I joined Jasmine's end of the summer challenge.
She is hosting the #Fleurtysummerchallenge, this challenge is all about accountability.

I came up with 5 goals that I thought were important to get me healthy.

1. EAT Healthy (No Junk Food: Candy, Soda, Ice Cream, Cake...)
2. Go for a Walk 5x a week
3. No Scale (I won't be weighing myself at home)
4.Drink at least 120 oz of water a day 
5. Walk at least 8,000 steps a day / 5x a week

So for the next five weeks I will be looking at eating healthy and walking more. When I first thought about joining this challenge all I could think about for goals was to calorie count.... As a breastfeeding mother I didn't want to count calories and get obsessed with that and end up hurting my milk supply.

Liam: One Month

 I am One Month Old!

I can't believe that it has already been a month since we welcomed our Little Man into the world. 
I have been soaking up my time with him before I head back to work next week :(
When I head back to work my mom and aunt will be watching him for Dan and I.

This is what Liam has to say:
There have been so many things that I have experienced in my first month of life.
I had a slight case of jaundice my first week of life, and had to have my blood drawn twice for that and then more blood taken to retest my thyroid! (This was upsetting for Mommy and Daddy, seeings as they squeeze their poor little heels 1 drop at a time)

I can now lift my head and hold for a few seconds.
I grunt and coo a lot.
I kick my legs and arms all the time, and I am very fascinated by my hands and feet.

I loves playing with my "gym", swing my arms and kicking my feet at the octopus and whale.
I visited the beach. I did not like my feet being dipped into the lake...
I have also gone out to restaurants, gone shopping, and to the county fair.
