It's been another 4 weeks since I have written. Life has been mega consuming between work and our 3 kids. Most days feel like a fight just to keep your head on straight. As usual here is a quick run down of what we have been up to!
~Aaron hit the 6 month mark and we began feeding him solid foods. We attempted at 4 and 5 months to start him on rice cereal but he wanted nothing to do with it. So we gave it another try-this time with banana flavored baby oatmeal and he loved it! We're also working our way through veggies. So far he has had (and liked) sweet potatoes, green beans, carrots, and squash. Tomorrow is the dreaded peas...I'll let you know how that goes!
~"Baby" Angel turned 5..yes thats right our oldest son who we still call Baby Angel is now 5 :( We had a family gathering at Chuck E. Cheese (pics to follow) during the week followed by his birthday party for all of our family and friends the following weekend.
~I have been taken hostage by a nast sickness that has landed me in bed/on the couch for the past 3 days straight! Now any moms of small children know how hard it is to take even 5 minutes for yourself let alone 3 days. Thankfully my husband has stepped up to the plate more than I could ask.
~I did my first craft show as a vendor-and made out pretty well for it being my first time! I made my vendor fee back plus much much more and had a great time. I'll save all the juicy details and pics for a future post!
~I got a raise at work :)
~I joined the gym in my attempt to get into shape post baby. I had been going to the gym once a week since about February to take a Zumba class with some ladies from work and decided to join just because it made the most sense.
~I'm nearly down to pre-pregnancy baby weight (with baby #3) that is...Weight Watchers has been an incredible tool that has helped me through the process along with a walking program I have joined at my job as well. I walk nearly everyday at lunch, sometimes in the morning before work too. I've come to the realization that 3 kids and nearly 10 years later out of high school I am NEVER going to be a size 00 again, or even be able to squeeze myself into the tiny hip hugger jeans they sell these days. Quite frankly, I don't want to either. The HOT MOM look isn't have your thong hanging out of your pants, but rather a look of tailored, fitted jeans and a nice form fitting top. It's a work in progress but I am slowly coming to terms with my new body and embracing the new curves that my 3 kids have given me!
~Angel has started Karate...it's been so long since I've blogged that I can't remember if I told you that either. Of course more pics and post to come on that one too!
Okay so I think that about sums up our crazy/busy life up for the past month! Until next time
