{ What Kids Wore Wednesday }

A couple of weeks ago Naomi turned 6 months old, and as promised, here are her 6 month pictures! Time is flying with her! She is quite mobile now, getting into everything she can when she has tummy time. She has been teething for a few months now, but no teeth yet! She is such a smiley little girl, and loves everybody!

Outfit: skirt- Zulilly, onesie- hand-me-down, hair band - hand-me-down. 
(No worries, I was watching her close with that balloon!

{ Getting Fit and Healthy - Update }

Yesterday was the end of my 13 week Weight Loss Challenge. I was doing it with 5 other ladies. I am happy to report that I lost about 10 lb! Yay! I am super excited about that! I have lost all my baby weight from my pregnancy with Naomi, and working on my pregnancy weight from Samuel (or sweets weight, not sure!) I have been incorporating the eating plan from Trim Healthy Mama with good results. I am not completely doing their plan, although I think it is awesome! Their Facebook group has a really great support system. I have been making my own yogurt lately, which enables me to have a healthy snack or breakfast. I had an amazing bowl of plain yogurt, with chopped up fresh peaches, and whole fresh blackberries, vanilla, and sweetened with Nunaturals stevia. It was so yummy and summery! Try it sometimes! I plan to keep on this journey of becoming fit and healthy. Can't wait to give you more updates!

Starting weight: 167.5 lb.
Weight yesterday: 156.8 lb.
Goal weight: 130 lb. and firm and toned

{ Our Fourth of July! }

We had a really great Fourth of July in Michigan. We went to a fun parade, and for the record, if you have a float, freeze-pops are awesome to give out on hot summer days! We had lots of hot dogs and steak, Samuel  played in the balls and on an inflatable for the first time at a small-town Carnival, and we watched some beautiful fireworks on the sand that night with family. Such a wonderful Independence Day!  Here are some pictures!
