this is one of her picture ideas. she wanted to make a heart with her hands.
Ben and Becky update:
We're still working on getting into a new routine that includes Evie. Ben is still working hard, but tries to be home early when he can. The girls are always counting the days til the weekend, so they can spend time with him. Ben is thrilled that football season has started again, and is patiently waiting to buy the next video game he wants. I really thought he'd have bought it by now, but he has held off so far. I almost bought it for him yesterday, but then thought he might just not want it yet. We took all the toys out of the upstairs playroom, so it can be converted back into a nursery. Ben put Evie's crib together, and now i just need to finish putting the rest of it together. I am fitting in projects where I can. yesterday I made myself some skirts with elastic waist bands. I know it's a fashion no no, but I am between pant sizes right now, and frustrated with not fitting in any of my "big" clothes, or any of my "small" clothes. So I give up on pants for now. We bought a new eliptical, so I will wait and see how I like that before thinking about rejoining the gym. I know it takes me some time to lose weight after a baby, so I have to stop wishing I were one of "those" women. You know, the ones who drop all the weight immediately without even trying? They exist, and knowing some of them personally makes it harder not to be part of the club. But I am dropping my ding dong a day habit, and taking a glass of water to bed instead of chocolate milk. baby steps... Oh, I also got some new healthy cookbooks. But I've already been trying to cook healthy meals since Kara had her digestive problems, so the meals aren't all that different than what I'm already doing. it has given me a few new ideas and options I hadn't thought of on my own.
