An Update About Me

So remember a while ago how I posted how I had lost a bunch of weight? Well, if you've seen me lately you probably thought,"She doesn't look like she lost weight!" Don't worry, i'm not offended. There is actually good reason, I'm pregnant! I am 13 weeks along right now and just got back from the doctor. Everything looks great and I am due on March 31st. I can't wait until next month when we find out what we're having! Anyone want to place bets?

Isabelle's One Year Check Up

Last Monday I took Isabelle to the doctor. He said she looks perfect and is right on track developmentally. I had to laugh when he asked if she was pulling herself up on things because she had passed that step long ago! I told him she had been walking for weeks and he laughed. Just today I noticed that she is practically running now! I always love seeing what percentage she falls into for height, weight, and head circumference. I was pleasantly surprised to find out she's not as chubby as I thought. She is 21 lbs which is only 50%. An interesting fact though, Justin only weighs 5 lbs. more than her and is a year and a half older! She was 29 1/2 inches which puts her in the 60th percentile for height and her head, following the Bradshaw tradition was the biggest at 70%. We're glad that she is so healthy and strong! Also, she finally has a tooth! Her front, bottom right tooth finally poked through a couple of days ago.

I wanted to post pictures that my friend Rachael has been taking for me since Isabelle was born. Rachael is so talented and I am so lucky to have a friend that is willing to take the time to work with my children to get the best shot of them. Here are some of my favorites:

This was taken at 1 month. Can you believe the attitude already?!

I love these pictures of her taken at 6 months!

These four were taken last week when she turned one. It was so hard to make her hold still long enough to get a picture! I think they turned out really cute though! Thanks Rachael!

Justin's First Day of Preschool!

Today was Justin's first day of preschool! I was excited (and a little hesitant!) but for some reason Justin wasn't! It was the weirdest thing. For so long he has been asking to go to "cool" like Robyn and when it was finally time he was all shy and timid. If you know Justin you know that he is usually very excited and happy about everything but not today. He didn't even want to get his picture taken and that's why there is such a lame picture of me holding him because that's all he would let us do. When we got to the house he was still acting weird, but went in without any fuss, so that was good. He was fine when he came out and his teacher said that he didn't cry or anything but that he wasn't very happy until she got the animals out. Another wierd thing, he told the teacher that his name was Peter! I have no idea how he even knows this name, maybe she misunderstood him, I don't know! Hopefully the next time will be better or else Justin might become a preschool drop out! Justin acting shy and not excited!
Justin outside the school, still not excited!
