Soaking it up!

Hi guys! I have not been a great blogger this past week. Our computer is having fits again, and I find it hard to sit here and wait (and wait and wait) for pictures to download/upload (whichever it is!). Anyway, it is behaving so far today, so I am going to catch up while I can! :) Instead of doing much on the computer, we have been soaking up all the love from our sweet babies. Let me tell you, I really haven't missed the computer much except for wanting to finish up with some Christmas shopping. These two little rugrats keep us hopping!

Here is a little bit of what is going on with us...

Collier is GROWING! He is a huge hunk of love, and I can't get enough of him. He is night-and-day different from Landry. He hates all the toys Landry loved, and loves all the toys she hated. He is super interested in anything that makes noise and lights up. He is not even 4 months old yet, but has already been loving the walker and bumbo seat. He can even scoot himself backwards in the walker...he is so strong! Collier loves to be talked to, and he will smile so big and coo back at us now. We love having long conversations with him. :)  He basically lives in pajamas because I think they are so darn cute and warm for him. Honestly, who couldn't just eat up a baby in footie pj's??

Landry is still a mess. Such.a.mess! She is so entertaining, and every day it is something new! She loves to dress up in new things, and she thinks everything that could possibly fit on her head is a hat. She is almost 20 months old, and I can't hardly stand that! Time has flown by so quickly. I wouldn't go back for anything because she is at such a FUN stage right now, but it just makes this mama's heart ache a little bit to watch her getting so big! We are going to start potty training after Christmas, and we are working on taking her "sassy" away right now. She actually just went down for her first nap with the tip cut off, and she fell asleep! Hoping this is a good sign of things to come. :) 
I cannot wait to watch her rip into her packages this Christmas. I think she is going to have a blast!  

And, for us....yes, we are still "cleansing" and having no sugar, gluten, etc. It has really been a good week! I feel great, and am so thankful to be off the sugar for a little bit in the midst of all this holiday craziness. I wish I had time to sit down and do a whole post on what we are doing (and I will at some point!), but if you want more info in the meantime, check out the website http://www.eatingwithpurpose.com/. This is Kristin, one of my best friends in the whole world, and I TOTALLY believe in what she promotes. The last time we did this 100%, we ended up staying on it for 4 months pretty strictly before we got pregnant with Landry. This time, we are doing more of a lifestyle change to more "whole" eating instead of the Phase 1 100%.
We are not doing it for weight loss...just to feel better and take better care of our bodies. BUT, Micah lost 30 pounds the last time we did it, and I have already lost 5 pounds in a week! Feeling good and happy to be feeding my family more healthy options!
