Graphic Monday: Weight Watchers Points Plus Daily/Weekly Tracker

Last week I announced the birth of our precious baby boy, William. Now that it's been almost a month since he was born, I'm ready to start tackling some of the excess "baby weight." I've had success with Weight Watchers in the past because it's really easy to do gluten-free and fruits & veggies are unlimited so I never have to go hungry! After my last couple pregnancies I used the official Weight Watchers book to track my points, but recently our local office closed up shop. I looked around online for a simple page to track daily AND weekly points, but I couldn't find anything I liked so I opted to make my own. I use this site to calculate points I don't already know or can't find in the book {I used to have the calculator, but it melted when we left it on top of our toaster oven... whoops!}

William Wesley

I cannot believe it's already been over three weeks since we brought our first little boy into the world! {I'm convinced time goes by progressively faster with each child...} William was born on February 24th - 2 days past his due date - at 2:29pm weighing in at 7lb 2oz {just like Audriana} and measuring at 20 1/4" long. The labour went very smooth... and relatively fast compared to his sisters! We ended up only having to stay one night in the hospital, which was great. We've definitely been enjoying life with this sweet little boy. Hopefully I can update with more pictures soon.


Heartland Farms Fall '14

If you've been following us for any length of time, you know that we have a yearly tradition of visiting Heartland Farms Pumpkin Patch! We actually weren't sure if we'd go this year, but after finding out some cousins were also interested we headed on out! This was probably the warmest time we've gone... which was great!

back: Audri - Wes - Kate
front: Hayden - (cousins) Parker & Bree
showing daddy the animals!
Pumpkin bouncy house! This was the first year Hayden wasn't too scared.... then there was Audri who jumped right in!
Excited for the tractor wagon ride! (way too excited to make a normal face, obviously)
Checking out one of several displays in the hay "maze" (it's actually just a path)

Every year we also utilize the growth chart they have set up... This year they didn't have the platform though, so it appears Hayden didn't grow! (I can assure you, she did ;))

2011 (Hayden 9 months)
2012 (Hayden 21 months)
2013 (Audri 6 mo, Hayden 2+ yrs)
2014 (Audri 18 mo, Hayden 3 yrs) & cousins!

The girls slept great after playing hard all afternoon... we'll have to see how baby brother likes it next year!


Big Sisters!
