Fitness Elevated

As many of you know, Jared and I have become quite involved in Crossfit. Last year Jared competed in the regionals as well as sectionals and did quite well. Now it's my turn. I have officially signed up to participate in a local Crossfit competition on the 5th. If any of you have ever thought that it would be nice to see me get the crap kicked out of me be ther on the 5th at Highland High! It'll be all day, and I should end up getting killed in the end! I'm really nervous and yet excited! I've worked hard to get where I'm at and I am hoping that it's enough to finish and still have fun! Stay posted as I will be adding more about how things go!

The kids

So Here are some more of the pictures that I took for my sweet mother-in-law's birthday. We loaded a digital photo frame full of the kids pictures and gave it to her. She loved it. I don't know who wouldn't love it though... just look at these kids! And the pictures arn't even that great of quality! Ha ha!

4 months

McCallum is just growing and growing! I can hardly believe he is the same kid we brought home from the hospital! He is just so much bigger and so different than he was when he was so new! Now he is just turning into a little person--you know what I mean! He eats solids, he trys to crawl, he smiles, he laughs, and he just keeps out growing the clothes in his closet!

So here is my favorite shot of Mac at 4 months. I will have more, but they will have to wait because I don't want to spoil part of my mother-in-laws birthday present.

We recently went to McCallum's 4 Month doctor's visit. I can hardly believe how big he is now! His head was 16.3 cm which is small, or the 25% for his age. He weighed in at 15.3 pounds! That's a lot heavier than I was anticipating. This weight lands him in the 75% group. However it was his height that blew me away. Remember, Mac's birth mother was only 4' 11" so I was thinking he would be on the smaller end. However he measured in the 90th percentile for height. He is 26"! Big boy!! I think he's so big because he eats like his dad! This little boy puts away 6 oz every three hour with or without rice cereal in it! He is such a big eater! Some times he will even take down a tub of solids before taking down a 4-6 oz bottle! Little piggy!

McCallum is also a member of the Solid eating team! He is enjoying his foods too! He loves sweet potatoes, carrots (as seen here), squash, apples, bananas, peaches... and will enjoy more as time goes on I'm sure!

I can't believe it's already 2011! I honestly let time get away from me! I remember being in middle school and walking home with my friends talking about how the year 2000 was going to be so cool. We were all talking about how the world was going to get all confused and lost because computers were not programed to handle the year 2000! Look at us now... I am almost 26, finished my bachelors, married, finished my husbands bachelors, and have two kids! Where did the time go!

With the new year I am thinking of adding a fun little thing to my blog. You see, Ryan got a little camera for Christmas, and she loves to use it. So I was thinking of posting the pictures that she takes every now and again.
This is the world through Ryan's eyes!
