Baby Rolls, Clothes, and Mangos

Austin is not a chubby baby... I guess that's good for him in the long run- but who doesn't love thick baby arms and legs??? He's got the perfect round face though.
He has minimal signs of the classic mid thigh baby roll. But it's still there.
I can't get over it. I try to dress him in (baby boy) leggings, short baby shorts, or leave his leggies bare as much as possible. I won't lie and say I didn't buy him a pair of aqua baby girl shorts. Baby boy shorts are just sooo long... I want his shorts to come well above his knee so I can enjoy those sweet legs! So, I have picked up a shameless habit of searching the baby girls' section as well as the baby boys' when I am out shopping. Boys can wear aqua shorts, too! Or yellow... or kelly green...

You can't tell me these shorts are only for girls.
 I can't even.

This week we made up a "Martinez Family Budget" spreadsheet. My husband is the cutest.
I can't believe we've been married over a year and parents for 5 months and haven't had one until now. We now have an incredibly intense spreadsheet taped to our fridge- and it wasn't until we did this that I realized Duke, yes Duke, has a larger budget than his brother. Talk about picking favorites, Jennifer.
In my defense, Austin is still on formula and minimal baby food- and we're still working on the generous amounts of diapers we received as gifts... so his expenses are easily managed for the time being.
The dog?
He's an expensive little shit rascal. And obviously, spoiled.
Yeah, that's where I sleep. Ugh.

Since Austin's first experience with the bananas, he has had peas, pears, and possibly a nibble of pineapple upside down cake. Next is mangos. This stud taste tested Austin's mangos to make sure they were tasty enough. And by taste tested, I mean we bought two at the store and came home with one.
Daddy of the year.
I won't tell anyone about that time he dumped frozen yogurt on his son's head.
BTW, the husband has dropped 20 pounds overnight in the past 2 months.
 I've been looking through old scrapbooks, and after crying over flipping through old pictures, I have officially decided it's time to lose my baby weight. Austin is almost 5 months old, and I really can't justify my extra 25 pounds any longer. I was one of those dummies who didn't exercise during pregnancy and gained 50+ pounds. Christ. Thankfully, 30 came off with having Austin and then breastfeeding. But, these last 25 are lingering like the plague. 
I figure if I tell people I am trying to lose weight, I will be held more accountable than if I try to keep it a secret. Here's to looking 21!


  1. Austin looks so cute in those shorts! Did he like the mangos better than the bananas? Tehehe

  2. I know! He hasn't tried the mangos yet! Probably tomorrow or Friday :) He loves peas and pears though

  3. I love watching Austin eat, he devours his food!
