Charlie is 7 months and a few other updates

Charlie is 7 months and such an active little guy! He rolls EVERYWHERE and has even started getting up on all 4's ready to crawl... he has started moving forward a little bit, one crawl forward and a flop! Lily encourages him all the time- it is adorable! I am going to weigh Charlie in the morning and I will update this with his weight! His 7 month picture will be taken mid-April as I am going to get the kids Easter pics taken then! When we were at his 6 month pictures he was super happy- the photographer asked if she could take some extra pictures of him for their Easter Ad! A picture of the ad is below!

Charlie has decided he is not a fan of jarred baby foods... he will eat the jarred fruits no issue.. but gags on the veggies and the meats. So today while Lily was at school I set to work and made a bunch of baby food... Spinach, Peas and Sweet potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, Apple and Chicken, Mangoes, and Mangoes and Strawberries. For supper I gave him the Sweet Potato, Apples and Chicken- he ate almost the whole little container!! Success! I guess I will have to keep this up!

In other news around here:

Nelson was laid off from his job out of nowhere last Wednesday- we were shocked to say the least! It actually turned out to be a very good thing- he strongly disliked where he was working and they were pretty slow! They say everything happens for a reason, and in this case it is true!! Nelson got a new job on Saturday... even better than before!! He loves the new place and it is a very busy shop!

Lily is *almost* potty trained... only 1 accident all day today! She knows exactly what she should be doing- but doesn't want to stop playing long enough to use the toilet! We have tried so many reward/food/sticker systems... but in the end- when she is ready, she will be 100% trained!

I have been busy at work trying to keep up my lent goals- no candy, chocolates, or fast food- and working out everyday- sometimes I do the Ab Circle and other days walks with the kids! I have kept up with everything so far- aside from a few missed workouts! This has helped me get to my pre-Charlie weight... just need to get to my pre- Lily and pre-fertility drugs weights!

Last week Nelson and I had a small party to celebrate our 30th birthdays- it was really nice to spend the evening with our closest friends! We played a few games, had some drinks, and some laughs! There is a picture of the great cake below!

We have a few trips coming up- Ohio at the end of the month for my little cousins First Communion (Nelson can't make it to this trip). And then we are going to Myrtle Beach with the kids in May- our first plane ride with the kids- any advice is much appreciated!
