Baby's first green smoothie and a 53 degree Thursday!

- I have never been into green smoothies until this week. I don't know what happened. I became obsessed. I have had one every single day. I use THIS recipe (but substitute greek yogurt with just regular fat free vanilla yogurt- sorry for all you greek yogurt lovers- I'm not a fan!) but you can really add whatever you want to it. I just throw in random veggies and fruits I have in my fridge.
Ryan smacks his lips at everything I eat, so naturally I gave him a taste. He loved it. He wanted more and more. (probably not the best idea to be feeding him on our bed haha) 
If he struggles eating his veggies later in life- I know how to get them in his body! 
This is our favorite activity ever. I am in heaven because it seriously makes him so happy. 

My sweet baby was 16.8 pounds at the doctor this week. If he gets any heavier I will not be able to carry his carseat any longer.  Ha either that or I really need to up my weight workouts.

Ryan has a pretty sweet mohawk goin on tonight. His hair is growing fast these days!

Okay- Say hello to my love/ hate relationship. Most mornings consist of this.
My husband and I have them memorized, we have done them so many times but they never get old- they kill me every time. You tube "Insanity warm-up" you will see!
(Shaun T. is crazy)

I almost stepped on this snake today on a walk with Ryan.  If you knew my fear of snakes, you would know that I almost went into cardiac arrest.

TODAY was 53 degrees! It's not every day that you get to wear a coat and a baby moose sweater in Houston.
We took full advantage of it this afternoon.
Happy Thursday!
