L is now 3 months old...At our most recent appointment he was put in the 25th percentile...Weighed 12 lbs. & was 23 inches long. Not only that but he rolled over when the pediatrician asked "Has he rolled over yet?", well after we said "No" is when he rolled over because he's a show off.

K is now 10 and in the 50th percentile for height...received two shots....and will be seen again next September when she turns 11.

Our pediatrician offered us some great advice for meals.

1. Serve everyone from the kitchen and bring the plates to the table.
2. You can have seconds but NOT UNTIL everyone at the table has finished eating first. This will (a) make you eat slower & (b) may tell your brain you are full.
3. No food allowed on the table.

Love our Pediatrician. Just saying...

Three Months...

As we continue our adventures in L's first year...Here are some pics from tonight before bed...Three Months old today!

I love to entertain before bed and play a bit. I decided to not stay still for any pictures.

Look I'm getting better at sitting up...

That is until L decides it's a good idea to start eating his hands...

but what he really prefers is his stuffed monkeys hand. Notice the monkey is as big as him lol

3:36AM &...

a baby stirs, you think he is up, make a bottle, and BAM he's back asleep again & you're up. Oh joy! Should I even try and go back to bed? I think I will.

Eating Right but Not Torture...

I began my eating adventures again today which have helped me in the past. I'm posting these & sticking to them. Holding myself accountable and looking forward to the rewards. Time to take care of what the baby added onto me.


  • No eating after dinner. Drink water if hungry.
  • Desert other than fruit for special occasions only (ie. birthdays, weddings, etc.)
  • 1 healthy snack per day

  • Must have a serving of protein & fruit or veggie with every meal. Protein and fruit/veggie must be eaten first.
  • Only up to 2 diet cokes per day. Drink water otherwise.
  • GF - No wheat (only buy gf going forward as of 9.2.2010)

  • Thanksgiving, Halloween, etc. (Holidays) are excluded as long as exercised at least 5 days in a row prior. 1 mile plus walking/jogging
  • Ice Cream/Frozen Yogurt only at outside location. None at home.
  • Treat at movie only if walked/jogged at least 1 mile that day.

  • Walk or Jog at least 1 mile per day.
  • Walk to locations within 1 mile of my home if it permits (example baby).
  • Park far from entrance of place going when safe.

  • Each week goal met $5.00 toward something I want.
  • Relax on Sundays, don't over do it.
  • 1 item of clothing for every 10 lbs. lost.
These don't seem hard and I'm looking forward to holding myself accountable to feeling good health wise and making healthy choices. Game on!
