Summer Happenings

I blame the lack of regular blog posts this summer on having a few too many 'project balls' up in the air at the same time. So i thought i'd just do one big post from the last few weeks to get caught up. Since i am currently working on updating Lucy's baby book i know all too well how important keeping the blog updated is!

Along with working on Lucy's book i've also started party planning for both her 1st birthday party and Liam's 3rd! Lucy is having a Milk & Cookies party and Liam, of course, is having a monster truck party. He asks me frequently to "i go on pinterest and look at monster truck cakes, please" hahahaha.

About five weeks ago I started doing P90X and oh my goodness i LOVE it! I had been working out hard twice a day (cardio in the morning and weight training in the afternoon) for 12 weeks and just did not feel like i was getting the results i had been working hard for so i switched over to p90x and it was the best decision ever. I am kind of obsessed with this man....
i should also mention he is 54?!? yeah....eating good and staying active is the way to go folks...proof right there! 

He is going to be in Atlantic City next month and you can go to a workout with him.....if there was any way to swing it i would so be there!! Single leg wall sits...making Fridays super fun :-)

Lucy has been talking up a storm lately! It is so different since Liam was kind of a late talker. She loves cookie monster and wrestling with pillows (she dive bombs pillows and snuggles with them). She loves to walk holding hands and is so good at kicking a ball when she is walking. She even swings her leg back and hard forward to kick it....future olympic soccer player right here :-) She is also getting so fast a cruising along the couch and even turning and reaching for something else to walk to. She is still my rockstar eater, girlfriend will eat almost anything (except mashed potatoes and steamed green beans), it makes meal time SO SO SO easy! The weather has started to cool down and i've had to raid her closet for the random bigger sizes i have stored away. Last year at this time i never would have thought to buy her 18-24 month clothes?!?! Oy..... luckily i had a few stored away that i thought she would be wearing NEXT fall.

Mr. Liam is doing great too. He loves cars and trucks and playing with them most of the day. He love imaginary play with his cars and trucks. As i type this he is making engine noises and racing his cars around. It is amazing how much his language has exploded this last year and so neat to be able to have an entire conversation with him just like he was another adult. He loves baseball and playing in the yard with Alex and running the bases after Alex's softball games. He is the teams entertainment at each game, his amount of energy always amazes them. One of Alex's dreams came true this last month when Liam learned to hit a pitched call, he wanted Liam to be able to do it before he turned 3 and he did. We are still struggling with Liam's picky eating, we are just hoping the tides change soon and he starts opening up to trying new things. Liam has official attached this last year to one of his stuffed animals. Baby Bunny goes almost everywhere with him and the poor thing is showing the signs of all the loving.

 Friday night movie night! It has been so fun having a new weekly tradition with my boys.

Both kids have been loving having tea parties together....although i am pretty sure Lucy is just in it for the snacks :-) They even "cheers" together .. adorable!

I'm a big P90X fan, too, although I'm still trying to get back into working out even 2-3 times a week after having Natasha (and that includes walking). I have no idea how you have/had time to do 2-a-days! It's pretty logistically difficult for me to get any kind of a workout in at all. I'm jealous because I'd love to be fit again. One day...
