Day 18

Day 18: Something you miss.

I miss summers in New Hampshire. I miss driving up to my family's cottage on Lake Winnipesaukee and going on boat rides. It was so relaxing up there and the air was so clean. I have so many good memories at the campground and it's one of my favorite places to be.

Day 16

Day 16: Your opinion about your body and how comfortable you are with it.

I've been avoiding this one but I guess I have to get it over with at some point. I've never had huge issues with my body. I have a thin frame and have always been fairly thin to average. My main issue is my stomach. I have been cursed blessed with the family trait of a pot-belly. Even at my thinnest my belly always seems to stick out. As a gymnast in my younger years it wasn't really noticeable. When I stopped working out regularly I became really self-conscious about it. I have pictures that look like I'm pregnant when I'm not! My brother once edited a picture for me to flatten my belly because it was so bad! I know part of it is because I tend to slouch and then my belly sticks out even more. After having a baby it's just gotten worse. I know I need to work out more and I hope I can discipline myself to do that. We just got the Kinect for XBox and a dancing game that's really fun but also a good workout. My goal is to dance at least 3 times a week to start.

She's not a baby anymore

Is it just me or does 15 months sound so much older and more toddler-like than 12/13/14 months. This is the first "month-day" that makes me really feel like I don't have a baby anymore. More than ever my little R always knows just what she wants and is determined to get it. Just the other day I watched her open up the fridge(with just a tiny bit of help from mama), climb up on the flat bottom below the drawers, reach up to the top shelf, and grab her sippy cup. She also won't hesitate to stand up on her tiptoes to reach on the table or counter and grab some crackers that were left out. We're lucky if she gets more in her mouth than on the floor in that way but hey that's why we have dogs right? Right. This is probably one reason the furbabies love her so much. Little girl please slow down a little!
