So, I'm 30....ack! I made a promise to myself that at 30 I would do P90X with Dan, but I was going to wait until March 1 to start. Dan did this program a few months ago and lost 15lbs and said that he was feeling much more fit. I've always had a hard time working out. I think it's because I swam for 12 years, I wanted a break. So, I just had a 12 year break. Back to working out.

This morning we were doing our fitness test. Basically we were doing push ups, pull ups, wall sits, etc. Elliott was very interested in what we were up to. After Dan did his pull ups, Elliott walked over to the door and lifted his arms up - meaning he also wanted to hang from the pull up bar. After push ups he did his own little version. After our wall sits he walks over to where I was and sits down next to me with his back to the wall. It was too funny. Here is a short video of his push ups. He's also obsessed with Owls, and I got him to say it on video.

In other news, Elliott and I were both sick right after our last blog post. I thought he had croup, but I'm not convinced of it now. Though, he was coughing a lot and we had more long nights than I liked. We are both finally feeling good. I also turned 30 and Dan was more than generous with a birthday present for me. I got a new fridge. While you might say that's not very personal, it is to me! I love my new stainless french-door fridge. Thanks Dan, you are the best!! My sister in law and soon to be brother in law - Lauren and Justus - got me a cookbook. So far I've made blueberry muffins and peanut butter cookies...both were fabulous. I might have to break the P90X diet and continue to try out recipes. Thanks guys!

Okay, I'm tired after working out for the first time, I think it's time for me to get to bed.

Love the pic of him looking out the window! I can't believe he is getting so big. You know what that means...time for another one!
