I Want My Brain Back

I was at the library Saturday and thought of a book I wanted to read but could not come up with the title. A call to Joseph for help sounded something like this:

"What's the name of that book that's written by that one guy? It's a classic, long, you've read it. They even made it into a movie starring what's his name. You know, the one I really like?"

I was dumbfounded when he couldn't figure out what I was describing. I finally came up with The Count of Monte Cristo on my own, but it took a looooong time.

Ever since having children I can't seem to remember anything. I used to have my whole week's schedule in my head and never missed a thing. Now if it's not on the calendar I'm toast. Simple words completely elude me all the time. At this rate I'm going to be 40 and not be able to remember my kid's names.

Joseph recently read a book that mentioned that during pregnancy certain parts of a woman's brain shrink considerably so that memory loss is a real thing. It said those areas aren't back to their normal size until your baby is 6 months old, either. So I've got a legitimate excuse for losing my mind, but I don't think mine ever comes back. With each child I lose more and more of it as it's slowly sucked through the umbilical cord and out with each nursing. So I guess what I'm trying to say is that if my children are smart one day you'll all know why. ;)

2 Months Old

William is 2 months old today, so in honor of this milestone I will post some pictures of him from the past month.

I love this little bear suit. I've used it with all 3 kids and I think they all look so cute and snuggly in it.

My Mom gave William his first BYU shirt, a jersey. I think it brings out his muscles and makes him look like a linebacker already. (hahaha)

I had to bribe the girls to sit for these Big Sister/Little Brother pictures, but obviously my milk bribe didn't work on William. He still grimaced. He obviously knew he would get milk either way. Smarty pants.

This was the best shot I got. Oh well.

My friend gave me this shirt that says "I'm Happier Naked!" It's so fitting for William. He really does love to lounge around in nothing but his birthday suit. Sophie especially thinks the shirt is funny.

William's complexion was beautiful until the week before his blessing, just like I knew it would be. Happens every time. Darn baby zits destroying the sweet blessing pictures. He was still pretty cute, though. He's a sweet boy and we all sure love him.

Blessing Day

We blessed William at church on December 26th, 2010.
I love that I caught a smile! He's doing this so much lately and it's my favorite!

His daddy gave him a very sweet blessing as he was surrounded by his grandfathers and uncles.

I love my boy!

I'm so blessed to have these men in my life.

William's sisters sure love him.

4 generations: Papa Lamb, Grandpa Lamb, Mom, and Will

3 generations: Grandpa Jensen, Dad, and Will. All these men have William in their names. Grandpa's first name is William and Dad's middle name is William.
