Wow does time fly! Our precious baby girl is 3 1/2 years old already. It's so weird to look back at pictures and see her so little and looking SO different! I cannot wrap my head around the fact that is was just a few short years ago. So many things in my life changed since she's been born. All for the good. Her mostly. I cannot imagine having gotten a more perfect child. Beautiful, caring, imaginative, energetic and giggly.
Everyday she has something new coming out of her mouth. She never ceases to amaze me with her imagination and thoughtful processes. Just the other day my 38+ inch tall, 29 pound skinny child asked me for bigger diapers to cover up her "big butt" as she turned and stuck her non existent rear end out, put her hands on her hips and began to shake her bootie to show me how big it is. Love her so much. She loves "Garbage" (or better known as Garfield to those who don't know my daughter). And pickles. She loves pickles. She's been known to call me before work and ask me to pick up some pickles on my way home from work. Right now she appears to have a crush on her new daycare teacher... Mr Johnny. She loves dresses.. LOOONG dresses momma! Loves her baby dolls and tries to brush their teeth, with toothpaste I might add all the time. here is a status update that was on my FB wall the other day.
"Ali and I walked home from her daycare today. The ENTIRE mile she screamed adn cried for me to hold her because she didn't want to walk. (this was after she told me she WANTED to walk home.) so we get home from the full mile of crying and we sit in the chair and she says to me....and I quote.... "Momma, can we go on a walk?"
What else has changed since Ali's birth? My fitness level, that's what! I went from a ... well let's face it... lazy person to running half marathons, regularly running 5K races and am scheduled to do my second RAIN ride. RAIN is a 160 mile bike ride starting in Terre Haute IN and going through Indianapolis and ending in Richmond IN. Last year it took us about 12 1/2 hours. The whole family does it and it's great! Ben was injured last year but will be joining us this year. My work has hired a personal trainer that comes in twice a week so I've been doing that for about a year and half now. I love it and my trainers are fabulous. Mean sometimes but fabulous! :)
I must go for now as work beckons me.
I will try to get on here and blog more. I'm not good at it but will improve if I coudl just remember to. I would love to be able to blog Ali's imagination here. :)
