My baby is getting so BIG! And he has changed so much in the last month...

#1 New Thing - He now says "Momma" & "Mom-mom-mom"!! Squee! I love it! :o)

Also: Crawling all over the place, can sit up on his own from pretty much any position, is eating two meals a day which consist of half a jar of baby food and oatmeal, thinks veggies are the bees' knees, still quite the snuggler (especially with mommy), has been fairly consistently going to bed between 8:30 - 9:00 every night and sleeps till I get him up in the morning to go to Sarah's (which is about 6:50ish), has started "clapping" his fists together - hasn't really figured out how to open his hands and clap, loves his "Frank" that Sarah made him and is crazy about his exersaucer/bouncer, is such a little ham - always sooo smiley, already wearing 6-9 mo and 9 months clothes, and he is a BITING FOOL - loves to use those 4 teeth (not sure what I'm going to do with him on this on…

Being +25lbs Overweight is NOT Ok...

Starting weight: 166.4
Last week's weight: N/A
Current weight: N/A
Weight +GAIN / -LOSS this week: 0
Total weight lost: 0

I've gained 10 lbs back since I've stopped breastfeeding. Unacceptable. I'm kind of freaking out because I'm not really sure how this is happening but its got to stop. So - I'm joining Brandy's FAF's so hopefully I can have some accountability.

The deal is, Jason and I are going on a cruise this winter and I MUST look hot. I can't look like this and wear a bikini for a week! My hubs is smokin' HAWT and a sexy mo' fo' and I can't be a squishy, saggy wife to a sexy mo' fo'... When we started dating I weighed 145. My all time goal weight would be 140 [well, 130 if I'm talking about my all time, wish I could be weight] so that's my goal. Maybe if I have to tell the world how much I weigh I'll feel that much more compelled to lose weight. I'm desperate!! I'll take pics and be more prepared for ne…

God Bless Texas

We bought this bib in Gruene, TX when we were on our family vacation in Texas last year after we got married.

You can also see the infamous two top teeth that have finally popped through. Again - Cutest thing ever. Although, I think he may have inherited my gap between his front first I was disappointed for my baby boy, but after I thought about what he'd look like and that he can get braces, I squee'd at how adorable he is with a little gap between his teeth. Although, now I can't really tell if he has my gap or his daddy's ginormous teeth - either way its gonna be adorable.

P.S. We really miss our Texas family!!

I love to oat, oat, oat, opples & bononos!

Brazos has entered the world of solid foods! He had been eating a little bit of rice cereal here and there but the first time we tried it a couple months ago in the bowl, he was still thrusting his tongue and didn't quite get it. So after his 6 month appt, we got the go ahead to start solids full on - which means FRUITS! :o)

So we went with Bananas (and then applesauce a few days later) and switch over to oatmeal instead of rice cereal. I'm still pumping breastmilk for his cereal and he gets BF in the morning when he wakes up but the rest of the day he's getting formula. After a rough month of clogged ducts, being far too busy for all my scheduled pump times at work, and a yucky case of mastitis that had me down with a 102* fever for three days, my milk supply has dwindled down to nothing. So, I'm accepting defeat [somewhat] and I'm switching over to morning and night BF only. It was a tough decision but its been a couple weeks and now I feel like it was the right …

Craigslist + Crazy People = Much Hilarity

At work, we having a running "game" as to who can find the craziest FREE stuff on craigslist. If you've never checked out the free section, I strongly encourage you to do so. And after you do once, you won't be able to stop yourself from doing it every day.

The best one that we've found before today [and there have been MANY], has definitely been the lady giving away the dry cheese packets out of the box macaroni n cheese. You see, her mother uses the macaroni out of the boxes to make her macaroni salad and they have a bunch of cheese packets left over from all this macaroni salad her mother makes for church, pot lucks, and whatnot, so she figured someone should be able to get use of the leftover cheese - I mean, some people like extra cheese in the mac n cheese, right?! Totally logical. And then it seems some people just have too much time on their hands to post random crap for free on craigslist.

Well today, a girl at work found this little gem:
