The Start of Something Good

So my hubby and I came to a consensus that we needed to eat healthier and loose weight. Together we knew that we could encourage each other to eat the right things and exercise. Well we decided to try some Weight Watchers. Oh my this has been the best thing we have ever done. I have found an amazing website that has a tone of WW recipes! I have a few of the recipes so far and they have been delicious but so healthy! I love fixing all this new stuff it makes me feel like a chef : ) The website that we have been getting our recipes from is skinnytaste.com  This website is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! ( I know I already said that once but it really is! )

Monday night we had this recipe :

It was delicious!! And the best thing about it was Addyson loved it. She is pretty picky and she ate every last bite of her food that night!

Tonight we had Chicken Parmesean
It was also very good and again Addyson ate it up!

We are loving the healthy changes we have been making in our life. This website has helped me to find new recipes so we will not get burnt out on eating the same old stuff on our "healthy life change." I hate to call it a diet because I want us to keep this as our way of life. I want our children to see our healthy lifestyle and model by what we do. If  you want some yummy, but healthy recipes check out this website. You will not be dissappointed!

Oh yeah tomorrow night is Turkey Taco Soup : )

Lazy Day

So today was just one of the those lazy days. We had some super needed family time.  We played games and just sat around all day enjoying our handsome boys sweet smile and our big girl playing and singing. We played a match game with Addyson and she actually new how to play ! Finally!  We have been wanting to play games with her forever but it wasn't till now that she finally gets how to play them. I just love when we get to spend time together just doing the things that our kids want us today instead of rushing around and doing our "to-do list." Hope that everyone had a happy saturday. We sure did : )

* No pictures of our big girl, she was just not into the picture thing today!

Korbin is 3 Months

Well I really can't believe he is 3 months old! It seems like he has been here a whole lot longer than that! We have been around the world and back since he was born (literally). This boy is quite the traveler : ) Here is what Korbin has been up to the past three months:

  • Went to his 3 week appointment and weighed 8 pounds 1 ounce
  • He screamed quite a bit till we figured out what was going on with the little guy
  • Was diagnosed with severe acid reflux and milk allergy
  • Taking two medicines for his acid reflux; Prevacid and Zantac
  • Put Mommy on a Non-Dairy diet : )
  • Went to see a GI specialist at Vanderbilt and got put on a very expensive formula. Thank the Lord for samples : )
  • Went back to the doctor for a check up and weighed 11 pounds 3 ounces!!
  • Had his first Halloween and slept right through it
  • Had his first Thanksgiving and slept right through it
  • Had his first Christmas and slept right through it also.
  • Went on his first airplane ride. A very long airplane ride to go see his Nana and Pa in Alaska
  • He attended his Uncle Alex's wedding.
  • He met lots of new people
  • Has been holding his head up like a big boy since he was about a month old.
  • Smiling all the time. ( oh yeah and did I mention he is a big flirt! )
  • I haven't seen him roll over but when I go in his room to get him out of bed somehow he is on his stomach.
  • He has started to talk and laugh all the time.
  • He loves when his sister talks to him. I think that is when he smiles and laughs the most.
  • He has learned to pull his sisters hair.
