I got myself a personal trainer for my birthday. We are getting more then we thought back from the IRS, so I decided to do this. I have been wanting to for a long time. Two of my friends from church were going and we got a group rate. So, we go Tuesdays and Thursdays for 30 minutes. We will do this for nine weeks, and then we can do another session if we want. It is going to be really good, but I can tell that I'll be sore tomorrow. Running is going well, but I haven't been as consistent as I'd like. I am supposed to go Mon, Tues, Wed and Friday. I have missed at least one day each week because of sick kiddos. But hopefully, I can stay on track from now on.

The kids are doing well. School is coming along. Unfortunately, I am having trouble finding a routine, but we're getting there. Jordan will be getting the first phase of orthodontics this month. I think they start with expanders. Anyway, that should be fun. He is so excited about it, but I think that's because he has no idea what he's in for ;)

Campbell is cutting her first tooth finally! She has been soooo fussy today. She still hates baby food. I think it's the texture. Not sure what to do about that. She just started sitting up, which was later than the other babies. I think, because I am busier, I don't have as much time to work with her like I did the others. I am trying to work this "practice time" into our daily schedule.

Well, that about covers it for us. Hope everyone is doing well. I haven't taken any pictures the last couple of weeks. Maybe I'll get some this week.

Good for you, girl. I think it's wonderful that you are doing something so great for yourself.

I have been meeting Jenni D. at the Y almost every day for the last month and I feel GREAT. I don't look that different yet, but I can feel the changes physically and emotionally. We've been doing a combination of Step and Bodysculpting.

We have this one instructor who collects all our nursery tags when we come to class. She says as long as our children are still literally "hanging on us" we can't completely focus on ourselves. She has really been stressing the mental aspects of getting healthy and the importance for us as women (and especially moms) to put ourselves and our health first.

I am very proud of you!!

I am proud of you too! I am so glad that you got a trainer. That is something I have always wanted to do as well. I am having trouble finding time to be able to go for a walk lately. Its so cold and dark by 8 when Mylie goes to bed that I dont want to go outside!

Cam will do things in her own time. She is just bearly past the "traditional". I was worried about Mylie not being able to go from her tummy to sitting up. The doctor even asked if she was doing this. It was like Mylie heard us, because that night she started doing it. It hasnt stopped since. Now she is pulling up and walking while holding on to things. All this in a matter of days!

It was great to see you as well on Sunday.

Are there any definite plans for Sunday?
