Saturday Foto: My Wife rocks!

Here’s a little picture that I snapped just the other night before going to bed:

I sure can’t think of a better mother for my two little girls! I think this picture pretty well illustrates Naomi’s commitment to taking care of our girls, and she does a dang good job at it!

More evidence of her awesome-ness: since 2 days after Lily was born (that being over 5 weeks now), Naomi has only missed ONE day working out!  She set herself a goal before Lily was born, that she would start an exercise program that was perfectly tailored to a mom that just delivered an 8 lb bowling ball! She wanted to go walking every day, the first week after the birth, it would just be for 10 minutes at a time.  Sometimes that meant limping out to the mailbox and back… but she did it!  The second week it bumped up to 20 minutes, the third week it was 30 minutes, etc. And like I said, she’s only missed one day that entire time!!  One night at 10:30 PM she realized that she hadn’t gone yet, and trucked out to the gym at our apt complex and walked for 50 minutes on the treadmill before coming home.

She’s a great example of setting a goal and sticking to it, and I’m sure proud of her!

I agree that Naomi is a ROCK! That's so awesome about her goal to exercise. Keep it up Omi! You're the bomb! (and exceptionally hot for a woman who just birthed an 8 lb bowling ball : )

Love that first pic. Except the book. I hated Babywise! But that is just me, a lot of people love it. I just felt like it was guilt-trip-mania. Sorry but my kid is not gonna be messed up if he doesn't have playpen time. haha anyway, awesome job on the walking. Love the image of hobbling to the mailbox, I'm looking forward to it!

Wow Naomi good job. You look great too. Do you really push both strollers around? You're not helping my case to get a double stroller :) jk. Seriously though you totally rock. I need to be better about keeping the goals I set
