1/2 way through...

5 weeks through my Challenge program and I'm down 21 pounds and I've lost 18" (cumulative measurements). Pretty cool. Thinking my jeans are definitely getting a bit roomy, which is great. Contemplating doing the 3-Day walk for breast cancer this summer in Detroit-3 days, 60 miles! Figuring it would be an awesome challenge, and that i'll be in even better shape by then.

Penny is crawling all over the place and pulling up and even starting to cruise around the furniture. She also has hit the attachment phase where she would really rather that I carry her around than set her down to play. Loves her puffs (Mike's been calling them baby crack-which has kind of stuck--just hoping Jane doesn't start talking about how we give the baby 'crack' when she's chatting with her preschool teachers!)

It is a very sad day today, we'll be attending the funeral for Mathew Cieslinski this afternoon. He is the son of our close friends Mike and Lori, he was born over 2 months early, and fought very hard for 3 months. He will be missed tremendously. We are grateful for the time they had, but wish it would have been much more.

It is a beautiful day with spring in the air...
