Happy Halloween!!!

Happy Halloween (early) we got matt a tigger costume since he is such a tigger but i will post those pictures later. He loves his costume and gets excited everytime he sees it even though i'm pretty sure he has no idea what it is. its orange and it's soft so he loves it we had to eventually hide it from him so he wont get it dirty before halloween he also loves his pumpkin bucket it also is orange and he can carry it around(are you seeing a theme yet?) he loves orange things and soft things. So anyway here are some pictures from the other night in his halloween pj's

2. When you were pregnant did you know what you were having?

Yes, are you kidding if I could have found out sooner I would have:)

5. Did you have morning sickness?

well I felt sick for a couple of months but only got sick twice

6. What did you crave?

anything spicy, especially salsa and all peppers(i had really bad heart burn in that last half of the pregnancy:( )

7. How old were you when you became a mom?


8. How long were you in Labor?

I guess technically 18 hours but they sent me home the first time because i was not dialated enough and i came back 6 hours later when my water broke so total time in the hospital was 12 hours.

9. How much did your child weight?


10. What is your favorite thing about being a mom?

when he wakes up and just smiles at me:) plus all the funny little noises he makes and how excited he gets when he discovers something new or does something that we praise him for:)

11. What is your least favorite thing?

poopie diapers and teething!!

12. Do you want more kids?

yes eventually but i'm in no rush right now anyway:)

13. How many times have you been peed on?

napping or working out sometimes talking on the phone to my mom or on the internet(but usually napping)

dates and doing stuff for me (pampering)or just playing

not really anything, i got really lucky with this one (however now that he's teething he isn't sleeping through the night always anymore)

17. If I could do it over, i'd do this differently...

what a Be"dae"

So for those of you who don't know what a bedae is (or however you spell that) it is next to the toilet and shoots water up when you sit on it to help clean you off after you use the toilet. they are very popular in Europe so they have them all over here. Matt learned how to turn it on the other day when i was in the shower and thinks it is the funnest thing to play with:) so i videoed it for you all:)

Matthew learned how to walk!! he is walking much better now and obviously during the day when he isn't tired he doesn't cry everytime he walks either. We have tried getting a better video but he is such a ham and likes to pose for the camera or try to get it so this is the best we can do for now.

Beach and Sunsets

We went to the beach again the other night and the sunset was gorgeous! though we didnt stay long because matt was done and didnt want to be in the water or the sand.

Biggest Loser

So i have been in Puerto Rico since the middle of September and will be gone for several months and I decided when I came home I was going to be a new person. Thinner, stronger, and more domestic. I live with Amy who is a personal trainer and she has been helping me. So far I have cooked every meal except for 3 times and I have started working out. We don't have cars here this time so that does help a little on the weight loss because I have to walk everywhere, but since I've been here I have lost 9 lbs!!! so yea for me I thought since this is my own blog I could toot my own horn:) and I am proud of myself for sticking with it I only have 36 more lbs to go for my goal weight and am well on my way to a healthier me:)

Puerto Rico

We arrived in Puerto Rico on Friday and the very next day we were at the beach(no surprise there) Matt really liked the sand on the beach but is a little weary about the water still, he loves swimming but the ocean is a little different than a pool.

Bath Time

Matt loves to take baths! The problem is he loves to stand up in the tub and that, well we all know does not end up happy in the end:)

Hilton Head Island

Josh always claims that Hilton Head is his second home...
Well matt can officially say that. We have lived in Hilton Head half of Matt's life so far.

Cutie "Pie"

Cookies and Cake. I think maybe he has a little Adams blood in him:) he does as you can see like to hold the food himself. He loves to eat whatever we are eating and even more so now that he has 4 teeth.
