Home Alone

Right now I am home alone. Do you know how long it has been since I've been home alone? Chris is off somewhere with one of his friends and Conner went to the Farm Show in KC with my parents. I don't really know if I like it or not, though. I've gotten a lot of things done, but am starting to miss the guys! Good thing it's not going to be any longer than one day or else I would go insane!

Okay, so my brother is going to India in a month on a K-State thing that he's be in for two years. They get to do all sorts of things through this program and I was looking at his itinerary the other day and it says "Meeting with Dalai Lama." Isn't that amazing?! He doesn't think it's that big of a deal, but I couldn't believe it!! THE Dalai Lama! Maybe I'm the only one impressed...oh well.

Soaking Up the Sun

Yesterday was a bea-u-tiful day...before all of the storms came and we had to take cover in the basement. So, Conner and I took full advantage and decided to do a little "golfing" in the yard (we're both learning and I hate to admit that I think he's going to be better than me.), swinging (as usual), and working in the garden. Here are some pictures of our fun afternoon.

(by the way, if you didn't know by now, conner had a little accident and has a black eye, so don't be alarmed. he had his first x-rays and is healing just fine. he's decided that he is going to be okay and i'm sure this is not going to be our last trip to the hospital. )

I don't want to be left out...

Okay, so I must be the most boring person on the internet. Is that a good thing or bad? It seems like EVERYONE is updating their blogs, facebooks, all that good stuff with pictures and stories. What do I have? Nothing. I can't even remember when I took a picture last...(maybe Christmas?). I used to be so good with Conner's pictures...I had a picture of everything...first bath, first bottle, first walking, first i got into the mud while mom wasn't looking. Now what do I have to show? Oh, well. Maybe I can blame it on the pregnancy?

Speaking of pregnancy, I am now 17 weeks along. Yea! I still have a long, long way to go, though. We get to find out next month if we're having a girl or boy. We are super excited and we're planning on taking Conner along for the sonogram. I know, I know, he won't even know what's going on, but I still want him to be there. Is that weird?

Conner's talking so much right now. We've been trying to teach him to play nice and say nice words and all that fun parenting stuff. So, the other day I was telling him not to do something (because he's two and gets into EVERYTHING). He turns around and looks me right in my eyes and says "Be nice, Momma." Think he's heard that somewhere once or twice?
