Is anybody else so over January? I mean, I love the snow, but by now, the holidays are over, the snowmen have been built, the fudge has been eaten, and I just wanna freaking skip around in flowers and see some gosh dang sunlight. Is that too much to ask?

We have spent a lot of snuggly days at home..., because we don't get out... we are down to one car these days and since hitch-hiking in Utah County is a little creepy, Carter and I are stranded until the truck is fixed. Not too bad, considering how cute and happy this little chubbers is.
In this free time I have decided to do many free things. Number one, I am being shredded by Jillian Michaels. It has been such an accomplishment to step on the scale and see the very slowly falling numbers, but at least they're falling. At least I am fitting into my jeans... although it's frustrating when after I work out, dripping from sweat, the husband says, while eating his Oreos, 'Oh, I decided to cough and lost 86 pounds.'
On those days, I make cakes. Yeah, I have decided to one-up Betty Crocker. She wishes she were me. Check out this baby; I should go into friggin business!
Yeah, so I guess cakes, or Betty Crocker-ing is not my thing. I really am trying to learn to be domestic after so many years working out of the home.... but I guess I have to take my baby steps.
Speaking of baby steps... and babies... I know, I know, I am SUCH a mom with a mom haircut, but I can never get over how blessed I am to have baby awesome. Baby awesome is three months this week! He sure lives up to his name. Not only has he been sleeping through the night for several weeks, but it is usually 9-10 hours at a time. He is nothing but giggles and talking these days, and he even wakes up from his little naps just playing and talking to his crib. He has already rolled over and is such a little river-dancer.
I can't get over this little miracle and what an angel he is to us. What a mellow, happy, but freaking fat and adorable guy! I know for sure he will change his angel ways the minute he starts being mobile, so I better enjoy these snuggly days while they last. All the old people are right again, it really goes by too fast.

Oh yeah, and he is sporting a pretty wicked awesome mullet. Business in the front, par-tay in the back.
Also, he has back fat. But he's bringing sexy back.

He's so cute! And I like the blue frosting thing... :)

first off, his hair is too funny. He is so CUTE EV! I am happy he is a good sleeper, when babies don't sleep it can be so exhausting. Three months is such a great age. They are so happy and really starting to develop a personality. I also love the cake, don't be so hard on yourself, I am sure you have mad baking skills.....not to mention beauty, vocal skills, kindness skills, awesomeness skills...I could go on and on

Catherine said...

I love that you post your attempts at making cakes! I think it looks great, except the icing looks like it melted. And you do have an awesome baby, I wish I'd gotten to see him!

How in the name of all that's holy did you get him to sleep through the night?? Nothing it just happened? Babywise? Voodoo? My child refuses to do it. Otherwise he's beautiful! And congrats on the baby fat loss. It's a beautiful thing.

I love the color of the frosting on your cake. See, you're a better chef than you thought. :)

I showed my mom that pic I took of baby awesome, and I also showed her your blog, and she got all teary-eyed and smiley. She kept saying, "Oh, what a miracle!"
I think you need to bring him up to my moms. She loves him!
I do too!!

The cake is spectacular! I think it might have still been warm when frosted, but I bet it was YUMMY! Cute kid too!
