Title Block

I have blog block and apparently title Block.

I am trying to think of what I can write about and my brain just keeps going blank.

I could write about how blissfully happy I am. How I am living what I dreamed about since girlhood. How I always wanted to be a stay at home mom. How my husband works hard so I can live my dream. But that would probably be nauseating and way to sugar sweet for you.

I could talk about how Sophia has reached so many big and small landmarks all within 2 weeks. While Chris was on vacation she has managed to learn how to sit from a laying position, crawl, pull up onto furniture and drink properly from a sippy cup. I always had to help her tip her sippy cup back and hold it for her. She would get a taste of water or milk and spit it back out. Suddenly she gets it!! She holds and tilts the cup back and takes big drinks. This makes me so happy. I worried so much that Sophia was behind on all the "landmarks". I hated that I compared her to other babies. She is teaching me to relax and go with the flow. She is a laid back girl just like her daddy.

I could talk about how I have less blogging time. Usually while Sophia naps in the morning I blog. Now after ummm 10 months I am getting my act together and exercising while she naps. I put in a DVD of weights or cardio and attempt to workout. I have no more excuses. She is 10 months old and I can not blame baby weight anymore!! I have failed my purse goal. Such is life. Onward and upward!! My hilarious blog friend Jen at Daily Mish Mash who cracks me up on a daily basis is having a challenge called 'Looking Fine by 2009'. We are going to have a group challenge and help each other out to stay motivated and look fine by 2009! Check her blog out she is awesome and we share a love of Ryan Gosling and James McAvoy how can you not like her!

So I guess I didn't have bloggers block after all. In fact that is a lot of words up there so I hope I didn't bore you to death. Just in case I did I will throw in some pics of guess who?

Yes, I have a thing for close ups. These were all taken on our road trip to Kimberley.

Let's get it out of the way....awwww. Those pics are beyond adorable. I love closeups (of course not of me, but babies-bring it on).

Thanks for doing the challenge with me. I am really excited to have so much support.

Way to go on all the exercising. You'll have to let me know if you find a dvd that doesn't feel too much like torture.

Keep it up and don't forget to check back on Monday with your progress. Either just leave me a comment or do a post. Whatever you feel more comfortable with.

honey it's me again...

the bag is totally not from target!! surprise, surprise!! it's from


it is one of the amy bulter prints - she has a ton :)

Jen said...

Of course I saw the t-shirt thing on Just Jared. At first I was freaking out because I thought it was HIS ACTUAL WORN T-SHIRT!!! But it isn't. Boooooo. Then again, if it was his shirt and I didn't end up winning it, I would be so incredibly depressed that I wouldn't be able to get out of bed for days. So, it is probably best that it isn't.

Maybe I should start exercising during naptime too. It is just so hard to stay motivated.

Your baby girl is looking super cute!

Amazing how when you start a post, things finally come together and you could write forever. Those pictures are darling- I love the hats. Happy POW!
