Since the Summer I have been dreading the idea of putting bathing suit on. One, because of my stretch marks and two, because I am still not at my pre-pregnancy weight. Would've had 7 pounds to lose, but I gained some weight in Florida. Anyway, It was too hot and I had to give in and not give a F**K.  I should be proud of myself; I lost 50 pounds! I've always been a curvy girl and I love that about me. I could never be super skinny and quite honestly I don't think I could ever get there even if I tried, I love eating!  I also  have not worked out since Gavin, well maybe once. I find it pretty hard to find time for it and when I do, I just want to relax and spend time with my family OR maybe take a nap. So for now Gavin will be all the workout I need.

I just got back from Florida and though it was fun, it feels good to be home and get some rest. 
Gavin has been teething so Kevin and I didn't get much sleep in Florida.  

Thanks to my niece keeping him entertained, I can finally post.
So how cute is this jumpsuit? Wore it to lunch with Kevin and then wore it to the playground with flats.

Sometimes trying to shoot with Gavin is pretty hard. It's annoying to keep taking the stroller out and sometimes he's very sleepy which turns into fussiness. So last Saturday I decided to shoot in my yard. I think it worked out pretty good, no?

By the way my sister came down to visit my mom from Kansas city. They stopped by yesterday, brought my mom along and spent the whole day with lil G and me. So sad they had to leave, but happy I got to spend with them. 

Tomorrow I'm off to Florida to visit my mother in law and I'm kinda worried of how Gavin will behave. He's not a crier, he's just like to babble, A LOT.  I find it cute, but not sure how the rest of the passengers will feel about it.
To be continued...

Sharing one of my favorite post with you guys before I head back to New York to visit my Mom. 
I just these photos with Gavin. I can't believe how big he's gotten. Everyone thinks he's 1 yr old! Speaking of 1 yr old, I've started working on his birthday invitations. I'm so excited about his birthday theme. It won't be a character, just because kids at this age don't pay attention to that stuff and what if next year he chooses the same character I choose for him this year?  Anyway,  I can't wait for August, too many good things happening.

Hey guys, I wanted to let you know about this project that just launched, The Ribbon Project. I love their concept and of course it's very close to my heart. The Ribbon Project delivers your hopeful messages and positive energy to those battling Cancer and other diseases. I remember feeling hopeless when the doctor told me my Mom had Cancer. Just imagine what these people are going through. Thankfully I had you guys and amazing friends to support me,  the beautiful words of encouragement you guys left for me and my mom helped a lot. So I hope that you can do the same for these people.

All you have to do is visit  The Ribbon Project Facebook page, pick a patient, leave a comment and they'll hand write your message and deliver it to the patient under your name. Isn't that sweet?!

You can learn more about it here. Hope I've motivated you in some way to brighten someones day.
