hello from the holbrook house! natalie reporting!
not much over here. the days are finally starting to blur together again into a steady rhythm and for that i am grateful. january was such a jerk. january you have been demoted!
brandon works and comes home, huck is all big boy with a heart of gold, and i've been loving spending my days with him. he makes a real fun side kick, not to mention a good sugar snack when you need a quick hit.
i've slowly been making my way through on the road. i picked it up at the airport in salt lake after the new year and it has taken me forever to get through, just because i keep rereading whole paragraphs over and over and then kind of sitting in them in a very nerdy way. i keep getting caught up in the words of the thing. those worrrrds! they keep rolling around in my head, they're such perfect words.
the other day while i was putting away the laundry, huck waltzed into the bedroom and reclined against the bed with his arms behind his head. he sort of crossed and uncrossed his legs while i replaced messy stacks of clothes with neat stacks of clothes, and then he stood up and very loudly requested some chocolate milk. he's at this stage where the minute he wants something it is CODE RED. he asks for things the way you might ask for things the on fifth or sixth time you've ask for things. THIS IS URGENT. COME ON MOM. which i find kind of funny. i've started answering with my arms in the air, OKAYYYYY! which makes him giggle. oh, two.
