About 2 1/2 months ago I started working out 5 days a week with friends and watching my eating. To date I have lost 14 pounds. I have 11 left to reach my goal. It is amazing the difference 14 pounds makes:) I am feeling more like myself and looking forward to reaching my goal.
the picture in the red shirt is my before picture. the ones in the blue shirt are me with 14 pounds off of me

As you can see Matthew is getting sooo big! We are so blessed. He is such a happy and peaceful baby. the kids just adore him. He is growing so fast.
As I write this - a month behind - he is actually 5 months old today. He is doing so much: rolling from back to tummy, playing with his feet, taking off his socks, beginning to teeth, sleeping through the night....it is just amazing.

Yet again I am floored at how quickly time passes. On February 5th Matthew reached his 3 month birthday.
It seems like yesterday when I was waddling around sooo ready to give birth. Then he was home in our arms , and now he is 3 months old.
Matthew is such a wonderful baby. He smiles and coos all the time. He loves to be played with and held. Good thing there are so many accommodating people around:). He has discovered his hands and loves to fold them, put them in his mouth, and put his blanket or anything in his reach into his mouth. He is just perfecting the last skill - it is newer:)
Enjoy his 3 month pics!!! I loved taking them.
It is so hard to believe that 17 years have gone by so quickly. I still feel like Austin is my baby. Austin we are so proud of the young man you are and the man you are becoming. You have worked so hard and sacrificed so much to reach your goals. We are soo glad to be back in Michigan and able to be together again as a whole family unit.
May God bless you this year and always. May you continue to grow in His Graces and use all of your talents to serve His Kingdom.

Merry Christmas and Happy New year everyone!! Sorry I am so behind. The holidays just flew by with so much to do with friends and family.
It was so god to be back here and enjoy all the festivities. Austin was home for 7 days, we were able to attend the Wrubel Christmas party, we saw lots of friends and enjoyed hanging out together.
I put a lot of pictures on of all of our fun. In the pictures are the kids, our decorations, my sister, my dad, My brother , and my friend Kim. the last one is the front of our Christams card. I apologize to those I missed as I ran out o f cards:( I hope everyone is enjoying a blessed 2009 and I will try to keep more up to date.

Matthew's baptism was very special. Our dear friends - Bill and Kim - came up from Florida to be his godparents. We have such a nice time and he is blessed to have them as his godparents.
Deacon Steve - a family friend - performed the baptism. His beautiful wife did the music and it was just a very special and beautiful baptism. Austin and Albert Faraj were also participants in doing the reading and the petitions.
To help us clebrate the Perrottas and Farajs joined us along with my family. We had a wonderful celebration at the Farajs after the baptism to celebrate Matthew's becoming a Son of God. They put on such a nice party (the Farajs and the Perrottas) and we all have a great time.
