I can't believe that Karinne is already 7 months old--people aren't kidding when they talk about how quickly kids grow up. It seems like every day she's doing something new! Here are some pictures from her 6-month photo shoot:

I'm still breastfeeding, and we'll keep going as long as she wants. Pumping 2-3x at work every day is a drag, and for the last month I haven't been pumping as much as I used to; if only I were able to stay home with her for the first year (like in Canada!) then I wouldn't have this added stress. It'll be all right though; if push comes to shove, we'll have to start giving her maybe a bottle of formula per day to make up for what I can't pump. It's not the end of the world :)

I went to the gym tonight and walked a little bit longer on the treadmill than I have been; it felt good, like I'm actually making some progress. When I started walking again, I could barely make 20 minutes, and I had to use my inhaler; now I'm up to 27 minutes, walking faster (3.2mph), and I haven't used my inhaler the last 3 times I went. Woohoo! Of course, it's been freaking SUMMER (80 degrees today!) here, so that helps with the asthma.

Now, for the honesty--I came home from the gym to freshly baked chocolate chip cookies :-( I'm sure I don't have to tell you how that went down. I wanted to say no and really just dump them in the trash, but I felt bad because Marc NEVER bakes. So I ate them. Note the word "them"; of course I didn't have just one! Argh. Tomorrow is a new day, right?

She is such a cutie! Good job on the walking more and yes, tomorrow is a new day and another chance to make better choices. Just keep at it!

I'd have eaten the cookies too, you're not alone!
