Has it been 3 months?

I can't believe how I do this! So many things have happened since my last post in November! Thanksgiving, Christmas, new milestones for the kids, new decisions and resolutions for myself. Shame on me!

I will start by saying that January 1, 2010 I made a decision that I am going to get serious about losing this weight. It has been such a burdon since I had Dakota, but I have never been serious enough to do something about it until now. Since January 1st, I have lost about 10-12 lbs. I am very proud of myself because this is a huge accomplishment for me! I have been watching my calorie intake (NOT counting calories) and doing step aerobics for 30 minutes most nights on the Wii Fit. It's amazing what 30 minutes can do! I have had many compliments from people about just this small amound of weight lost, so I very much look forward to losing even more and getting MORE compliments!

Drew is standing alone! He has taken a few steps on his own, but is not walking alone yet. He is 9 months old now. I noticed the other day that he has 6 teeth! I had no idea! No wonder he has been biting everything and everyone in sight! 4 up top and 2 on bottom! He is SO hyper all the time! He is just everywhere! Definitely the most active of my three boys, even though Dillon was a handful himself!

Dillon has finally started wanting to learn his letters. He can write his name very well, and pretty much anything else I show him first. He is very independent though, so he always wants to do it "all my bad self". He is very excited that he will be playing rag ball this year! It is going to be so much fun to see him and his little friends out there on the baseball field learning how to play baseball! I can't wait!

Dakota had a very difficult winter. He had strep throat three times and had to have his tonsils out in December. He missed a lot of school, but has been much better since he got his tonsils out. His piano teacher had some health problems, so she had to quit teaching, but recommended a new teacher too. Dakota was apprehensive about getting a new teacher, so we decided to take a little while off. He is so busy anyway. I don't want him to have too much on him, even though I want him to be a well balanced person. He is so talented and so special already.

Shea has just absolutely outdone himself. He isn't much of a gift giver, unless it is something practical that he knows you can use. For Valentine's Day, he bought me a Pandora Bracelet with 3 D charms, a March, April and May birthstone charm, a Bible, and an elephant. I can't wait for the next special occasion to see what he'll get next. I am so blessed to have a husband who is my best friend. I can share my deepest darkest thoughts and secrets with him and know that he will stand by me and love me unconditionally. Not many people have that relationship with their husband or wife. This year will make 9 years that we have been married, and our relationship has only gotten better with every year. God is good and blesses those who include him in their marriage and lives.
