Summer of changing is causing "change"

The "Summer of Change" is going strong here at the house. And since we are doing change we have all kinds of change going on with the twins. Such as.....



Learning how to use the basket and toys to get up onto the coffee table and


Flushing the potty (maybe this will come in handy next summer with the potty training goal I have already set)



As well as drinking "bottles" out of our sippies! Yes!



Kristin and her 4th of July sippy!





Lara and her 4th of July sippy!

So 2 "goals" done- I am "off the pump" and feeling good about having that time back!Girls drinking all drinks from a sippy ALL day! Even the "nite nite" bottle was gone on the 3rd- they took the sippy cup before bed and I washed the bottles and we are D-O-N-E with bottles!

I am still doing South Beach- a little disappointed with losing only 7 lbs in 2 weeks. I did SO much better the first time and I PROMISE I haven't "cheated" at all- not even once. I have set a goal to exercise 4 times a week. So far I have met that goal too, and I have found if I do it right after I fed the girls lunch, they will play and I can do my 35 mins of aerobic activity and a few sit-ups. I am "lucky" to get that time of exercise so I don't know what more I can do. Just frustrating... it is SO much easier to gain weight than to lose. I HATE PCOS!

Can't believe they will be 11 months old tomorrow! My babies aren't "baby babies" anymore... makes me sad...kinda.

Gah! 7lbs?! I want to lose 7lbs!! Thats awesome Court. Seriously.

And your girls are just too damn cute! Thats great that they are on the sippy cups. I was stoked when Noah went right from breast to cup. Sooooo much easier than bottles. Nice job, Mama!

I love seeing pictures of your girls! Its so much fun!

Congrats on meeting some goals, and don't kick yourself over the 7lbs. Thats great, and a great start to dieting. I know exactly what you mean (that its easier to gain weight than to lose it). I have thyroid disease, so I always struggle with my weight, and I'm REALLY self conscious about it. I hate that having something, like PCOS, makes it SO much harder to lose weight. I had really good success a couple years ago with Weight Watchers, have you ever thought of that? I'm hoping to be able to join once the boys are here, but that may be wishful thinking (because I apparently think I'm gonna have all this free time, yeah right...). Good luck!
