Pure sweetness huh?!
I didn't think of these "1st pictures" until Thanksgiving...so we are lacking a Halloween photo....but I'm enjoying seeing how much he has changed!
While taking all his 50 photos to get the 1 shot....Reid came and laid down next to Cole...I got the sweetest picture of the 2 brothers!
Reid adores Cole and Cole just lights up whenever Reid is around. I pray their love for each other continues as the days...months....years go by.
Right now Reid is in a crazy stage. One minute he likes something...the next it can set him off in a holler! Stand back...because this boy has lungs.
Thankfully he is talking a lot more and we are able to understand a bit more what he is asking/saying.
I'm in the process of planning his 2nd birthday party.
Going the camping theme route. Hubs has finally quit asking why I do all this....
I told him I needed him to make some wooden tent stands....all he did was say..."Let me know when" ...wow...he's given in to my craziness! YES!
Speaking of the Hubs... caught a fever and or flu...the day before new years eve. New Years Eve he was still feverish and feeling poorly...by that evening I felt it coming...
Woke up New Years Day with fever and body aches and #4 did too.
I got zero chances to rest the entire day....I was feeling like I was hit by a truck wanted to cry, but yet had 3 small ones to care for...hubs was still slightly ill.
#4 and I still have a fever, but at least I don't feel like a truck hit me...I just feel worn out. I would kill for a chance to sit (typing this with #5 in my lap)
Here's hoping that isn't how the whole year will turn out....worn out!
I don't make resolutions....I'm making Goals
Goal #1 Get a Double Oven
My single oven has been sick for about 4 yrs now (points to self) It heats 25 degrees higher at times...which is a pain to watch and control. And I can only cook one pan at a time b/c if 2 are in there then the oven turns the heat up even higher. You ever cooked for a family of 8 like that? Takes me ages. Don't even get me started when I'm baking cookies. I live in the kitchen so only fitting I get a double oven. I told hubs I want to move this oven to the garage so I can have 3. Probably cost more to create a hook up then to buy a triple oven (do they make those?)
Not sure yet how to reach this goal. I don't think the Price is Right is an option.
Goal #2 Lose 20 lbs
I've since Lost my baby weight, but need to drop 15-20lbs and tone it to look like I did on my Wedding Day. I know it's possible...it's the motivation part I need help with. I would like for 45 mins to work out...it's the getting someone to watch the kids that I have issues with.
Everyone says...Work out at naptime...When would I have all 3 down? Lily doesn't nap. And I use that time for one on one with her ...(that is if I can get Reid and Cole napping at same time)
They say work out after kids go down. Obviously these ppl don't have a family of 8 with more dishes to put away to start last load before bed. 3 loads of laundry to fold. House to straighten up before bed just so it can get crazy the next day. Make a list of what needs to be done to prepare for the next day. And a husband to pay attention to...b/c, well that's what we good wives do!
I wish all of that burned calories and made me look sleek! (grins)
