It's a talky talky talky boy

I love it when he talks to me!
(If you can bear to watch the whole video, he does the funniest flat-line smile at the end)

The Green Smoothie

I am doing the ol "eat better" New Years resolution. I am still breast feeding so I'm not doing anything extreme but I decided to start making my sister Lucy's Green Smoothie. It consists of spinach (or kale), strawberries, blueberries, peaches, mangoes, bananas and chia seeds. The base is 1 cup water blended with a handful of spinach and then add any fruits you like to make it taste better. Even though it looks disgusting, it's actually quite tasty! In addition to drinking this smoothie every morning, I have completely cut out soda. This is a huge thing for me and so far I've been successful. If I can make it to February I will be pretty proud of myself!

Jax continues to grow and entertain me. Our new game is to look at ourselves in the mirror while I call him a silly boy. He cracks up laughing at this. Every morning is a surprise because I put him to sleep on his stomach at night but when I pick him up in the morning, he's on his back! Such a clever guy. I don't really know how he does it because I've never actually seen him do it. He never fails to make me smile and I really enjoy spending everyday with him, even if we are doing nothing.

I sure love my laughin boy!

NYE 2013

What a wonderful year 2012 was! Heath completed his first year of teaching, we found out I was pregnant, travelled and snowboarded in Japan, Heath won a trip to London to see the FA Cup, welcomed our beautiful boy Jax, spent three weeks with my parents (I haven't seen them in almost 2 years!), celebrated Halloween and Thanksgiving (two of my favorite American holidays) and finished up the year celebrating Christmas with the Harts and enjoying Jade and Aaron's new pool!

To welcome the New Year, we had a little party with our close group of friends. James and Amy recently moved back from Melbourne and hosted the party at their house. I have to say that it was the best party I've been to in a lonnnggg time! It was nice to put Jax to bed and have a fun filled night dancing, singing, playing poker, kissing, break dancing and just spending time with friends.

 Of course, we had to get a picture with Jax all dressed up before he went to bed :)
 James and Amy making the virgin pina coladas. Yum!!

 Weston was eating all the lollies before everyone got there
 Alex and Angela and their son Riley
