Happy Birthday My sweet girl

13 years ago today one of the most wonderful things happened to first daughter was born 5 weeks early. Coming into the world at 5 lb 5 oz and a tiny 19 inches.

She has always been a blessing, a good baby a great kid and now turning into a beautiful teenager.
Man did I say teenager??!!
She is driven to do well in school and I am so proud and know one day she will one day reach her goals.
She is a true gift from god.
Happy birthday sweetie

catch up

wow time goes by so fast...and I am so behind on my blog again.

I have to confess ..I am a bad mommy :)
My 4 year old has never, (well car trips and the odd pass out) gone to sleep without mommy laying with her or cuddling her. I have watched many of nanny 911 shows and the nanny to know this is not good parent behavior.
Being my last baby I know I held on tight to her babyhood but finally since her conception mommy is ready to let let grow up.

We started last night at 7:20. Daddy brushed teeth and read stories then to her room she went. I'm pretty sure she cried almost the whole time. Muttering and talking. The words"I am leaving and never, never ,never coming back " uttered from her lips. Man I need to monitor her t.v more...lmao

She went pee 6 times, said she needed water 4 and came out 5 times...but each time (except the pee requests, took her) I calmly walked her back to her room.

3 hours later....she fell asleep on her own!! woooooopeeeeeeeee....did I say wooopeeeee???!!!!

Tonight again, stories and she is in her room, no crying so far, but she is playing which I prob. shouldn't allow.....but she's in her room!

Well see how long it takes to get this habit planted.

It has been almost two months and I am still in the process of shrinking my self....19 lbs down.....32 in total.....from a 14 to a 9
I feel better fitting all my pre prego clothing(even though I want to be smaller then that)
Very very flabby...horrified at the aging skin attached to my soggy bod...but working on it. What I can fix by exercising I will the rest I will try other means. Funny how quick our body can change but how slow it is to see ourselves different. Still a work in progress but I am getting there :)
