What I Know Today

So, my original goal with bringing out the camera yesterday was to capture Jack's (a.k.a. "Bee")army crawl. Henry was just fascinated with the camera though, so that didn't really work as planned. Here's another clip... This was my first attempt. :)

Army Crawl

Here's a quick video of Jack's army crawl. He's been doing this for about a month now (maybe a little longer?), but has recently picked up speed. He's pulling himself up some, too. I have a video of that to share another day. Stay tuned!

You can also hear Henry in the backgroun on this. He is enthralled with the camera, but only wants to be on the back side of it so he can see what's going on in the little screen. :)

Pardon the Christmas music in the background. Henry has a National Geographic video of Santa telling him about all of the different animals at the North Pole, and he just loves it. The songs are all about the animals, but set to the tune of various carols. He loves his, "Santa wif ameals" (i.e. "Santa with animals") :o)

Halfway There

If you've been paying attention to my sidebar, you know that I've been participating in the Pound for Pound Challenge that was issued on The Biggest Loser. I pledged to lose 28 lbs during this season of the tv show, which ends around May 5th. As of yesterday, I'm down 15 lbs. I thought it would be fun to do a little comparison photo, so I had Darrin snap one of me last night.

I can totally see the difference in my face between these two pictures! I also am loving that more of my favorite clothes are starting to fit. As of today, I weigh one pound less than I did when I got married 9.5 years ago! Woot!

Although I am over halfway to my PFP goal, I still have quite a ways to go to my overall goal, but I'm trying to focus on one step at a time and stay realistic about everything. Big thanks to everyone who has encouraged me this far! Keep it up! You have no idea how much your words mean to me.

Your crib or mine?

The boys are starting to interact more, and Henry is saying "NO!" a lot less when he is placed next to his brother. lol! He never has really shunned Jack per se, but has always enjoyed having a little distance between them. After nap time, I usually grab Henry first and then he runs into Jack's room yelling, "Bee! Ha-woah Bee!" (say it outloud, you'll get it.) For whatever reason I decided to get Jack first this particular day, and set him in the crib with Henry while I put some clothes away and cleaned up in Henry's room. They played nice for a good 10-15 mins before it got old. Hey, I'll take what I can get!

And yes, before you ask, my almost three year old is still in a crib. Could he be in a toddler/regular bed? Sure. Will he be in one by his birthday? Maybe. Right now he's content in the crib, and I'm happy as long as he is. ;o)
