All better!

We are on the mend, thank the Lord! I am getting better each and every day and Chris had nothing but the common cold. This has been a much better week in the Andrews household. We are enjoying each day together and doing our best to wait patiently for Kate to arrive. I'm sure you can imagine that we are getting very anxious with being days away from her due date. We are ready and just waiting for that perfect day. I have been taking naps everyday and trying to rest up as best as I can yet I still find myself exhausted. I am up a minimum of 3 times a night for the restroom. So annoying. I am about to make a run to target to get me some depends! I guess this is preparing us for parenthood but it's so not as fun! Chris is killing me with his excitement building up. I find him playing with the stroller almost every night and last night I found him in Kate's closet checking out all her clothes. It is the cutest thing ever. I can hardly wait to see him hold his baby girl. She is pretty much the only thing on our minds these days...please keep us in your prayers for peace and patience as we wait to meet her for the first time. My emotions are running wild as the day draws near....almost there! :::sigh:::

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

Trust your gut

If you've followed me on Instagram for a while you've seen that I've been struggling with pain, nausea and some other lovely side effects every single time I put something in my mouth. 😭I've been in the ER, to a specialist and was about to go in for a hidascan before I canceled it 20 hours before I was to go in.  I was uneasy about the scan in the first place. I knew it was going to show issues with my gallbladder. I had every symptom. I also knew that the next step after the scan was surgery to remove my gallbladder. I know it's an organ that isn't quite necessary but being a mom with 4 small babes, surgery wasnt the best option.  I mean it would be nice to have an excuse to lay around for a bit but let's be real, that wouldn't even happen. 🤦🏼‍♀️ #momlife I felt this super strong thing come over me the morning before to scan telling me to cancel it and change my lifestyle a bit.  I love food y'all. That's no surprise. I have 17 pounds to lose to…

TwistShake Baby

Our sweet Sophie Mae is just starting to take a bottle like a pro. You know where I can finally run some errands kid free and not stress about her starving because she only likes the boob.  I've been giving her a bottle 3x a day, the main one being at bedtime to ensure she gets a belly full because sleep is a good thing!  We are in a good transition and I plan to stop nursing when she's around 9 months old.  I've collaborated with TwistShake Baby!
