I feel like I'm losing some of my blogging mojo. Whatever that means. Here's what we're up to:
Millie: She tried french toast the other day!! Progress. She's still a stinker when it comes to eating. I'm trying to just accept it and let her be a baby and continue eating baby food if she really wants to! Millie has quite an attitude these days. She'll have full on, lay-on-the-ground-and-kick-and-scream tantrums and I'm learning how to deal with that. I'm surely not the best at it, but we're learning together. She is climbing everything these days and it's not uncommon to find her on top of the coffee table or kitchen table! Millie gives me a few heart attacks a day. Along with all her toddler challenges, she is so sweet. She tries to copy what we say and she asks for two naps a day when she's tired. She still loves being outside, and I'm sure she would prefer to have a mom who just sits on the bench and reads at the park instead of a hovering helicopter mom, which is what I am. At least until she's a little older. Millie is afraid of anything that makes a loud noise, which means she runs to me and lays her head on my shoulder until it stops. I'll take my snuggles however I can get 'em!
Tyler: He's just a rockstar. It's amazing, all that he does. I feel really lucky to be the woman by his side. Work is still pretty busy for him, but after this week it should really slow down and he'll have normal hours. I feel like I'm always saying that, but really- this time it's true! We're looking forward to some days off with him this summer. Tyler's birthday is coming up, which I think I'm more excited about than he is! He is a great dad to Millie and the best husband I've ever had. (Ha!)
Me: Life is pretty busy these days. Our ward has a big Young Women camp fundraiser coming up, and there's been a lot of time spent preparing and planning for that. I'm still running 3x/week with two women in the ward, and that's been great! It's amazing how much fun I have getting up that early in the morning and running, both of which are normally pretty hard for me. I had a goal this month to finish 2 books, and it's going to be tough! Other things always seem to get in the way of reading. I'm still having fun with the etsy shop- definitely learning some things, especially about what not to do.
Life is good! And now, some pictures.

|Crepe night=success! But only because they were chocolate crepes, of course|
|She tries to put on every pair of pants she comes across|
|Millie and I had a rough night on the couch- Tyler tossed and turned about it, from the looks of the bed the next morning!|
