Today was a good day for my little family. Ava and I felt wind and sunshine on our faces, I opened my windows for the first time in almost a year, and I turned off the central air. I love the smell of crisp Georgia air throughout this house. This is the only time of year that I am a semi-fan of this state. I think we are going to start walking every night as a family (including Cooper). I'm not worried about Ava burning up in my moby wrap or the bugs attacking us while we walk. It's good exercise for the pooch too. Since having Ava it's no surprise that he's not the family baby anymore. I don't want a lazy dog though, I want Cooper to be fit and the same old hyper dog. Sometimes, his hyper-ness drives me nuts, but it's what makes Coop, Coop.

We have been contemplating adding another dog to the mix...scratch that, Justin has contemplated adding another dog to the mix. I'm appeasing him by not objecting to the idea right from the rip. I do want a big family, but I'd rather get through Ava's first year of life without worrying about mothering a new puppy. Cooper does play really well with other dogs, so if we do add another dog someday, I know they'll get along. 

The other day I wrote up this extremely LONG confessional post.. I decided I won't ever post it. It was nice to be able to laugh at myself and every time I read it, I do. I thought I'd share 5 raw truths about my life.

  1. I love the smell of Ava's milk breath. Yes, it's odd! Whenever I give her a kiss, I give her breath a sniff
  2. I kind of have a fetish with picking at Justin. He hates it, but it's seriously therapeutic for me. Plucking his brows, popping his pimples, you name it, I'm picking at it
  3. I sing in the shower AND I occasionally dance. All my moves are original, and sometimes I find myself face down in the tub
  4. When I get nervous or anxious, I eat lemons. I don't know why this is, but I just do it. I even pour little particles of diabetes (salt) on my lemons. Somehow, I feel not so nervous after a good, sour lemon
  5. I'm a very judgmental person, more so when it comes to pregnancy. I am trying to be better at not judging people, because I know I am imperfect. It's a work in progress. 
I hope you enjoyed reading some of my truths. I think I might make this a regular thing. I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday evening! The weekend is in sight, make the rest of the week fabulous!
