Laila & Sydney #3




Laila came over last night and got to hang out with us while Trav moved the rest of the stuff into their new house...which is fun because they will be right around the corner pretty much! She is quite the hoss these days...and will be scooting herself all over the place real soon! Sydney is Army Crawling ALL OVER the place and does really well with her balance while sitting.

FINALLY!!!


The little Monkey figured out that she could hold that bottle on her own! Every time she would eat...she would grab the bottle, shove it in her mouth and immediately throw her arms out to the side hoping that we would know to catch it since she didn't want to hold it...but today, today she finally picked up on the fact that her arms are made to come forward and she can grab on to that bottle herself!!! This was the second bottle of the day...and little did she know I mixed in the rest of the veggies she wouldn't eat at lunch! She has become pretty picky with her food lately...she loves and devours her fruit and cereal every morning, but lunch and dinner is a fight...I am pretty sure she has our sweet-tooth...so I figured there was no point in wasting the rest of it today and she needs the nutrients...so Squash-Bottle it was...and she sucked the entire thing down!!!

Reading with Dad...


Matt was reading to Sydney last night...in between trying to EAT the book, she would look up at me whenever I pointed the camera her way and flash this giant GRIN!!!

Sister Sue Designs GIVEAWAY!!!


SO...I have mentioned this site before, and I will mention it more in the future I am sure, but I will do anything to keep her in the limelight, because I think her handmade baby items are FABULOUS! I received several as gifts during my pregnancy, gave several more to friends during theirs and I have been lucky enough to take some of the photography of her products. My friend Jen who owns Sister Sue Designs is being featured tonight through the ESTYKIDS "HOLIDAY TRUNK SHOW" at 8pm. This is a wonderful opportunity for her to continue to share what she does and I am excited to help her by passing the word along.

AND ... she is giving away one of these awesome Diaper Totes!!!

You can visit her BLOG for official information and don't forget to visit ESTY.com tonight and for any of your Handmade Gift needs! SHOP HANDMADE THIS HOLIDAY!!!

Incentive...you'd think so!


Okay...so we have been down this road MANY MANY times before...but once again I am throwing it out there. I have EIGHT WEEKS...only eight weeks until my brother's wedding in Hawaii...AND that means I have to get my BUTT in gear! I have lost 3.5 pounds since we spoke last...nothing compared to what I could have lost by now...but no reason to continue to dwell...I just have to get back up and keep going. For some reason I have the ability to put 110% into everything else but MYSELF! What is wrong with this picture! So...we signed up for the COMMUNITY CENTER which is just around the corner from our house...and now it is GAME ON! I have 8 weeks to lose a minimum of 10 lbs which will put me at my pre-prego weight. If I am lucky I may just lose a few more than that. My DECEMBER GOAL is to hit the Gym everyday! I went last night and managed to get my butt out of bed at 5am this morning to be there when the doors opened at 5:30 so I could get it in before Matt went to work. So anyway...the Holidays aren't the easiest of times to try LOSING weight...but I am back on the wagon again and hope to finally start focusing on MYSELF for a change.

Where did the tolerance go???






So...we went to the KU / MU Game yesterday at Arrowhead! It was cold and the first day in KC to really start snowing! I managed to get through the first half of the game before the numerous bloody m
ary's I had with breakfast decided they didn't like me anymore! You think your tolerance comes back after 9 months on sabattical, and seeing as Sydney is 6.5 months old now...but not so much! So...my apologies to my fellow guests and those I drunk dialed from my seat! I know Matt and I missed the second half of what I hear was a great game...he listened to it from the car...but I guess we are finally even for the John Mayer concert he celebrated passed out in the lawn at Sandstone for my Birthday last summer! - By the way, Spence thanks for that water at Halftime...although I think I lost it in the bathroom right before my glove fell in the toilet! Rock Chalk JAYHAWKS - KU still rules!
