Just a few "THINGS!"

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!  


  1. Hi Brooke!
    I am trying to get your cute cute ou/ow mini unit but can't. I don't belong to Scribod and don't really want to pay their fee. Could you please send it to me if it isn't too much trouble? I would be sooooo thrilled! Thanks! : )

  2. Hi Brooke,
    I am an After School worker, teaching 2nd Graders. I have mostly ELL students and most are at least 1 grade behind. Do you have "words" flash cards with pictures? Or can anything that would be helpful to use for English language practice?
    Thanks, Pat
