so, it is getting close to my birthday. i usually don't do a whole lot for my birthday, and since it is on a tuesday this year that is unlikely to change. i have been pretty good about getting my lazy butt to the gym the last few weeks. i even found a pilates class i like to go to on thursday mornings. it is taught by this tiny little guy that has the same name as G. i am positive that if i keep going to his class that i will once again have a tight little middle... he gives a very good workout. it is only 45 minutes, but i can feel my core muscles working after about 3 minutes!

me 'n the hubby have decided that we are going to try doing a low-carb type diet since he is diabetic. i know that it will work for weight loss since i have done it before... and i figure that will help his blood-sugar at the same time.

the pinewood derby is this weekend for the cub scouts! G still has to finish his car. he has been doing better in school the last few weeks... i don't think we have had any calls! we decided to cut his hair as it was getting somewhat poofy and unruly. i was kinda tired so we buzzed it. he looks cute still though - he has a nice shaped head!

M is becoming quite a treat to be around (if you didn't catch the sarcasm in that statement, just know that it was there). she is quite determined to have things her way or no way at all. she pretty much refuses to potty train unless she is bribed (and even then she will just pretend to go potty by just sitting there for a few minutes and then saying she has gone). this is a huge source of frustration for me as she will be 4 (yes, i really said 4) in just a few months. i am convinced that she wants to be the baby still and probably wont really try to potty until we get CJ started. the good news here is that he will take off his own diaper when it gets uncomfortable, so he may not be too far off from starting!

CJ has also started talking. i know a lot of other people's babies start much sooner, but my babies seem to put off talking until it is absolutely necessary. they are practically (but not totally) speechless until they are about 2, at which time they begin to talk and never stop. being that CJ is not 2 for another 4 months... he is way ahead of the curve with his 10 words or so!

guess that's all for now...

Sounds like the family and work are keeping you busy!

Good luck with your low carb diet. I don't know if I could do it.

Thank thank thank for the beautiful quilt. It is on our bed right now and everytime I see it, it brings a smile to my face.

Give those darling kids of yours hugs and kisses from all of us.
