We're fixed!!! :)

The blog is fixed, the blog is fixed!  I can blog again!  A huge thank you to my friend Katie for coming over and fixing it for me.  She also has a wonderful blog:

Audrey took swim lessons these past two weeks and it was AMAZING!  She took it with three of her friends with a private instructor, Ms. Kristy who is awesome.  I was a little apprehensive with how Auds would do, but she just jumped right in and was a little fish.  I am SO proud of her.

Waiting for lessons to start with Sara and Madi

Swimming on her stomach!
 Look at me!
 Splashing with friends.

This has been one of my favorite experiences with Audrey yet.  She really tried her hardest and listened and was just all around a rock star.  I can't wait to start swim team eventually, just like I did!!

Testing Again

Playing with Nixon and Daren!  :)

Book Rec

Since I can't figure out how to post pictures on here now, I might as well tell you about my new favorite book that I'm reading.  It's called "Confessions of a Scary Mommy, an Honest and Irreverent Look at Motherhood- The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly."  It's by Jill Smokler.

I can't put this book down.  First of all, for those who truely know me, you know I am always trying to figure this mommy thing out.  Am I playing with her enough?  Disciplining properly? Etc, Etc.  And it alway seems like everyone else has it all together and no one likes to complain about mommy issues.  I won't name any names.  ;)  But this book just keeps it real and tells it like it is.  Each chapter starts off with anonymous moms telling their confessions like:  "I confess that most days I have no idea what I'm doing."  and " I tried for 7 years to get pregnant and now I wonder if it's worth it." 

It's hard to read at times, but so true.  Motherhood is HARD.  But it's also the best thing ever.  And what's better than knowing that everyone is struggling right along with you?  :) I recommend it for all Mommies!

Swim Lessons!

Blogspot is not my friend recently.  Yesterday I had a whole post dedicated to Audrey's swim lessons, but it wouldn't let me post.  So I will try again today with less pictures.  Audrey is taking private lessons at her friend Madi's house with 2 other friends and it is so much fun.  Audrey has really taken to it and is a little daredevil!  She let's Ms. Kristi drop her to the bottom and she swims her way up!  She can also swim from where Ms. Kristi drops her to the step.  It's amazing and Audrey is just so proud of herself.  This is one of my favorite mommy experiences yet.  Seeing my daughter excel at something that she loves!
