This day started to early...

Is it to much to ask to be able to sleep in until at least 8:30?? I don't mind getting up feeding Devlin and then going back to sleep but actually getting up for the day before the sun is even out....crazy! lol Tally has not been letting me go back to sleep in the mornings, she's been waking up during or right after I feed Devlin which is anywhere between 5-7am..this morning 6:30. I could so go back to sleep right now!

Well I've decided it's about that time to start working on my weight/body shape. I can only use the "I just had a baby" excuse for so long. My diabetes appt is a week from today. I haven't totally restricted my carb intake just yet but the past few days I've cut back a little. Finding the time to exercise is my main problem right now. It's almost impossible to get time away from the kids until after 9pm and by that time I'm exhausted from the days events. I may just have to buckle down and do it anyway..no matter how tired I am. This body isn't going to tone up on it's own.

We are trying to cut back on our spending too. So I decided to start coupon cutting. I love the ALL YOU magazine, it has tons of coupons on stuff I actually use and easily pays for itself in savings from the them. Need to get with my mom on her Sunday paper and get the coupons that she won't use that I could. My friend Suzanne gave me the idea of putting them in a photo album and that's what I'm using at the moment. I'm thinking about making an envelope album to hold them in though after the holidays are over. So many crafty gifts to do this time of year and most of my Christmas gifts to friends and family are going to be homemade...baked, crafted or digitally made. So if anyone has any ideas for homemade gifts for women, I am all ears (well eyes)!

And now it's time for a few digital pages for you...

My baby is 2 months old.

Can't believe Devlin is already 2 months old. Seems like he was just born yesterday...ok not yesterday but definitely not 2 months ago! He's almost sleeping all night but unfortunately not sleeping in his crib at all. He's a mommas boy and loves sleeping next to me. He's sooo sweet, even right now when he's having a meltdown for no reason. lol He had his appt Friday and he's 11lbs 2ozs and 23" long now. Had 3 shots and the oral rotavirus vaccine, he took them like a champ with minimal crying.

My 10 yr high school reunion is this weekend, Friday will be our first kid free night since Devlin was born. Mom is pretty nervous about watching both and changing Devlin but I know she will do fine!

So here are a few pages I've done lately...

I've been busy...huh ;)

Sometimes I just want to strangle him....

I often wonder where my husband left his brain. Do they purposely not pay attention and make mistakes or are they just that retarded. Matt usually doesn't listen... like me calling and asking him to pick up butter, not stick margarine, butter...even stressed the NOT margarine yet he still brings margarine. This week he topped all his other bloopers by returning a Dora video to blockbuster, you wouldn't think he could mess this up but not my Matt. So I go to get movies together on Friday night after he took back the Dora video on Thursday night and I notice the movie he took back sitting with the others. So I said "I thought you took back this movie" he responds with "I did" ....ummm that's a negative Matt it's in my hands. "I know I took back a Dora video" Which he did but it was OURS, not a rental. These things drive me nuts! Luckily for him they still had our video but labeled it to be returned to Hollywood Video.

So do you have a goober hubby story?? Do tell so I know that I'm not alone!

and a few more pages...

Well the sniffles were gone but look like they may be back. Devlin had his 1 month appt 2 weeks ago and he was 10lbs 8ozs but I'm pretty sure he's over 11lbs now. He is starting to smile now but I have yet to get a picture of it but I've gotten tons of other cute ones. I also can't get Tally to hold him long enough to get a decent picture. She likes to hold him but when she is done....SHE'S DONE... time to start pushing him off her lap. lol Almost found that out while sitting in a chair but luckily I was paying close attention. Tally is good some days but most of them...not so much. I really could just fast forward over this 2 year old period of her life. Whining about everything! We are working on the potty training more now. She wore panties today and only had 1 accident, even did a #2 in the potty...I am so proud of her! Hopefully she will keep this up and be potty trained soon.

Things are going ok with me. I was given the ok on Monday to resume exercising and "other stuff" lol My diabetes doesn't look like it's leaving unfortunately. I won't know for sure if it's full diabetes or prediabetes until November 6th when I see the endocrinologist. So now starts the fun of getting my weight down. I lost all the weight I gained while pregnant but now is the time to get rid of those extra pounds I've had since Matt and I got married and maybe even more. Diabetes might help this since I have to cut those nice yummy carbs that I over indulge with.

So now a few pages.
