Back to the Gym

OK - I know it is only Tuesday - but I have been to the gym BOTH mornings of this week and plan on going the rest of the week as well! My mom has been going to the gym and always says, "Meet me there!" It has been hard with Shawn going early to school but that is over with!! YEAH. So, I am SLOWLY getting back in to my routine at Gold's. Let me tell you - I AM SO SORE - It's pathetic. I went to do crunches again this morning and my muscles were so tight! My sister-in-law pointed out that I did just have a c-section so I feel a little better (considering they cut through my stomach and all that hard muscle which was there before got chopped in half and has to grow back together! I think it might take longer than 8 weeks) :) Nice excuse, right!!

It feels so good to do physical activity again - I love it!! Many of you may not know - but before I met Shawn (not that I am blaming him) I was an avid gym enthusiast! I usually went 5 days a week and was the most toned and skinniest I have ever been!! Ask my grandma - I lived with her during that phase of my life! I love the power pump class and lifting weights - I look forward to enjoying it for at least 6 more weeks while we are here.

The best of it all - I came home this morning from the gym and to my amazement and utter surprise Shawn had vacuumed, mopped the kitchen floor, loaded and started the dishwasher AND given Andie a bath! It was great!! Thanks Shawn - sure love ya and glad you are home with us for a few weeks!

OK - enough for now. :)

Crazy Week!!

It has been a CRAZY week!! Shawn has been up at 6am every morning this week and not returning home till 9pm or later (including today!) He is making the final revisions to turn in his thesis for his defense on July 2nd. He also had his final Master's Exam this morning from 8-12. So he has been very busy. We can't wait for him to be done!!

Meanwhile - I have been stuck at home with these 2 crazy cute girls all week! Thanks to my mom for picking us up a few days to hang out with her (or else I would have gone insane!) Who knows what I am going to do in Georgia without her!! So here are a few pictures from our week! Enjoy!
Andie and Ali.
Andie is wearing her swim hat from last year! Goofy girl wears it all day - it is funny.

David and Liz came over swimming! It was lots of fun - this time David took a couple spills under the water - but he recovered well for the most part. below is a video of them playing! Sorry I am not the best at taking video. They have such a good time together!

David and Andie after swimming enjoying a movie and of course....FRUIT SNACKS!

Thursday I was done with the girls and tired of being home all week with them. Just as I thought about complaining Shawn walked in the door with a bag from See's Chocolates!! Dark Chocolate Molasses Chips - my favorite! Thanks honey - They helped get me through the rest of the week.
What's wrong with this picture?
Ali had an explosion and got the seat cover all "dirty". So it has been in the wash and is drying - which we are both sad. She misses her birdies and I miss being able to set her in there. She has had 3 poopy explosions today dirtying her clothes every time - Must be time to go up to Size 2 diapers.

Again, thanks to everyone who helped us have a great week and spending time with us. We will miss you all in 6 weeks when we move! Crazy how time flies!

Our Little Drew Buggy!!

I thought I would post some pictures of Andie and the fun things she does!!

Enjoying Lunch with her Crazy Hair!

Andie is not wearing a shirt because she wanted to feed herself applesauce! I was making cookies for our ward party so she got one of those as well! She was so excited!

Applesauce, String Cheese, M&M Cookie and Milk - what a great lunch!!
Oh well, she was entertained for a few hours!

Swimming in the kids pool! She had fun until she slipped and went under, TWICE! oops!

Climbing in and out of the pool - once again, too independent for help!

Andie put her jacket on and wanted to go see grandma - but she was in Idaho!

I wore Andie out and she feel asleep right in the middle of the floor in the living room! Don't you love her position!! Funny Girl! She woke up with a fever of 102.9 and didn't feel good the rest of the night - later we discovered an eye tooth came through! YEAH!

This is the life...Mom's Chair, a pack of fruit snacks and a movie!

Andie is very independent and won't let us brush her teeth - she has to do it!! Good thing uncle Steve is a dentist and can make sure she is doing a good job!

Andie loves to swing at the Park

Andie we sure love you and think you are the cutest girl ever!!

Talking Their Own Tune

OK - I am very biased, but I love Andie's secret language and I finally got it on camera. It is a little hard to hear, but if you listen closely you will experience the joys I have on a daily basis. You win a prize if you can interpret what she is saying.

Sorry, it is sideways (can't figure how to rotate it) but she is still cute!! Poor little girl had the hiccups, but she is starting to talk (well coo) and smile a lot more. Already 2 months old!! CRAZY
