I ditched the mom jeans and chopped about 5 or so inches off my hair. I am a new woman. I went down a size in jeans (holla!) and I'm super pumped. I also started the Jillian Michael's 30 day shred with The Bear and I'm totally loving it. She is a slave driver and it's exactly what I need. And you can't beat the twenty minutes it takes to complete in your own living room. Hopefully I can get rid of some more of the baby weight a FULL YEAR after the baby was freakin' born. She's worth every pound of the fifty that I put on.

We're still in the throes of our move and I feel like it will never be done. Toss in the holiday season and life is really getting busy. But it's wonderful and I wouldn't change it for a thing.

The Barracuda has been sleeping through the night this past week (like 12 hours!) and it has made such a huge difference. I miss our late night snuggling sessions, but I don't miss how exhausted I was. Let's face it, I'm tired enough as it is. She is cruising around the furniture still and on Thanksgiving Day, she pulled herself up on The Bear, let go, and clapped her hands while maintaining her balance. I was so surprised and proud that I cried. This first year has just flown by and I'm so happy-but a little sad-that it's coming to a close. I shake my head and get goose bumps every single time I look at my sweet (and quite sassy) little girl. Watching her discover life has refreshed my own. Every. Single. Day.
