Saying goodbye to SparkPeople
Wednesday, September 19, 2012      7 comments

I'm trying not to make any rash decisions, but this is something I have been thinking about for months, and so I believe I may finally bite the bullet and leave SparkPeople soon. Why? Well, it's pretty simple, and also kind of complicated. ... Read more

First, I'll start with Joy. She is now 15 months, just over 20 pounds, and 30 inches tall. She's still wearing some clothing under size 12 months, but I have purchased her some size 12 month clothing (which is at least a little bit too big). She... Read more

I just realized I never added the pictures we had taken of Joy (and the family). Here you go. ... Read more
Spark Friends?
Saturday, April 21, 2012      3 comments

I found myself looking at my SparkPeople friends, and I realized I don't know who a lot of people on that list are. Others are people I used to communicate with a lot. They are no longer active on SparkPeople. And ever since I had Joy, I admit I... Read more
What a beautiful day!

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary today by going out to the movies and a lunch (he took the day off work) while my aunt watched Joy for us. Finances are a little tight these days, so this was a splurge for us. We planned on going... Read more
Day #1 at the gym
Friday, March 02, 2012      8 comments

I joined a gym last Saturday while a promotion was going on (even though I was still sick). I will average under $13 a month for the next 18 months, and I will pay $10 a month for Joy to be in day care at the gym. Awesome! So not only do I get t... Read more
More about Joy and what's new around here
Monday, February 06, 2012      8 comments

Joy started walking on Christmas Eve. It's kind of exciting, but I wish she would've waited until she was like 15 months or something. She enjoyed her first Christmas and loved meeting Santa Claus. She has enjoyed her various play dates too. ... Read more
A little introspection... and Joy
Friday, December 09, 2011      6 comments

I haven't forgotten that I want to lose weight and that I need to lose weight. I've just become overwhelmed with the mundane and been out of balance. I know I need to get my balance back, but I am currently without much motivation. However... Read more
Joy's Halloween costume
Saturday, October 29, 2011      6 comments

Every year for Halloween my church has a trunk-or-treat event that we are welcome and encouraged to invite friends and neighbors to. Last night was the event, and we took Joy dressed up in her sea otter Halloween costume. I didn't get any pictur... Read more
What's been going on and a recent picture of Joy
Monday, October 10, 2011      7 comments

I realize it has been a while since I posted a picture of Joy. She's now 7 1/2 months old. She's crawling and has even learned to crawl up stairs. I am hoping to get a part time job to help with some expenses my husband's job doesn't/won't cover... Read more
Urgent-- I need your help!
Tuesday, September 06, 2011      7 comments

I have terrible back pain. I went through back labor, and ever since then, I seriously haven't had a good night's sleep. My bed, a who-knows-how-old hand-me-down, is ridiculously uncomfortable. But because of my medical bills from my surgery and... Read more
Joy's mohawk
Tuesday, August 16, 2011      6 comments

Joy has longer hair on the top in the middle. After seeing a picture of her, one of my sisters asked me what was up with her hair. Honestly, I don't really know what to do with it. It's so fine and thin and short in most places that I don't know... Read more
Sorry for a long overdue update
Tuesday, August 09, 2011      8 comments

Sorry I haven't been very active on here lately. I've been checking in daily and reading my emails, but that's about it. I've been super busy and stressed. Breastfeeding is making me feel hungry all the time. However, I have decided to try to qu... Read more
Another picture of Joy

She squirms around a lot while in her Bumbo, but she does seem to enjoy it when she's sitting in it while in her Pack 'n Play. I think she likes it when she's more eye level with us. ... Read more
