Happy Anniversary, honey!

Today is our 2 year wedding anniversary, and our 7 year anniversary of when we started dating. It's hard to believe it has been that long. It doesn't seem like its been 2 years since our wedding, and it certainly doesn't seem like it has been 7 since we started dating! Happy anniversary, baby!

We are planning on staying in a cabin next month for our anniversary get-away. I'm excited for that but am extremely nervous about being away from Lizzie for 2-3 days. Hopefully I can handle it!

Her 1st freckle!

Today I spotted the cutest little tiny baby freckle on my little girl. It is her very first freckle! Isn't it just the cutest little freckle you've ever seen??

She's on the move!

As of July 10, my little girl was still army crawling wherever she needed to go. Sure, she could only go sideways and backwards, but she made it work. Then on July 11th, she took a couple little crawly steps. Exciting, right?! Within days, my little baby girl who isn't so much a little baby anymore is an expert crawler.

Here is a video of her the other day crawling to me. Pardon my appearance, I had just woken up.

Also, Elizabeth has learned to pull herself up into a standing position! I thought it was amazing when she started sitting up from laying down earlier this month. She has turned into a big girl right before my eyes this past week. Here is a video of the second time Lizzie pulled herself up. She looks so proud of herself! The beginning shows her pulling up - the rest of the video is of her trying to get the camera and then trying to eat a bird.

30 Day Shred

Well, I have started the 30 Day Shred over this month. I started it a couple months ago only to get to Day 9 and have to quit because of the surgery. But I got the go ahead from my doctor to start exercising again (although I'm still not allowed to ride a bike). In the 9 days I was able to complete the first time around, I lost 3 lbs. So here we go again! I am on Day #5 today. I won't be posting any measurements like some other brave women out there, but I will try to update for any pounds lost.

Reality Show Idea

I have a fantastic idea for a new reality show. There are shows that teach dogs to behave, shows that teach parents how to control their kids, some where people lose weight, switch spouses, and compete in singing and dancing competitions. There are shows where people eat bugs for money, compete for modeling gigs, and follow teenagers around while they lounge on a beach. I think its time for a reality show that can teach babies to sleep all night.

Seriously. Experts can go into a house and teach the baby to sleep through the night and teach the parents how to get the baby to sleep through the night. How great would this be?! They could use no-cry solutions, cry it out, Ferber, etc, depending on what the parents prefer or what the particular baby responds to better. They could call it, "So You Think You Can't Sleep" or "America's Next Top Sleeper." I, for one, would watch this show religiously.

And also, I volunteer to be featured on the first episode.
