How is my progress?

Well, I just wanted to update on my weight loss. Of 54 lbs. gained during pregnancy I have just 17 left to lose!!! I am happy with this progress! Asher is only 15 weeks old. I hope to lose all of my baby weight for our Christmas photos, which are being done by the same photographer who did our most recent photos in Manito Park. So exciting!!!

Our 9th Wedding Anniversary

Josh and I have been married for 9 years today. What a ride! We have 3 beautiful children and so much love! I can't tell you what a joy it is to be married to this handsome man! I love him so much and he gives our family so much! He is a great dad but since this is our wedding anniversary, I'll talk about him as a husband. Most of you know that Josh and I were married when we were 20 years old. We were young and wanted different things back then. After 3 years of marriage we divorced. It was very painful and very hard. After two years we re-married and have never been happier. I guess we both needed to grow up a bit and we did. So for the last 6 years we have been sealed together for time and all eternity not till death do you part in the Mormon Temple in Reno, NV. I love that we have an eternal family. Josh is a wonderful partner. He does chores when he gets home from work, he bathes the kids, he puts them to bed, he rubs my back, he landscapes the yard after work, he loves me deeply and lets me know at random times so I feel special. He does all these things (not all every single day that would be nuts lol) and he is calm and laid back. I'm not so laid back so he balances me out. We make a great team in many many ways.

He knows me better than anyone in the world and he is my best friend. I can not imagine life without him. I know that if we live for 50 more years I will still be just as in love with him as I am today if not more.

Happy Anniversary my love!

Extra! Extra! Read all about it!

Ok - My loving husband was rubbing my shoulders while I sat at the computer and asked me what I was making for dinner. Then, he pulls one hair out of my head. Yes, it hurt. What the heck? A dead hair? A stray hair? A hair he thought was unattatched? No, it was a gray hair!!!! A long gray hair. No denying it, my first official gray hair shown to me by Josh. UUUGGGHHHH! I'm only 31!! He laughed and said well he's only 31 and he has hundreds of gray hairs. Am I really getting old already? Anybody else find a gray hair recently?

This kid doesn't have to worry about gray hairs. He doesn't even have to worry about no hairs like most babies. This was taken last night. It's getting more wild looking. LOL

Asher 13 weeks old!

UPDATE: Do you think Asher's eyes look Chinese? If not what shape do you think they are? Baby doll? LOL

Asher will actually be 14 weeks old tomorrow but I took these pictures of him 9/9/09
He is such a sweet baby. I enjoy him so much. He is very easy going and never fusses unless he is hungry or tired. He has a great personality and loves to be near me. What joy!

What'd I Say?

Sheesh kiddos....

My weight loss journey

I haven't gotten to post about the chubba chubba gone gone train ride so I thought I would give an update! Since my beautiful family photos were done I have lost another 9 pounds! That brings me down to only 23 pounds to go before having lost all 54 pounds of baby weight gained. So exciting! I have a weight loss goal that I broke into 3 parts. The 1st part is all the baby weight from Asher lost. The second is all the weight I held onto since I got pregnant with Hannah lost (10 pounds). And third, the weight I gained after I was married (20 pounds). I want to do this by next December so that we can get pregnant again. LOL We always wanted 4 kiddos and I am not getting any younger people. Let me remind all those who may think I'm nuts that I am 31 and a half now. I would like a life after my children grow up and not a nursing home so it's chop chop time. LOL

Speaking of kiddos, Asher was blessed today and it was beautiful. I'll post some pics of him after I download some onto this lovely new computer. Chow.
