Images from this morning.
I found Salem on my unmade bed, headphones on, reading a book.
I then discovered how to make Tyndale smile–lots of cooing. (I know, totally cliche, right?) And, he has dimples!
My heart melted.
So naturally, I proceeded to make every sort of silly cooing sound I could think of, for the next half hour. And took nothing short of several hundred photos.
Forgive me for posting so many pictures of this little man.
I cannot help myself.
Resembles the great Winnie the Pooh, just a little, don’t you think?
♥ You guys, I worked hard on this, and put everything into it. I’m proud of it, and I really hope it will be helpful to you. You can get a glimpse of it here and see what’s in it, or buy it here.

A new series!
I’m excited to be moving more, & losing the weight I gained during this last pregnancy. So most Fridays, as a part of my new series, , I’ll share a little of my get fit journey.
A few things I want to make clear first.
I don’t think diet has to be a dirty word. Fad diets, or unsustainable diets perhaps give the word diet a bad rap, but I don’t know a better word for deliberately reducing caloric intake in order to achieve weight loss.
