10 Months and Random Thoughts


when do you start being "from" somewhere?

i was born in california and moved to texas when i was in 6th grade. when i lived in tx i always said i was from ca, especially in high school. i thought it was cool.

then i moved up to utah after high school, and i always (the last 5 years!) say i'm from tx. and i think this is super cool.

now we're in el paso for the summer, and people ask me "where are you from".

i'm so confused! i still think in from tx, but i came down here from ut and am going back up to ut. i'm really hanging on to being from tx, but i think i might not be anymore! *tear*


on to the baby...

she's growing so big!

i wish i knew her height and weight stats to post, but i don't have a tape measure or a scale here. all i know is she is getting harder to carry, and she wants to be carried all the time.

she is also walking!!! she can go all the way across the living room!





she's still a bit wobbly, and sticks to crawling most of the time, but she practices every day.
she's so funny when she bends down to pick up her toys or her lime (new favorite "toy") and then walks around trying to balance with the new weight.
