I know I know. I am horrible about blogging, and to be honest not so sure if many of you keep up anymore. Again I have been thinking about closing my blog. However my journey through loss was so in depth if I could help one person...

Speaking of loss, a very close friend of mine lost her mother unexpectedly the day after Christmas almost two years ago. A little over a month ago another friend expectantly lost her father. He was a great man and will be missed by all. I am just shocked and heartbroken for my friend and my friend's mother who is now a widow at the age of 70. Life is so so tough and unfair.

The Meindels are trudging along. Preschool is doing great! Carter really does not need speech anymore "although we will continue until he is 3" and he is ever so handsome!

Miss. Emmy has had her second hospital visit due to a fever (which turned out to be viral not kidney related thank heavens!)
We celebrated my grandparents 85 and 80 birthdays!

I am still focused on fitness as always and have lost over 33pounds! Currently in a size 4 or 26 for jeans! Feeling great!

Catching up!

This is the end of September catch up!

Carter had his first day of preschool! He walked in turned to me and said BYE MOM! He asks about school every day its so adorable! I loved school as well so I only hope he shares that!
His love for his sister grows daily! He is a HUGE helper and is so sweet!

I on the other hand am back to working three days a week! The hardest part of working is child care. I honestly don't know how anyone does it! Wednesdays are split up between my best friend(kids go to her house, a dear friend (who comes to the house), and my husband, Thursdays are spilt between my brother in law, my father and a sitter. It all works out but its so tough to leave them!
Me? Im finding time to cook, clean the house and of course work out. I am so into fitness! I am a dedicated 4-5 times a week. Sometimes on my two off days I fit in squats and free weights. I am a avid shakeology drinker. I also just started cutting sugar. I used to not eat carbs but I do now and I count everything. It used to be about being skinny! NOW? its about being fit!

Emery is 3 Months!

Isnt she just the most beautiful little girl!? She is so perfect! She has bright blue eyes and light almost red tinted hair! Its hard to believe she is mine! She is sleeping from about 1030-4 waking for one bottle then sleeping till 730. She HAS to be teething! EVERYTHING goes in her mouth! SHE IS THE HAPPIEST baby ever! Only negative thing is she HATES HATES the car. Makes going anywhere impossible! She is also still mainly breastfed! Its crazy that I have almost been breastfeeding for 4 months! She is also TEENY! She weighs just around 12 lbs and still wears 0-3 just grew out of newborn! NO SOCKS FIT as of yet! Winter is coming hopefully her little piggy's grow soon!
