Writing a new entry and reading some of the old ones. Logging these early memories for you to keep forever.

Today was our final day and final weigh in/measurements after 4 intense weeks working out and eating properly. Week 3 the scale was not working right so that’s what got crossed off.

Too bad I was weighed in with my shoes on the entire time!

James is becoming a pro at rolling every which way. He’s getting so big and so strong!

Sorry I’ve been MIA lately. I will update soon! I joined a rigorous workout program at the gym and have been working out 6x a week. I’m also back to work full time.

Proper update soon!

Cleaning and organizing.

Love the snuggles

It works great for me, and I like the bottles that you can pump and feed from the same bottle.

Give the insurance company a call. I needed to get a prescription from my doctor and fax that to my insurance company with my ID and my insurance card and it came to my door the next day. My doctor refused to do it since she said it’s considered fraud unless you are having latching problems. I talked to my pedi and she wrote the script and I had no problems.

Leave it to me to have a fountain of pee all over while trying to change a diaper. Just when I thought it was over he pees again when I uncover him!
