Monday memories..that are actually from Friday..but whatever..whatever.


Guess who's totally potty trained now?! Yay, Calix!! I don't even need to remind him to go sit on the potty! Accident free for a week! Woohoo!!!





he called this one his "puppy" teehee..cutie



And I call these why I love being a mom and also..I'm thankful that I spent my teenage years taking so many self portraits because it just prepared me for taking cute when no one else is around to take photos..photos. Without all of that practice, I wouldn't be able to get shots like these today:































And these little ones are also why I battle for #3..am still losing..but someday. Someday I will WIN! Oh, how I ache for a small one to be swimming around in my belly. :( BUT, roughly 40 more pounds (as per our agreement) and approval from my doctor til that can happen. It will happen. Oh yes it will. :)

Forty pounds! Then you'd be cutting into the beauty. Will he settle for five? Forty! That's like a third of you. And how much does he have to lose? I saw him trying to climb that tree, and now I'm worried about our national security. Anyway, I love you, and the kids are gorgeous.

Abby, you are seriously the BEST EVER at self-portraits. It's really unbelievable. So, so cute. I hope you frame one.

And yay for Calix! I guess he was just ready! How sweet it is!

#3 will happen, don't worry. And you'll be all the more ready for it.

That's sweet, dad..but 40 pounds will put me at about 10 pounds over what I was when I met Orion. I looked dang good in those days and kind of really miss it. I need to lose it not just for babies but for my health. Some people can handle extra weight..I can't. It's causing too many problems. I'm taking it 10 pounds at a time though..it doesn't feel so scary that way. Shoot, I remember when I was talking about needing to lose 60 pounds! 40 sounds like nothing compared to that!

Orion's got 5 pounds to lose. Seriously. I WISH it was only a stupid 5 pounds for me! And he's embarrassed that I put those pictures up, btw.

We're getting a new scale (one that WORKS!) in a couple of days here and then I'll know how much I need to lose but I won't be telling.

Go for it, you're being smart! Too many health risks!

I love the pictures that you take! I wish I could take good self portraits but I suck at it. What kind of camera do you have?

Good luck on the baby stuff, I'm anxious to have one too.

Cara, I use a Nikon D60 and I'm nowhere near good at using it yet..still learning..still learning!
