Edwin: "Darn! How do I always end up backwards?"
Since I haven't been very faithful with my posts, I thought I would include several pictures from the past week. On Friday after work, (we got out early!) Mom and I took the boys to the park. Anthony and Edwin had a blast running around and playing on the swings. I have a great video of Anthony pushing a hysterical-laughing Edwin. Remind me to post it for you tomorrow. On Saturday, Ed had to work, so my little man and I enjoyed a day at home together. Yesterday (Sunday) was great. I went to church in the morning and then spent the afternoon cleaning my bedroom. Now I know some of you are thinking the Carolina sun has fried my brain because cleaning couldn't possibly be great. Oh, but it can. You see, I've been staring at a closet full of too-small clothes for almost two years now. Yes, for 9 or 10 months of that time, I was pregnant. And then I kept telling myself that "as soon as I lose the baby weight, I'll be able to wear all of this." But I've realized two things:
1. I don't want to torture myself any longer. Yes, I still have some weight to lose and it's not all due to pregnancy (um..can anyone say Coca-cola??). But I want to feel good about myself NOW. Not in some unseen amount of time.
2. When I do lose the weight, I plan to go shopping for new stuff!!
So there you have it. It felt sooooo great to rid myself of excess clothing (and most likely some mental baggage as well). My trunk is full of stuff to bring to Goodwill tomorrow. It's all in good condition, so somebody might as well get some use out of it.
Today Edwin & I joined the others at Anthony's swim lessons. We watched in amazement as he jumped from the super high diving board!!! I was so impressed and realized that I'm a total chicken. There's no way I would have done that. We had an afternoon barbeque and then headed home to spend a quiet evening. Yeah right. Edwin was so full of energy!! It's really funny to watch the process of him getting tired though. You can tell he's almost ready for bed because he gets really giggly, and starts stumbling over his own two feet. It's as if he's learning to walk all over again. Oh great. I think I just described my 21st birthday! Haha.
Anyway, Edwin is currently in his crib dreaming sweet baby dreams. And Ed is passed out in our bed. He's been getting up at 3:30 AM for work lately. Yes, I did say AM. CRAZY!!!! I'm enjoying a few quiet moments of winding down before I too will hit the sack. Tomorrow will get here very quickly. Hope you all enjoyed your weekend :)
