Well it's been awhile since I update anything on the website because I got sucked into Facebook.  Wink

We are all doing well.  Emma is enjoying school to the fullest and is going for a preschool screening on Monday.  Maria had her 9 month checkup and is doing well.  She started crawling and getting into everything.

I had a scare about two weeks ago.  I woke up with a pretty bad headache, but just figured I needed my morning Diet Pepsi.  Next thing I knew I could only see clearly in a small circle in front of me.  About 10 minutes later, I couldn't feel my left arm and the left side of my face.  Luckily the doctor got me in quickly.  Matt was able to come home and go with me.  Mom and Dad came over to watch the girls.  The doctor was pretty sure it was a migraine, but ordered a MRI to be on the safe side.  All came back clear on the MRI and now we just have to figure out the migraine part.  I have only had 1 more since then so time will tell I guess.

I am officially starting the path to a healthier me and have Matt on board to make it a family effort.  I joined a Step-n-Sculpt class at the Rec Center for a couple of reasons.  One to get into better shape so I am healthier for my girls.  Two to get some Mommy time without worrying about the girls.  I love being a stay at home mom, but after a year I finally realized that some Mommy time would be a good thing for everyone (maybe I won't snap so easily).  I had my first class tonight and I think I am going to be really sore tomorrow.

I also was thinking of signing up for Weight Watchers online.  Matt had done this when I was pregnant with Maria and it seemed to be a pretty useful tool.  While he was using it, he was losing weight.  When he stopped being accountable for what he put in his body the weight loss seemed to halt.  So I did a little research and came across a blog where someone talked about The Daily Plate.  I looked up some information on it and it seemed to fit the bill for me like the Weight Watchers online, but was much cheaper.  It is through livestrong.com.
