Happy Mothers Day

To all you moms out there. I can't believe that this year, it's my holiday too, so weird.

Salty and Nate came to visit us on Friday. It's so funny seeing Harper next to bigger babies. Nate is only 6 months old but looked like a elephant baby compared to my little peanut. I can't believe she will get that big.

I have been very lazy this week. Harper's erratic night sleeping the past few days has really thrown me for a loop. Tomorrow she is 3 weeks old, I can't believe it! I like to "start over" on Sunday's, so I will get back on the proverbial horse tomorrow with my eating and exercise. The scale has stopped moving down on it's own, so it looks like I am stuck with 25ish to lose. I hoped a few more lbs would magically fall off, but I've been fluctuating 2-3 lbs all week. I have been good about protein shakes for breakfast, but they won't do me much good if I'm not working out! It's very hard having such non productive days, I love being with Harper, but hate that feeling at the end of the day when I have done nothing. So, I am going to try and make a to do list and get at least one thing done on it a day. Nothing major, but things like walk the dogs or mop the kitchen. Harper sleeps plenty, so I have time to do things, but the day just disapears before you know it. Other new moms will know what I mean.

In exciting news, my brother in law Tim ran his first 5K today!!! I am so excited for him, he had a great time and really enjoyed it. I know he'll continue to improve in his running and I can't wait to do a race together. He's so pumped up about it, it reminds me of myself a few years back after I did my first race, it can be so addictive.

Here are some newer pic and a videos. Nothing very interesting, but Grandma wants videos as often as possible!

Happy first mother's day! And you'll be surprised, the weight will keep coming off on its own if you keep breast feeding.
