The Loves of My Life
I have more pictures of Blaine asleep than awake...but that is because he works so hard and falls asleep anytime he sits down for a minute. This year he surprised me with Valentine's WEEK...he gave me a present every day for the past week. It was so very sweet! Love you, Babe!
I love the light and sparkle in Bella's beautiful eyes. She is such a sweet girl and so much fun. She has got a great sense of style, don't you think? :) Even though the laundry situation drives me crazy, it is great to watch her use her imagination and play dress up. I love this age...she is so funny with the things she says and does. One of my favorite things that we do together is dance around the house to whatever music is on the radio. The girl has got some moves...
And my sweet, baby Ez...He's been cranky lately because he has a little cold and fever...cranky baby usually equates to cranky Mommy. But, this past month he has been so much fun...so smiley and such a flirt. He coos and goos and melts my heart every day. Yesterday he had a doctor's appt. and he weighed in at 9 pounds 7 ounces, which is actually pretty good for him. He has made serious improvement in eating, vomiting, and sleeping over the past month and he just lights up my world.
And, now a word on me...I have been Struggling (with a capital S) this past week or so with the whole weight loss thing. I have continued to exercise (although not as intensely) but the eating thing has just been a killer. Last night Blaine and I were watching the last hour of the Biggest Loser that I had recorded from the other night. I had watched the first hour in the morning while using the eliptical machine but when we sat down to unwind and finish the show off, I told Blaine that I really wanted a milk shake. "Can I do that? Can I eat a milk shake AND watch the Biggest Loser at the same time?" He said, "That's like reading the scriptures and smoking at the same time." Well, that made me laugh and boy did I enjoy that milk shake...
I guess I am feeling a little rebellious...it won't last forever and I'll be back on track shortly. Any suggestions on how you get back on when your weight loss efforts have been derailed?
