It's A Brand Spankin' New.....

ME!!!! of late I've been feeling a bit that is not a typo.  That word describes exactly how I feel...mostly about my physical appearance.  I have a sneakin' suspicion it has something to do with the fact that I just had a baby and have since realized my body will never be the same again.  And let's face it....that's a little bit depressing.  I didn't even LOVE my body before the babe, but I'd take it back now in a long as Bails gets to stay.   And since I don't see that happening in the too near future, I need to do something to make me feel sexy  beautiful again. 

I know you're all thinking, "hey Janna, just get off your lazy butt and workout and then you'll look hot again."  Well guess what?  I DID!!  but then I got sick and it stopped for a couple days...or a week...or two.  But don't you worry, I fully plan on starting it up again on Monday.  I just needed a quick fix.  My body will be back in tip top shape very soon because we have big plans for September involving water, a beach, and a bikini.  So are you all ready for this??  My mom and dad are gonna hate me, but sorry!!!  You're not exactly the one I'm trying to feel sexy    beautiful for.  I told Stephen before he left for Toronto that I had a surprise for him when he got home.  And I totally got him.  This is what he left when he decided to desert me for three days. 

and this is what he came home to

BAM!!   How do ya like me now?!?  Pretty sweet eh?  I love it.  I've been dark plenty of times before.  I was for our wedding, and I stare at that picture everyday in my living room....longing for my darker days.  Stephen LOVES!!!! me brunette, so I thought this would be a great way to dive out of my frumph, at least for the time being, and please the husband at the same time.  And I think I can say I accomplished both. 

I was actually a little hesitant as to how Bails would react, if he would still recognize me or scream in disgust.   But he handled it pretty well.

It took him a second...

But then I believe his exact words were, "You're SMOKIN' mom!"  Ah...thanks Bails.

A little shell shocked

We're sexy   beautiful AND cute

I took this picture a couple weeks ago.  I can't believe I forgot to put in on the blog.  SO CUTE!

So there you have it, the new unfrumphified me!!!

On a side note, today Balian is 4 months!!!  CRAZY!!  He has his shots tomorrow.  Totally forgot about it until the Health Clinic lady called me this morning.  NOT looking forward to that.  I'll come back and post all his numbers once I find out tomorrow.

So Balian at four months was 14.5 lbs - 40th percentile
He was 24.5 inches - 50th percentile
His head was in the 25th percentile. 

So he's fairly average except for his cute little head.  He did so good with his shots and has been awake for one out of the last 6 hours.  Poor little guy.  So tuckered out. 

Sunday, April 3, 2011 lonely

So Stephen is in Toronto for the next three days doing some training for work, and I'm extremely jealous....but mostly I'm just lonely.  For a split second i thought FREEDOM!!  Three days to do whatever I want, when I want.   But then as I drove away after dropping him off at the airport I just felt lonely.   And now I'm just delaying going to bed because I hate sleeping alone.  I contemplated buying a ticket and just flying out there myself.  I'd LOVE to visit Toronto.  Unfortunately I'd have to rob a bank in order to fly there.  Seriously....$800 Westjet???  Isn't that a bit much?  Good grief.  So now I'm stuck in the frozen, but slowly thawing, Edmonton....alone.  Good thing Bails is here with me.  That's what we call Balian in case you were wondering. 

Stephen was not excited about this trip.  I don't know why.  He was a little nervous about flying, even though he's done it before.  It probably didn't help that I told him about a story I captioned the night before where part of the airplane roof blew off while 36,000 feet in the air.  No one died though, so it's all good.  He also was sad that I wouldn't be there with him.  We like each other, what can I say.  And me and Bails are both deathly ill, so he felt bad leaving us.  But I hope he tries to enjoy it....just a little bit. So I hope you're having a great time hun, livin' it up for both of us.  I'm there in spirit.  And remember to bring us home a souvenir!

Now an upday for our almost 4-month-old.  HE'S STILL SO CUTE!!!  I just can't stand how cute he is.  He melts my heart everytime he smiles.  Stephen and I just can't get over how adorable he is.  He can do no wrong in our eyes.  We got an official laugh out of him the other day.  It was hilarious.  I think it almost scared him a little bit.  haha  I wish I got it on camera.  He's starting to grab at his toys and play with them.  He's drooling like crazy!   He goes to bed around 8 and sleeps until about 4am, then feeds and back to bed until 9.  He's about 16 pounds.  He's a chunker.  He really is just such a happy baby.  He totally interacts with us and reacts to all our smiles and ridiculous baby talk.  I can't even imagine my life with Balian.  Yup, I said it.  I'm THAT cliche mom.  I don't even care, because it's true.  So here's some pictures of the cutest boy in the world. 

See...I told you he's the cutest boy in the world

I got a new program for editing.  I wish our eyes were really that color.

Cute matching cousins!  They love each other. 

He always gives daddy the biggest smiles.  I love this picture.  I love my boys


He kinda loves me.  Check out our matching squinty eyes.  We're definitely related.

Oh Mister Bails
