-Davis got a wagon from his Grandma Sue for his 1st Birthday, I had honestly forgotten about it until Davis' friend Cayla showed up at the park riding in her new wagon.  We Jeff put it together Sunday for Davis.  Here are a few pictures of him enjoying it. 

-Last Thursday we had a pool party in what Jen calls "The Barror Aqautic Wonderland"  We invited Jen and Stella over for some sun, pool time and lunch.  It was a great success.  Even Maizy behaved, sort of.  I realized after looking at these pictures that my child is like Andre the Giant, look at how tall he is!!!  Did I mention he grew 2 inches in 3 months again, he is now 33".  I was 33" at 18 months.  It will be interesting to see how his tallness plays out over the years.  He could be much taller than Jeff or I and then again he could stop growing so quickly and level off.  I am 5'4" and Jeff is 5'9", so I'm not expecting a very tall son, but we totally could have one. Almost all of the my male cousins on my mom's side of the family are well over 6' tall and so are the ones on my dad's side of the family.  My husband's entire family is short as can be, the women are all 5' tall and even though my husband really doesn't know his father (that is another story that I will not post due to privacy), we do know his father is shorter than my husband.  So shortness runs in their family, tallness runs in mine. 

-I went to the gym yesterday for the first time in several months, I had been working out at home but it just wasn't cutting it.  I knew what had to be done, I had to suck it up and add kids club to my membership so I could take Davis with me.  It was great!!  I did a run/walk for 30 minutes and some lower body work, we were there about an hour.  The girls in the kids club said Davis cried once he realized I was gone, but assured me it was just a little whimper and after that he made some new friends.  When I went in to get him he cried because he did not want to leave, he was having fun.

-My mom and I went to Wal Mart last night. All I have to say is What Happens at Wal Mart stays at Wal Mart!!
-I am very serious about losing weight, before I had Davis I was very thin, when I met my husband I weighed a whopping 112 lbs., ha!!!  ha!! and ha!!  I know that I will NEVER be 112 lbs. again, but Davis is now 15 months old and I'm still carrying around an amount of baby weight that I do not like, I could have had this off by now and I don't.  I'm not lazy I just don't take enough time for myself to really focus on getting back in shape, I do eat healthy, but I've got a bad sweet tooth that really doesn't help at all.  I've decided to allow myself a small sugary treat each day, I know I cannot just cut it out completely.  I also plan on getting to the gym at least 3 times per week, I can for sure swing 3 times per week.  I'm taking baby steps.  I don't want to set unreasonable goals for myself that I know I cannot obtain.  I can manage to eat one small sugary treat a day, I can manage the gym 3 times per week and I know I can lose 10 lbs. by my 32nd birthday in 2 months.  Anything else I can do in addition to that is a bonus.
- I also hate the new way blogger re-designed their picture upload system.

RE: Wagon. I see that coming to the zoo with Davis next time! is there a shade canopy for it? if not, go get one - otherwise you really couldn't use it for something like the zoo, not on a full sunny day at least.
