I love my boys

I feel so blessed to be able to stay home with my boys. It is the best job ever but the hardest by far! That is something my mom has told me for as long as I can remember. Somedays I feel bored and trapped at home. The boys keep me busy though. I try to get out with them when ever possible. We have a great time together and Noah is always entertaining me. Today he got into Jeremy's deodorant. He put it on himself and all of his stuffed animals. Goofy kid!

Noah is just the funniest little guy ever! He is always making people laugh. When we go to Grandma and Papa's, he loves to go see the cows. He gets so excited and starts saying BOOOO! Cows are by far his favorite animal. He also loves to sing and dance while watching cartoons. Veggietales are his favorites (mine too!) At this time, he is always imitating mom and dad. He trys to walk around wearing our shoes. When I get ready in the mornings, he stands next to me and brushes his teeth and hair. He even pretends to put on make up and put in contact lenses! He is such a wonderful big brother too! He calls Asa "Bubby." Noah is always rubbing Asa's back, kissing his head and poking him in the eye. I can see that they will be best friends soon.

Asa is my snuggly little baby. He wants to be held all the time! He sure makes it hard to get anything done. He is 6 weeks old now. We haven't been to the doctor in a month so I'm not sure what he weighs. I bet he's gained quite a bit of weight though. He eats all the time! When he gets hungry, he snorts like a pig so I call him piglet. As of now he eats every two to three hours. One night he slept almost 5 hours. I can't wait for that to become more regular. I miss sleeping. He is getting more alert everday and stronger too. He can hold his head up for a minute or so. I am looking forward to his first smile. He seems kinda grumpy and frowns most of the time. He tolerates his big brother quite well though. It doesn't even seem to bother him when he gets poked in the eye! Soon he will be playing and sharing with Noah.

I'm a loser baby...

It's been five weeks now since I had Asa. It's hard having a baby at the begining of summer (or being pregnant in the summer- done that too!) While it seems like everyone else is putting their bikinis on and laying out, I'm covering up in baggy t-shirts and gym shorts.

Luckily for me, I had a good delivery and was able to start working out at 1 1/2 weeks post partum (not with the Dr's ok though!)I've lost 20lbs since coming home from the hospital...that's what makes me a loser. I'm happy to have lost 20 lbs so quickly but I'd still like to lose another 20 or 25lbs. Technically I'm still overweight for my height. I never really had to lose weight before I had kids so I had no idea how hard it would be! I wasn't even able to get back down to my pre-preg weight after having Noah. It's really frustrating seeing all the celebrity "moms" on t.v. They are all back to normal in no time and make it look easy. Ugh. Anyways, I'm working hard at it and hopefully this hard work will pay off. My goal is to be twenty pounds lighter by the end of the summer.

I'm Baaccccckkkkk!

Whoa! It's been over a year since I started this blog and since the last post! Sorry. Maybe this year I'll do better. :) So, I went through and updated a few things ~ Added a couple of pics and gave it a fresh look.

A lot has happened this last year! My baby boy Noah is growing up so fast. In just a few months he'll be two. Time flies! On May 20th, 2010 baby boy Asa joined our family. He weighed 9lbs 6oz and was 20 3/4 inches long. I recently started back up with summer school. Busy, busy, busy. Five years of college down, 5 to go... Ugh, I hope not!

Anyways, we are now members of Nashua Baptist Church. Love it. It is definitly the place for us. We joined in March. Shortly after joining, Jeremy was asked if he would be interested in the Youth Minister position. After lots of prayer and meeting with the pastor and personnel committee, the church voted YES. We are super excited and can't wait to see what God has for us and the students at Nashua.

Well, that's it for now. Hopefully I'll be back soon!
