I got in trouble with my Mom last week because she found out 3 weeks late that Roxy was crawling. I could have sworn that I told her, but then again I might not have. Ever since I had Roxy, I forget things a lot more than I used to. I'm going insane! And that's only with 1 child. I can't imagine what it will be like with more.
Anyway, so here's a catch up of all the things Roxy's been doing lately. Obviously she crawls. She can also pull herself up anything, the couch, the crib, the wall, whatever. And she just started cruising last week, which is walking along the couch while holding herself up. She now has two little bottom teeth. I think they both came in at the same time.They are so cute. She likes to watch "Between the Lions" that's on right before Sesame Street. I don't know what it is, but those lions just crack her up. This week she tried green beans for the first time and just snarfed them. She'll eat anything. No wonder she's a chunk. We just love all her little rolls. They're adorable. As of wednesday, she is 8 months old and is as cute as ever. I still love being a Mom and Matt loves being a Dad. Life's pretty good.

I went to Logan on Saturday for my friend Eliza's baby shower. She is having a little boy and naming him Jack. It was so fun to see her again and all my friends from my years in college. I also got to go to a Utah State softball game and saw a bunch of my old teammates. It's so fun to see your old friends again and reminisce about all the good times you had and catch up with each other.
Here are some pictures from the shower which was so fun...

That's me measuring Eliza's belly with a string. I totally guessed the closest to her actual size! Yay!
Brianne and Roxy
Roxy bein' cute!
Me, Chuck, and Josh playing another game that I totally lost!

Saturday was a lot of fun. It made me miss those fun college years of having roommates and playing softball. And I do miss Logan a little, but am also glad to be where I am. I'm sure some day I'll look back and wish I was back where I am now.

Last night ended the NCAA Basketball Tournament. Funny that March Madness ends in April??? Anyway, Matt's family has a little March Madness competition every year for bragging rights. Last year I was crowned the winner and was looking to go back to back this year. Saturday night was a sad night for me when both my picks got slaughtered!! Who knew that my proposed Champion North Carolina and UCLA would both fail to make it to the Championship game? I ended up losing to my father-in-law (who happened to be the score keeper...hmmmmm figures) and taking 2nd place (which I just like to call the 1st Loser). I guess 2nd isn't that bad when you consider that I beat like 10 people. But I have been officially dethroned. So sad. I guess I'll just have to wait for next year.
On the subject of sports, I'd like to just tell you all that Matt has finally decided to be a real St. Louis Cardinals fan. Being from Wisconsin, he has grown up as a Brewers fan. Blah! He had always told me he liked the Cardinals, but I finally told him he had to choose. If we were watching the Cardinals play the Brewers with his family, who would he root for?? He finally came to his senses and chose the Cardinals. I bought him his first St. Louis hat to celebrate. Now I just need to work on making him a "true" Cardinals fan. This would entail him wanting the Brewers to lose even when they're not playing the Cardinals. Hello, they are both in the same division, so you should not want to see the other win. That's like being a Yankee fan and still rooting for the Red Socks. Or like being a Packer fan and still wanting to see the Bears or the Vikings win. Who does that? Not true fans. Not the ones who are in it through the winning and losing seasons. Even when they trade one of your favorite players. (I'll miss ya Eckstein!) True Fans always want to see their team win and all their rivals lose.
I, on the other hand am now a true Packer fan by marriage. It was easy for me to adopt my husbands team, Green Bay, since I had no previous attachment to any other football team. When I was younger I was a 49ers fan during the whole Steve Young, Jerry Rice Era. But that faded quickly. I guess it may be a little harder to abandon a team you have watched and loved your whole life, but I think Matt finally decided that my love for the Cardinals outweighed his for the Brewers. Plus, he was always more into the Packers than he was into the Brewers. Besides, football is his sport, and baseball mine, so I think it only fair that he decide "our" football team and I decide "our" baseball team. Those are just my personal thoughts, you don't have to agree.
As for basketball, with no real draw toward any team from either of us, we have resorted to be Jazz fans by location. I was once a Trailblazer fan being from Portland and all, but when we moved to Utah, I switched to being a Jazz fan and just loved Stockton, Malone, Hornacek, Russell, and the whole gang, but again that faded. But for now we are Jazz fans until otherwise persuaded.
As for college sports, I have come to be somewhat of a Texas fan by friendship, but I will always be a "true" Utah State fan, Go Aggies!
Sorry for the novel, but you know me, I can talk sports.
