Family Pictures... (overload)

Hope you all enjoy them. I can't wait to get some Fall pictures done now. =) I just need to now get some printed out to put around the house and to send off the family members. I am so horrible about that.

Hey everyone

This week I have started my weight loss journey!

After my hard pregnancy from April 2011-January 2012, not being able to eat or drink during that time, when I was  FINALLY able to enjoy food right after Max made his arrival. I have decided the six months of my food binge has to come to an end! =(

I have been tracking my calories, weight, and exercise on Spark People. On top of that, I have hired a personal trainer to come to the house twice a week to whoop my butt in shape.

Two weeks ago I went to a wedding with one of my Best Friends and took this lovely picture..

(sorry its so small)
And after seeing it, I pretty much wanted to barf! Granted I love the dress... not so much on me with the weight that I am (hopefully it will look better once I lose some poundage).

My goal is to get back to where I was about 3 years ago, about 140 -135ish. Hell I would be happy with 150 at this point.
But I would really like to get back into my Skinny Citizen jeans. I am so tempted to hang them up in my "wardrobe room".

I hope everyone is staying cool in this hot summer weather that has been going around.
Stay tuned for more post.. I am hoping to get back in the swing of things.

Babies up from Nap.... time to go,

Just thought I would share a picture of my handsome Sir Fatness! =) Hope all is well with everyone.

Thoughts and Prayers

Thoughts and Prayers are needed for the Military Families and Civilians that were part of this horrific Jet crash! Thankfully both Pilots ejected and only have minor injuries! No deaths have been reported yet, and I am keeping my fingers crossed it stays that way.

 I literally live 10 minutes away from where this happened.

Why... Hello There!

Wowzers... it's been awhile! Hope all is well in blog land.
I thought I would give you some updated photos of Max, or as I like to call him Sir Fatness.

Here is his one month old picture (Feb 18th).. such a peaceful chunky monkey

And here is his most recent one (March 18th)... as you can see he's not so happy!

So far, everything has been great with him. He went for his 2 month check up on the 19th and he is weighing in at 14lbs and 24 inches long. =)

His sleep schedule is awesome!  We normally give him a bath around 8:45- 9ish, then feed him, put him down about 9:30 and he wakes up about 4:30 or 5 for his next bottle. Occasionally he will change it up to keep me on my toes and get up at 3:30 (like last night). As for his naps.. well they seem to be getting shorter and shorter every month.

He is becoming very vocal, and is rolling over from his tummy to his back.

Two more weeks we will be taking our first road trip to New York with him! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that he sleeps like he normally does in the car. It should definitely be interesting.

As for me.. I am FINALLY getting back to normal! The hoo-haaa is recovering nicely after the thirty plus stitches (or as I like to call it vaginal reconstruction). And I am still trying to get on a schedule for getting everything done in between nap times.

I am hoping in April I can start getting on a workout schedule, as well as healthier eating habits to lose this forty pounds that needs to go bye bye before the summer months.

Hope everyone is enjoying there Spring so far!

Photo Challenge FAIL =(

I tried people, I really did, but I've come to the conclusion having a newborn and trying to take random pictures daily... uploading those pictures daily just aren't fitting in with Max's schd. He barely lets me have time to do laundry let alone take a shower.

My two L.O.V.E.S

I <3 them both!

Photo Challenge

 I decided to partake in the February Photo Challenge.. although I am a day late, I will just do day 1 and 2 together. =)

 Day 1: View... here it is... My morning routine.. normally it's feed Max... put Max down for his 9 o'clock nap.. get a cup of coffee.. and turn on Live with Kelly.  Although today.. Max let Mommy sleep in until 9:30 so we missed Live with Kelly, so I get re-runs of Real Houswives of O.C. =)

Day 2: Words... I love this quote.. I actually have a wall hanging with this quote, but Chris won't let me display it because it's "too girlie".

Happy Thursday everyone!

Two Weeks

My little butterball is two weeks old today! I can't believe that two weeks has gone by as fast as it has. I couldn't ask for a better baby (knock on wood). He sleeps 3-4 hours at a time and is a wonderful eater... actually to good of an eater. Sometimes I get worried I may be feeding him too much, but when he acts like a little bird wobbling his head looking for his bottle, I kinda don't want to deprive him.

Chris and I have agreed that this Friday we will transition him from his cradle in our room to his crib. I figured we would do this when he doesn't have work the next day, so he can help out.

Stay tuned for more updated pictures.. I've been a bad Mom and haven't downloaded them onto the computer yet.

Happy Hump Day everyone.

Forty Four

That's how many pounds I need to lose post baby. I technically only have four pounds to lose to get back to pre-pregnancy weight, but not being able to eat for nine months is kinda haunting me right now, because all I want to do is eat EVERYTHING!!

I figure, I will give myself another week since I am still trying to recover from pushing out a nine pound baby, and then it's balls to the walls for losing this weight.

38 Weeks tomorrow....

And I am STOKED!!!

I have an OB appointment today, so I am hoping for some good news. If I don't have any good news, I still get to look forward to Jan 16th.. which I go in at 8pm for my SECOND blood transfusion... stay the night and then get induced on the morning on the 17th!! I am still hoping I go on my own before then, but if I don't then I know I only have a week left.

And let me tell you I am READY...

I am ready to eat again.. my last full meal was in July when I was admitted to the hospital for a week.. since then it has just been my TPN (liquid I food) and ice chips.

I am ready to get this Picc Line out of my arm, so I don't have to lug around a black back pack with my IV in it.

I am ready to not be swollen from all the fluid intake I have had.

I am ready to lose this weight that I have so not enjoyed gaining. It's amazing that still without me eating and just getting these fluids how much weight I have gained. Granted the IV fluid bags that I have daily are 3,000 calories, it's still  crazy to me.

I am ready for this hormonal acne to go away on my chin too, I am not use to having all these nards on my face and it's driving me NUTS!

And last but not least.. I am ready to meet my son.. Chris and I can't wait to see what he looks like.

Again.. here's to hoping for good news at the Doctors this afternoon.
