A month of monologues

Howdy there blog world. We decided to cut cable and internet here at fort fordham to save a little money. That is why I have been slacking in my monologues.

Brad got a job at Comcast whhich he starts on Monday. It turns out we will get cable and internet for free now! He is pretty happy to be getting out of the production industry, and I am happy to are him in a few more dress shirts!

Athens is doing spectacular. She holds her head up like a champ. She is much more mellow than her sister, she is happy just laying in her swing all day.

Caydance has become quite the little parrot. Some of the words she picks up on aren't the greatest but I have to admit its still a little funny. She is also a mini mommy. Last week she kept saying "Tuh tuh stop dat ah I tude" Hopefully that passes soon.

As for me, I had my Dr appointment today. I have lost 31 pounds in 6 weeks and that puts me at 11 pounds lighter than when I got pregnant! Go me!
