Recent Desmond Pictures

After a long, fun day celebrating Addison's second birthday... he's deep in meditation. "Don't tell Mommy I gave you Pepsi. Ack! She caught us!" Working on strengthening those muscles. Yeay for tummy time! I'm a Disney fan just like my folks.

Now about this Baby Weight

Time to get back in shape! I'm glad I was doing Baby Boot Camp when I was still pregnant, but now it's time to really kick it into gear and loose this extra weight. Gina does a great job putting together fun but "kickin' my booty" workouts. I also enjoy meeting other moms and swapping baby stories. It's good to realize I'm not alone!

Obama's Politics of Change?

Obama keeps talking about the politics of change. Yet, many of the statements he's making are just openly divisive. Is this change? For instance the below clip shows Obama accusing the McCain camp of racism. The McCain camp has NEVER brougth Obama's race up as an issue. The only one talking about Obama's race is Obama. Blatant lies like this don't amount to change in my book.

Here is Demond in a couple sweaters that I made for him. With the cooler days, it's time to pull them out. Thankfully they fit!

My Guys

I bought this shirt for Desmond when I was still pregnant because it instantly reminded me of Davin. Here are the two guys in my life. Aren't they absolutely adorable ...I mean, handsome?

Why I won't be voting for Obama

So, the election is just 61 days away. At first I was somewhat beside myself as to whom I would vote for. I was not really jazzed about either candidate. However as I have started studying the candidates I come to realize that I could not in good conscience vote for Barack Obama. I'm not to thrilled about some of McCains views on economic issues, and immigration. However, I cannot say that I morally disagree with McCain. However, Barack Obama stands for so many things that I disagree with that I cannot vote for him. Such as ...
  1. Barack Obama voted down the Born Alive Infant Protection Act twice. This act would protect babies that are born alive as a result of a botched abortion. Barack was the only senetor in his state to vote against it. Even the other liberal senetors voted for it. How could anyone not care for a child that was born alive. Instead these babies are just left to die.
  2. Barack Obama's ties to terrorist William Ayers are befuddling. WHy would he associate, even call a friend, someone who blew up the capitol and preformed various other terrorist acts. When asked about it on September 11th Ayers responded that he did not regret what he did, and wish they had done more. He is totally unrepentant about his actions. Barack Obama has tried to justify his friendship by saying that he was only eight when Ayers commited his acts. Who cares!? Whether he wa eight, eightee, or eighty. Why would you consort with a man that is proud of his terrorist actions. Presidents should not consort with these kinds of people.
  3. Barack Obama's tax plan would increase taxes 20%.
  4. Satements such as "if my daughter were to make a mistake I don't want them punished with a baby." Babies are not a punishment even if they are born to teenage mothers. Who in their right mind would call a baby a punishment?
I could go on, but I don't want this post to get too long. Like I said at first I was not to keen on McCain either but after the Saddleback event I am beginningto like him more. He answered each question very well, while Obama talked around all the tough issues without really saying anything. I'm curious, if you are planning on voting for Barack Obama over John McCain why is that? Comments welcomed.
