i've got lotsa bloggin to do....

ok first of all i wanted to say that i tried out the baking soda apple cider vinegar thing... for my hair... and i loved it the first time... i'm going to try it for a couple weeks and see how it goes. my hair is super soft and dried actually pretty nice on its own, which i never really let it do... and it doesn't smell like anything to me, seth says he can barely smell the acv if he puts his nose in my hair... so there's that. but he likes the way it smells.... anyway we'll see, i will keep an update going.

secondly maybe i'm just a proud parent but arabella has become kind of obsessed with coloring and knowing what color everything is and i think she's kind of a genius. ok maybe not a genius, but definitely a creative mind like her papa... most the kids, well all the kids i've been around... which isnt a ton, but i did do a little bit of daycare at the gym where they colored everyday... anyway most the kids i've been around usually just choose a couple colors to color with or one and color not really balanced if they choose more than one color... but arabella HAS to use EVERY color, every time she colors.... and she names every one when she takes them out, and she has to have her hands washed in the middle of coloring and she has to put the lid back on every time she's done with a marker. now i thought it was creative that she always uses each color and pretty evenly (like its not tons of one color over the rest) but the other day when i was in bed she made this picture and seth was sooo proud of how she made the little circle on the end in the middle with most the colors and then she specifically took the red and made two little circles on either side of that one, then she used the purple on both of those but not the middle one... shes obviously thinking a lot about what colors to use and how exactly she wants to use them... and all her pictures turn out so pretty cause they're soooo colorful... anyway here's the picture...



and then today we were at my midwife's house and right after mary measured me ara grabbed the measuring tape and came over to me like she knew exactly what she was doing and measured me.... she's so crazy into everything mary does at my appointments. we're gonna need to get her a fetal scope and measuring tape of her own.
