1 month old!

Forde is 1 month old... oh my gosh I cant believe my baby is already 1 month old.
how fast time goes by. And already he is looking so different, he was 6 pounds 10 ounces when he was born and now he is over 10 pounds, he is a little chunk. 
   And I love it thats exactly how Ky was when she was a baby. well the only pic I could get on his 1 month was when he was sleeping but its so cute anyways.....

              Now isnt he super cute! I just love to sit and cuddle with him.

My new favorite things....

  Ok so I have new fav's that I would like to share, I have really been trying to eat better ever since Forde was born and I have been having a really hard time. All of you who know me know that I love junk food, I mean if there is a cookie, chips, candy any kind of treats even near by I know it and I am all over it I cant help its my addiction.  And after reading blogs about April and Steph eating better and losing weight I was inspired to start doing better. So as of right now I am 20 pounds heavier still than I was before I got prego, sad I know and I know I have my work cut out for me... So Nate and I just joined the gym and we have been only buying fruits, veggies and other healthy snacks. I cant do the extreme diets like April has done, I mean she is amazing how much she has lost and sticking to that diet cant be easy. So I have found some other things to help me along my way which I am about to share with you... they are truly amazing products. 
    ok atleast I think so...

2.            these smart ones meals are amazing, my friend maria told me about them 
  and I am so glad because these meals are low calories between 200 to 300 per meal which is less than a big mac at mcdonalds. they have so many varietys and choices my fav brocoli and baby potatoes in chedder cheese sauce, I highly recomend you try this product, I eat one for lunch everyday and then make a healthy dinner for the fam...  you can usualy get them on sale at albertsons...

ok now my next fav I absolutly love 100 calorie snack packs mainly because they are super yummy and for all those out there who like cookies and crackers but hate the way you feel after these will keep you on the right track. (if you go to sams club or costco they are cheaper in bulk)   ok and finally special k protein water they supress your appetite so when you get the urge to snack drink one of these it really works I find that I only need half of one to make me feel full and then I put the other half in the fridge for later... also you can get them on sale if you just check around.

preschool graduation!

  So today we went to the girls preschool graduation. I must admit
I got a little teary eyed. I think mostly because they were my babies for so long and 
now they will be starting Kindergarten, which I am excited about but it was just hard for me, 
I think it was harder for me to see Lundyn move on because she has been in preschool
for 3 years and she has had the same theropists since she was 1 year old, and really 
they are like family to us and now that she is getting older we are also having to get 
new people working with her.  I mean I was also sad about Ky as well but she is ready for kindergarten and is such a big girl now, I just think combined with having a new baby and 
my girls getting older I was a bit overwhelmed today! 
        I know some of you know how I feel or will know soon. Well here are some pics of there 
special day. 

                            Ky and Lund with there cute little graduation hats...

                              There class singing there songs for there program.

                                         Lundyn and her theropist and class helper,

its been a while...

   hey everyone, I know its been quite a while since I posted something. But I have 
been super busy. I never knew having another baby would be so much work. But it has been fun and chalenging at the same time. I had a pretty hard first week. First the nursing didnt go well at all and yes I gave up now normally I dont give up on things that easy but I was so stressed out I think mostly because Lundyn wanted to be near me all the time and it was hard to feed him with her around, and it was really hard. 
      I felt so guilty at first but thanks to my supportive husband and family I had an easy time getting through it. Another thing was waking up at night I forgot how hard it was with the girls because it has been over 5 years, I mean I love to sleep more than anyone else I think and let me tell you what a struggle, not to mention I had to go out and buy pants that would fit me because as most of you know having kids really makes things   weird on your body, and for some reason your never the same. except those lucky few who look as though they have never had any children what so ever. 
     Well I have new pics to post but have no idea what happened to the camera so when I figure out where I placed it I will post more pics... and I will post his pics that I get taken at kiddie kandids tomorow.  Well Forde is doing great he has gained almost 2 pounds now he was 6 pounds 10 ounces when he was born and he is over 8 pounds now... this kid loves to eat. 
    And I love how he is getting so chubby he already has a double chin, and looks just like his daddy. I am one proud momma I have the best kids ever the girls have been awesome big sisters they love helping with everything and I am glad because I was worried they would have a harder time.  Thankyou to all the friends and family who sent things to the baby and brought us dinner we really appreciate all you have done for us. look for more pics tomorow....
