Big Girl Bath, Singing and a Bib

So, it's a little misleading - I am not posting pictures of Avery in her big girl bath. I really don't know why, but I feel a little uncomfortable posting them on a public blog. If it was private, I wouldn't have a problem. But I've been getting alot of spam comments lately, and so, I don't know.

Anyway, she is sitting up now pretty good! So in her bath, we have her sitting up (with a firm hand, of course). Last night, we put all of the rubber duckies in with her and she looked like such a big girl, playing with those duckies. I think she is going to be like her sister - Sophia LOVES the bath and will play and play, if you let her. I remember when she had just turned 4, it was hard just to get her to wash her hair. Bath for her is not to get clean and get out, it's to play. Jordan, on the other hand, doesn't bring in his toys - he wants to get clean and get out. Kids are so funny, how different they are.
When she sits up, she just hits the water with her hand and splashes and splashes. When she lays down, she kicks and kicks and laughs. I can not WAIT to get her in that pool this summer....

On the way home, Avery pooped all over her outfit and had pooped all over the outfit that she wore to Ms Pams. She is a little pooping machine! So, I had her in her diaper till bathtime. I went to get some dinner and came home and Jason just put a bib on her. In my head I was thinking, why a bib? Aren't they meant to protest their clothes? But it was pretty adorable. Men are funny, aren't they?

Then, I had Jason take a picture of us right before bed. This is one of my favorite things to do with her, hold her and sing. And I don't want to forget it when she gets older. She just watches me - doesn't take her eyes off me for one second. I love that part of my day.

Well, once again, after everything I had to do last night, I didn't get to exercise. That would be three days in a row that I've not had time. Oh well, at least I am eating good. I try not to think about weight - my clothes are fitting better, so the weight will come off if I just keep on truckin.

Have a great Thursday, everyone!

Those are the cutest chunky thighs! And I completely understand not posting the bath pictures-I've gotten a lot of spam comments lately too. It gives me the creeps!

It was a very good day.

I love it when God smiles upon us. I mean, He smiles upon us all the time. But sometimes, it's like sunshine, and Christmas morning, and rainbows, and babies, and awesomeness. On steroids. And I know that those times are not always permanent, so I learn to really wrap myself in His goodness, to take it all in, be happy, and just sit back and wait to see what He is going to do in my life.
We have been struggling so long. I knew it was only a matter of time before things would be OK again. Where we would feel a little stability. Where we would take all of the things we learned while struggling and apply then when times are good.
We have alot of great things going on in our lives right now. Some really great things. Some amazing, mindblowing, off the grid kind of great things. I wish I could share more, but for right now, let's just say that we are incredibly blessed with some great opportunities God is putting in our lives.
I leave you with a gorgeous picture of our biggest blessin…

What is Your Skin Care Regimen?

Since turning 34 this year, I've been really trying to make sure I am taking care of my skin. I have been using Cover Girl Liquid Powder for years, but it always seemed to break my neck out. And full disclosure, my face cleaning routine consisted of using Avery's baby wipes (which actually do remove eye makeup surprisingly well). So, needless to say, my skin didn't always look its best. So, I received some gift cards for my birthday and I decided to go ahead and spring for some better products. First thing I did was get something designed to clean my face. I ordered the Olay ProX Microdermabrasion System. This system came with the battery-operated scrubber with both a brush and foam pad, plus every day face wash and microdermabrasion wash to be used twice a week. I have really loved using this system. The beauty is that you can really use any face wash you'd like. I will probably buy a pore-reducing wash after the tube they sent me is empty. This system really exfolia…

Our Trip to Orlando and Universal/Disney Travel Tips! (Long Post!!!)

Well, we just got back from our trip to Orlando! And I am tired and sore, but happy and so very glad we were able to do this as a family! Most of my Facebook peeps saw our pictures, but I wanted to share about our vacation and a little travel tips for those thinking of planning something similiar! 
Use a Travel Agent!
First and foremost - I booked my trip, basically last minute, through the amazing and wonderful Lana Kluge . Booking through a travel agent costs you, the consumer, NOTHING. It doesn't make your trip any more expensive and adds nothing to your end bill. What it does do is add a valuable service to your vacation, and that's exactly what Lana offered us. She has been to Disney multiple times and was able to answer all of my many questions up to, and while on, my vacation. Even with booking our resort, we were able to ask where our room was located, as the resort we stayed at (Art of Animation) is very large and I read people saying they had to walk a very long way …
