Big Sky 25

At Everett's one week check up, his pediatrician asked me if I was taking anything other than prenatal vitamins. I proudly announced that I wasn't... thinking that was a good thing. He then proceeded to tell me that I NEED to take Omega 3's because when you are nursing your body requires extra omega 3's. Apparently omega 3's are stored in our brains and so your baby is literally eating my brains away if I don't take extra supplements. So I got some and told Jake all about what the Dr. said. So now, whenever I say something that doesn't make since or forget something, Jake will ask me if I have forgotten to take my brain pills.

This morning Jake couldn't find the car keys. I asked him if he checked the front door.... (where he left them to dangle all night next to a busy road with our car in the driveway).

The other day Jake and I couldn't remember how old I was. Seems like both of us need extra Omega 3's!

So it was no surprise this morning when it took me a couple of minutes to figure out exactly how old my sister (Montana) was turning.


If I were her, I wouldn't have forgotten because she's got the smarts in the family. She is humble, giving, VERY OPINIONATED, stinking hilarious.... pretty much everything I'm not.

No one would have ever know we were sisters except for the fact that we showed up to school everyday in a red, oil-burning Ford Escort together.

She was tall, had long dark brown hair, lots of freckles, tanned easily, flat chested, never wore earrings or make up, got an A in Chemistry, never planned what she was going to wear....

I was the opposite of her 100% (except I took earth science because I knew I would fail chemistry).

She was awesome. I've had the best of times with her. No one can make me laugh like she can. She lives in Portland now. I haven't seen or talked to her in 2 years. But we are making a trip to see her within the next few weeks. It will be nice to catch up.

So until then, Happy 25th Birthday Montana!!!
