Memories Made

I just wanted to write this down in case I forgot it.

I just sat on my couch with Joshua and Lucas for 15 minutes and just laughed. I think its the funniest few minutes of my life.

I was moving Lucas mouth really fast as he made noise. It was coming out bababababa, babble that we are attempting in speech therapy. But as I moved his mouth, he would start belly laughing. Then mommy would start laughing. Then Joshua. All the while, Lucas still attempting to make the sound. He kept wanting me to do it, so I did.

What a perfect moment in my life.

It makes the hard days disappear, even for a moment.

Pictures Pictures!!

We are getting our family pictures this weekend and I can't wait. I really love the picture we took last year. Its everywhere. I stare at it up the stairs 15 times a day. I love it. It makes me so happy looking at it. BUT, I can't wait to have a new one. I just can't wait! YAY!!!!

Can you tell that I am bit excited? A whole blog entry. Seriously?

Oh, a couple pounds down from last week. Nothing major, but I'll take it. I finally got off my booty today and worked out too. Sheesh, finally.

New digs

Lucas started physical therapy last week. So far, its going OK. I'm taking Joshua with me until we can schedule therapy during his preschool. He doesn't understand that he can't go and play. I try to explain to him that the kids there need special care. They need to learn to walk and move right. But he just thinks that he is left out. Poor kid. It just has to be so hard being the brother of a special needs kid.

Talking with the therapist, we discussed bath time. Lucas has a bath seat that works OK, but I worry about his g-tube catching on it. He can't splash and play very well. So they gave me a new seat to try out. Its a free loaner program. Its pretty nice. The only thing I don't like about it right now is that the kids can't bathe together. I loved that time with them both. But, maybe someday.

Check out the new seat.

Skinny boy


Well, we had a pretty good Halloween last weekend. We went to the church that Joshua has preschool. They had a little harvest festival. There were just enough kids there to make it fun, and not too many to make mommy crazy. Here are a few pictures of our night.

I wasn't in the picture taking kind of mood, so this is the best they get.

I can't seem to upload them to my Facebook page, so here they are.

Its Time

So, its time. I really think its time. The holidays are coming and well, I'm chubby. Too chubby for my pants anymore. With Thanksgiving and Christmas right around the corner, I really gotta do something, or my pants will never fit again!

I am not sure what I am going to do. I basically have tried everything and the only thing that ever worked was nursing my kid! LOL. Well, since thats out of the question. Weight Watchers worked too. So, since I am a cheap skate, I am thinking of just trying to watch what I eat and exersize. The second part is the hardest. With my hubby working, 2 kids, no gym membership and a busy schedule, when do I find the time? Thats been my excuse so far, and it hasn't done me any good.

So here goes nothing. Monday morning, off my butt. And NO halloween candy!!!
