Tot Shred

I snapped some photos of the girls doing Jillian Michael's Shred with me.

I seriously had to capture the moment because they were so into it and too darn cute.

I was seriously wishing I had stamina like a 2 year old and calves like a 5 year old as I took my place behind these two workout pros.

Laney Rae got out her "mat"....aka The Sheep Pillow.

Kaylyn got out her water bottle...aka Raw Milk with some cocoa powder.

Laney Rae decided she needed to work towards her abs of steel.

But, first she had to loosen up by doing some knee circles.

And more knee circles.

And more knee circles. Because can knee circles get any cuter than this?

Her push-ups are perfection;)

And so are hers. Kaylyn's tongue is what makes her push-ups extra perfect.

Ruthie was quite entertained by watching all of her favorite people partake in all sorts of weird gyrations.

Laney Rae has found that holding her cheeks really does the trick in helping her get through her crunches.

And when its all said and done, you get legs like this to adorn beautifully with stickers. Ha!

Laney Rae's legs are seriously my most favorite part of her. They are absolutely squishy and wonderful!

And this momma ended up getting no workout time in whatsoever because I just HAD to capture these two in all of their workout splendor. Excuses, excuses!

I also think its pretty hilarious that Laney Rae is missing her shirt in the above photos, but missing her pants in the latter photo.

This is typical around here. She is our free spirit. It's a monumental accomplishment if we even make it through the whole day with one stitch of clothing on at all.

We once had a visit from a preacher during potty training.

She totally mooned him.

When I potty train my girls, I put long dresses with no underwear underneath. You may call it immodest, but I call it practical. Except, I do think I should have remembered to put some drawers on her before the preacher showed up. That, I regret.

On a separate occasion we had a visit from the UPS man. Laney Rae ran to the sidewalk to greet him (when you live on the farm, the littlest things excite you). The UPS dude noticed that she wasn't wearing shoes outside.

"Where are her shoes?" He asked in a confused voice looking at my baby girl's feet pressed up against the warm concrete.

To which I explained,"You are just lucky she is wearing undies."

I should not have said "undies" in the presence of a UPS dude. That, I regret.

But, it was the truth.

There is our duck! I kept looking for it in the diaper I know. Every time we came over LR would always play with it...too cute. And by the way that was our sock! Thanks for insisting it was mine.

We have given up on trying to get Colin to wear pants. Now we are working on wearing pants at OTHER people's homes. He likes your house???? Off come the pants!

LOL, enjoyed these pictures! I remember when my now 5 year old niece was being potty trained and my family met my now brother-in-law for the first time at a restaurant for my now almost 88 year old grandmother's birthday and I think my niece was about Laney Rae's age and she had just got big girl panties and she lifted up her dress in front of my brother-in-law in public to show off her big girl panties, LOL!

My youngest is the same way. She's either nearly naked or wearing 35 shirts/skirts/scarves at once. Raising girls is a hoot! :)

Rachel said...

That is precious! I love watching Josiah try to do it. Your girls are so determined! And I hear you with the clothing--Annalise has learned how to take off her shirts and she is shirtless most of the time.

I agree with Grandma, we know KK has a camera. I think that is an excellent idea.

Too cute!

so cute! geesh, I wish my squishy legs looked 1/2 as cute!!! Potty training little boys is even crazier if they decide that every person they meet needs to 1) hear about their penis, 2) experience their penis first hand.. aye carumba.. talk about your show and tell!

FPF....thanks! Those are actually the original ceilings in this old farmhouse. We remodeled a few years ago and these were deemed "off limits". I kept them bc I loved them so very much. They are solid wood just like a wood floor would be installed so you don't have to worry about falling through if you are up in the attic;)
