It's amazing how a bag of cheetos can change everything....

So my resolutions for this upcoming New Year are fairly similar to the usual, but I swear, this time I am sticking to it! At the top of my list is losing the baby weight leftover from nearly 2 years of being pregnant.I want to lose 30 lbs and hopefully that will re-energize me and solve a lot of the issue I have been having! My other biggie is to get this house organized and to purge a bunch of un-needed junk and to start living more frugally. I want to spend less and save more. That means meal planning, using a budget & sticking to it, pulling out the old Dave Ramsey envelope system, adding to an emergency fund.....

I was browsing the internet and came across this, it is actually pretty acurate and something I need to live by!

10 Ways To Reduce Stress:
Go to bed on time.
Say "No" to projects that won’t fit into your schedule (and don’t feel guilty about it!)
Live within your budget and don’t overuse your credit cards.
Be kind to un-kind people. They probably need it the most.
Every day, find time to be alone.
Do something for the "Kid" in you and have fun!
Get organized so that everything has it’s place.
Keep your mouth shut. This single tip can prevent a lot of stress and trouble...

3 months photos.... Olivia

12.3 lbs
Wearing Size 1 diapers and 0-3 month and 3 month clothing! She is finally sleeping through the night!!! She drinks about 5 oz of formula six times a day. She is smiling and cooing and seems to recognize faces and get excited when she sees people she knows!

Merry Christmas!

We had a wonderful Christmas! I actually had the day off this year! Meghan got her coveted shoes and Urban Outfitter purse. Savannah received her laptop....we won't see her out of her room much now! Peyton got legos and video games galore for his Wii and his new Nintendo DS! Bella loves her baby stroller and baby accessories the most and Olivia is just loving life! Today marks 3 months for her! I cannot believe how fast time is flying! Little girl is fast asleep now, so I will have to get her stats tomorrow....but here are some pictures!

Second Santa photo.... OMG! Bella looks even worse in this reproduction! (sorry, its a photo of a photo!!)

This is our first Santa photo from the other day...

11 weeks old!

Olivia is almost 11 weeks old and we are just getting around to her 2 month check up! LOL! What can I say, I have been E.X.H.A.U.S.T.E.D! I slept through our original appt 2 1/2 weeks ago and haven't had the energy to schedule one until today, since hubby got a job & is now back at work full time! But, we went today. Poor baby had 4 shots, but was a trooper! She weighed in at 11lbs 6oz and 22 inches long. Her head was 38cm around. Overall, about 50th percentile. Amazing! I have never had a baby below the 80th percentile...usually higher! LOL!

We saw Santa again today. I was at the mall the other day with Bella & Olivia, so we made an impromptu visit to him and took a $21 picture. They weren't in their Christmas outfits and Peyton was at school, but I did it anyways. Of course, Bella won't smile on command..... But it was still cute! She stayed on Santa's lap...what more could I ask for? We returned today, dressed in matching outfits, with Peyton in tow. Another picture....$24 today!? Bella again would not smile, and her hair looked like she had been in a wind storm. Oh well. I will have to post the pictures in a bit. I need to e-mail them to my computer. Or wait...maybe I can do the phone thing. Hmmm......

Oh, and several had askabout where I bought the cute Owl hats....if you have a FB account, it is "GBaby Boutique". She does amazing work & has great prices!
