Burn Baby Burn

In an attempt to get back into shape, I have been logging my food and exercise on my iTouch thru myfitnesspal.com. It is so easy to keep track and you can find most any food:

A class is so not in our budget right now, so I picked up a Pilates video to do at home with Chazz at my side!


Which is not easy. I’m on my mat doing my thing and he is on his, either laughing at me (so distracting!) or rolling under me.
Aside from my video 2x a week, I am also *trying* to get in this mini workout everyday:
Abs-
20 crunches
10 pushups
30 leg lifts (each)
Butt-
15 pelvic tilts
10 up and outs (each leg)
15 lunges
10 fire hydrants (each)

I love that burn, baby!

A Minute for Mommy- Banana Mask

Sunday is my mommy day. I make time for a fun ‘somethin’ that I would never get around to otherwise! Every mom deserves brilliant skin so here is one of my favorite masks. The ingrediants are easy and it is quick to make- perfect for moms in the fast lane!

BANANA MASK


Ingredients:

1 banana, ripe
1 tbsp honey
1/3 cup plain yogurt
1/3 cup oatmeal
An orange or a lemon

Preparation:

Mash the banana and mix in the honey, yogurt, and oatmeal.
Add a few drops of juice from an orange or a lemon.
Apply to face for 10-15 minutes before rinsing with a steaming warm washcloth.

The oatmeal gently exfoliates and helps reduce any redness, while the natural oils in the banana creates a barrier to keep moisture in and dirt and toxins out. Enjoy!

The Plague is Over!

Chazz woke up with a low fever yesterday morning, so I decided to take him in, just to be sure. They took his temp (99.7) and some swab tests. Thank goodness it turned out to be JUST a cold, because RSV is going around and our Pedi thought he also might have strep. But after a couple quick tests, it was all negative, and our little man is going to be ok!
Since we don’t have a humidifier, I have been using the shower to steam up the bathroom! And thank goodness my mom brought some Vicks!

Both the boys were miserable… Roman had the flu, and was trying his best to stay away from our little one! He is such a sweet dad, he had been sending his love across the room to avoid infecting him!

The sun is even out today! Maybe a walk is in-order for us this afternoon??

Sophie the Giraffe!

This teething toy has been getting awesome mommy-reviews from the moms over on thebump.com and we just have to get one for Chazz! I love that it helps develope their senses and soothes their little gums!


This is how it works…

•Sight:
Dark contrast for developing sight.

•Hearing:
Sophie’s squeeker keeps baby entertained and later teaches cause and effect.

•Taste:
She’s made of 100% natural rubber and food paint and the soft texture and legs are perfect for soothing sore gums.

I checked out the website, and they claim to be the best toy ever! I claim it to be the cutest!
I hunted down the best deal on amazon and will be ordering it for Chazz ASAP!

Rolling Over!

Chazz has been rolling over from back to belly for a while. But the last two days, he has really bumped up his skills! He uses it to get around in circles and to look at us across the room! He can even scoot a couple inches when he really wants to!


We’re proud of you, Little Man!

The First Cold: Day Two

Is not as bad as it could be. Little Man is not very fussy for being sick! He’s just not interested in food at all. I have been fighting to get him to eat even a couple ounces at a time. The poor guy just wants to cuddle!

I love you, Chazz! And I hope when we wake up, you’re healthy and its sunny!
