Time with my guy

My mom takes the boys to school at least once a week for me. It is a life saver, that’s one day that I don’t have to schlep the baby in and out of the car in the early hours of the day. Usually, if he’s sleeping I run around trying to get as many things done as possible and even sometimes when he’s awake I still run around. But I’ve decided to take some time with just him and to enjoy each minute of it. Its so hard to do when the floors need to be cleaned and the bathroom needs to be wiped down. April 319
But when I take the moment to just stare into his dark chocolate eyes I am reminded that this is my time with him, and this time will quickly fly by. Look at how big he is already. and when this posts these pictures will be 3 weeks old.

he is so sweet. so stinkin’ cute too. April 320
*and those jeans, my new [old] favorite, have a hole in the knee. i went and bought a patch. we’ll see how that goes.*
we are finally over illness. 10 days of it. yuck.
any ideas on losing baby weight??  anyone tried Jillian’s workouts with success?  how about tracy anderson’s dvd’s? bathing suit season will be here in a few weeks and i’m not really feeling bikini-worthy. ha. how about you?

he is so cute. as far a bikini ready, I'm never that way. I'm a tankini girl... can't give up my cookies to get bikini ready (lol). I will tell you that P90X is great and works, but it's a LOT of work

Jillian's workout makes me barf (literally). I'm all about Round and Proud!!

Oh man, I can sure see why you want to make the most of this time with him -- he is a doll!!

As for baby weight loss, I did old-fashioned running -- it worked pretty well!

He is so cute! I wish I would have been more aware and taken more time to just enjoy Boyd when he was a baby. I didn't really know what I was doing at the time, and looking back, I didn't cherish the moments enough. Enjoy every second! :)

I'm getting all sentimental as my baby gets ready to turn 6. What I wouldn't give to have those snuggle moments again. I don't think I did that enough. Good for you to enjoy that time.

Lovely photos! And you are right to enjoy him...precious moments that you can't get back and cleaning can wait till later! I too am sporting a pair of jeans with a hole in the knee..they are my favourite ones though!!

So glad you have some one on one time with him. He is so sweet. That is one of the hardest things about being a mommy, knowing when to leave the dirty floors and when to just be present with our kids!

I checked out the Jillian workout from the library at least 10 times, and never did it. I have heard good things about Tracy Anderson too. Either way, you look ready to rock the bikini! If you lived here, everyone wears one so you just jump in! It is amazing how self defeating we are in the US. I have been inspired by the women here and how comfortable they are with their bodies.

Now go kiss that baby!

Jillian Michaels - I hate/love that *&^%^*!!! NO joke!! B and I have done her two videos, and I can honestly say they kick your hinney, quite literally. They do work, and they are hard. Love the little guy. Before you know it, he will be about ready to enter the 2nd or 5th grade. Oy! Surviving here :-/
