Check in!

Wow!! Life is crazy! In a nutshell: I have a new job, am working on my second round of edits on my dissertation, and life with Hunter keeps me busy enough without those other things!

Some pics of my little man:

Life is good :) Still working on health and fitness- just another part of life really! Down another couple pounds, right at 140. So lost 12 pounds the last 3 months - pretty good rate! Will be back where I want to be in the summer if I keep it up :)


  1. Such a cute little guy! The first year is so magical! I'm glad things are going well!

  2. You've got a full plate!!! Good on you for keeping it all together. I remember doing my dissertation with small kids - no easy feat!

  3. Congrats on the job and sending you good wishes on your edits. Hunter is adorable!!!! :)

  4. Congratulations from me too.

    Hunter is just adorable - great photo's you've shared, thank you.

    All the best Jan

  5. Loved the pics. Hope the job and edits are smooth sailing. Glad to hear from you.

  6. Yeah! I am glad you updated! Sooo whats the new job? He is adorable!!

  7. Your little dude looks so much like you! He has your eyes. Beautiful. Hope the dissertation is going well!

  8. Hope things are still going well.

    I gave been back reading the archives of Amalah/Amy on Alpha mom. She has some topics that I wish she had been writing 26 years ago when I had my first baby.

    It might seem funny for me to be reading about babies/toddlers/kids, but that topic comes up around here a lot. My middle works with kids with autism. All three of my kids (yes even my youngest at 18) have friends having babies. One of my middle's friends, who is 22, has a 3 year old and a one year old.

    My mother did not have good suggestions for me years ago. My grandma who did have good suggestions died when my oldest was five months old. So the topics on Amalah are some that I figured out and did well. And some that I never figured out but made due.

    I very much enjoy Amalah/Amy's writing style.

    So, I thought I would pass on the link -

    It is very interesting.

    (I do want to caution that there are other moms who write on that site who I would not recommend. In fact I would recommend against reading them.)

  9. I just realized I think of your baby as a newborn, but he is probably walking between things now and his first birthday is coming quickly. Wow!
