My boy

This was my test to see if email-to-blog works...it does! I'm hoping that giving myself ways to blog on the go will help me to actually post something here once in a while. This was my adorable baby boy during the K-9 Kerplunk last weekend. You'd never know by the way that he's a standard schnauzer, the way that he loves the water and playing fetch. Of course, that's the only reason that he's sitting so pretty for the camera.

Limber Up

My 8 week yoga class starts tonight. Now that I'm able to run again, I need to be sure to stay loosened up so that I don't injure myself again. And I really like yoga.

Truman is ONE!

It's hard to believe that he's already a year old!

We had a small birthday party here at the house last weekend with some of his baby friends. He LOVED the cake.

Truman is growing fast. At his one year pediatrician visit, he measured as follows:
Head: 19 inches (90-95%)
Height: 31 inches (75-90%)
Weight: 22 lbs, 10.5 oz (50%)
Yes, he's going to be tall and lanky like Craig :)

Truman's Chrismas Gift to Craig and I was WALKING! He is fast and cruising all over the place now.

I swear he gets cuter by the day. On his birthday, he was announced as the "Cute Kid of the Week" by Moms Out Loud, a Dallas-area mommy group. And he's been entered in to a few other cute baby contests. In fact, you can vote for him to win the Parenting.com Baby Model Search by clicking on HERE (you can vote once per day, so visit often!).

Now that Truman is feeding himself, he and the dogs are becoming best friends because he's gotten good at 'sharing' his food with them.

He's babbling a lot but hasn't said his first discernable word yet. I'm betting that it will be Momma or Dog. We'll see.

One thing I forgot to mention is that I need to pay particular attention this year to my outlook and perspective. I choose, in 2010, to see the good in all situations. I choose to see the best in those around me.

Particularly, instead of thinking that the world is out to get me, I recognize that all of us are imperfect and sometimes we all make mistakes. Sometimes those mistakes result in consequences that hurt me unintentionally. But just as I hope I'm offered forgiveness when I mistakenly or inadvertently cause others pain, I will offer forgiveness and understanding and grace to others.

"For surely I know the plans that I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for your welfare and not for destruction to give you a future with hope."
-Jerimiah 29:11
