I guess i should post about Sophie's 1st Christmas since i forgot to before...

It was perfect. It was a green favorite kind! We were at my parents place for Christmas Eve until boxing day. Christmas morning Sophie slept in until after breakfast. We woke her up to open presents. She got quite a few things for being only a 3 month old. We bought her a really cute little Dragon stuffed animal. His name is Scorch, I might just force it to be her favorite stuffed animal! We got some family pictures taken and had fun relaxing and spending time with family.
I took this picture of Sophie, i took about 30 pictures trying to get her to smile but it just didn't happen..all 30 pictures basically look like this one...but she is cute none the less...

so for christmas i made my sister Amy a necklace...that is kind of literal, it was made out of lace.

I think she likes it...she said she did and she wore it in public so i think she does. I saw it online and I thought it looked easy...turns out it was pretty easy, i think I might make a few more.

Also this month I turned 27! This is the age that has pushed me over the edge, I didn't mind turning 25 or ever 26...but 27, i am now in my late 20's...hard to believe! I had a prefect birthday, relaxing and spent time with Nathan, Caverly and my new friend Cameron! Cute family!!

So, i wasn't going to post this, but I thought that if I dont write it down or tell someone i might not follow through. I have a goal to lose 45 pounds by Aug 6, 2011. My friend Sarah from high school is getting married so that is the date I picked as my end date, and this tuesday is my start date. I think it can be done, and should be done, so there it is folks. I dont think I will post my weight cause i am just too embarressed but maybe along the way when i am feeling more conifdent I will let you in on it. That might not happen till the end, but we will see.

In other news...I have no other news. i lead a very uneventful life, somehow I thought that adding a baby to the mix would live'n things up a bit, but she is pretty perfect and mellow and fits right into our comfortable little life. I am sure that will change when she starts being a little more independant and crawling.
I have to say though she is growing up way too fast.

Here she is standing up by next to the ottoman...she's quite strong!
