A month old...

Already!? Where has the time gone? In a way it feels like more than a month with all we have been through but in another way I can't believe it's already been a month. Our little six and a half pound baby is now nine pounds! She is developing some pretty awesome rolls on her legs and has a pretty cute double chin. Shes trying to keep up with her momma, except mine are NOT cute. She continues to make us fall more in love with her everyday. We are convinced that she is the most precious, cutest, sweetest baby in the world. We might be a little biased but hey....it's true! Life as the three of us is quite different than when it was the two of us but we are adjusting well. Kate seems to have her days and nights mixed up most nights. She enjoys having a party in her moses basket for multiple hours during the night. Wish we weren't invited to those parties but it's so hard to deny those baby blue eyes staring at you. Kate is becoming really observant and curious to everything around her. She lifts her strong neck and does the little bobble head thing as she looks around the room and stares at us. One of our favorite things she does is her whistle face. I will have to catch a picture of it soon. Best face ever. We are enjoying each new day with this precious girl and feel so blessed to call her ours. We love you baby girl! And now.... a few pictures from the past couple weeks!

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…

A healthier me.

Remember my Trust your gut  post?I feel like a whole new girl since I wrote that a month ago.  So many things have been confirmed and I feel like my happy healthy self again. 
All because of two things; 1. The gallbladder cleanse that I posted about.  Literally saved my gallbladder and my sanity.  No more stomach pain! And I can drink wine and margaritas without pain again! 🙌🏼
2. I found out that I have a sensitivity to gluten. It's still a mystery to me as to how I developed this but all I know is that when I do have gluten my joints hurt, I get awful headaches and an upset stomach along with bloating. 
Back to my first post about this... I took a "before picture" thinking I was going to 5-10 pounds and then post my "after" picture. 😂😂😂
Truth is, there are still plenty of calories in gluten free food. The other truth is I'm 80-20 gluten free. I still enjoy a few non-gluten free treats here and there (and then pay for it later). 
I love food. I reward myself wit…
