Park Day

Today was bearable outside!  Woohoo!!!!!  We took advantage of the evening and went to the park.  It was the first time Emily has really enjoyed her time there, so that was fun.  Andrew would spend all day outside if we let him, so he was happy.

Just maybe...this is my favorite picture of all time.

Jumping on rocks!

Emily's I'm-amused-and-proud-of-myself-but-oh-so-humble smile.  I love it.

Hey look!  I was there!

Bowl to Muppet

Do you remember when Mike took me on a surprise date to try out a pottery wheel?  Well, we finally picked up my "bowl."  I thought it kind of looked like a muppet, so that's what I painted it as.  :)  I'm not sure what I can do with the little guy, but I do kind of like him.

The boy

Andrew is three.  Very three.  He's a little ball of energy (as usual) and such a sweetheart.

Begged to wear my shirt one day, refused to wear his own clothes for 2 days.  Carrying around a teddy bear his daddy had when he was little.

Posing by his bed after helping Daddy make it one morning.  He was sooooo proud of himself.

Andrew LOVES piggy banks.  Daddy ordered him a good sturdy one, and every night when he gets home he'll give Andrew his change to put in his "piggy back."

Here he is making 2 "3s".  That's the answer to everything lately.  How are you?  3.  How old are you?  3.  What are you doing?  3.

Reading with Emily.

Family Pizza and a movie night.  It was Andrew's (and Em's) first time watching Bambi.  We only watched about 1/2 of it, skipping some of the parts that he was scared by, and he really liked it!  And Emily is a cheeseball.

This is the face he made during a lot of the movie.  Then he would smile and crack up.

I know, he desperately needs a haircut.  I just love that sweet little preschooler of mine.

I took these today.  So far this year, I've lost 25 lbs.  I still have a long way to go, but I am so happy I've made this life-changing decision to take my health into my hands and become a more confident, happy person.

Long-lost twins?

Am I totally wrong, or does my adorable, sweet little gal really truly look like Gollum in this picture?
Isn't she precious?
