Checkout My Teeth..and look what my Daddy got me!

"Wait Daddy, I am not ready. I need to get my smile on."

"Hi all my girl friends! Check out these teeth. Yep! I have 6 teeth. I have one on the bottom that is going to make an appearance any day. I tell you what though, these babies keep me up at night!"

So...Mommy said that she tried to fix this so you could see it better. But she didn't feel like dealing with it. So do what I do and turn your head side ways so you can see it. You do not want to miss what my Daddy got me!

Later Bloggy Friends...

Don't you just love work?!

Well I have been back to work for over a month. The first week was bad. I missed Will so much, I would come home in tears. That's when I decided to only work part time.

We are a small personal training studio, brand new and let me just tell you business is SLOW! I have one client so far. So you can imagine how my days go. We have been doing a lot of marketing, i.e. postcards, door hangers, letters, take ones, going to various neighborhood events. You get the idea.

But for some reason, it has been really hard to get people in the door. So what do you think? Do you think the economy has something to do with this? Do people not want to spend extra money on themselves? Now let me tell you this, if you have never sought out a personal trainer, it is a specialty service. So either you know how much it cost or you are in total sticker shock. We only do 24-60 sessions and that is so that people obviously stay committed to their health. The cheapest package is $1700. I know I certainly could not afford it. But where we are located, they definitely can.

If you have any marketing ideas that I have not thought of, or any advice, I would greatly appreciate it.

Have a great Monday. You know what I am doing. Not training.

8 Months Old...WOO! HOO!

Hard to believe my dear Willsey that you are 8 months old. I feel like you were just inside me growing. How I miss those hiccups and the kicks to my ribs. Yes, I do miss them.

There really is nothing like being pregnant.

I remember every night reading to you, resting my ice cream on you, catching food on my belly.

You, Will are something more than special, you are the light of my life. To see your smile, it melts my heart and sometimes brings tears to my eyes.

I now know why my mom, your grandma just loved her babies so much, there is just something wonderful about being a mom.

That smile that just makes me smile.

Swinging with Mommy at the park, he would get the giggles when we went up in the air.

I love you Will, more than air. xoxo

Just Another Manic Monday...

I have found that working and having a baby are more than stressful, sometimes it feels impossible! Anybody else out there with me?!

Here is my MANIC Monday and what has got my panties all in a bunch today...

5:45am-wake up....usually Will is waking me up..might get lucky and he will sleep tell 6:45am. please..please...how I love my wake up shower!

6:30-getting dressed, blow dry hair, a little mascara, body by victoria

6:45-get Will dressed, while he is trying to crawl away from me...i just love this!

7:00-out the door...drive in the opposite direction of work to drop Will off-it's worth it though

7:15-wait for L at Starbucks-sometimes indulge in a latte. watch some of the strange people take their shoes off and lay on the couches-do they know who else has been laying there? seriously.

7:30-back on the road, where I came from originally.

8:00-at work-train-market-fun-fun

1:00-out the door, race to panera to have a meeting with a lady that wants me to sell vitamins and then teach a nutritional class...guess we will see how this goes

2:15-pick up Will and come home

2:45-3:30-eat lunch and do program for 17 year that I train in the afternoons at a running trail

4:00-5:00-train client

5:00-quickly shower and change to look presentable

5:30-meet and greet with professional mom's group..hopefully this will get us some clients in the door...we are a new personal training studio

6:00-8:00-meet, pass out flyers, hopefully set some appts.

8:00-out the door to at least relax and watch Heros with my hubby.

9:30-pass out from exhaustion

this is what my day will be like today! that is why i have to write it tonight..Sunday...i will have no time to look at blogs...i might sneak in a little time before i pass out at 9:30

But this is why i do it all...for this little guy

Our Little Dragon..

Here is a shot of Will's costume for Halloween. Can you tell we are first time parents or what?! I got it almost 2 months in advance, I was afraid all the good ones would be gone.
He seemed to like it too!

Totally Random Tuesday!

I have noticed some other bloggers telling us about their randomness. So Will and I thought we would share some of our randomness...

  • Yesterday Will had a #2 that had sunflower seeds in it. (not sure what L, his babysitter fed him but definitely do not want to see or smell that #2 again!)

  • Decided yesterday that I might just do a Iron Girl Triathlon next year. More on that later.

  • Tried on a pair of shorts on Sunday that did not fit and inspired me to do a Triathlon. LOL.

  • Will thinks he can climb everything, even stand, but then when it comes to getting down to sit, he freaks out, and will not let go. It's funny but I quickly pick him up so that he does not have an anxiety attack.

  • Our new place is really nice but I kind of miss our condo and our neighbors, is that weird or what?

  • When Will is hanging out in his diaper and a shirt, he likes to take his diaper off and then he does his army crawl on the ground...ouch! Don't worry he is quickly saved by Mommy or Daddy.

  • Will likes to hold his mouth open so that Ella our dog can lick his face.

  • Watching on Regis and Kelly now some guy is going to run for 48 hours. Is this for real?

  • Woke up today with a flat tire

  • Will woke up at 10:30pm and 4:15am today. I thought they were supposed to be sleeping through the night?

  • Will has 3 top teeth coming in at once. This baby is amazing.

  • I love my life even when our own personal hurricane hits, bills, work, flat tires, stress and all that comes along with it.
