Moms or expectant moms... wanna get fit??

I have recently join the Stroller Strides of Greater Birmingham! It is an AMAZING workout with your little one. You not only get a great workout but benefit from adult conversation, getting out of the house, and fellowship with other moms. Most of the locations (St. Vincents @ 119, Heardmont Park, Galleria, Vestavia, and Homewood) offer outdoor and indoor classes. Stroller Strides incorporates the environment, resistance tubing and the stroller to get an all-over body workout in 60 minutes. I have had a ball so far... instead of counting out reps with each exercise you sing songs to your baby! (i.e. Row Row Row your boat... while doing rows, or Jesus loves me while doing squats, etc) The kids love it! Of Course, York just stairs at me like I am CRAZY... but the older children just smile and laugh. I like this option because I don't want to leave York in the gym daycare... so this allows me to bring him along. It is also very reasonable... I pay $50.00 a month (cheaper than any gym membership) for the unlimited package. I go 5 times a week to various locations. I love the mix of cardio and strength training. Since I have been running my cardio is taken care of but I have done absolutely NO strength work. Needless to say, I am super sore! If anyone in the Birmingham area (pregnant or with little ones) is interested we would love to have you... go to click on Birmingham and contact Susan! I will post some pictures of York's new friends soon! Hope everyone is having a great week!
Love-Ev and York

Getting bigger each day...

January 19, 2009 (1 month Check Up)
weight: 7 lbs 4 oz
length: 19 3/4 inches
head circumference: 34 cm
February 19, 2009 (2 month Check Up)
weight: 10 lbs 6 oz
length: 22 inches
head circumference: 37 cm
As you can see York has done ALOT of growing this last month! Dr. Schroder was very impressed by his weight gain and head control. She also charted his head circumference measurement and feels confident that he is on track and will NOT need the appointment with the Neurosurgeon!! I can not express my relief. (So many prayers answered.) He also had 4 shots... but nurse Amy was phenomenal. He cried for only a second and finished eating... imagine that! York is now lifting his head, reaching for things with his hands, smiling, and finding his voice! We have an appointment next month for a weight and head check and then again in April for his 4 month visit. Also... the announcements have been ordered! They will be in the mail soon! We are finally getting some NORMALCY in our lives. That feels NICE...

Happy 2 Months...

Sweet Feet...Sweet Dreams
Pretty Baby
My baby is 2 months old!!! wow! We finally got around to decorating the bonus room...
York in his Lion robe after a bath... Shug and Daddy taking a little nap after a long days work in the new room.
I had to make sure the decor was MANLY enough...
Wesley's work area...

As you can see we have been busy putting finishing touches on the bonus room upstairs. It has been such a quick 2 months... York goes to the doctor on Thursday for this months check up and 4 shots!! He is definitely a morning baby... He wakes up in such a good mood and does most of his smiling then. He is also sleeping 6 hours during the night. It is AMAZING!! I forgot how much better you feel after 6 hours of sleep... I can function like a normal human being now! I am also working on the birth announcements... (I KNOW... a little LATE) But we have had so much going on that this was put on the back burner. I hope to have them out in another week or so. Wes is super busy with work and I am enjoying my time home with the little man!
