One Going on Thirty

Our sweet, almost 17 month-old is very observant, and has been an old soul since the day he was born.  

Most weekdays we come home and go upstairs where I workout on the elliptical or lift weights, while Little Pope plays and watches movies.

So one day he follows me up the stairs, closes the safety gate, and then immediately climbs on the elliptical.  He hasn't quite mastered the feet on the pedals part yet!

He also thinks he is old enough to be lifting on the multi-gym machine.  I was around the corner lifting and found him trying to climb down after climbing all the way up on his own.  Pretty soon he will be cocky like the Nutrition Nazi and screaming I-I-I-I workout.  (Name that song.)

Then there is his passion for yard work.  He is always touching and feeling the mower and lawn tools in the garage.

He takes helping out very seriously.  Type A would probably be an accurate description.

In this pic I am guessing he was probably giving NN the evil eye for not working fast enough.

Hopefully he will not out-age us anytime soon!

Like Novacane

A little over six years ago I finally met my match, and three years ago this week on a beautiful beach with family and friends I married that wonderful man.   

 I never knew how empty my life was until I met the Nutrition Nazi. 

 The last six years have brought so much happiness and so many new experiences all because of him.

Though most days are mass chaos right now, with each passing day I feel our marriage becomes more beautiful.

I can't imagine spending the rest of my life with anyone as amazing as the Nutrition Nazi.

Happy Anniversary!
