Feeding America

To raise awareness about the national issue of hunger, Hamburger Helper® is partnering with GRAMMY® Award-winning singer, songwriter and actor Tim McGraw to help Feeding America deliver millions of meals to local food banks through the Show Your Helping Hand™ campaign. McGraw will lend his voice to the campaign through a public service announcement which will be distributed nationwide. Click here to view the PSA. According to Feeding America, approximately 5.7 million different people receive emergency food assistance from the organization in any given week.

Support the campaign by submitting codes from specially marked boxes of Hamburger Helper at www.showyourhelpinghand.com or by logging on to make a donation directly to Feeding America. In this year’s campaign, Hamburger Helper has already donated more than half a million dollars - and will contribute up to an additional $100,000 to Feeding America through this program this year. Don’t think one code will make a difference? The 17 cents Hamburger Helper donates per code is enough for Feeding America to deliver one meal to a local food bank.
Hamburger Helper is proud to initiate such a meaningful hunger relief initiative for the second consecutive year. We suggest you share this announcement with your family and friends by forwarding to them at the link below, also found on your Pssst… Personal Page.

Becoming A Mommy!

It's hard to write what becoming a parent does to someone, how it changes you, or even how it shapes you. But somehow without any training you just become one. It's instinct, it's natural. Before Kiley was born Chris and I often had many conversations on what we would do when an situation(ugh, every time I hear this word, I think of the "Situation,")would arise. But now that she is here, we don't even talk about what to do, we just do. So weird.

I think part of it comes from our upbringing. We both had awesome parents. My mom's world revolved around me, I was very spoiled and still am spoiled by my Mom, as is Kiley too =) Same with Chris's Mom as well. I'm glad that I'm able to give Kiley all that I have. Before Kiley was born, we had so much time to our selves, and do things that couples do without kids. You know when you are going to have a baby that you are going to have to give that stuff up somewhat, and you always wonder how you are going to cope with it, but I can honestly say I'm 100% ok with giving up my non-baby life. I'm totally content with my world revolving around Kiley. I'm never thought I'd be ok with someone being so dependent on me, because it's a huge responsibility, but I'm totally ok with it. It's my new life and I love it.

Sometimes I just look at Kiley and am still amazed, as I'm sure I will be the rest of our lives. I can just stare at her and watch her smile and now giggle at me for hours! I never thought I could love something so much.

Kiley is 3 months!

See how I've grown:




Last night Kiley started off being 3 months by giving us a giggle! You are another month older you little stinker! It's hard to believe 3 months ago you came into our world and it was almost 100 degrees outside and today when you turn three months old, we are dressed for winter! Your starting to talk as soon as we look at you. You to love to sit at the table with us when we eat dinner in your bumbo seat! The past couple of weeks you've really started to like the song, Wheels on the bus, you want Mommy to sing it all the time! We are still getting Daddy to sing to you, but he is being silly and say's he can't sing baby songs, but sometimes when Mommy isn't in the same room she hears him singing to you. You are becoming more aware of Puggie and wondering what that fur ball is! You notice people coming in and out of the room now, so we always have to make sure we talk to you or you get upset if you are in your swing and can't see us! You are finally interested in trying to lift your head up, while you hate tummy time, you like to turn your whole body around! You are still an awesome sleeper, sleeping from about 9-6 then eating your breakfast and going back to snuggle with Mommy till about 8:30! I can't wait to see what this month holds for you and what you are going to learn!

Kiley laughed!

Last night while getting her into her PJ's, Chris was blowing raspberries onto her belly and she laughed! We did it for like 20 minutes, because we thought it was so cute! After that she was all giggled out. We had tears in our eyes because we were laughing so hard at her!

Question for the Runners

Here's my question...I'm currently doing the Couch 2 5k Program, if anyone isn't familiar with the program you can check it out here. Anyways, in the beginning when I was running as much I was able to run every other day comfortably. Now that I'm in week 7, running for 25 minutes at time I find it better if I run every two days. My body just fells better and I feel I have more energy. So my question is, runners, how many days do you go in between you runs? Thanks!
