Project 365: Days 16-29

Day 16 {1-16-12} My kids LOVE yogurt. This won't even last them a week.

Day 17 {1-17-12} Being silly before swim lessons.

Day 18 {1-18-12} I was off doing something with Callie and came back into the kitchen and found Alexa and Braden holding hands while they were eating a snack. <3

Day 19 {1-19-12} One of Callie's favorite pastimes. Licking the patio door. Or windows. Or the front of the stove...

Day 20 {1-20-12} Friday night...homemade pizza and movies.

Day 21 {1-21-12} Saturday morning I started reading The Hunger Games and this was basically my view the rest of the day. I couldn't put it down.

Day 22 {1-22-12} The kids love all the extra Daddy time they get on weekends!

Day 23 {1-23-12} Bath time!

Day 24 {1-24-12} I love their relationship. I'm not saying they don't have their moments, because they definitely do! But most of the time they having having each other around. It melts my heart!

Day 25 {1-25-12} 5 days later I finished all 3 books. SO GOOD!! I can't wait for the movies to come out!

Day 26 {1-26-12} He cracks me up...

Day 27 {1-27-12} I saw this idea on Pinterest. You have 2 with marbles for the pounds you want to lose and one for the pounds you have already lost. I like having a visual, it helps you see what you're working towards AND it's a great feeling moving a marble from one to the other. :) 1 month in and 13 pounds down!

Day 28 {1-28-12} My handsome husband. <3

Day 29 {1-29-12} Mmmmm, marshmallows. :)

Project 365: Days 10-15

Day 10 {1-10-12} 50 degrees on January 10th in Wisconsin. LOVE it! We spent the afternoon at the park.

Day 11 {1-11-12} Day 1 of the Shred.

Day 12 {1-12-12} This picture turned out kind of blurry but I still love it. Braden and Callie have such a sweet bond and it melts my heart. He (most of the time, as long as she isn't trying to take his toys) is so sweet to her and nobody can make her laugh the way he does. He is going to be such a protective big brother.

Day 13 {1-13-12}

Day 14 {1-14-12} We can't go to the mall without riding the carousel.

Day 15 {1-15-12} Life with a baby. :)

Callie - 9 Months

Our little peanut had her 9 month check today.
Besides finding out she had a double ear infection :( everything else looks great. I feel horrible for not knowing about the ears, but she hasn't been complaining about them. She must be a tough little girl!
And if that didn't make me feel like mother of the year, I didn't even know that she got her second tooth! Thanks to our pediatrician, we now know.
Weight: 25 pounds (99%)
Length: 28.5 inches (79%)
Head Circumference: 18 inches (90%)

Hip Update:
We went back into Gillette at the end of October for our first post harness check-up. They did x-rays and everything is growing exactly like it should be! We are SO thankful! We go in again when she turns one.
We were prepared for some developmental delays due to the time spent in her harness, but that wasn't going to stop this girl! I think she was our quickest to catch onto things. Army crawling before 5 months, pulling herself up by 6 months, and now she is trying her hardest to start walking. She will crawl into the closet to get a laundry basket so she can walk around pushing it. :)

Before we were ever even pregnant with Callie, I had friends with 3 or more kids say how different it is once you have your third and now I totally understand what they were talking about. I don't even know how to explain it or what it even is, but it has been awesome. We are enjoying every second of this sweet girl! Now if only time could slow down a tiny bit...

Day 9 {1-9-12} One of her favorite pastimes...the dishwasher. She LOVES the thing!

Day 8 {1-8-12}

Happy New Year!!
Long time no see, huh!? Apparently I needed a {long} {totally not planned} blogging break. However, one of my new years resolutions (I don't really make resolutions, so let's say "goals") is to get back into blogging. I miss it and it's my own little way of documenting our lives as our children grow up. So 8, first post, not too bad, right!? :)

I am also starting over on Project 365.
New year. New start. Here we go...

Day 1 {1-1-12} The kids rang in the New Year with Grampa and Gramma and Matt and I actually got to go out with friends. Not sure who had more fun. :) AND it was Callie's first night away from home! My mom my disagree, but I think I did pretty well. ;)

Day 2 {1-2-12} Matt took the week between Christmas and New Years off so we had TEN whole days together. It was awesome! We spent almost the entire last day playing the new games that the kids got from Christmas.

Day 3 {1-3-12} I LOVE my planner. I would be lost without it.

Day 4 {1-4-12} My view while trying to prepare dinner. (Similar to breakfast, lunch and snacks.) I'm not gonna lie, I love it.

Day 5 {1-5-12} We grill all winter long anyway, but it is SO much better when it's mid 40s. (In January!)

Day 6 {1-6-12} I took a bunch of pictures of Braden this day and didn't realize until I sat down and started looking at them on my computer how grown up he is looking. :( WHERE did my baby boy go!?

Day 7 {1-7-12} My "studio" for taking Callie's 9 month pictures. (That would be my kitchen...)
