The past few weeks have been crazy-fun! We have been up to a little bit of everything! This is one of my favorite little projects that we did. I literally have my own "thing 1," "thing 2," and "thing 3." I didn't make one for Jax. He does great with footprint/paint projects, but his hands go straight for his mouth or his head. . .and there's paint everywhere! I have snapped a zillion pictures of paintings, art projects, writing, and more which I'll share soon!
So now that Jax is 9 months old [actually about 9 1/2 months]. My sister (the Dr. of the family says. . .it takes 9 months to get all the weight on, give yourself at least 9 months to take it off). I have come to the realization that any and ALL "baby weight" should be gone. . .here I am contemplating this fact as I stand in front of our full length mirror. Babies do some major changes to your body. Each time I have given birth within about 2 months I've been back into all of my regular clothes and back down to my pre-prego weight. . .but my body looks so incredibly different every time! I have been drinking TONS of water, eating fresh fruit and veggies, and taking in lots of whole grains. My biggest weaknesses is. . .candy!!! This month I've officially started working my core like crazy and using the elliptical like it's going out of style. It's time to tone up for summer! If you're a busy mom with a great tip for working out or staying fit, I'd love to hear from you!
I probably should not post this right after I mention toning up and staying fit, but we got the fries and St. Paddy's sauce last year. The boys had a good time with it, and I'm looking forward to a blind taste test this year!
