Halfway there...

Today I hit the halfway mark in a couple areas of my life.

First, I'm halfway through my summer school classes! So far, I have an A and a B+.

I'm also halfway through my medically directed weight loss program.

The three precious words I've been waiting for...

This morning, when I was buckling Miya into her car seat, she said "I wuv ou".

My heart melted and I started to cry.

I love you too Miya Mei, oh how I love you too...

Conversations with my personal trainer.

To set the scene, envision my big ol' fat, tall, outta shape body hunched up on some weird abdominal machine mimicking the moves of a clam...

Trainer Kate: "Keep going and squeezing Sara, nice and slow"

Me: "uggghhh, this is hard"

Trainer Kate: "7 more"

Me: "I don't think my stomach muscles are very strong"

Trainer Kate: "Well, they shouldn't be! You just had a baby a year ago."

Me: hahahaha laughing

Trainer Kate: "What? Why are you laughing?"

Me: "We are an adoptive family, I didn't give birth"

Trainer Kate: "Oh! That's great, I didn't know that."

Me: "So, really, I'm just in really bad shape and I can't use the I gave birth excuse..."

Trainer Kate: hahahahah laughing "Two more then Sara and then hold it!"

Me: "shit."

a.m. shenanigans...

For the most part, Miya has been sleeping through the night in her toddler bed for about a week now! Yay Miya! When she wakes up in the morning, she will gather and haul everything that was in her bed with her down the hall into my room. Her arms are completely full w/ baby, blanket, pig, Kai Lan, another blanket and her pillow. It really is hilarious.

This morning she had a change of heart.

I was in the shower, rinsing my hair (eyes closed) at around 6:00a.m. when I heard "HI!"...which scared the crap outta me, because I'm still not used to the fact that she will get out of her bed and wander into my room. I opened my eyes and there she was, standing in the bathroom with her baby and big frog xylophone toy. She then sat on the bathroom floor and played her xylophone for the remainder of my shower. Hilarious.
