Casper the Ghost called.. he wants his coloring back

So due to me being preggers this last summer, I didn't get out in the sun much...or at all. I think I went swimming three times total. Very sad.
I'm one of those people who can get tan- I don't burn too easily like some of my redheaded friends. I just chose to stay indoors this past season and it's finally gotten a little out of hand.

yes I know, self-portrait (a few weeks before having harrison)

But wow. And it's not even just my makeup being a little too pale or anything.

I mean, I know it's good to wear sunscreen but sheesh. I'm thinking I need a little sun this summer. Good thing we have plenty of it here in AZ.

Here's the babe. Still no eyes-open photo but that's only because I got about 4 hours of sleep last night thanks to Mr. Nurseallnightandgothroughahugegrowthspurtplusbealittlefussy.

I'm only beginning to comprehend how hard motherhood is. I'm always stressed and calling my mom or sisters to ask "is this normal?" or "what do I do?" or "help!". I love it so much but I'm also incredibly out of my element at times.

I just need lots of practice. Thankfully, I get to be a stay at home mom now! yay :)

A note about the hubby:

Here he is with his other love... I mean XBOX. Notice anything?

He got his hair cut! {FINALLY}
Seriously, this man will need a hair cut, say that he wants and needs one and yet will not get one for the simple reason that he knows that it bugs me. He also will specifically NOT get his hair cut if I ask him to, just because I asked him to.
I tell him how great he looks, how it's slimming on him and how nice it is. But ohhhh no, he'd rather taunt me by leaving it so long that it can be put into a pony tail.


Well, hopefully he won't read how happy I am that he got his hair cut because that will only make it longer until he gets another one.

As for baby's room, I forgot that I already posted what was done thus far. So, until things calm down a little more, I'm not going to post any more pictures of the room.

{My birthday is tomorrow! Wear your green and don't get pinched!}

I'm the same way right now. I miss being tan in Arizona!!! If you try to go outside to tan here you'll get frostbite. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
