School, Stroller Strong Moms, and Benjiboy Too











My little girl is in preschool, and I can hardly believe it! We've got her enrolled two days a week now, and she LOVES it!! She comes home telling me all about her day playing on the playground and singing songs with her friends.  The refrigerator is covered in her art work, and she's so proud.  Her "hoo hoo backpack" is hanging by the door.  She looks forward to each day, and I love being a new "carpool mom."  Seriously though, I know it sounds kinda lame, but setting an alarm and waking up before everyone to fix breakfast and start chores, laying out clothes the night before - I really do love everything about it.  I love being a mama.  It's by far the BEST and most rewarding job I've ever had - and I get to do it the rest of my life! High five to that! :)

random day in Forsyth - just shy of 2 mths old
proud big sister!
While Naomi's in school playing with her frans, I've started up at Stroller Strong Moms of Savannah in beautiful Forsyth Park.  It's a great way to get exercise (think cardio kick-your-butt exercise), and it's a great way to meet with other moms three days a week.  I am LOVING having a new fitness routine where I can take my kid(s) and have a trainer to push me to try harder.  I can set up a DVD in my living room all day long, but I need the extra push from others to take it to the next level. The other moms and the trainer help to do that, and 9 weeks postpartum?  I am having trouble keeping up! It does get easier, right?
stroller strong moms!



I'm liking the challenge, but Benjiboy isn't digging it so much.  I skipped out today and yesterday to get things situated and organized for an upcoming trip, and Benjamin has been able to take a good nap both days.  On the days I go to exercise, he hardly gets a morning nap and cries throughout my class kind of stressing me out.  I know the "routine" with baby number two is more difficult than it was with just one baby, but I don't really like him to cry - at least not as much as he does when I'm there.  So, I'm kind of torn right now between sucking it up and continuing the classes or doing what my mama instinct tells me to do - sit it out until he's a little older and rock my baby to sleep in the mornings.  Besides, he's only this little once.  I'm going to try it again next week.  There are other babes his age, so we shall see! 

Benjamin is now a little over two months old, and he is full of personality.  He's been smiling (on purpose) since he was around 6 weeks old, and he's been laughing a lot more for the past couple of weeks. On September 30, 5 days after his 2 month "birthday," he BELLY LAUGHED hysterically at a silly noise I was making.  It was such a highlight - squinted his eyes like his Deddy always does and just let the laughter roll.  Too cute.  He's a big ol boy, putting on the pounds what seems like daily, and he is already fitting into 3-6 month clothes.  3 month clothes are almost too small at this point.  Gosh, don't you just love chunky babies?  I could kiss every wrinkle and dimple on his little body! Sweet lil thang.

The next few are from a night at Jazzfest in Forsyth Park. Naomi's getting her groove on! 
 
More pictures to come soon, and I will be uploading videos soon as well. Hopefully, I can find (or be told) of a new software or program to aid in picture organization. Sorry the blog's lookin so sloppy these days!  Keep posted!
