I’m Thirsty!

I find myself with plenty of time to blog these days. I nurse Ember and edit and upload pictures and type one handed. Most of my pictures are uploaded at 4am… that’s Ember’s favorite time to get up and eat and stay up for a couple hours. 4am is party time in this house!

But when I’m blogging I get SO thirsty! And I can’t very well get up and get water whenever I want.

You know what my doctor told me I could start doing now??

I have about 15 pounds to lose. I started light with just a pilates DVD today. And then I took before pictures!

The kids were outside playing and Brooklyn, camera lover that she is, ran to join me.

The youngest and oldest with mommy!

I sure was glad the children joined me because I feel majorly stupid standing in front of a camera on a tripod and trying to look natural!

I’ve been missing Allan lately. Ember is pretty cranky from 6-9 which is when we used to get to be together the most. And at 9pm I’m sadly exhausted and tend to fall asleep, even if he is talking to me!

Yesterday Ember wasn’t happy with this one poop she needed to do so she nursed pretty strongly for a while. I’d say she even overate…

But she’s actually been more calm lately. She still wants to be held all day and night but she’s not too fussy as long as she’s in my arms. She used to fuss and cry a LOT even while being held.



She smiles a lot now. The early mornings when it’s just me and her are the best. She stares at me and smiles from ear to ear and attempts to coo. It’s the best part of the day!


I’m so glad that the protection we were using last January failed. I love this baby girl and can’t believe we weren’t trying for her! We just didn’t know what was missing πŸ™‚

Payson. Payson, Payson. Oh boy what can I say besides he is a very typical two year old. Terrible twos, oh yeah.
Constantly getting into trouble, always whiny and crying and demanding. He’s letting me know he doesn’t like me spending all this time with the baby!

And the older girls are as silly as ever.

And now I need to go teach a certain 7 year old some addition stuffs. So…

  • This post was so sweet! That Ember is just so stinkin adorable…I could eat her with a spoon πŸ™‚ Oh, by the way, I have a batch of your chocolate chip cookies in the oven right now. I'm a bit obsessed πŸ˜‰

  • I want your before picture! Dang girl you look sooo beautiful. I MADE Milo come over here to check you out! That little & newest girl in the family is soooo adorable too!

  • Wow you look really great! What else do you plan to use for your workouts? Im needing to lose 10 more lbs. ( I lost it over the summer, and somehow found it again. ) and did pretty well with Zumba and Jillian Michaels 30 Day shred. Im thinking I need to get back to Zumba. Havent tried Pilates though..

  • I wish I looked as good as you do so soon after having a baby! 2 years down the line since my last baby and I still have plenty to lose!

    My little boy is 2 years old too and he whines a lot. I always thought my daughter would be the whiney one as people always said girls are whiney but she is the tough independent one out of the two.

    Your kids are so cute!

  • I hate you! You look fan-freakin-tastic! My baby is about to be 7 months and I think I am bigger than before I had her! I am about 30lbs away from my goal weight. πŸ™ But you look incredible.
