Ava Grace

Just a quick newest grandbaby has been born!

Ava Grace arrived Oct 15 at about 8 pm. Her stats are: 7 lbs 12 oz, 20.5 inches long. Blonde hair, fair skin, and a good set of lungs! Man! Can this little girl cry loud! LOL.

In this photo, she is about 1 hour old, snuggled in the arms of her son.

I will be going to spend a few days with them next week when Mike goes back to work and Victorias father and step mom (and their 2 kids) are gone back to their home. It may be a bit more difficult to stick to my plan while there, but I will also have to be chasing big brother Kaden around so maybe that will make up for the difference. LOL.

As far as my weight loss efforts are concerned......I am still on my way down, slowly. I still have a long way to go to incorporate daily exercise into my routine (I am getting quite tired of saying that) and I am beginning to realize that I need to do more cooking when I am the only one at home. I used to cook a meal for myself every evening and eat from a pot of soup at lunch time. Lately, I have been eating from the pot of soup twice a day. Convenient. Realatively healthy. But lazy.....and I must get rid of my lazy demon if I am going to start moving enough to increase my rate of weight loss. Also, I am likely not eating enough because of this habit. When Jim is home, of course, I cook meals for supper. I always expect to gain when he is around because I eat more....but I usually continue to lose.

Anyway, this was supposed to be a quick announcement post....I have another grandbaby running around here - I am babysitting for the day so his mommy can study for some final exams...I sure should not be spending too much time on the computer!
