happy thoughts

I have a confession, and I'm not proud of it. I am so quick to focus on the bad. Its a curse and it bothers me a lot. I always say I am going to stop and so I just keep my mouth shut when a negative thought enters my brain, but that just doesn't cut it. I need to change my way of thinking. I want to be more positive! Even when someone is rude towards me. I want to see the good in everyone and everything. So for the past 24 hours I have purposely focused on the good and positive things around me. It was hard, especially when a lovely bladder infection decided to make itself known. But the world is such a prettier and more enjoyable place when we look for the good instead of focusing on the bad. In a world full of evil, hate, and petty girls, we have to focus on the good things around us. It's how we survive. One of my goals for 2013 is to every night, list 5 good or positive things about the day. I wont blog them all, but i'll share my list from tonight:
1. The weather was wonderful today.
2. Elsie is the cutest little punkin ever! She has started cooing and smiling alll the time. That in itself makes this world a better place.
3. Chase has an interview. Guys, we may be moving. But i'll let ya know more about that when it gets official.
4. One week till Christmas. boo-ya!
5. By may 2013 our little group of friends will collectively have 4 little girls. That my pretties, is awesome.

10 Things: Elsie edition

1. Naked babies are the best babies.
2. Breast feeding is no longer a chore. Oh how I wanted to quit in the first few weeks. But sticking it out has already proved worth it.
3. Elsie smiles and laughs when I get her from her crib in the night. Her toothless grin makes those middle of the night feedings oh so worth it.
4. I used to think blow-outs were a result of negligent moms not changing their babes diaper often enough. I now know that a diaper can go from clean to completely full and all over the place in less than one second.
5. When I hear Chase bust up laughing in the other room. I ask him what happened and he says "she peed all over everything!" Nothing phases him! He loves that little girl. And woah, I love him.
6. Showers are a necessary and wonderful thing. Thank you Chase for making sure I still some "me time". I never knew how much I would need it.
7. Its kind of ridiculous how often Chase and I refer to ourselves in the third person as "mama and daddy", but seriously its our new favorite role.
8. Its amazing how little sleep you actually need to survive.
9. Newborn diapers are officially too small. STOP GROWING!
10. We can lay down on the couch at 5 o'clock, talk/play/cuddle with Elsie for a few minutes and suddenly its 9pm. Time really does fly when you're having fun.

Lovely Weather = Park Day

The weather today was fabulous! And because that doesn't happen all too often, we headed down to our neighborhood park to enjoy the soft winter grass and fresh air. 
If Arizona promises to keep bringing us days like today, she may just become the best state ever.
Cross your fingers!
