The kids in your FE group will be very excited to have such a wonderful keepsake from the cruise.

Your progress over the last few months has been amazing. Such big changes in such a short time. Your efforts are so inspiring. You can really see the changes in your body from day to day.

Can't wait to see Sami in her Duffy dress again, that one was so cute. Please share the Dale Jr. shirt too, hope she is his good luck charm this year.

I adore that Tiana dress - the fabric you used for it is PERFECT!

And look at you - I am astonished by your progress! You look great!

And little Sami... I cannot believe she is 8 months already!

Okay I am back on the Dis there doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day.

The other day we played around with our April ADRs and added Biergarten and Play and Dine, Sami loved it.

I have lots of pictures to share and I need to do some sewing for April.

Will update from the computer tomorrow.

So one thing we did the last trip that we had never done was rent a car. It was awesome.

So we have a car rented for April and will be buying our groceries at Walmart.

today I am reserving our stroller for April.

So I finally sewed today for the first time since before the cruise. I have 7 items to finish before we leave. 2 are for a launch while I am gone but the others are for the trip.

1. pillowcase for C
2. Frozen top for C
3. Princess something for Sami
4. Animal Kingdom for Sami
5. Sofia for Sami

J is good to go with clothes though I am letting him lead me this trip since he will be in casts.

I promised some pictures so here we go.

Aurora Dress I just finished


Sami in a Dale Jr top I made her


From our Easter photo shoot


and Sami at 9 months


I need to upload our Disney pictures so I will post those in the next few days.

I am getting excited about our trip. I had so much fun in February. I am like a whole new person.

I know MY February trip was just about perfect...and I am very jealous that you are going again! LOL..

Mr D tried to convince me that we should go for Spring Break next month...

Thanks for posting about the stroller...It made me remember that I need to order a wheelchair...


Sammy gets cuter (if that is possible) with each picture you post!

Hi Chiara!!! It's great to see you back, and sewing. I didn't realize you hadn't sewn in so long... I love seeing your lists, and happy you are making more time to Dis!

Little Sami is so adorable - I just love seeing her happy face, I don't think I have ever seen her unhappy.

So one of the reasons I haven't been posting as much on the Dis is because I have really been focusing on my health and fitness.

These are my before through when I finished T-25


and these are my start pictures for the next program I did the 21 day fix.


I do need to take new pictures since the month ended.
Right now I am doing a mix of t-25 and the 21 Day fix but I am excited that I am going to be doing a weight program.

I have also been busy with the kiddos. It is hard trying to find time especially since things have been rough with Jimmy. We saw the neurologist recently and they changed his Diagnosis to included ADHD. We also have surgery scheduled on Monday to fix his ankles so he doesn't toe walk anymore.

My baby boy will be in casts for our next trip but if he walks more normally it will be so worth it.

Sami is Sami and growing and developing by leaps and bounds. She isn't super interested in crawling but I figured I will start encouraging it even though I need to baby proof. though I am a bit of a mean mommy and use the playpen a lot.

She discovered real food finally when we were in Florida so that is fun too.

Today I am making an autograph pillowcase for our trip.

You know, I admire you so much for your dedication and perseverance - you truly do inspire me every single day. I know I've told you that a bazillion times, but it's so true. There are a few people that I really look towards on my journey for inspiration, and you are one of the top. So, not only do you look FANTASTIC, but you are doing this in such a great way - and your progress is amazing!

On a side note... Since you posted your progress pictures on The Dis... I just may be brave enough to post mine. I am going to wait until next week tough, since I am due to take new ones on Monday.

I agree... I sure hope the casts help him.

Yup - she will be crawling before you know it... My girls both learned to crawl and climb at the same time... That was rough! It was so fun when they were trying a new food for the first time too... Good times.

I hope you were able to finish your pillowcase.

Thanks D I need to do new pictures too since it is the end of the month.

Also I want to get my Free 21 Day Fix shirt for completing the program. It is part of the incentive for me.

Thank you for saying I inspire you. You know I love watching your journey too. I truly believe I will be successful this time because I am doing it slow and steady.

so Js surgery went well but the recovery has been hard. He won't stand on his legs. He will weight bear on one but not the other.
We had a wheelchair delivered today, so hopefully that will help. He has been taking 2 naps a day and hasn't returned to school.

This picture of him from Thursday says it all.


I also have been sewing for our trip. I am making the girls coordinated shirt/dress.But I did finish C's pillowcase



Hoping to finish the dress and shirt tomorrow.
