So, this story needed to be posted.

Jeff has been out of town for 4 days and Tyler has had ENOUGH.  He wants his dad so badly that whenever he pauses in his day he screams, "DADDY!"  When we pull into the garage and see Jeff's car he says, "Daddy's car!"  This leads us to yesterday afternoon.  

After a particularly exhausting swim lesson, which Tyler performed wonderfully at, the kids were exhausted.  We ate lunch and then I put them to bed.  Tyler always helps tuck Cameron in and then it's his turn for bed.  I tucked him under his covers and he was just SCREAMING: "NO, I WANT DADDY!" I said, " I know buddy, Daddy will be back Friday".  After about 3 minutes of this, he found his toy phone, picked it up and, after only hearing me say it one time, repeated, "Friday, Daddy.  Bye Bye".  Then he laid is beautiful head down and shut his eyes.

I was left thinking, that was crazy and incredible and... my baby is getting so big!  I love him!  So I texted Jeff the WHOLE story immediately ; ).

"CAMIES" loves her brother

(loving her brother's hat)

"CAMIES," as Tyler has started calling her, cannot get enough of her brother.  She craws around the house at his heels, laughs at EVERYTHING he does, wants EVERYTHING he touches, and pretty much WORSHIPS the little man.

(helping feed his Camies)

Ty is a terrific brother to her, while there are moments of hitting, smothering, body slamming, biting, food stealing, and screaming, there are many more of hugging, kissing, laughing, and helping her out.  What a pair!

This Deserved a Post on BOTH Blogs!

Well, guys... I have DONE it!  I past the 20 lb mark!! 

 I weighed in this morning at 154, which means that, even though it was my birthday, mother's day, my mom came into town, and it was bunco night last night (and all of the yummy treats that these events entail), I LOST 3 LBS!!! (19 to go!)

This puts my total weight loss at 21.5-ish lbs in 6 weeks.

Now that it is pretty obvious that I amlosing weight, people  are asking me what the heck I am doing... starving?  "How is it just melting away?" They ask... Let me tell you something... MELTING AWAY?  I think NOT!  I am practically killing myself out on the running paths and at the gym : )  all part of the fun! 

 So guys, there is no quick fix, no easy trick... it'sREALLY REALLY HARD WORK... then, keeping it off is the easier part.  So, lace up those shoes, search for some fun recipes, and keep track of what you're eating!!

Tyler's First Swim Lesson!

Tyler had his very first swim lesson today.  First he loved it, then he hated it, and when it was said and done, he was so proud of himself!

We went camping last weekend and it was a great time.  Here are some pics from our sleepless overnight adventure.

The kids' Sprint... Tyler LOVED it.  He did it about 3 times.


Ty and Kate are CRAZY about each other one second and then FIGHTING the next : )
