunday and am LOVING it!!! The barre portion of the class is out of my comfort zone but let me tell ya - it's no joke. It's hard!! I work up quite a sweat in that class and love how I feel afterwards.
~ This past Saturday Matt competed in a team CrossFit competition out in Utica. His team did GREAT and I'm glad he had the opportunity to do this. And I, of course, loved the one on one time I had with Camden. We spent Saturday visiting with family and friends and it was just a nice day (busy but nice!)
~ I can't really think of much else. I'm sure there is SO much more but honestly I can't even think straight (and it's only 8:15 in the morning!) So with that - Happy Hump Day!!
