Rachel and weight loss

Her sister steals the stage a lot right now, but this little girl is growing by leaps and bounds.  She can sit in the tri-pod (supported by her hands) and loves to kick and splash in the bathtub.  She focuses really hard on whatever she is holding onto and loves that she can grab the things she wants (like her sister's hair).

Speaking of her sister, Rachel loves Elizabeth!  She lights up when she sees her and will stop whatever she's doing when she hears her voice.  It is so sweet to see their relationship develop.

She also loves rice cereal and sweet potatoes.  We move on to green beans next! We've been trying to work with the beginner sippy because I want her to take in a little water with the solid foods.  So far, she really doesn't want anything to do with it...which is in complete contrast to Elizabeth, who would do anything to get her hands on the baby's sippy.  

The weight loss part is in regards to me...not my child!  I am so excited that I'm within 10 lbs of my pre-baby weight!  I've been working really hard in the gym, but it wasn't until I focused on my nutrition that I really began to see changes.  It's funny how we crave control in our lives, yet we are so unwilling to control what we put in our mouths.  My husband has been so patient with me through the complaints of this process, but I really feel that the end is in sight.  I may fit in my summer clothes yet!
