Finally warming up...

Well MN weather is well MN weather, one day it can be cold and the next it's in the 70's. Yep that's why I love living here. I love that we have 4 seasons. Granted this year we didn't feel like spring was ever going to come it is here and hopefully here to stay.

Life is going well, my job is good, my family is blessed. Ian is doing great, he's walking, laughing, crying and just his normal self. He is everything to me. I am so blessed to have him in my life. We are trying to wean off the nuk and morning bottle. When he is at daycare he doesn't get a bottle or nuk. At home we are trying to only give him his nuk at bedtime. As far as the bottle goes, he still gets 6oz at night and we are down to 4oz in the morning. This next week it will be 3 oz and then the week after 2 oz. and then we will just cut it out all together. Then I hope to start working on the evening bottle.

Rob is doing well, he is on a weight loss challenge at work and has lost some weight, he is riding his bike to and from work each day, he has cut down on his portions and eating his meals more slowly. I'm not sure how much he's lost total but he's doing it and slowly the pounds are shedding off. Which is great because he is overweight and it does effect his health and all I want is for him to be healthy and happy so he can be here for his family as long as God plans him to be.

I'm doing better, having fewer moments of anxiety but when I do get them they can get bad. Other times I can manage them. I see my Dr. at the end of this month and we may add another med to the mix.

So all in all, life is good.

It's been awhile....

So life is good. My anxiety at the moment has been pretty good. I am currently seeing a psychiatrist, psychologist and going to a anxiety support group every 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month. I am really trying to nip this in the butt, dealing with it since I was gosh well forever and now I just need to be happy and healthy. I can't have anxiety run my life, run my families life etc. Also I don't want my anxiety and panic to get in the way of my marriage, yes it is a strain on my marriage at times. Which I totally can understand because it is very frustrating for me I can only imagine what it does for him.

Ian is doing good, he has started walking with out holding onto anything this week. He is so darn cute when he does it too. He looks like a zombie with his arms out in front of him for balance. He now has in 6 teeth, 4 on top, 2 on the bottom.

Rob is currently on a weight loss competition at work, he's really doing good in cutting down on his portions and trying not to eat unhealthy foods. He's eating slower also and that seems to be helping quite a bit. I am so proud of him, granted he has a lot he wants to lose, I think he can do it if he ups his exercise. As of now he's not doing much but the portion control and such is doing good. He's lost about 6 lbs so far.

Work is going OK, one of my very good friends was fired. I so enjoyed working with her, granted we both had our moments of moodiness we got through it. We laughed so hard we would cry, patients thought we were crazy. But work is going fine, it's more difficult but I'm learning a lot of new things, staying busy which makes the day go by super fast which is always nice.
