I am defeated.

All this time I've been taught about Darwinism and survival of the fittest. If it's true, why are there so many stupid people on this planet? And why are they allowed to reproduce? Enlighten me please!



I feel like the worst blogger ever. If you don't know, I've started a daily photo blog so that you aren't completely out of the loop from my lack of blogging. You can see daily pics of the boy if you're interested at www.elysiaandthejamess.posterous.com. It's blogging I can do from my phone which just makes life easy, right?!

So, an update on us. James will be 3 months old this coming Thursday. I can't believe it. He's changed so much in such a short period of time, and it feels like he's always been with us. It's SO AMAZING. He has such a funny personality and it's starting to shine. He is holding full on conversations with me on a daily basis... what can I say, I have the smartest child alive. Of course our conversation is of me talking to him in annoying baby talk and him making cooing and coughing noises back at me, but it's adorable none the less. I recorded it today, but apparently I can't upload the file. Sad! It's probably a good thing though, I don't need to embarass myself by letting you hear my annoying babytalk voice. :)

But, as far as Mommyland goes, he's so amazingly and totally adorable and incredible. That is probably the worst sentence ever, but it's so true. I was meant to be his Mom. He's perfect.

I've been back at work since the end of August and am only working part time. I'm working out 3-4 days a week in an effort to find my pre-baby body somewhere. So far, it's hiding, but I will find it. :) I walked the Susan G. Komen Phoenix Race for the Cure 5K with some of my awesome ladies from work and it was a lot of fun. I'm going to try and build up my stamina to be able to finish the 13 mile Rock N Roll 1/2 Marathon in January. Not committing yet, but I'm considering.

But anyway, Jimmy and I are planning our birthday party in the NEW HOUSE for Saturday the 24th. It should be fun, and I suppose I should mention we are all moved in to our amazing new house. So-- life is good. Best baby ever, new house, and a fresh start to another year. I can't believe I'm almost 25... phew. It's been a LONG year, but I'm loving where we've ended up.
