Missing 1 tooth. Brenten had his first loose tooth. I think he was nervous to tell me about it because by the time he said anything it was barely hanging on. He did NOT want us pulling it out so I was trying to be good even though I knew it would come out so easily. The other night he was wiggling it and it fell out. He was so excited. He ran in to show me then threw it in the garbage without thinking. When he realized what he had done he started digging through the garbage to find it "or else the tooth fairy wouldn't come". That night I took him his tooth in a ziplock to put under his pillow. He didn't say anything for a second. Then he looked at me and said "it's coming in my room" I think he was a little creeped out that a fairy was going to be in his room while he slept. He got over it quickly when he found his dollar. Oh I love this boy. and I think he is pretty cute with one tooth missing.

Cait at 9 months

Cait went in for her 9 months well check the other day. She is 20lbs and really tall. I don't remember but she is in the 51% in weight and 91st in height. She was given the go ahead to turn her car seat around. I love when they first get to face forward. They get so excited. She has 6 teeth and will bite anything or anyone. (watch out). She is very smiley but doesn't laugh. She has a very low chuckle. Very cute but doesn't seem like it would come from her. She loves the boys. And when they go outside she likes to sit by the window and watch them. I think the boys like it too because they will come up to the window and talk to her. She pulled herself up to standing today for the first time. She has crawled maybe two crawls. She has really mastered the butt scoot. My kids have never really done that before. And she can get to a sitting position on her own. She loves loves food. Food of any kind. Really she is a pretty easy baby and has a great temperament. I can't wait to see what she learns next month.

I have a 6 year old

I know I am plenty old to have a 6 year old but I really can't believe this much time has passed. He is my sweet boy. We have so much fun. The top pick if him building stuff with his new birthday presents. He is so good at legos, knex and any other toy where he can build or put things together. Sometimes he has to show me how it is done. And if it is a little hard Christian will show him once and then he will have it down. The bottom one is of the cake I made this year. My kitchen was so warm the frosting was melting a little but thats okay. Brenten loved it.

Getting in Shape

A few people are asking what I am doing to lose my baby weight. Well it sounds simple. I actually have to work pretty hard at it. I count my calories and I working out is a total priority in my life right now. I still have a ways to go to get where I want to be but that all takes time.

I am actually starting to do some training on the side. I graduated in Athletic Training at BYU and have worked with a variety of people; from athletes to older people to people with injuries. If anyone is interested, I am coming into peoples homes and helping them with their fitness goals. The plus is I do this in their homes and use as little or as much equipment as they have.

Weight Goals

So a week before Cait turned 9 months I reached my pre-Cait weight. I was so excited. It usually takes me over a year. I was excited but now I am just motivated. I have another 10 to get to my pre-Landon weight. So I have a lot of work to do. Wish me luck. Please feel free to check up on me so that I can continue to feel motivated.
