Funny and Fitness

While I continue to play catch up here's a funny video of Mr. B trying to keep Adalyn awake. 

Which is nearly impossible by the way. 

When girlfriend is tired she is going to sleep and there's nothing you can do about it.

For a while she was sleeping most of the day and then decide to be all awake and smiley from like 9:45-1ish. 

This mama is tired at that point. Let me remind you that my bedtime pre-baby was around 9:30/10 so all this partying til 1 in the morning was a problem.

As much as I loved seeing these bright eyes and smiles, I'd prefer to see them in the day time!



So I decided we have to try and keep her up at least from 7-9:30. 

So we strip her down, we bounce her, play with her, talk to her etc etc and this is what we get. 





Operation "Stay awake it's not bedtime yet" didn't quite go as planned. 

Since then we have a new bedtime routine that seems to be working well. 
She even slept through the night for the first time on Saturday night!
And now I see this face at reasonable hours during the day


Now, onto the fitness...
I have joined the bandwagon and joined my fitness pal. 
So if you're on it send me a request: jpsmelser is my username.
I always go over my calories and I haven't worked out yet- but I'm a great encourager :) 
I've also lost 4 pounds so far! 
So if you're on there- friend me, if not check it out and join! 
It's free, they have apps for the iPad and iPhone and probably the other smart phones too
AND
the coolest feature ever: it has a barcode scan so you just scan the food you're going to eat and it plugs it all in for you!
