{sunny weather and counting our blessings}

 This week the weather in Utah would not make up its mind. one day it was windy, stormy the next warm, sunny blue skies. I was done. But on "rapture day" ( silly people) it was gorgeous.  We deep cleaned our morning and spend the rest of the day outside. we even went to Movies 8 and watched Rango. We only got half way through it till our little man decided it was a  boring sitting down in a dark room watching a movie on a huge screen while eating  endless popcorn and cherry Slurpees. yeah, that will be the last time we take him to a movie till he learns to stay sitted. good thing it only cost a dollar.  We also had a beautiful day today. Will and I played outside for a bit. He found some Dandelions and was trying really hard to blow on them. I was able to capture part of it.  He is so cute. He likes to pay extra attention to detail much like his father. I can tell he will be a very hard worker. I don't know if its the age but he is always working on something. 
He grabs his plastic tools and pretends to fix things. 
If you take a nap around him beware, he might hit you in the face with a plastic/toy hammer. 

  I've been thinking a lot about my blessings this week. Thinking about what a wonderful miracle it was for William to be here.  I can't believe he will be 2 in less then 4 months. This is going by too fast for me. While playing at our yard, I just had this feeling that he needs brothers/sisters or a friend. He is so sweet when he is around other kids.  I would be so sad if he was an only child. I'm an only child  and it was seriously so SO lonely growing up. I pray that we get the opportunity to fill our home with more children. 
  I haven't been feeling well for awhile. to be exact its been 2 years. My doctor was able to find out what my body is going through. Its something that can be treated but I am kind of mad that the doctors didn't detect it earlier. I have been telling them how I was feeling and they would say that it was hormonal thing and that I needed to let my body adjust to having a baby and nursing and well, all those changes. But I always new something was off.  
Basically I may have Metabolic Syndrome. ( found out it runs in the family) Knowing that there really was something wrong help me feel more peace and a drive to get better.
   I exercise at least 4 times a week, eat healthy and drink A LOT of water and I was still not seeing any changes. I couldn't understand why I felt so sleepy and tired all the time even though I was taking vitamins and oh I was not getting pregnant. After much prayer and fast we met with another Doctor and thats when she diagnosed me with these things.
   For 3 months I kept track of the foods I was eating and the kind of exercise I was doing and it was just not adding up.  after more studies she told me that my body was insulin resistant ( among other things) 
   anyways, I usually don't feel comfortable sharing things like these but I really felt impressed to do so. Only because I felt that  there was something wrong and I could give up in finding out.  IF you are struggling with any of these don't just seen on specialist but get an opinion from various. That is what I had to do. Had my doctor pay attention to this problem when I was pregnant I would have a better understanding on how to overcome this at an earlier stage. I am now under a medication and a special diet. I have never felt better. already lots 5 pounds in less then 2 weeks. crazy huh? 

i am grateful that as soon as I get my body back in to normal I wont have to take pills anymore and I will have a better understanding on how to help my body be strong and healthy. I am grateful for modern medicine and for Heavenly Father's plan.
