Mikelles 2nd Birthday!

Our baby girl is growing up way to fast. She turned 2 yesterday March 30th, and I have to admit, I am really sad. I know they grow up fast, but she is just doing all of these things that make her a big girl now (like potty-training herself) and I just realize she is not my baby any more. Its a little depressing. :( j/k We are so grateful to have this little, sweet, crazy ball of fire in our lives! I dont know what we would do with out her.

Well here is where it all began. Mom looking oh so stylish in stripes! haha I do not love being pregnant. These pictures are a little painful for me to look at.
This is one of my favorite pictures with me and Mikelle. She had the blackest hair and looked a little spanish or something because she had such dark skin. She was born in the evening on March 30 2006, she weighed 6 lbs 7 oz and was 20" long. We were immediatly in love with her!

This is another one of my favorites! The picture sais it all! :)

Micky had the chubbiest little cheeks! I still love to kiss on them!

I thought it would be fun to do a list of all the things we love about our little Ruby Mikelle Abbott!

*She is soooo wild

*She loves to "nuggle" with her "bankies" that have "ties"

*She is very naughty sometimes but cant stand to be in trouble

*She is very quick to forgive others and to say she is sorry to them

*She loves her daddy more then anything

*Her best friend is her sister and they love to play together

*Her favorite foods are oatmeal, bananas, cheese and soda (that ones dads fault)

*Her favorite thing to do is be a pretend mommy

There are so many more wonderful things but I dont have time to list them all, we love you Mikelle and are glad you had a great 2nd birthday!!!

Enough is Enough

Ok this is just gonna be a quick rant session so bare with me. I am done, I have gained almost as much weight as the 1st time I was pregnant (and im not pregnant) and its got to stop. I dont have very much energy, I feel like BLAHHH and I cant even get 3/4 of my jeans on any more and I have had it. I don't know if I just let my "Holiday Weight" start 6 months early and go over for like 3 months after or what but I need to really get a handle on my self so I am making a commitment now to knock it off. I am not going to starve myself or do any crazy out there diets but I am going to eat healthier foods and much smaller portions. My friend Ashley and I are going to run 2-3 miles three times a week and also play racquetball every saturday morning. My hubby and I are going to play in a coed volley ball league (not so much exercise but fun) and I am also playing womens volley ball 3 times a week (much more exercise and excitement). My goal is to lose 10-15 lbs, to fit in my pants again and this is going to sound weird but I want to be able to do the splits again so I need to work on my stretches. So I guess I am posting this for the world to see, to give myself that extra motivation because I really need it and who knows maybe I will help motivate some one else! :) I will keep you posted on the progress. Ps If any one has any good weight loss tips, good exercises or some yummy healthy recipes please share them with me, I really need help!!! Thanks so much. :) Tree

This last weekend the girls and I went to my sister Karas house and had such a fun time. Michael was off hunting something somewhere and her honey was at the dunes in CA, so it was officially a girls weekend!!! It was a great, lazy, relaxing good time. We did all the good girly stuff like painting our nails, watching chick flicks, a tightening face mask, and just plain ol girl talk. We really love spending time with my sister, she is such a fun person. Not to mention she is GORGEOUS so shes nice to look at too. haha Thank you for a great time and a really comfy bed! We love you so much Kara!! :)

The girls just relaxing by the pool after a good dinner. (you can tell by there messy faces)
Mikelle got a hold of the camer and she did a pretty good job.

Mikelle loves the water! She was so excited about the pool. Mom being paranoyed!

Who knows what this pose is about

Micky found aunt Karas red high heels

I forgot to warn her about my babys obsession


Oh few its just us

Ok I know I should never post this kind of stuff

But the girls loved face painting and not getting in trouble for it

"I do it self" is Mikelles favorite saying

Well she really likes to tell me "Jayda touble mama" too. :)

Proud of her good work
