Early Birthday Presents

Through all his searches online, Griffin found these talking Teletubbies on ebay which I won for only $4.00 but they are worth so much more because he absolutely adores them. Since Griffin's birthday is on the 31st I decided to go ahead and get them for him and give them to him because he is just one of those kids who doesn't like surprises. He was disappointed at Christmas when he unwrapped his presents because he said that he should have gotten them when he was with me not for Christmas, so I am not going to make him wait for his birthday presents.

As you may have noticed above the Single Moms Raising Autistic Sons badge I have a ticker that shows how much weight I have lost (56 lbs.) and how much I have to go to reach my target weight of 140 lbs. (29 lbs. to go). I will keep updating it and post a before and after photo once I reach my target weight. Just a wee bit more to go and I am so eager to reach my goal!!!

And congrats on your weight loss!

I just noticed that ticker! You are amazing Lora! What an inspiration!

And this picture makes me tear up! He is so darn cute. You can just tell that he is so happy and in all his glory, even while asleep. This melts my heart!!!

I love how snug as a bug he looks in this pic. So sweet! You are a bargain shopper. Smart thinking on giving them to him early :)

Teletubbies scare me! I was never fan! *L* but that photo of Griffin and all his Tubbies is too freakin cute for words!

And I saw that ticker awhile ago! I am so proud of you! I want to loose a few more pounds to get to my goal.. maybe you can be my weight loss buddy?
