Month 1

It's been just about one month since we brought home Allee.

Other than being completely exhausting from frequent crying every 2 hours for her bottles it's been great!!

Baby is a BIG eater and loves to cuddle. She hates baths and diaper changes though. Lol. Oh well. :) Can't win them all!
 
Here is the ONLY picture of her not crying during a hair washing.
 
Otherwise, she looks like this after a bath.
 
Elena has been a great big sister! She helps a lot!!

She has been a tiny bit jealous the past couple of days. Mostly wanting me to include her in ANY baby talk or special attention she may notice. Otherwise she has been perfect with baby. She changed her sisters diaper for the first time a few days ago. It was sweet that she wanted to give it a try. She has been dead set against changing any diapers. I finally convinced her! She still won't change a poop diaper, but anything will work for me. :)
 
Allee has been such a joy! So many people at church have wanted to hold her, but with flu season and the norovirus circulating we just can't chance the exposure. It's so sweet that she is already so loved. :)
 
It's been a great month.
 
Not really sure I want to do this whole baby thing again, but it's been a great month. Lol.
 
I better get going. Baby is up.

Oh Chicago, How I love you!

I absolutely loved Chicago!!! We stayed in Pinegree Grove which is a suburb about an hour outside of the city, but we spent most of our time in the downtown area. We arrived on Sunday night and relaxed with dinner and some games. Allee even got some of the girls to play Barbies with her





I finally got to watch Rouge One with our host which was right up my alley! Monday went on the Big Bus Tours and got to see every single building in the city!  Listening to our tour guides describe different key points about the city made it so much more exciting than just driving by the buildings would have been. We also wandered through Millenium Park and I got to have a Chicago Style hot dog! I visited The Bean, Crown Fountain, Lurie Garden, Jay Pritzker Pavillion and walked through a bit more of Grant Park.

















I also got to visit The Field Museum of Natural History and it was awesome! We were going to go to the Art Institute of Chicago, but we changed our minds once we walked into the lobby and saw th…

My 1st week at my NEW JOB!!

Guys I got the job!!!
I am so excited I can't even begin to express it! I'm paying for my girls to be able to go to school and I'm contributing towards bills and it feels wonderful!! I know that as a stay-at-home mom I contributed a lot to my family dynamic, but there's something about being able to give financially towards expenses that feels amazing! 
Anyway, my first week passed and I can't tell you how great it was. The first three days I was training and would have to say that while I had what I feel like we're "training wheels" I was able to glean a lot of information from the person training me. By the fourth day she sort of did the 50/50 of letting me work by myself and assisting me. By day 5 she had gone out of town and I was working by myself! I can't tell you how awesome it felt to be able to sit at my desk and do the job that I was trained to do within 5 days AND feel like I was doing it well. It's a great feeling.

It also doesn't…

Week 15 Day 1

I can hardly believe that I have made it to 15 weeks of working out consistently. I've been eating healthy and gluten free for that long too! It's amazing to see how my body has changed and my energy level has been impacted. I am so very happy about what  diligence has done for me. I never want to go back to being inactive. 
I have been thinking about different goals. Finding myself considering how I can best  take my workouts up a notch. Never thought I would see myself be the person that would need to tweak a work out because I've gotten stronger. I have never stuck to anything long enough to see myself get to that point. It is beyond exciting.
I was in the car the other day and was daydreaming about learning something new like kickboxing or MMA. The crazy part about it is that it is totally possible for me to do something like that. I mean, I have been active long enough to where I could see it being a definite possibility. Maybe I should take a look around in my area …
