Checking in...

I haven't updated this thing in awhile. I take almost all my pictures on my iphone these days and to transfer them to our Mac is kinda's much easier to it at work so I've been slacking.
The last few weeks have been pretty busy. Parker started gymnastics. She loves it! She hated the first 30 minutes and cried to leave then had a sudden change of heart and ran out there and has loved it ever since. She goes 2 days a week for an hour but we might cut it to one day a week since she starts dance back up after Labor day. She is on a break from gymnastics until after Labor day as well. I can't wait to see all the fun things she learns at both!
We went to Ruidoso for 5 days as part of our annual trip there. My mom has a time share cabin so we go the same week every year. This time it was my mom, niece, nieces friend, my and my 2 rugrats. I was nervous taking both kids without Tanner but it went pretty good. My mom helped with Liam a ton and my niece and her friend kept Parker occupied the whole time. The first day there we saw 4 bears. A momma bear and her 2 cubs walked right by our balcony. And then later that night my smart self left a bag of trash on the porch. We were sitting watching TV and I looked over and saw a bear walking right up to our door. We had the main door open but the screen door shut. My mom and I both ran really fast, with a few screams, and slammed the wood door :)
We went to the horse races and took Parker for the first time. I let her pick out her favorite horse each race and bid on it. The horse she picked seriously came in last place every race..haha! We did some shopping and took Parker to look at the ponies. She wouldn't ride them :( Maybe next year. It rained a lot and we enjoyed the cooler weather.
Parker and I were in my good friend Ashley's wedding this past week. I was a bridesmaid and Parker was a flower girl. Parker did so good and looked adorable!!
I only have 2 weeks left at home with my little man. I am really sad :( I've enjoyed every second at home with him but I know I will like being back at work too. He is growing and changing so much! He is waking up once in the middle of the night to eat but hoping he goes all the way through by the time I go back to work. Tanner is a huge help though and we take turns so really we both get well enough sleep. He is having some tummy issues from switching to formula so we are dealing with that but hoping it gets better soon!
I started my 24 day challenge today and expecting to lose at least 15 pounds! Thats my goal anyways ;)
