Late Night Ramblings

Lately I've been watching a lot of The Big Bang Theory. I like it.

I deep cleaned most of our bathroom tonight. Still to do? Shower/tub and inside of the toilet. I even cleaned the baseboards and behind the washer and dryer.

A few months ago I had a doctor's appointment and he asked me how my sleep was. I told him fine. I think I might need to tell him it's not fine.

Tyson's new meds have been really helping him to sleep. This is a big deal since he NEVER sleeps like a regular person. Maybe he stole my sleep and gave me his. Dang it.

William is hilarious. I took another picture of him tonight in a weird sleeping position. I'll have to add it in later and I'll post it on Facebook. He's totally my kid.

I'm freaking out about my grad program.

I'm freaking out about Tyson starting his LAST YEAR at BYU in chemical engineering. I can't wait for him to be done. It's a high-stress, ultra-competitive major so I look forward to Tyson's graduation day. I'll probably be more excited about his day than I was for mine.

I have recently come to the astonishing realization that some people who I thought were really great friends are actually rather poor friends. I don't know what to do with that info other than just think about it some more.

Compassion goes a LONG way in helping someone cope with a problem. Good friends help with that.

Good friends are also not who you always expect. I think God has a hand in that. I mentioned that last week was a sort of living nightmare for us and some people from church really reached out and made me feel loved. It meant a lot to me.

William is going to be two soon. My baby isn't a baby anymore. He's officially a toddler. Admittedly, he still doesn't say very many words and that makes me nervous for his doctor's appointment. He says LOTS of stuff but only a few almost words or phrases. His favorites are (in William-ese) "Please", "I did it!", and my personal favorite, "Uh-oh" complete with rounded lips and a hand at his mouth. I need to capture a picture of that. It's hilarious and adorable all at the same time.

I'm making cupcakes at 1:30am. I don't plan to eat any but I can't sleep and I don't want to clean anymore and I don't want to fold more laundry although I probably should.

My new favorite scripture for the time being: Doc. & Cov. 128: 22-23

Brethren, shall we not go on in so great a cause? Go forward and not backward. Courage, brethren; and on, on to the victory! Let your hearts rejoice, and be exceedingly glad. Let the earth break forth into singing. Let the dead speak forth anthems of eternal praise to the King Immanuel, who hath ordained, before the world was, that which would enable us to redeem them out of their prison; for the prisoners shall go free.
Let the mountains shout for joy, and all ye valleys cry aloud; and all ye seas and dry lands tell the wonders of your Eternal King! And ye rivers, and brooks, and rills, flow down with gladness. Let the woods and all the trees of the field praise the Lord; and ye solid rocks weep for joy! And let the sun, moon, and the morning stars sing together, and let all the sons of God shout for joy! And let the eternal creations declare his name forever and ever! And again I say, how glorious is the voice we hear from heaven, proclaiming in our ears, glory, and salvation, and honor, and immortality, and eternal life; kingdoms, principalities, and powers!

Anyways, I am getting tired. Time for bed. Good night.

It's okay that William isn't talking a lot yet! Is he communicating with you in other ways and making his wants/needs known (i.e. pointing at something on the counter that he wants)? Sometimes kids don't feel the need to say many words because their primary caregiver(s) understand what they need. You are a wonderful mom and I think that you are amazing! Love ya!
