Back on the wagon...

I'm a lifetime member at Weight Watchers...and proud of it! Betsy is 5 weeks old, and I wanted to start the weight loss journey early, and especially going into the Christmas season. I gave myself a freebie through Thanksgiving, but now it's time to get serious. I never fully lost all the weight I wanted after Lily, I just didn't buckle down. But this time is gonna be different! I'm gonna be honest, I have roughly 25 lbs. to lose to get to my goal weight. Today was my first day back, and since I'm a lifetimer, which means I've done the program before (about 4 years ago I lost 25 lbs.) and I just had a baby, they give me 12 weeks free to get back to goal weight. I think I can do it. I'm being very public about this because I feel like it makes me more accountable. I'll post periodic updates of how much I've lost. I'm hoping I can do it in my 3 month free time frame! If you want to do it with me, I'd be more than happy to go to the meetings with you! Let me know!! The journey begins...!!!

3 going on 18!

Lily turned 3! We had a great party last night for her at my parents. Lots of noise and fun...just the way it should be! Lily got a ton of awesome gifts, from her roller coaster, to dolls, and pretend food and cooking supplies...even a goldfish! Happy Birthday Lilers! We Love you!

The Invitation!

The roller coaster was a hit! Lily had a hard time sharing...

This is her pet fish which she named "Flower" that she got from her Aunt Jessica and Uncle Eric.

Turning 3!

Lily's Birthday is quickly approaching! The 17th to be exact. I sent out email invitations, and if you didnt get one it's cuz I dont have your email address. If you want to come, leave your email in a comment, or contact me at and I'd be more than happy to send one to you!

2 weeks!

I took some pics yesterday. Get your fill now cuz I'm not doing anymore photoshoots of her for 2 whole weeks! :-) I figured at month would be a good time to do another one.
Things are going pretty good. I'm trying to work my way through the "baby blues"...or whatever you want to call 'em. Mostly just anxiety and emotional. I dont know how a newly postpartum mom would not get it with the lack of sleep and all! I pretty much feel zombie-ish to be honest. But it's all good! She's a good baby, and Lily is starting to feel better after a week of being sick. That's enough to overwhelm anyone!
Trying to separate Lily from Betsy is a task! She just loves her and goes crazy if I don't let her help out. I just can't stand the thought of a sick 2-week-old baby though. Anyways, here's another bout of pictures of Betsy in all her cuteness!
