Growing Up

McKay is one week away from turning 1. I can't believe how fast it went by. I am happy it did though. He is so much fun right now, and I know he will be grow to be more fun.. tougher as well, but still fun. I can't believe how much they change, so quickly.

I'm loving the fun personality McKay is developing. This picture shows it.

I'm loving staying home with him now. My Mom noticed that I seem to be a lot happier ever since I quit work. It's absolutley true. Even on those tough days, where you just want a break.. for even 5 minutes alone in the bathroom, it's still worth every second. I'm thankful things are working out for us right now. I am planning an Owl themed birthday party for McKay. I'm very excited, but have left it all to last minute, so I am not sure how it will all turn out. No matter how put together it is, It will still be fun to get together with family and close friends to celebrate the life of my boy.

I am feeling almost 100% back to normal since my surgery. I hardly even notice the pain anymore, and I am able to do most things. I can't wait until I can start really working out again. I was on such a good streak with weight loss. Luckily, I haven't gained in the past 8 weeks, but I haven't lost either. Im at a totaly of 37lbs now and loving it. I'm down 2 pants sizes and loving that too, and so glad I held on to a few pairs of pants that were too small. I just hate having to buy new clothes in the middle of losing weight.
