Working Out!

It has been a fun week I joined a gym and am loving it. I forgot how much I enjoy working out. My arms are extremely sore but I guess no pain no gain. I just don't want to be broken; I can handle a little pain! It's been fun getting to use different equipment, and going with my mom and friends has been very motivating. Hopefully this will help me get my baby weight off! It does help that Russell is super supportive of me going, he takes care of the baby and never complains about me being gone. He's a great guy!

Happy Crafting!!!

I was attending a baby shower tonight and decided to make the gift I would be giving. It was a lot of fun to be sewing again. I made a trendy diaper bag, a wipes case, and a nursing cover. I was extremely excited with how easy the nursing cover was to make, it took less than one hour. I haven't been able to sew since having the baby (unless you count sewing merit badges on my son's scout uniform). It was very therapeutic to be able to be sitting at my sewing machine again creating.

It has been a LOOOOONG couple of weeks. We've experienced a head cold and the stomach flu which went through all of us but baby Peter! (Thankfully he didn't get sick) I have a few pics to post. Peter's first bath. He received a ducky towel and he is so cute all wrapped up in it. He loved taking a bath.

Christian lost a tooth and gave me the cheesiest grin to remember it always! He is such a little Russell. He just cracks us up. He loves Peter soo much. He is always saying things to Peter like "we are going to be the best of friends!" and the other day when he was upset he came in my room picked Peter up off my bed and said to him in the most serious voice "you are the only one who understands me!" It was hilarious I had a hard time not laughing at him, but I knew if I did he would be very upset.
Charity had a party with her friends this week. She had a lot of fun. They played games, decorated cookies, and painted a picture frame. They were a little wild but what does one expect from 5 9 year olds.

Noel, my little blondie, is such a sweetheart. She says to me everyday "I want to hold it" it would be Peter. No matter how many times I tell her You want to hold him or You want to hold Peter she always reverts back to it. I have some cute pictures of her holding "IT".

Grace decided she wanted to wear her swimsuit last week even though it was freezing cold outside. She then proceded to put on daddy's hat. I couldn't resist taking a picture she looked completely ridiculous.

And then there is me and Austin posing with Peter before church. I can't believe how tall Austin is getting I have a feeling he is going to pass me up.

Peter's Blessing

We blessed Peter today it was such a sweet blessing! He was wide awake for the whole thing and didn't even cry. I have to say it was a little stressful getting everyone ready for church and trying to be there on time. We didn't have time to take pics. so hopefully I will be able to take pictures later and I will post them.
