To eat or not to eat? That is the question!

Lets just start out with, I LOVE FOOD! Now that i got that out of the way, we can get down to business. About 2 months after having Brody i decided it was about time to do something about the 15+ pounds i had gained along with the baby bump! So i rallied up a couple of my girl friends and my sister and we all joined weight watchers together. Let me tell you, it has been such a FUN thing to do!
Every Saturday morning we meet at a coffee shop and then head to the meeting together. There really is power in numbers! It has been so helpful to have my friends there with me, checking on me :) I have officially lost 15 pounds and kept it off for 6 weeks! And to be fair i truly do owe a BIG thank you to weight watchers! It has been a great journey so far and i plan on continuing with attending meetings, enjoying my successes and sharing my pitfalls in weight loss!
Until next time enjoy, the sun!

We noticed that Brods was mesmerized when we ate... he would watch every bite traveling to our mouths and continue to stare as we made it through the meal.... every once and awhile as the food made its way to my mouth i would notice Brody open his as if he was receiving that same bite. So naturally I thought this was the sign that he was ready! So he got tried his first bite of cereal on Sunday! He was not a fan at all! Well i think that we approached it all wrong, totally my fault. I thought that it would make sense to feed him the cereal when he was hungry... boy was i wrong! He screamed and cried until he got his bottle. Well after talking to my mom she brought up a good point that maybe we should try and feed it to him while we are all eating our dinner. So Nana (my mom) held Brods while we ate and he was just playing around with his spoon, no cereal on it, having a grand ole time so we decided it was his big moment! I loaded the spoon up with some rice cereal and in it went! The picture says the rest....

4.19.2010 UPDATE....
Brody is now eating cereal once a day! And he is getting very very good at it :) He really enjoys playing with the spoon. It so cute because when he sees the bowl he gets really excited, when he sees that spoon come out its game on! I am so proud of my big boy.... words can not describe how i am finding new wonders of motherhood everyday. Truly the most wonderful blessing in all of life!

Happy Monday!

Just the begining

Hi everyone! So i know that during my pregnancy i totally slacked on blogging towards the end! Like slacked so bad i never blogged. lol But i am back with a vengeance! I have been thinking about blogging a lot lately and decided to give it a second try! This one will not be so specific... more of a memoir of our life as a family :) Something that hopefully we can look back on and enjoy together! I will try and keep up with it, at least once a week. It is just crazy how fast life goes, i feel like i was typing on my pregnancy blog just yesterday, i blinked.... and here i am with a beautiful, intelligent and amazingly special 4 month Brody :) Take care until next time!
