For several months (half a year) now, I've been trying to get myself back into shape. I'm doing this for many reasons, but one of the most important is that I want to continue to be able to lift my three kids. They aren't getting lighter. That's me at the end, by the way. And you can make any photo bigger by clicking on it. Pictures courtesy of my husband. He managed to stay off my back. This time.
I can't believe my kids can do the three high without me now. Chase is finally strong enough to anchor. I'm impressed. Not as much by the three high as I am by my husband. He managed to get a shot of all of them smiling at the same time. They don't even look nervous!
I haven't been able to hold Marina up on my hands since I was pregnant with Sierra. For some reason, the doctor didn't want me to lift her while I was pregnant. I don't know if it's clear that I'm on my knees. Her feet are in my hands. I'm not ready to do this standing!
I've still got it! I had to reconfigure the pyramid since it's a little scary when you are nine and you have to be at the top of a four high, so I set them up all along my back. This is much more comfortable than it probably appears. My body feels very strong this year, even if I haven't dropped the pounds I was hoping to. I just need to keep telling myself to keep trying. I'm doing great!
