Discovering the yoga love ..

I experienced a hard blow yesterday while stalking facebook pages during little mans nap. I read that one girl weighed in at 118 lbs when he LO isn't even a year old yet. I weigh ATLEAST 132. For everyone who don't know my pre weight.. it's sad. Within 5 minutes of reading that post, I was in my workout clothes and running top speed on the treadmill. I was gasping for air 15 minutes later and decided to call it a day. I found a DVD that someone gave to me and popped it in the player out of curiousity. Minutes later I found myself on the floor completely relaxed and in love with ... yoga. Hopefully I will be able to keep up with a daily routine of running and yoga during little mans nap time. I should tape a before and after picture on my fridge for motivation.

This morning is going to be nice. After I finish this up, I'm going to get myself and Jon-Erik ready to take a walk around town. As with every other 1 year old, he loves picking up leaves and acorns when we walk anywhere. He also enjoys pointing and yelling at every truck and bus that passes our way. I must say, it's very very cute. He has mastered every puzzle we have given to him (about 15 of them) and is about to start puzzles for 3yr and up.

I'm ready to let go..

It's truely amazing how much your life changes after you have a child. I love doing what I do. I love waking up every morning to Jon-Eriks beautiful smile. My life is so busy and chaotic at times I forget that I ever had "friends." I'm so tired of my "friends" telling me how busy they are and how much they are working and are trying to make time to see me. I'm ready to just change my number and delete my facebook. The only reason I have that thing anymore is to keep in touch with my family and stalk other people with babies. I see my mom and how she really has no friends. All she does after work and her meetings is sit at home on the computer. I don't want to end up like her. I know I have a few friends who I'm hoping will always be there. I just don't want to end up alone. It seems like the only time I'm truely happy is when I'm with Jon-Erik and Chris. Everytime I think about my friends I get sad and depressed in a way. I feel like the only way for me to have closure is to just erase all contact with them so that way I won't expect anything from them and will have no reason to be unhappy.

On another note, Jon-Erik is about to have his 2nd Thanksgiving in a week and I'm so excited! This year he will get to enjoy all the yummy food we eat!! I was hoping to have him potty trained by Christmas but that is on hiatus (sp?) until furthur notice. For some reason he refuses to sit on the potty now. He was doing so well for a few weeks. I heard it happens with some children so I can't say I'm suprised.

He is pretty good at using signs now. He's able to say about 10 words in sign right now. It's enough to make my life a lot easier! It's amazing all the whining and crying that gets elimated when they learn to sign! It will be even better when he can finally talk. So far he is able to say hott, done, eye, mommy, and daddy. We are getting there! He just isn't ready. I know I'm doing the best I can at teaching him.

Well, until next time. Here he is at the mall the other day with his best friend, Aiden ! =]
