Yan the strong girl!

I'm really attempting to get some better lifestyle habits, including some more exercise. When I've been successful losing weight in the past (okay, about 10 years ago) I was doing heavy duty cardio and strength training. So I decided that I wanted to get some small weights for home. I was hoping to find some used ones, and I did find a little pair (3.5 lbs) at the thrift store. I brought them home and showed Yan. I showed her how to lift them up and do reps up to 10. She's been working on her counting and decided to try on her own. She lifted them up, but by two she was struggling so this is how the counting went: one, two, three, TEN! She promptly set them down. I love her style!

Hey Jenn! Glad you stopped by. I hope you're doing well. I need to read through your blog and catch up. Are you still adopting another little girl?

Hey, I saw you on Mothering.com in the Special Needs forum. I was like, "I know her!!" I meant to contact you... but you know how that goes.

Good to hear from you!

Hello. You don't know me, but I saw your comment on Paul Cardall's blog. I have a daughter with a heart defect as well. We adopted her out of a NICU in Utah. You are actually the first adoptive mom of a heart hero that I have run into so I just had to stop and say hi! Yan is beautiful, thanks for letting me get to know her a little through your blog. My Emma had open heart surgery this past May at 6 months old. She was left with severe leakage at the Pulminary Valve because they had to cut through it to ensure blood flow. Anyway I hope you don't mind me stopping by your blog to say hello.
