Still Learning

So I am still learning how this blog thing works. To be honest, I did not do my blog, Lilith did. She did a wonderful job!!! But how do I add buttons? Where? What are tweets? I need help!

I am currently doing the Bloggy Giveaways and to get extra entries you can add another persons blog button to yours or a link. I was going to do that, but where do I put it? Does it matter?

So here is where I will put the button until I know where a better place is!

Deal Seeking Mom

Now I can get my extra entry!

Weight Lose

I am trying to lose weight, as every woman does after having a baby. I have read that it is perfectly ok for me to look 6 months pregnant still. Well, maybe, but I feel so uncomfortable.
I hate going out in public unless I have my son with me. I do not want people to think I am just plain fat or still pregnant.
I am now trying to diet, which never works, and work out as much as I can, with what I have.

Lilith over at at Crunchy Green Lovin' Mom is also working out and dieting. Being in a similar boat I am. She also has little ones! (By the way they are way too cute!)
Here is a question that she has thrown out there in relation to all of this:

How did your week go? What favorite exercise did you learn?

My week was way crazy. I have been watching Lilith's 2 youngest daughters, ages 1 and 2, plus my 6 month old son. They keep me on my toes! Plus having a husband and other obligations, I have been running around very sleep deprived.
My favorite exercise that I have made up is I like to put my son on my belly while I am laying in a crunch position and I lift my pelvis up off the ground over and over again. He giggles because it bounces him and I get a work out. I also put him on my legs (stomach on shins) and in a crunch position, with my head off the ground, I lift my legs to a 90 degree angle. Now my son is 25lbs. and it does make for a very hard workout. I have to watch myself. But this keeps him entertained and I get exercise. Plus, I run up and down the stairs all day long!

Grady's First Tooth

So yesterday, Grady cut his first tooth! And he has a second one that will be making an appearance in about a week or so. I can not believe that my son has a tooth! Its hard for me to imagine that he is at that stage already! He is so much pain. He has been up all night for the past 2 nights. Daddy and I are really tired! And on top of it, he has his first cold. It's not a bad one, just enough to make him snotty and cough.
I bought those dissolving teething pills that several people have recommended and he likes them. I was afraid that he would chock on them, but the dissolve pretty quickly. And we also do the whiskey on the gums, even though everyone says not to. People have been doing it for generations. Seriously? Its not like I am giving him a full shot of Jack. I put a very little on my finger and put it on his gums.
Once the tooth is more visible, I will put up a picture.

So my child is HUGE!!! Today is his 6th month birthday! And he had his 6th month check up. He is 24lbs 7 oz, 28.25 in long! Big boy! And everyone in the doctors office, including the patients, were going nuts over him! "Oh he is so cute!" "What a Stud!" "He is so Happy!" He is going to have a Grady Cult by the time he is a year old!
