How long can I go without blogging?

Evidently, a LONG time! Well we had weather issues and friends staying over with no heat and just when I thought life was going to be normal again, I got a call. My grandfather (greatest man ever - Evie's middle name is in honor of him) discovered he had a large brain tumor and was getting confused. So Evie and I took her first plane trip to see him and my family. We were gone for about a week. It was stressful and kind of awful but Evie brightened eveyone's day. The tumor is cancer. It is treatable but not curable. The treatment has caused kidney failure so now they are looking for a new treatment. This has been a rough year so far for my family. My other grandfather passed away the week before the tumor discovery.

Since being home, I have been working like mad on getting stuff done for my class but mostly I have been obsessed with this:

Evie, of course! She is the little one. The other gorgeous girl is one of best bud's twin daughters. She was so sweet to let Evie swing with her (it was the only way Evie could fit). The other twin daughter also let Evie swing with her but only for a minute because she wanted to go higher! So cute and funny!! I heart those girls.

I spend all my time I can with my daughter. I can't get enough. She is awesome. She is now 4 months. Healthy and starting foods. We have tried sweet potatoes and carrots and we LOVE them.

I have been working out about 3 to 4 times a week. However, I am still sleep deprived and that makes my eating kind of crappy - mostly on the weekends. So in other words, I am still fat. I will not step on a scale. What a wuss! My clothes fit a little better but I am not going down in sizes at all at this point in time.

I will get my act together again someday but I am just trying to enjoy every moment with Evie and not let them slip by. Hope everything is well for all my bloggy friends!

I was so happy to see that you posted. That little one of yours is super cute. So sorry about your g-pa. I can understand what you are going through. My grandmother had something similar to what your g-pa has. I understand the weight thing too. I have gained about 5 in the last week or so. Uh..... We have our good weeks and our bad I guess. Keep plugging away. I know I am will.
