Two months old

My baby is 2 months old. Where has the time gone? I blinked and two months passed...just like that. Ryan has changed so much in these past 9 weeks.  He can stand up when I hold his hands for a short period of time. He can smile and even laughs on occasion. He loves belly time and focuses on his surroundings and is so aware.  He is such a good baby. I feel Steve and I were blessed with a practically perfect infant. We can read his cries for the most part, but he doesn't really cry a whole lot.

At his last Dr's appointment he weighted 11 lbs 14 oz and was 23" tall. Pretty close to average for his age...maybe on the smaller end of average...but as long as he's healthy I don't care!

We take Ryan everywhere. We have since he was born. No stopping us from doing things because we have a baby in tow. He is involved in all that we do and we wouldn't have it any other way. He even goes to the local brewery with us once a week. :)  He will be our future brew master for sure.

I'm looking forward to the upcoming months and for him to grow and be happy. 

Our baby is a fan of many sports teams.

Here he is rooting for the Yankees to make his daddy proud

Now he's rooting for the Padres to make his mommy and Poppy happy!

And finally he's also an Angels fan to honor his grandma and grandpa Hays. :)

Lesley's plan for weightloss

As soon as I stopped nursing, the weight stopped dropping...and since I didn't alter my intake (you can eat slightly more when nursing and still lose weight) it actually starting coming back on. I don't weigh myself (scale is broken/off anyway) unless I go to a doctor and they do it. I just go off of how my clothes fit and I can't afford a whole new wardrobe to fit my new size. :)

Soooooo......I'm doing the slim-fast thing (technically the Kirkland brand weight loss shake thing...but who's really gonna know?) during the week and I get freebies on the weekends.'s proven to be successful for me in the past. I don't mind the taste of the drinks at all. In fact, I have to limit how much my son drinks or else I will go broke buying them. He loves them. I actually don't mind him drinking them because he doesn't eat much anyway and they are a meal replacement so I know he's getting nutrients that way.

I wonder if these drinks turn me into her?? 

I highly doubt this bikini clad model drinks these to get to where she is now..And I'm not realistically going for that look anyway. I like food way too much.

Overly Insecure? Untrusting? Or something else...

Maybe this is something some people think should be left for a private conversation, others, maybe not. I am who I am and I vent how I vent and share my views, concerns and joys the way that I do. I've never kept it a secret and as I've been told "be okay with it"

Bachelor parties...Bachelorette Parties. I have stated my views before. I am not okay with what seems to be the "norm" behind them. Drunkenness and strippers.  You are out celebrating with 20 of your 'closest friends' viewing naked dancers inches from your face (touching? maybe that'll cost you more - I don't even want to go there). The point of this celebratory ritual?  A rite of passage for the spouse to be. A final night to get all their ya-ya's out before they're tied down to the ol' ball and chain.

My view on this.

If you have ya-ya's - get them out before you get into a relationship. Respect your girl or guy and have a night out at Dave N Busters or Go-Kart racing...or something else that doesn't involve naked people who aren't your spouse to be.

It's about LOVE and RESPECT. I don't expect everyone to share my views...but the thought of my guy planning and/or attending one of the debacles makes me sick to my stomach. Do I trust my guy? Sure. Do I think he's planning on cheating on me? Nope. Do I like the thought of him getting turned on by some naked lady doing only God-knows-what in front of him, on his lap or whatever else they do? NOT-ONE-LITTLE-BIT

It is not okay. Purposely attending an event knowing you're going to be lusting after someone partially or fully unclothed is not okay. Making a night out of this is not okay with me. I don't see how it is okay with anyone, really. A night out, sure. A fun wholesome night out with friends is always a good time.

You are free to call me insecure. I am. I believe most people are to some degree.
You are free to call me un-trusing. I am that as well. I don't trust what 's going on inside someone's head who feels the need to view naked people dancing inches from their face. It's anything but innocent. I think my body is the only one he should be lusting for.  I won't ever apologize for that.
