last night we ordered pizza for the first time since being married. three years, no pizza! what! i would just like it to be known that i am now a minor celebrity at the domino's down the street for my extra mushroom, extra pineapple, olive + pepperoni creation. savory + sweet. mmmmmm. it was just one of those things that had to happen. also i tried a double del cheeseburger for the first time ever? maybe this explains why i am home sick today, unable to move? gross.

also! did you know! i am over the half way point! i am 20 weeks + then some as of yesterday. we went to the doctor for a little checkup + ultrasound + everything is looking...alien-ish? skeletal? mildly creepy? but good! so far, every time we have an ultrasound, the baby has his hands up against the wall of my stomach. everyone gets a kick out of it besides me. is he trying to claw his way out?!!!!! what is happening?!!!!! but seriously, so far, so good. thank heavens.

and milo? he's mostly potty trained + completely spoiled. jeff asked me today, in all seriousness, 'what if i don't love our child like i love milo?' ha! i'm actually concerned that we will love the child more. like, how is that possible? we send pictures back + forth all day + i don't think we have had a real conversation about anything since we brought him home. oops.

anyways! it is my birthday tomorrow! it's my last day as a 22 year old + so far i've spent a lot of time in my robe. c'est la vie!

this week my family was here from idaho, washington + california to celebrate thanksgiving in utah with all my cousins. it was a lot of fun + a lot of people + a l o t of food + now my body is like, GOODBYE + i haven't moved off my couch / stopped sneezing since. woof.

also did i mention we got a puppy?
i know. i know.

we have been talking about getting a dog forever + especially wanted one before i got pregnant. but then that happened + time passed + we were like, welp. no dog. anyways, my sister mckenzie wanted to go look at puppies for fun + i'm sure you know how the story goes? i looked at him. he looked at me. i couldn't leave. i had to get him.

so world, meet milo cyrus stapleton + i looooooove him + his cow spots. 

he is a beagle-heeler...collie? maybe? the verdict is out on that one. he is super cute + mostly getting the hang of potty training + kennel training. except for yesterday when we went to costco + he sat on my lap + actually peed into my pocket. my phone is currently soaking in a bag of rice. oddly enough, i felt bad for him? how does that figure? is this a prequel to parenthood?
(this reminds me of the time i backed my mom's car into another car + declared I AM THE WORST DRIVER EVER!!!!! + somehow she felt bad for me for feeling so bad? parenthood. what.)

but, yeah. he's cute. we love him.
...except for that whole phone thing...update : still not working.
