Diet
I didn't do a great job this last month; my heart just wasn't in it and my motivation level has waned. I knew that I had this Transformer in the bag and I know that didn't help. However, I did not have my other Transformer round in the bag and I failed that one's current round. I'm mad at myself for letting it happen but I'm trying to channel my anger into productivity and plan my eating better. It's working so far, but I still have two weeks to go before the next weigh-in.

Exercise
I finally conceded defeat with regards to planning my own training for the 5K on May 1st; I don't have time to do a good enough job so I signed up for a training plan with RunKeeper. I'm loving not having to do anything except follow the planned runs.

Cecilia and Mommy: 12 Months

I can hardly believe it; Cecilia is one year old now! It's so amazing that she's gone from a screeching little baby to an adorable, goofy little toddler all in the span of 52 weeks. There's nothing I currently enjoy more than watching her toddle around the house, exploring, investigating and just generally checking it all out.  A year ago, I was just trying to survive but now I'm enjoying it all and looking for fun activities we can do together.
Oh hi Mama! I got my posse and my balloon with me.

Really Mama? We have to do this again? Didn't you get the shot the first time?
Likes
  • Food! She likes so many different things now: eggs, cheese, prunes, strawberries, yogurt. She's gotten really good at chewing.
  • Her Wubbanub pacifiers 
  • Mister Lamby and he still needs a bath, badly.
  • Tiny Panda - she's kind of obsessed with tiny panda.
  • Her favorite bath toy, Mister Beavy the Purple Beaver
  • Pandas in general
  • Books - she's currently obsessed with Chu's Day by Neil Gaiman which shockingly (not) features a panda
  • Playing Hide and Seek with Mama and peeking around corners
  • Playing with Charlie - she still likes to feed him treats and he still treats her like his life will end if he accidentally hurts her
  • Walking all over the house, she's a free range baby! She loves to stand and look out our sliding glass doors and look for birds.
  • Dusting - she's memorized where Grammy stores the Swiffer duster and will walk into her room after Grammy has left for the week, steal it from the drawer and dust things. 
Dislikes
  • Having her nails trimmed - I don't think this is ever going to change, or maybe it will when she understands the concept but then maybe it'll just be a battle of wills. Who knows.
  • Bananas
  • Having her face wiped

Basic Baby Stats
  • Weight: 16lbs 15oz (+5.2 oz)
  • Length: 29.25" (+0.5")
  • Head Circumference:45.3 cm (+1.3 cm)

Mommy
I'm in such a completely different head space today than I was a year ago and it's pretty astonishing. I don't really have much more to say about me so I think for the second year of these posts, we're going to leave off the Mommy portion!
