Random thoughts for my 100th post!

Things sure have changed alot at the Lyon household since little miss was born in January. Clark and I can't remember what life was like without Rose and we love our new role as parents. The biggest change for me has been the busy busy schedule. I wouldn't consider myself lazy, but I really do love "lounging" around the house. Or should I say, I loved lounging. Those days are looooong gone! Just today, I have fed the baby, fed myself, made coffee, unloaded the dishwasher, washed, folded, and put away 2 loads of laundry, washed and changed our sheets, vacuumed the floors, cleaned the bathroom, paid bills, and caught up with a friend on the phone...all by 11 AM!!! Motherhood has helped me prioritize and become much more efficient than I used to be. When you have an hour or two of quiet time (baby sleeping) its like a mad dash to get as many chores accomplished as possible.

Am I weird that my new idea of relaxing = folding laundry???

Hey Jill!

I've had the best time looking at all the pics of Rose tonight. She is adorable and looks so much like you! I am jealous that she can hold her own sippy cup and is sitting up. What a smart girl! Virginia and Jane are just going to love her.
