I LOVE...


Now that Ella is smiling, giggling and responding to others more I am really starting to see a little bond forming between the two of these little girlies. I know it kinda sounds funny that a little 9 week old baby and a 2 year old girl can share a bond, but the way that Ella looks at Sophie with her big gummy smile could melt my heart. If Ella makes a peep Sophie jumps up and runs to her rescue with a soother in hand. She always tries to make her smile and is so proud of herself when she does. It really doesn't take much to get Ella to smile but we won't tell Sophie that. Anyway yesterday morning Sophie wanted to "watch toons with Ella". They layed there for a good 20 minutes cuddling. I looked over and they were holding hands and Sophie said, "Mommy look she is holding my hand so adorable!" Adorable is Sophie's latest favoritest word. She says it about everything. We had red wraps (sundried tomato) and she said "Oh those are adorable mommy!"




ALSO... I love "The biggest loser" and love Bob even more! I just think he is so great and I love how supportive he is to the contestants. Does anyone watch?? I really want Ron to win personally. Anyway I bought this DVD a few weeks ago and love it. It is a 6-8 week bootcamp that starts off with 30 minute workouts and moves up to 1 hour after 2 weeks. It's a really good workout and I love it. I have been going to weight watchers meetings for the last 6 weeks to lose the baby weight and have lost 13 pounds- yay! i figure 2ish pounds a week is a healthy amount. Weight watchers is the easiest thing for me to stick to. I know that I am paying to go to the meetings and I will be really ticked if I get on that scale and haven't lost anything that week. I have lost all the baby Ella weight but I didn't lose all of the baby sophie weight before I got pregnant with Ella. Pathetic, I know. Now hopefully if I add exercising I can tone up and lose some more.


And one more really weird thing. I have always been kind of a wuss when it came to spicy. I liked a good hot wing now and then but I hardly ever used hot sauce on anything. Since having Ella I have been putting hot sauce on absolutely everything. It is so weird. I drench my wraps, salads, sandwiches, eggs.. everything in it. I even found myself dipping my carrots in it today. Is that normal?..... My hormones must be really outta wack.. luckily Ella doesn't get an upset tummy from it.

I love the biggest loser, Tara drives me crazy, I dont know what it is about her, but I think she whines too much or something! Good going to losing all the Ella weight in 9 weeks, that is GREAT! I didnt lose all the Scoty weight when I got preggers with Ry Ry either, and it has been SO HARD to lose it, but I am getting there, I swear, if you wait too long it just sticks to you or something....but a few changes and it will come off, right? You are so cute, and I love your girls, just love them. I wish Ry Ry had been a boy, so she could marry Ella....but maybe they can just be friends...

we are all obsessed with the biggest loser at this house! i love when they do the before and after and see just how much they have lost. I bought the biggest loser workout dvd's also, they were SO hard! i couldnt even get through like 5 mins of them, i was dying!!! That is awesome though you are doing weight watchers, i really do need to look into something that, my food obsession is really causing me to be super depressed every day when i get dressed, i have SO much to lose!

But i love your pictures, and i hope rylee starts being as loving with hailyn as sophie is with ella, its so cute!
